Back to work tomorrow

Yep....spring break is almost over and I will have to be back at work tomorrow morning. I have enjoyed my time off. I did not enjoy all the papers I graded yesterday with the horrible test scores. I am not sure what I am going to do because most of the kids in my classes will fail if I don't let them correct their tests.

Today was a good Easter...I got DH chocolate and he forgot to get me anything. This kinda hurt my feelings but we did go buy new furniture this week. I still need to go to HL so I can get some 14 count fabric for a prize I need to send off this week. Brigen is doing much better. His ear isn't as red but it is still kinda yucky!!

I worked on my model all weekend so I can't show this off...but I can show off Cherokee Child. I am about 1/2 way finished with the third page.

Poor Brigen

My poor little baby boy has a very bad ear infection. He kept shaking his head on Wed. Night and when I finally checked his ear was red and very inflammed so off to the vet we went. He was so funny, when the vet would hold the earscope, Brigen would hide behind me...when she put it down...he ran to her....we played this game for about 3 tries when finally she moved closer to me and grabbed onto his collar. She took one look and said poor thing. She didn't even try to look deep into it.

When the little tech girl came in with his medicine I had to ask her show me how do it because I have never done this before. She told me it was just like if you have kids and I still looked blank. Told her this was my first ear infection with my kids since the dogs are my children. She just laughed. Brigen was a real trooper. Mark can't stand this infection because it smells. We never realized how bad they smell but it is awful!!

On the stitching note...I have updated the picture of Tiger on the right. I have finished 58% of tiger. I have stitched over the 1/2 way mark!!! Yes!! That is exciting.

finally home

I am so excited to be home!! I have spent the last few days with my uncle who has been very ill. It was a very tiring time. I had to monitor his medicine and make sure he took all the correct meds. He was a little out of his head because the dr's. didn't realize what meds they had him on and they were making him very loopy. He had such terrible headaches that he is scared he is going to get ill again so he takes the good stuff before he tires the OTC items. I finally was able to come home today.

While at his house I was able to stitch alot I finished 9 sections of Inspirations. I only have 15 sections to go! LOL!!! I was also able to finish 1/2 a page of tiger..will update the picture later. My goal is to finish Tiger by the end of summer because he is going to be my fair entry. I have a title to defend.

4 finishes in a weekend!

That is a record for me. I stitched 4 disney ornaments this weekend. I stitched Timon, Jasmine, snow white and tinkerbell. The turned out pretty cool.

It seems like I haven't posted in forever. Mark bought me the coolest birthday present. He bought me the Art of Disney Kit "Happiest Celebration On Earth" I loved it. I dyed some navy fabric and it is looking good if I do say so myself.

Stella came back. The lady who took her brought her over on the pretense of a playdate and she just left her. I am trying to find her a home but no luck it has been a week.

Not much more...I am off to bed.
