OK, That's It.....

So you ever just get fed up with stuff? Not big stuff, but all the little stuff that just pecks away at you? Arghhh, that's the kind of mood that I am in. I am going to clean house, both literally and figuratively and get myself back in order. Alot of it has to do with my job. It was supposed to be a few hours a day, but has turned into a more-than-full-time sort of thing. And I am in charge, which is more stressful than you would think. Even for me and I like to be in charge. So, I am getting it together. We are going to start on some house redo's and I hope that it will be a good experience. I will blog about them and I am trying to remember to take before and after pictures. I have way to much clutter and I feel a purge coming on. Things have to change. Does this sound like a pep talk? Well, I guess it is.
Had a fun weekend - spent time with the little man and pretty princess on Saturday and Sunday drove to Southfield, MI where #5 had a hockey game for their league championships AND THEY WON! 7-2! Yeah! Big banner and trophy and Tigers tickets, oh my! Next weekend is the State Championships in Jackson, MI. Thanks for the tips on the cross stitch shop there! I look forward to going and getting some stash, for sure.
OK, off to start the first house project. Our master bathroom is (wait for it) .....carpeted. Yuck. I know. So, the carpet is coming out and new tile is going in. We will do everything else from this tile and we are very excited about the new floor. The same tile is going in the rest of the house to replace the nasty carpet, as well. Only the kitchen floor, second bath and laundry room floors are staying. They are still in good shape and they look good with the new tiles. Well, off to move stuff out of the bathroom and wait for Big Daddy to tear up the carpet! I am so excited!! Wish us luck!
Oh, the ornament tree arrived, but I haven't had a chance to put it up yet. Maybe tomorrow~!

Still Stitching!

On my plan of stitching an ornament a month. I have a new reason - I just bought an black metal ornament tree - Display treasured ornaments or keepsakes on our charming metal Ornament Tree.which is about 3 feet tall. I am thinking about getting the larger one if the price goes down any further. I can fill this baby up for sure! I ordered the black and I can't wait to get it! Maybe on payday i will get the bigger one, too. Even the smaller one is really cute! I can't wait to see it all filled up with the ornaments I am stitching. I am going tonight to buy a new memory card for my camera and then I can post some pics. My old one is filling up fast!

Not The Best Pickup Line In The World

This was overheard last night in a local gas station - "Aye, how yo babies?" He then proceeded to ask the girl to a party. She said, "Nah, been working all day. You know how it is. No, you don't but I'm tired." Too funny.
Our trip up north was successful and fun. We came in 5th place, not bad considering we played up a division and there were some kids that looked like they had a wife and children in the stands. BIG boys. Found a great little teacher's shop and got some great stuff for Easter for my work and had a fun time at the ski lodge. Last night, the boys won their semi-final game and we play next Sunday for our league championship and we are going to the state championship in Jackson! This is a busy time for hockey families, with the season winding up.
I hope to post some pictures soon of the projects I have finished and the Blackbird book I got - Divine! Take care, friends.
