I’m a winner!

Wow!  I finally won a giveaway from one of my favorite quilters – Malka Dubrawsky.  She has a great blog (http://stitchindye.blogspot.com/)  Go and visit her blog!  You won’t be dissappointed!  I had to call my good friend Cindy to tell her the great news too!  Can’t wait to get my goodies in the mail!  I won a stash of the new Kona solids and a book from Robert Kaufman called “We Love Color.”  Now what to make with the fabric…hmmm…I’m sure I will get a lot of ideas from the book .  This is the best day ever!  Thanks Malka!

To Blog or Not to Blog

I haven’t blogged in a long, long time. Probably because I’m so busy with work, my family, a two-year old, and trying to find time to sew. I also peruse many, many quilt blogs. So I’m thinking of starting to blog about my quilts and quilt projects.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I wish I could say that the new year will bring more posting to this blog.  But I don’t want to set myself up for failure either.  I hardly check my Facebook nowadays.  Just so busy with Marissa going to college and Sean about to turn 2 years old.  I have taken on the task of producing the newsletter for my quilt guild and that takes up a lot of my time.  Plus I have to make time for my wonderful husband.  So with that being said, I hope you all understand.

Facebook takes away from posting

So I finally joined Facebook.  Now I have no time for blogging.  So I guess I will have to make a choice between blogging and Facebook.  It will be hard for me to do both but I will try and see what happens.  Do any of you do both and do you find it a challenge?  Let me know.

I passed my PHR exam!

Well – I did it. I passed my PHR exam. I have been in a class since February and study like crazy. I had my exam on Tuesday and I passed. What a relief! Now I get to add PHR to the end of my name!

Mom Update

Mom is doing well. She had two visits last week; one with the physician’s assistant and one with the cardiologist. Both said she is doing well. Although she does have a urinary tract infection so she is on antibiotics to get that cleared up. The doctor wants to perform angioplasty and place two stents in the blockages that are in her Iliac arteries sometime the first week of June. I will give another update then. Thanks for all the prayers and keep them coming.

Mom is doing well

My mom had a blockage in her carotid artery (neck) that had to be removed and stent placed in it on Thursday, May 13. When they went in to what they thought was an 85% blocked artery they found that it was 99% blocked with a blood clot sitting right behind it. They removed the blockage and placed a stent in the artery. She was in essence a ticking time bomb and we are thankful that it was caught in time. While they were performing the procedure they found that she has two more blockages in her Iliac artery (see picture). She will have to have those blockages taken care of very soon. We are not sure when the doctor will take care of those but I bet it will be within a week or two. She will hopefully come home from the hospital on Saturday.

Blog is sortof on hold

Sorry for not posting but I have been busy with class. I actually just finished a 12 week course in preparing for my PHR exam. So know I’m studying like crazy because my PHR exam is on May 18. PHR stands for Professional Human Resources and I’m taking an exam to be certified. The exam is 4 hours long with 250 multiple choice questions. So pardon my inactivity to the blog. I will try to post more often but don’t count on until after May 18. Thanks!

This is a good blog – www.dooce.com

Love, love, love this blog. She is the author of It Sucked and Then I Cried. I highly recommend this book especially if you are a mom. Anyways, she has this blog and this was recently posted on it:

What are your first thoughts when you wake up in the morning?

If ever there was a question with so many possible answers from one person depending on what stage of life she’s in.

As a kid: “How many days until Christmas?”

As a teenager: “Please let today be a good hair day, please let today be a good hair day, please let today be a good hair day…”

In college: “I cannot wait to have sex.”

Early twenties: “Should not have had that last shot of tequila.”

Late twenties: “BABIES! BABIES! BABIES!”

Early thirties: “What I would give to wake up one morning and have my biggest worry be whether or not my hair is going to look good.”
