More Progress...

I mentioned on Saturday that I got some sewing done...
Remember this post?

Yep, this is the next stage of those projects...
Almost done!

Amazing... many things can get done when you put your mind to it...
...and are by yourself all day!

MBB took off for a pool tournament today and I decided to stay home and get some stuff done.

Wow...did I get some stuff done!

I did some...
- Cleaning (though is that one ever truly done?)
- Purging (any readers want some books?)
- Christmas Shopping (keyword: some... so much to still do)
- Sewing
- Wrapping
- Blogging

I think I missed a few things, but I am feeling pretty freaking good about the amount that I got done today!  Gonna try to put a few more hours on sewing tomorrow to get those presents done...

Now, if I could just figure out when I'm gonna get my Christmas Baking done...

Once Again...

...time got away from me and I haven't posted in forever.

I remember when I used to post almost everyday.
Priorities tend to change in life.
At least mine do.

And I have had so many priorities lately that I have been running pretty ragged.
I went so hard for so long that my body finally said "NO MORE"!

I was sitting at my desk, on one of those rare days when I was actually in the office, feeling fine one minute and horrible the next.
After trying to self-medicate for five days (and different symptoms everyday), I finally gave up and went to the doctor.
Four prescriptions and five days later - I was finally myself again and sounded like myself again.

Did I mention that I was asleep more than I was awake those ten days?
That was probably the best medication...

And I tried to do my site visit to Michigan while self-medicating.
Not such a good idea...

But, I am finally through the crazy time at work, so I am going to try to be better about blogging until work gets crazy again.
Notice: I said "try"...

I admit - I'm a few days late posting this, but I was traveling on the actual day and didn't have a chance to get on my laptop.

So, I hope that those of you in the USA had a wonderful holiday with family, friends and those who are important to you.

Take a moment to just take it all in.  I have learned over the last year to never take anyone for granted... You never know when they will be there and when they won't.

I was back in my old neighborhood for a dreaded doctor's appointment...
So I decided to celebrate being able to use my favorite dry cleaner (my wallet was very happy too!) and my favorite grocery store... A treat made it to work to celebrate Thanksgiving...

It can't be too bad... it has fruit... right?
I REALLY miss this grocery store since I moved to Kentucky...

Fun Stuff...

...Is not being kind to me right now.
A few ~70 hour weeks...
Lots of travel...
Things still being processed in my life with the move...
And now I get screamed at over the phone at work.

Hard to let that one go so easily.
I'd love to think that I am so good at my job that I can handle anything, but I couldn't.

I'd love to take the mindset that he had something else going on...
That he had other issues causing him to blow up at me...
But right now, that's pretty hard to do.

So, I did the only thing I could, I hung up on him.
I may hear about that one, but right now, I just don't care.
