Update and 3 finishes

Wow I swear I have such good intentions about updating this blog and just totally let it go. Oh well here I am now. So the tooth came out against it's wishes. The doc started by giving me 5!!!! freaking shots in the jaw. Then he started twisting and twisting and the tooth fought back. So needless to say my jaw hurt for several days. The worst part is I cried worse than a 2 year old. I think I was just fed up with everything plus it HURT. But Jeremiah told me it was okay cause we all deserve to cry sometimes. I think today I'm finally pain free!!

Last weekend on Saturday we had a geocaching lunch. It was the 6 year anniversary of a bunch of us becoming friends. I'm so thankful I've met each one of them and can't wait to spend more fun times with them. We grabbed 28 caches and just talked and had a blast. Plus we walked more than 2 miles so my legs hurt haha on top of everything lately. This one was an okay pain cause it means we had fun. This Saturday we are getting together again. This time we are going up north to visit them and probably do a lot more walking haha.

So during this time I've had 3 stitching finishes. I am going to the PALs Retreat in October. I wanted to join in the exchanges. They are having a Fall/Halloween Exchange, Stitched Exchange, and an Ornament Exchange. So I stitched up one thing for each exchange. They are finished and now I don't have to hurry to get them done during these next few busy months. Here are the pics...

The pictures show the back and front of the designs. I've also been getting the school room ready. We are starting Tuesday after Labor Day. Got all the books out and organized. This year looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. The history book is setup like newspapers. You get one for each week. They are setup like a real newspaper from the time you are studying each week. I can't wait to start cause my brain is going to explode with ideas haha. Jeremiah is even excited which is great! I just CAN'T believe it's 8th grade!!! Well I would say I'll update soon but who knows haha. Hope everyone is enjoying life. It's too short not to!
