I am NOT Slacking...

Well, good evening everyone!  I bet you're wondering where I've been.  I have had a lot going on this week.  However, in 2 days... count them 2 days... I will be a one full time job and one part time job (instead of 2 part time jobs) woman.  I LOVE teaching so does that count as a job?  I don't want to give that up besides it's only a couple of hours a week.  Anyway,  my leave of absence from one starts on Tuesday.  I will be so glad to have a little time here at home to catch up and take care of me.  I have been working multiple jobs for a little over 5 years now and it's time to slow down a little.  I'm not getting any younger.  I am finishing up odds and ends of things like renewing my National Registry for Paramedics.  That needed to be in by Monday, but I already turned it in and it has been accepted.  Not that I plan to move from Ohio, but it is a good thing to have just in case in addition to my state certification.

I have also been busy designing in between my bird orders.  I have four new cross stitch patterns that need stitched.  Any takers to help me out?!?!? lol.  I'm still working on birds so I can't start these until they are done.  But here is a sneak peek...






I have also come up with a few punchneedle patterns out of a book I have about Pennsylvania Dutch designs I have I'd like to try...  Obviously I won't be selling these as patterns because they are NOT my designs.


I also went for a pulmonary function test this week for my lungs and am waiting to hear back from the doctor as to what we are going to do next for my fast heart rate and shortness of breath.  My ankle is healing..SSSSLLOOWWLLYY... the new EMT's I'm teaching are enjoying the up close and personal look at it as it heals. lol  My tail bone is still very sore from falling on it especially sitting in the truck at work all day.  It's literally a pain in my butt waiting for it to heal!!!!

Well, friends I thought it was spring, but tonight I'm guessing not...


I keep hearing the tap tap tapping at my windows as the sleet is hitting it.  I am so glad I am not working right now because I would probably fall and injure myself again no doubt.  I am hoping we don't get too much snow overnight as I work tomorrow for 12 hours.  YUCK!!!! Then I work my last shift at my part time job Monday then, my friends, I'm hoping the magic begins...  yes completing some new projects and finishing up some old ones!  Mark my words... "I'll be back." like Arnold Schwarzenegger would say.  Hopefully all will go well and I won't go back to my one part time job!

Sounds like things are moving right along for you Mary. Hope the ankle is healing!
I don't cross stitch but if you come up with some punch needle designs let me know! I blame you and another gal for getting me started, lol...
I've purchased a few and now I can't stop :)

These past years you have worked hard and bettered yourself. You have much to be proud of. Some would have given up but you made a home for your children worked with what you had and worked hard. Those birds are so pretty. I hope you mend fast and feel better soon. My Gram broke her tail bone long ago. She got a thick square of foam rubber fabric store cut a circle in it to sit her bottom in. Helped her. Just a thought.
