I realize I haven't posted for a few days, but I have been both busy and lazy. LOL. Work work work is the theme since Christmas is around the corner. While at my second job yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to take my car for an oil change and get my tires rotated since it's been a year. It's nice the shop is just around the corner. I drop it off in the morning he fits me in and I pick it up before I go home. Anyway, the shop owner is awesome. He is always the bearer of bad news. LOL. I go in to pay for my car and he looks at me and says we have a problem. LOL I said you didn't try to put my window down did you? My passenger side window motor has been shot for a few months, but hey I driver window right? Last thing to fix on my list. He said no, but said did you know you have an oil leak??? What??? He proceeds to take me to my car lay on the ground wipe his hand underneath and sure enough we've struck oil. UGGGHHH... I need new oil cooler lines (whatever those are). Then he says AND you need new back brakes and rotors. WHAT????? So of course me I start bawling like a baby because I know I don't have the money to fix it. He's like it needs to be done next week and you can borrow my jeep while I fix it. OK but how am I going to pay for it??? He says he will let me do a payment plan since he knows my situation. He looks at me and says "your kids are what's important and I can wait on my money." What a great guy huh???? Too bad he's married LOL. To top it off he says and I can't believe you still have the original battery in this car (it's a 2004) come winter you probably won't be able to start it in the morning if it's cold. TOUCHDOWN I am officially depressed. Then of course I come home pick up my mail. Lo and behold there is my final bill from my attorney. Yep more money I don't have and he doesn't accept payment plans. So I decided I may have to donate a kidney just to pay my bills. LOL. Hey anyone want a hand painted sign???? LOL
So as not to end on a sour note my Mom stopped over the other night after church and brought me some of my old cross stitch things I had done way back in the day. She decided it was time to clean out her sewing room so she is bringing me all kinds of stuff. Anyway, I believe I was in high school when I did these... So yep I crafted way back then too.
I think I tried to wash this way back and some of the purple bled down on the left corner by the berries so I just put it away because I was mad. So Mom brought it to me wrinkled and all.
The next one isn't too bad I guess for a kit...
I know she brought me some other ones, but of course I can't remember what I did with them at the moment, but when I find them I'll show you. Other than that I've been working on my swaps here and there. I know not too exciting, but today I hope to go to the thrift store to find some goodies.
