It's Stress Free Thursday!!!!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!

We've made it... one more day till the weekend. And although today really isn't stressful, I'm not feeling as "woo-hoo" as that probably looked like it sounded. (huh? not sure that made sense to anyone but me!)

I'm out and about today, but definitely still not feeling well and not sure I should be coming into contact with people either. I was thinking originally that this was allergy related, but I'm pretty sure now that it's more of a bug since I've been hearing from people around me with the same crud.

But you don't want to hear about my sniffles and coughs! You want to hear about beads!!!!!

So... the good thing that has come out of my being sick is that I have had to sit still (because I didn't feel like much else) and that has let me BEAD... the kind of sit there and be still beading that needed to be done. I've been slower for sure, for a couple of reasons... 1. because I'm in design-stage and that takes a little longer. 2. because I just don't feel great and 3. because my eyesight has officially hit the FORTY mark and turned south on me. I need readers now and that drives me crazy!!!

BUT the piece is turning out SO SO SO cute and I can't wait to get it kitted and ready to roll. I've had the lampwork made for a while, but hadn't figured out the color placement exactly. I didn't want the piece to be all red and green AND I didn't want it to look just like all the other Head Over Heels girls, so I've been stitching and un-stitching quite a lot, but yesterday I hit the YES! That's it! moment and I should have her structure finished by tomorrow. Embellishment always takes me almost as long as the piece itself, so I'm going to have to give myself a couple of extra days past my self-imposed deadline of tomorrow.

I'll try to get pictures posted here early next week because she is SO SO SO cute! She's a holiday jester... sort of elf-like, but no pointy ears... a jester hat instead. She has pointy-toed elf shoes, candy-cane legs and the cutest little jumper...makes her look very nordic and not just like all the other HOH girls...which is the point of these limited edition pieces. She also is wearing mittens!!! Cute, huh? I can't wait to show you!!!!

Can you tell I'm excited about it???? I really am!!!

The UNexcitng part of my life this week is car-related. I have to go buy a car this weekend (or early next week) It's a must... my old car went ka-put... BIGTIME ka-put. I like the car I've picked out, but have to get through the buying part... but then that will be done and I will be a happy HEALTHY girl in a happy healthy car! (it really is a happy car. I wish it was a happier color, but that wasn't meant to be... but it's a fun car just the same)

tiny blah blah blah...

Chick Fil A Tea

No music...I forgot to bring my ipod to the office, but I will probably have the Gilmore Girls on in the background later when I get back home. Does that count?

I haven't mentioned this earlier and it doesn't really matter to anyone but me, BUT I haven't really watched TV in almost THREE months! Isn't that crazy? Other than a few exceptions... hanging out with my kids while they were watching something, being at my mom's when she was watching something... that's it. Watching Flight of the Conchords online and then watching Gilmore Girls on DVD are the first PURPOSEFUL watching of anything I've done all summer (other than going to a movie). There are shows I'll want to watch when re-run time is over, but I haven't really missed much this summer.
