More on 6 Fat Men!

Another quick picture on 6 Fat Men! This is gonna be such a cute pattern! I can't wait to have it finished! We don't get enough snow down here, so I can look at this and think of snow! :)
It's late, so I'm gonna keep it short tonight!
Btw, my son Jacob got a job at Kroger, so now both of my boys are working for Kroger, just wish it was the same location. I'll be travelling taking him back and forth until he can save enough for his own car!
Hugs and lots of joy to you!

Sitting here resting my eyes! Well, sorta! :)

Well, I went to the eye doctor finally. I shouldn't have waited as long as I did. I have several things that are wrong! hahaha
1. Sjogren's Syndrome=Dry Eye, blocked tear ducts.
2.Retinal tear
3.Corneal scratches
4. Ocular inflammation
5. Cataracts (can you believe this! They are small, but I thought you were older when you got those! hahaha)
I will be on eye drops forever now for the Sjogren's Syndrome. I will take steroid eye drops for 8 weeks and then I will be re-evaluated to determine if I need some kind of tear duct plugs.

It's no wonder my eyes have been hurting me! My vanity in not wanting coke bottle glasses might have been my undoing. Oh well, I'll do fine, just might have thicker glasses. Boohoo! Be prepared Johnny, I'm ordering the thinnest lenses they make baby!

I'm hoping my eyes will feel better this evening so I can stitch. I have the font on size Largest to be able to see since my eyes are still dilated. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
I'm glad that my vision will hopefully start to get better in about 8 weeks, I will need a new prescription, but not until I finish the steroid drops.

Now on to exciting stitchy news! I have found the newest magazines that I must subscribe to.
Primitive Quilts and Projects and Mollie Makes(this one is a UK magazine)
Love them! I'm gonna take them with me this Tuesday night to my Hooty Girl stitch group!
I know Trish will love the Primitive Quilts one!
Well, my eyes are burning so I'll sign off for now!
Have a happy day y'all!

Update on 6 Fat Men!

Good goobbly moobbly! I am the slowest stitcher! It has been so hard to see, that I finally broke down and made an appointment with the eye doctor. I go Monday morning at 8:45! I will have to leave very early cause I gotta go to Sandy Springs Area! Yikes! Traffic is not gonna be great! :(

We are on a mini vacation from school for President's Day. We got Friday and we will get Monday off too. So I'm excited to sleep in! I'm ready for summer. lol
I'm waiting on my Mary Kay girl to get here! Jill keeps my face looking great as usual with their great products. I'm alittle concerned cause they are discontinuing the Classic line and they are trying out the Botanical line. We shall see. My skin is already so very temperamental as it is, so I'm hoping for good things and not skin problems. Crossing my fingers!

Gonna go for my walk as soon as Jill leaves. I'm about to go commando on my workout and diet. I've hit a horrible plateau and I'm frustrated. I've got 15 more pounds to lose. I am stuck at 172, and I wanna be 160. I'm gonna change up my diet and as much as I feel this is wrong, I need to eat more. Matt says I'm starving my body and it is holding on to dear life to the fat that I've got! lol. I do realize that I've come far since starting my decision to be a healthier person. When I look back at pictures of me at 245, it makes me sad that I let myself get that fat. But, not anymore!
Just gotta keep plugging along!
Y'all have a great day!!!
I'm gonna stitch and finish that block today!
