Do I really have to work today?

I had such a wonderful weekend. I relaxed all day Saturday with the girls and had a lot of fun. I spent Sunday surrounded by cross stitch supplies in full organizing mode.

When the alarm went off this morning, I looked at my husband and said "Is it really Monday?" He grunted a yes and we proceeded to pry ourselves out of bed and get ready for another work week. I just doesn't feel like it should be Monday today. I'm sure I missed a weekend day in there somewhere. :)

temper control

The control I have over my temper has been sorely strained this week. I try my best not to lose my temper and raise my voice but I found myself right on the verge of it several times this week.

I don't know if I'm developing a more volatile temper again or if I'm just being continually aggravated this week. It may be a combination of both.

When I was in my early teens, my temper would flare and the slightest provacation but as I got older it cooled down and it got to where it took a lot of aggravation to make me lose my temper. My mom told me it was a combination of age maturing me and my own realization that constantly losing my temper was not going to help me in life that probably turned my temper from an instant ignite to a slow burn.

You guys will have to pray with me that I can keep my temper at the slow burn stage cause it really isn't very pretty or nice when I do blow up out of anger.

still feeling quiet

There just isn't a lot going on right now. I'm stitching. Listening to ebooks from the library. Working. Sleeping.

There is a stitching get together this weekend that I will have a blast at and I'm really looking forward to it. I got hired as a model stitcher for Dinky Dyes and I've got my first model on it's way to me. I really wish it would get here soon. I want to work on it now!

Today is the last day of work for 3 1/2 weeks for one of my coworkers who's going on a trip to Europe. Boss is in Italy until August 3rd. The office will be a lot quieter with the two loudest people gone for the rest of the week. It's been a really slow month here and there isn't much going on.

I lost my temper last week. Normally this is a bad thing. This time it was a good thing though cause it got me a very much needed day off and weekend away from home. Hopefully between this weekend and my weekend away, my batteries will recharge and I can relax again.

Not much going on here. I've been working and stitching on Cats. I'm almost half way done with Cats now which is a good thing. Not much else going on my life right now. Just going day by day.

One of the coworkers is leaving next week for a 3 week trip overseas. This means that there is no way for me to go to CATS Nashville unless I drive up Friday after work and only attend on Saturday and then drive back home. This isn't real appealing since I'd be on my own during the drive so I'll just wait for next year.

Lots of Good News

I had a good week last week and just no time to blog. In the last week:

I paid off my Nissan. Yeah!

I ended up getting the bon jovi collection and I love it!

I saw Pirates 2 and had a blast even if we were in the theatre for 3 hours and needing a bathroom desperately by the end.

I finished the Fair Revenge Piece. Now I have to find the digital camera and actually hook up the printer so that I can post a picture. I can bring it to the gtg on the 29th though so that you guys can see it in person.

I just had an all around good week. Hopefully I'll have a little more free time this week.

Good Weekend

I had a really good weekend that has recharged my batteries. I did a lot of running around for work stuff on Saturday morning but relaxed the afternoon away at a friends house stitching and watching movies. Saturday night I took Justin out to Joe's to celebrate the fact that we have paid off our car. Yeah!

Sunday, I spent the day stitching and visiting with a friend that had come over for a day away. I actually managed to finish the border on the fair revenge piece so I'm getting very close to being done on it.

Today I'm at work while DH is home. He's gonna do laundry today since I didn't get much of it done yesterday. I expect today to be very slow. It's probably gonna take forever for the day to be over but I will make it through.
