August 20, 2015

Good Morning!!  It's a good day so far here today.  I started work nice and early this morning, since M is out on vacation today and tomorrow.  A little extra OT on the paycheck is always nice.
Hubby had 62 hours of OT the last 2 weeks...  gives you an idea of how much I haven't been seeing him lately.  The other day he worked 6:00 am to 9:40 pm.  Eww!  He got home, slept for 5 hours and went back.  He is a wee bit tired right now and will be happy when he can sleep in.
DD has been registered for school, they don't start until the 25th.  She got her classes, which she is happy with.  We have to take her shopping for a few things, but we can take care of that this weekend.  She needs a new backpack, I think she wants a messenger bag, and a few clothes items.  Plus I need new socks!  HA!
I went and had an appointment with my new doctor.  She is very nice and I think I am going to like her.  I have been put on blood pressure medication, since my blood pressure was elevated.  It wasn't nearly as high when I had my appointment with her, but she wants to see what is going on.  I have to go back in 3 weeks for a blood test and then I see her again late September for a follow up.  My rash is basically gone, just need the spots where I broke open the skin from itching to heal and I should be good to go!  My doctor told me to start exercising, so I have starting using the elliptical we bought.  I forgot how much I love/hate that machine!  I have done each night this week.  The first 2 nights I did 10 minutes with a minute cool down.  Last night was 11 minutes with a minute cool down.  2 miles done last night.  Not bad in my opinion.  
On to stitchy news!  
Ruh is looking good.  Page 21 is coming along slowly.  I am almost done with the first color on the page.  Hopefully today or tomorrow I can finish it up and start the second color.
Gir is moving along nicely as well.  I haven't worked on it (her?) since Sunday since Monday and Tuesday were crazy and yesterday I was happy with NOT having a million things to do so just vegged after my workout and making dinner.  Here is Gir after Sundays stitching.
Gir update as of 8/16/15.
Isn't Gir coming along wonderfully?  I am a bit shocked my hubby hasn't told me he wants it, as his favorite color is orange!  LOL
I really do enjoy working on this one.  It is coming along rather quickly, compared to Ruh, and I like the feeling of quickness on it. 
And just because, here is a picture of Oreo (the black & while kitty) and Angel slumbering in their beds.
Angel & Oreo snoozing.
That's it for today.  Happy Stitching everyone!
