Howdy all!

The month of December has just flown by!! For the first year ever, all my Christmas shopping is completed. (Only because I had to ship the gifts down to my parents!) My flight is confirmed and I leave on Saturday for Florida. I'm so excited! It's going to be a wonderful few days with my family; going to church on Christmas Eve, turkey dinner and presents on Christmas Day and of course, shopping and S.E.X.!!!! This time I'm going to find out if there are any other needlework shops in Jacksonville. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to board the puppies while I'm away. I was feeling guilty about having to leave them somewhere (even though they're staying at a wonderful vet's office), but once I found out the price my guilt turned to shock!! Their stay in the Doggie Hotel is costing more than my plane ticket! It's a good thing I love them pups:)

Yesterday was the last day of school for the kids. It was actually only a half day for the children, which is just so silly. I only had two kids show up, so we had a fun day eating snacks, playing and watching a Christmas movie. Today was a half day for us teachers, but our principal let us go at 10a.m., so I headed on to the gym for a workout.

Yes, believe it or not, I have finally pulled myself of the couch and found a gym. In January, I'm actually going to be teaching fitness classes for children with developmental delays. What fun! The gym has smaller versions of the strength training equipment for the kiddos, all hydraulic based which is safer for the children to use. I'm really looking forward to this, and also to building some muscle tone and losing a few inches, I hope.

I've continued to make progress on the baby sampler, and I'm going to stitch on it again this evening. I'll post a pic of it before I leave on Saturday.

Well, I'm off to stitch on Winnie:)

Evening all. I'm not putting out a full fledged post this evening as there's a show on TV tonight I just have to see:) SciFi channel is playing a mini series called Tin Man - an updated adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. I saw part one last night, and now I've got to see parts 2 & 3! So, I'm off to stitch and watch:)

However, here's a quick update on the sampler.
