I can't believe we're already into November! This year has just flown by. Thanksgiving is just 2 1/2 weeks away, then Christmas only 3 1/2 weeks after that! Anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? I know I sure haven't:) Soon tho....
Tuesday is Veteran's Day, so that means a day off school. We were also supposed to have tomorrow off, but because of Hurricane Fay, we are using tomorrow as a make up day. So, Tuesday is going to be a stitching day for me. I'm going to do the backstitching to finish that little color varieties piece and then start an advent piece that was in my latest magazine. Hope I have some fabbie here - I'm going to hunt it out tonight so I'm ready to go on Tuesday morning:)
This has been a wonderful weekend. DH and I played hooky on Friday and spent the afternoon at Dave and Buster's, which is like a Chucky Cheese for adults. We had a hoot! Playing games, winning tickets. Can't wait to go back:)
Today is an EQ day, so I'm playing as I type this up. Kicking monster butt and blogging at the same time! Technology rocks!!!! lol
Well, I'm off to finish this quest, then do a quick fabbie hunt.

I just can't seem to keep up with this at all! I just realized that it's been a month since I last posted. Funny, it just seems like yesterday. Life has been busy down here. Work has been keeping me occupied, as always. I was finding that even though my kids were not as physically demanding as the class I had in Tennessee, I was absolutely wiped out in the afternoons. I have since discovered that I have a B12 deficiency, and I hope that by taking supplements I may have a little energy left over at the end of the day.
I have almost finished the little piece I was working on with the variations threads. Just the little backstitching stuff to do next time I sit down, which will hopefully be tomorrow afternoon.
I also got the JCS orny issue, which was very exciting:) The next day in the mail my Cross Stitcher issue arrived, and I found a couple of pieces in there I would like to do. I will soon be hunting through my fabbie stash for a natural linen type for one of the pieces.
Tonight is Everquest night. Right now I'm in the middle of a really boring quest. Normally I'd bail and find something better to do, but this quest is part of a group of 5 quests that get me something really cool, so here I sit and be bored. Perhaps I'll finish off that variations piece.
