Winchester House

Earlier this month I made a decision to finish 3 BAP's before the end of the year. I would like to finish: Cherokee Child, Winchester House and Daughters of Longborne. I haven't worked on Winchester house since my Disney trip this past July. Can you believe that??? Since I decided to finish these three...that means I have to have a rotation again. Did you know that there are only 45 days left in this year???? I did the math and need to finish 1170 stitches a day....I really don't think that is possible...but I am going to try and finish them!! Winchester house is coming along nicely, I just have some backstitching to complete on this new tower section that I worked on today. Cherokee child is coming along nicely. I am just about to finish with page six which means only two more pages to go.

On the personal side....School is kicking my backside this year. I am not kidding!! I can't seem to catch up. My to do list is getting longer by the day. However, I can relax know that I only have to work 3 days this week before Thanksgiving break. The only reason I am not working the whole week is my mom is having surgery on Wednesday and I will be taking care of her on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mark and I were watching How I Met Your Mother this week and they were talking about when you get into a relationship you gain weight. Sometimes, you let things hair, nails etc. I will be the first to say, I have done this!!! I weighed 105 lbs when I met Mark...Lets just say I have gained a few lbs. since then!!!! I have decided to lose some weight and make some changes to make myself look better and feel better . I am starting with the hard part - the weight. I have started taking my sweats to work and stopping by the park on the way home. I walk for 15 minutes in one direction and then if I want to go home, I have to turn around and walk another 15 minutes. So basically, I walk 30 minutes. I have cut down to one coke a day. That is one thing I won't give up. I LOVE t o drink my daily coke.....I am not as cranky when I have it. This week I walked 6 days at 30 minutes a I walked for 3 hours. YAY ME!!! I figure that come spring when everything is coming in new...I will go get a new hair do, nails and NEW CLOTHES!!! I will keep you updated on how the weight loss is going.
