Good morning world!
Good news! I finally have a job!!!! I will complete the paperwork on Monday and begin on August 11th. That's a load off my mind:) MIL is here this week, so we're off to St. Augustine today. Thank you Dani for the blog award. I will get it posted on here tonight I hope.

Happy Friday! Even though I'm not working at the moment, I still love Fridays. I was going to try to cut the grass today - it's getting long, and since it's that bermuda grass it's also very thick. But it poured yesterday, and it doesn't look like it's going to be any drier today. So I think I'll do a few chores in the house and then do some stitching this afternoon. I'm hoping to finish my snowman mitten ornament today and get back on to my secret piece.
I'm off to clean. More later.

Evening all!
Well most of the boxes have been unpacked, although the garage is still a mess. We'll get to that over the weekend though. Today I was finally able to sit down and stitch for a couple of hours. I also watched a movie called Mission to Mars while I stitched. Not a bad flick I guess.
We're still hoping for the house in TN to rent or sell. I keep believing that something has got to happen soon with it. It's definately a bit of a stressor. I'm also still hunting for a job down here. Duval Co. is under yet another hiring freeze, which is supposed to lift on July 21st. It's just a little nerve wracking waiting to see where all the cards fall. However, I think I'll relax and enjoy some stitching time while I wait.
I did make it out to the beach last week. A friend and I went to one of the little state parks on the beach. It was fantastic! You could drive right down onto the sand to park, and it wasn't as crowded as Jax Beach. We wandered around the point to where the tide pools were and found starfish, minnows and hermit crabs. It was very cool. Unfortunately I neglected to put suntan lotion on my feet and got a sunburn on my feet and ankles which then got swollen, so I had cankles for a few days. I would like to say I've learned my lesson, but I never seem to.
Well, I'm off to get ready for bed.

Hi all!

It's been a while since I've posted, but I claim unpacking horror as my excuse! I never knew I had so much stuff - It's just crazy. I'm really noticing it this time because the house in TN is a good bit bigger than this one is, and we're running out of space! Just another good reason to get rid of some of this crap though:)
Stitching has also fallen by the wayside, although yesterday I unpacked it all and got my lamp set up by my favorite corner of the couch. Perhaps by the weekend I'll get a little done on one of my ornaments.
Right now, I'm getting ready to head out to Walmart. We bought a new grill there the other day, and the handle on it is broken, so I have to lug the darn thing back up to Walmart and get it replaced. Argh! What a pain in the tail. Hopefully it won't take too long.
So, I'm off to Walmart. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
