I kinda abandoned my last blog, so here's my new one. It will be devoted to whatever pops into my head, in all honesty. But I have the intention of using it mostly to show my cross stitch and weight loss. I will babble about my family, pets, volunteer work, books, video games, movies, ect. Like I said; whatever pops into my head. I will try to remember to post at least once a week.
As far as my stitching goes, I will post pics as I get to projects. I've got too many started to show them all in one post. This is what I'm currently working on. It's Raise The Roof's Sweetheart Fence. That is the picture from the last time I worked on it, in 2007. Yeah, it's been awhile.
I am currently trying to whittle down my WIPs. I got up to nineteen. I started this year with seventeen, and I've had two new smallish starts. And I also finished my first HAED, Lee-Anne Seed's Oriental Courage SK. I cheated and stitched it on red fabric instead of stitching all that red background. So I've got eighteen WIPs/UFOs now, I think. I'd have to actually go through and count them to know for sure. I can't remember what all I started, what I kitted up, or even what I bought!
As for weight loss, at my highest, I weighed 185 lbs. After a year and a half of working out and changing my eating habits (mostly, I still love Bojangles), I'm down to 139. I have also learned that a number on the scale is not a big deal. No number will ever make me as happy as being the cool mom at the park because I play tag with the kids.
My husband is very sweet, too. We got our tax return today, and he bought me a new laptop and a new iPod. He's also getting himself a new computer, which is why I get my stuff. The disk drive on this one is broken, and I had asked him to fix it. After he explained that he couldn't, he started looking at a new one for me. He knew I would be pissed if he got a new computer and he wouldn't even fix mine.
My old iPod had actually been his, but since he didn't use it much, we agreed it would be mine until he wanted it back. To me that translated to I could have that one, and when he wanted one again, he'd just go buy himself a new one. About a week ago, he came up to me and said, "How attatched are you to that iPod?" I told him, "I don't know. Are you gonna buy me a new one?" I was so suprised when he asked what kind I wanted. So today we went to Best Buy and bought my new, pretty, blue Nano. And my new computer is ordered, and will be here next week! It will be blue, too.
The rest of our tax money will go to bills, getting the car fixed, and getting me some new glasses. My current pair is older than my children. I got those when I was fifteen! My youngest, Darin, broke them when he was 18 months old. He's in kindergarten now. I am so looking forward to being able to see well again!
