ahh, to blog again...

So yesterday, I headed my behind to Michigan City to visit Hobby Lobby. I wanted to get a few more cross stitching items, and our local Michaels SUCKS for supplies. Hobby Lobby was frustrating, because they didn't have a lot of the things I needed. But I got a few super cute kits, and a pattern I kitted myself. It's going to be my biggest piece to date (it really isn't that big), but it's a Fall pattern, so I have half a year to finish it. That should be enough time, right? I also got a few bird ones that I want to make for the Nature Center. I don't know if Brad will even hang them, but perhaps if I have a purpose for them, I will be a little more likely to stick with

Kids and I went to dinner at Noodles & Co last night. I am totally in love with their Steak Stroganoff. We went to Walmart afterwords to get Valentines cards. We had a good time just hanging out. Unfortunately, I have to work tonight. I really am starting to hate my shifts at work, because I never get to see the kids. And I feel really bad now that Brad is in Cuba, because there is nobody here at night with them. I was hoping to escape this weekend with them, but nobody at work is willing to cover my shifts or trade shifts with me. I'm getting really frustrated with it all.

Nothing on the agenda today, other than work. I'm fighting a migraine, so not even in the mood to get out of bed. Hopefully it goes away soon, and I can venture out to the grocery store so the kids don't starve while I am away.

I've made friends with a girl at work who recently moved here from South Bend. I know what it's like to be the "new one" in town, and we just seem to have hit it off. We were talking over dinner the other night about her love for cows, and my love for squeeky cheese. She has never had it...OH EM GEE! So, tomorrow I am picking her up from work and we are heading over to Fair Oaks Farms. I may take Caiden along too, as he has never been. I'm really looking forward to the trip!

Will update after the curd haul!

  1. It's so cool you've picked up stitching again. I think it's fun to have something to do with my hands.

    Hope your weekend time gets approved. I know you are looking forward to it.

    Have fun but not too much with some new person I don't want to be replaced haha. Give Monster a squeeze for me.
