Bad Day

Well first let's start this on a positive note. I had a finish a few days ago. This is a Mill Hill ornament. My mom wanted to take it to a party for her family on Dec 10th. I was worried I wouldn't get it finished in time. I started it right away and finished it a day later haha. She laughed at me for being stressed. Yeah well at least now I don't have to worry. Then I started the Christmas Chairs on the beach kit I got with mom and I hate each stitch. I don't know why. It's a Dimension's kit and it has half stitches and 2 threads here 4 threads here...maybe that's why. Or...I knew I was itching to start my new kitted up HAED. So I giggled and asked the family if I could start it even though I said I would wait. Remember when I said I would rotate between one and the other each month. Yeah that lasted what a few weeks. Not even. Anyway the Dragon Girl was screaming from the computer desk to stitch on her. Yesterday I couldn't control her any longer and she jumped over onto my Q-Snaps and started herself....Okay well not really haha. Most the time you start in this dark dark corner.....this design has BEAUTIFUL shades of PURPLE in the corner!! I'm in LOVE! Plus it's not a lot of confetti stitching so I got 600! stitches in last night alone!!! Helped a lot there was a WWE PPV so that meant a lot of stitching time haha.

Now onto the bad part.....I woke up this morning and realized it was Turkey Week. Thanksgiving always goes wrong. I don't know why. 3 years ago my grandfather was in the hospital and never came out. We host my mom's family here and that means cleaning and making the house presentable. I hate cleaning. So we always have a lot to do in a little amount of time. Yesterday I noticed one of my guinea pigs (of course my favorite Shh though don't tell the other one) was breathing heavily. This morning I noticed he was really doing worse. So I called a vet and got an appointment. Found out he has pneumonia and more than likely won't make it. Grr. Jeremiah is having a hard time cause we really love this little guy. They did give him an injection and if he lives tomorrow they will give him another one. So hopefully we got it in time and he'll bonce back. Just one of those things that leads to me hating this holiday. I just want to get to Christmas please. I just need to breath deeply and relax....I'm trying.


  1. Hang in there, sweetie. Just try to stay focused on all of the good you have to be thankful for.


  2. I agree with have a LOT to be thankful for, and while it may feel the world is crashing down on you at times, there are tons of us here, ready, to pick you right back up and dust you off. You'll get through this, and if you need to call me to chat, cry, yell, vent, take your mind off things, you call me ANYTIME!

  3. Hang in there, Katie! I'm hoping things are going well with your little guinea pig :(
    I know what you mean about this holiday....we've had 2 deaths in our family over the past 3 years, so this is always the tough one....but it's always the one that brings family together for the right reasons too.

    Wishing you the best...and I can't wait to see your HAED progress...HAED's are so dear to me :)
