Stitch-In Update and Pics!

I just love Tuesday nights! It's a chance for me to be around new friends and do something that I so love! To cross stitch! Our little group of friends is perfect, everyone is unique in their own way. I have a feeling that these ladies will help me when I am feeling down or when I'm struggling with letting go of a certain young man who's looking forward to college. Sniff, sniff....

I hope everyone has went to Terri's blog to sign up for the giveaway. Good luck y'all!

I get to be in my element Saturday, it's my day to be at the shop! Yeehaw! Y'all would never know I'm from Loganville, GA, would y'all? I'll never forget when my music coach told me I had to drop the drawl if I ever wanted to sing professionally. Well, folks, it's hard to take the country out of the girl.

I am now on another round of antibiotics. (This will make 5 weeks of taking some kind of antibiotic.) Sigh.......... Another 10 days, then we will recheck my lungs. OK people, I've got a bone to pick! (Now, if you are a friend of mine, I'm sorry, just listen to the rant!)
1. If you are sick, please go to the doctor. Get meds to get better.
2. Don't just think it will get better.
3. Because, people like moi! Me, DaisyGirl, who has PsA/RA, she doesn't have an immune system that works, so she catches everything in the world!
4. Please!! Help me get better, don't sneeze or cough on me! Thank you!
OK, rant over. The doctor feels that I can't get better because I'm getting re-infected by people who are sick at my school. You know who you are! Plus every time I hug a child or hug or shake your hand at school, I pick up every germ out there. They are doing a culture on me to see if there is an underlining problem. I love these kids at my school, I would hate to have to leave my school due to my health. I'm glad that I'm well liked and lovable, but I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired! hahaha
Well, I have to fill out the FASA form tonight for Jacob! (College is so expensive!)
Hugs to all my readers and friends!
I love ya!
ps:You can now click on the the Stitch Store logo and go right to the shop! :)

Busy Weekend and a death in the family.....

Had a very busy weekend plus John's Aunt Ruth passed away on Sunday. Tonight was the funeral home visitation and the funeral is tomorrow. They did such a wonderful job on Aunt Ruth, she looked so pretty and honestly, she just looked liked she was sleeping. (Which btw, is how she passed, peacefully sleeping)
I meant to blog the other day about posting my exchanges in the mail, so I'm hoping my partners get their goodies soon. I didn't get to go to stitch-in tonight, which makes me little sad, I look forward to Tuesday nights, now I'll have to wait till next week! :(
Has anyone seen the cute little chick design in the Just Crossstitch magazine from Brooke Nolan? I love that little chick, I'm gonna do my best to just stitch her and make a pin for Easter! She is so springy! I love her!
Well friends, bed is calling, tomorrow will be very busy!

Prepare for Smoked BBQ Ribs Weekend!

My family is coming over on Saturday for a cookout! Even if it rains! Having the smoker now means we can enjoy the grill whenever we want! I love the way John cooks our food! He makes the best smoked ribs in the world, even better than the BBQ place here in Dacula. Hmmm, hmmm, good! Lip smacking, tasty, spicy just right! I'm making homemade potato salad, baked beans and I'm gonna practice on a new dessert too.
I will post pictures this weekend. You will get to meet my bosom friend Kelly, she's my brother girlfriend. I'm hoping for a future SIL! Get busy Patrick! hahahaha
We are off from school this Friday. It's a teacher workday, so no school tomorrow! I'm looking forward to a three day weekend!
Don't forget to set your clocks ahead this weekend! I know we lose an hour, but having it daylight longer is a sure sign of spring!
See ya friends!

Tuesday Night Stitch-In!

I love getting to wear more pink! Thanks Terrie!

Happy Stitch night again! It felt great to be back after being sick for so long! Our little group continues to grow! It's great to meet other stitchers out in the world! I am starting to feel human again and I'm so glad! We have had a great day today, sunny and warm and just beautiful! Spring is just around the corner. We have an upcoming 3 day weekend and I plan to try to get my patterns in some sort of order. I do not have to work this weekend at the shop, so I'm hoping the weather will be great so we can grill out.

We are on the downhill spiral of getting closer to graduation for my youngest Jacob! It is coming closer and I'm getting sad that it's almost over for him. He has also applied to SCAD in Savannah, I'd love for him to be able to go there. Jacob is such an artist and I know he'd like to be in the illustrator or animator field, crossing our fingers there. It's such a shame that everyone of these schools require fees just to apply. Some are $25, some or $50 or even higher, it doesn't seem like alot, but when you apply to 5 to 10 colleges like they instruct you too, it can get very expensive, and that's just for application fees! Yikes! Just this month alone, I've spent close to $250 dollars just in fees, and its only March 9th! I need to win the lotto! hahaha
Well friends, it's late once again and I'm getting sleepy!
Talk soon!
PS:the stitchy piece is Ulla's Halloween round robin, the top right is my block! Our Halloween RR is finally completed! Every one's RR turned out awesome!

Can I get better?

I have Bacteria Pneumonia, this is totally crazy. So, I have another round of a different antibiotic to try plus refills on cough and Mucinex. The doctor feels that I have just gotten so worn down and that I need rest, but try telling the school that. I'm not sure if it is worth it friends. I love the kids, but I want not to be sick all the time too.

John is getting better from the flu, he is tired but feeling better. So far the boys have shown immunity so far. I've got my fingers crossed for them. The headache is horrible, I've had a headache now daily for 7 days.

I am thrilled with Honeysuckle Manor! Blackbird Designs has done it again, I cannot wait to show Terrie the pinball that I have made. It was very quick to stitch and fun to do.

I am tired, yet not sleepy, I think I will go lay down and watch a movie.

Night friends!

I'm back!

Great news about Jacob! He got accepted to Berry College!

Sorry friends that I've been absent, but the H1N1 flu caught up with the Bennett clan at our house. John and I both have been sick as dogs with the crap. I finally am back to work and at least functioning at 70%. hahaha Man, let me tell you, when it hits you, there is no doubt what is wrong. This past Saturday, I left the cross stitch shop about an hour and a half early due to kidney stone moving. I got home and John says, I think I'm running a fever, I check, yes, he was, so I dose him up with Advil and go take a bath. Well, within 3 hours, I was running a fever and felt so bad, I was crying. The headache was so bad, I felt like someone had hit me in the back of my head and my legs with a bat, yuck! At least the stone let up! ha!

So on Sunday, our oldest son Jason loaded us up in the car and drove us to Urgent Care and got loaded up with Tamiflu, Z-Packs, MucinexD, plus cough syrup. Sunday and Monday were blurs, I thought I was dying. John did not have it as bad as I had, he only had fever and aches, I also had a sinus and ear infection to go along with the flu. So he pretty much took care of me and himself on those days. Tuesday my fever broke, and Wednesday I went back to work since we are short handed in the cafe. What I wouldn't have given to be able to take the whole week off. I've got plenty of sick leave, but my boss asked for me to come in as soon as I could. The county just needs to hire us one more worker for our kitchen.

I'm putting my exchanges together in their packages tonight. I'm a few days late with mailing since I got the flu. Hoping my partners forgive my lateness.

Hope to have pictures soon!
