College #76

Oh my gosh has it really been almost a month since my last post? Time flies when you're ridiculously busy with stuff you don't want to be busy with!

Before I go into the craziness of the last month (I feel like 2015 has been a really weird year so far...) here's my stitching progress.



Getting closer and closer to that elusive page finish! Which means closer and closer to finishing the whole thing!!

On to life stuff. I started the temp job June 1 and had the worst week in the history of first weeks at work (for me, anyway). In fact, it has been kind of a crappy three weeks of work. Allow me to elaborate.

Day 1, I got food poisoning. Day 2, I had a full-on wardrobe malfunction that nobody saw fit to tell me about until I got home. I'm hoping nobody told me because nobody noticed. It was pretty awful. Day 3, I had another bad health-related day that was different than day 1 but I don't want to talk about in detail. Suffice it to say I wasn't having fun, but was better off than day 1. Day 5 H³ got sick at work. And day 11 I had my first accident ever on the way to work. I don't want to talk about the details of the accident because the insurance agencies are taking care of it right now but I'm okay, the other driver is okay, and my car is in the shop getting some body work done.

The highlight has been that for some unknown reason that I will not argue with, the insurance agency set me up with a crazy sports car rental while my car is getting fixed. Check this ridiculous thing out!

Since I've been hyper stressed out and haven't had much alone time AND I have a ridiculous car I would never actually buy I've decided to take some me time today and go to Carmel and enjoy myself. Then I'll probably stop by a stitching store on my way home. BECAUSE WHY NOT. H³ is very supportive of this idea and is practically pushing me out the door. We'll ignore the part where if I leave he gets garage space to work on his bike for a while (that's bicycle, not motorcycle. H³ is also quite talented and builds bicycles from scratch).

So that's my last couple of weeks in a nutshell. I hope it gets better from here.

Either way, happy stitching!

Now that doesn't sound like a pleasant way to start a job, I am just happy that you are all right (sort of). I hope things will get better for you =)

Great work on College, you can do it! =)

Stitching looks great, and sorry you've had such an awful few weeks.
Had my first accident on the way to work a couple of months ago, and it really shook me up. The insurance company decided (and to be fair I mostly agree) that it was my fault, but it really scared me. I still hate having to put out at the junction over two months on.

Stitching looks FABULOUS! Work issues, we should meet for a drink and commiserate!
What stitching store do you go to? Are they on line? I'm lucky enough to have one in my town, and considering how rare an actual real life, not online store is, I really count my blessings on this fact. There is nothing quite like walking into a store and wandering around with the idea that you will pick up anything that catches your eye.

We don't know how lucky we are sometimes.

@Rai Rai's Stitches:

I go to Madonna's Needleworks in Morgan Hill, California, but I don't like to go there when the owner isn't there. The lady who takes care of everything when the owner is gone isn't the nicest, and she doesn't let me browse but insists on getting everything off the shelves for me. It drives me crazy!

I recently found out that there are other LNS's in the area, though, I just haven't had a chance to go to them yet.
