Yesterday was a somewhat relaxing day- Rob went to a fishing expo in Raleigh- I took Hanna to get her hair cut after zumba class yesterday morning, then she, David, and I got some lunch. I took her to a friend's house then David and I headed out to my somewhat-LNS. It's 20 minutes away, or thereabouts. I got most of the beads I needed -she didn't have 552 so I guess I will have to order those, since Michael's only has a handful of Mill Hill beads left. :P Also got some larger Q-snaps that will hopefully work for my alphabet SAL. And I got Blackbird Design's leaflet "Willow House" at a bargain price! I will probably need to go back soon and get a bead organizer or two. We came home, I got some things done around the house, and later got some time after David went to bed, before Rob came home, to watch whatever I wanted to watch on TV and do some stitching. lol
Today, was not so relaxing. David and I went to church this morning-we were late. After church (it started at 8:30) we got some breakfast, then headed over to Michael's, as I wanted to see if by some chance they still carried the above-mentioned bead organizers. They don't. But David found plenty he wanted, and changed his mind several times. He onely came out with some Lightning McQueen pencils and an Alvin and the Chipmunks coloring book. I did find some of the foam board I use for framing in the clearance aisle- I guess they couldn't sell it cause it was pink on one side? I got a huge board for only $1.50! Which is awesome because I got a bunch of frames at Christmas that my dad made for me. Which brings me to my failed ..already..
New Year's resolution.
Which was, to "finish" a stitched item a week. I have piles of finishes in a drawer that have not been framed or made into anything. I had hoped to frame some today, or at least one, and didn't make it. I had planned to do it after lunch. But we got home from Michael's, Rob wanted to go out for lunch, then wanted us to go grocery shopping with him. He does the shopping cause he does most of the cooking. So by the time we got home from shopping, and I picked Hanna up from her friend's house, and came home and helped her with some things, and do some housework, and eat dinner, and take Hanna to her confirmation class.. then pick her up, you get the picture. And I hate doing things like sewing and framing later at night because inevitably something goes wrong, and it's late, and it ends up waiting til another day anyway. Phew. Sorry to unload like that! I guess I'm just a bit frustrated. Maybe I can frame/finish two things this week and get caught up.
On a positive note, reading Sharlotte's blog reminded me I had wanted to look into the flylady program, as she mentioned it in her blog. So I have joined, and begun, and looking forward to feeling a bit more in control of things around the house!
I guess I better go if I want to get any stitches in on "Mr. Snow Tired!" So here is a pic of David after going to the LNS with mama yesterday- he looks a bit how I feel!
