Back to work

Went back to work after having 5 days off. Ended up coming home with a stomach ahce and then got a migraine. BLAH! Really wanted to find a blog or website that showed me some things I can make with the cartridge that came with my Cricut. So far no luck. :(

Was going to sew some too....but the meds I take for the migraine makes me not a good idea to use a sewing machine! lol

Guess I will go lay down for a bit. It is only 6:30 and I feel like it is 10:00 at night!

Great Black Friday deal....I got the Cricut! I have been wanting one for about 5 years now. I am so happy. I am now trying to create crafts. I am also suppose to be working on my Christmas quilt. I cut a few squares out, but cut my finger a little so I stopped.

We got our tree up today, but no lights yet. I haven't been feeling the greatest today. So, hopefully tomorrow we will get it finished and then I want to craft more!

Moving on

Well, I was so excited last night cuz I got to get two new pairs of pants and a pair of dress boots for work. However, the trying on clothes part was awful! I REALLY need to lose this 55 pounds! So, this morning I packed my work out clothes and am going to go work out today at lunch. Maybe later I will even go to the rec. center and walk the track.

Last night on the way home my husband and I got to talking about how I feel about losing weight, or anything for that matter. I always start something but never finish. Is it because I am afraid I will succeed. Could be. Is it that I am afraid if I lose weight I will actually succeed at something and then want to be on my own and do my own thing. My husband said, "lets take the chance hon". I think he said that because he knows I will feel so much better about myself if I just lose the weight. I won't be depressed, I won't be sad, I won't get these stupid migraines all the time and I will be happy.

So, today I start (for the 101 time) to watch what I eat and work out every day! I even put my pedometor on today! My goal is to lose 55 pounds by this time next year! Shouldn't be too hard if I do it the right way!! That is a little more then 4 pounds a month. I need to do this for me!

I need to do this to show myself I can do something and finish it! I need to prove that I am a strong person and I can do anything!!!

Been some time....

Welp, been awhile. Looks like over a year since I have blogged. I am really feeling the need though to find some place to put my thoughts, dreams and hopes. I need to make some changes in my life and just not sure how to go about it.

My family is big, and we are all very close. For the most part we all live in the same State. I love that I have such a big family. Family get-togethers are so fun, like the holidays. My favorite was always Thanksgiving. I love walking into grandma's and smelling the turkey cooking. I have such great memories of when we use to go down to the farm when we were kids.

Grandma and grandpa lived on a farm. Not an animal farm. Just lots and lots of acreage. We would leave after school and head down for the weekend. I remember all us kids would sleep on the floor and I remember after dinner the adults would play cards.

I have so looked forward to as an adult being able to do this. But, some how it has all got lost in the hustle and bustle of things. We don't have time anymore for everyone to sit around the table and play cards, or to sit and enjoy and talk with each other. It makes me sad.

It makes me sad that these years are flying by and we do not seem to have time for each other anymore. It makes me sad that I feel guilty if I do spend this time with my family. Like I am "putting" out someone because he is not wanting to be there. I hate that feeling.

I need a change, and just don't know how to go about it. Someday, I will figure this all out.

Working late

Well...It is Friday night and I have to stay until 5:30 to make up time. I have been working on some very high profile accounts and thought that even though I had to leave early yesterday my manager would have said I could leave on time today and not worry about the quotes. But, I think if we get these accounts she said something about taking me out to hey...that is not bad.

I need to post some pictures of the two squares I got sewn. They are SOOO cool! The other night I thought I was hungry...but really I was just I went down in the basement and started sewing. And guess what....I didn't eat junk then! I think sewing is going to be my new weight loss tool! lol

Actually I'm hoping we can out for dinner tonight or sometime this weekend. I feel like a nice big meal....I know that sounds bad...but I just feel the need! lol

Hopefully I will remember how Sara told me to post pictures and get my pics up. Maybe more sewing will get done too! I think I need more fabric! JoAnne's here I come! :o)

Catching up....

Welp, I've been around. This past weekend not feeling too good. But, better today. Not a whole lot going on. I got half a block sewn! I cut my finger last weekend and it is just now feeling better. Silly me...cut it on a veggie slicer thingy. So, I was trying to take it easy on my finger, so I didn't get much of anything done.

I really need to concentrate on losing this weight and get into better shape! It has been so nice outside and chasing Jake around the yard is soooo tiring for me! lol

Since I'm sitting at work....I better get back to work.

Am I forgetting something....

Well, now that the class is over, I feel like I should be doing some kind of studying or something...instead of sitting her catching up on blog reading. :o)

Today I'm going to head over to the Cloverleaf Rec center and then to the grocery store. We are so out of stuff to eat and snack on. Healthy of course! Then later this evening and tomorrow I want to sew.

Last night we went to eat for my mom's b-day. My aunt was there and said she bought the Cricut! I was like OMG!!! I see that on tv and want it. But it is a lot of money...and well, my scrapbooking stuff just doesn't get any use. Well, she wants all of us ladies to get together in a few weeks and scrapbook!! I'm so EXCITED!!! So if all goes well Friday the 13th we will be scrapbooking!! whoohoo!!!
