Well, first off, TGIF! It has been a hell of week. Our dog Bailey got into something yesterday in the backyard and collapsed, so off to the vet in a major rush. They gave her oxygen, iv fluids, antibiotics (at least 2 really strong ones), drew blood and nothing showed there. She was non-responsive, just there (gums were white, not good) and she just didn't care what the vet was doing to her which is not our dog at all. She is scared to death of the vet normally. She came home with us last night with the IV still in for the "just in case" we had to go to the ER with her. She didn't sleep all night, which means, either did we. She is more peppy today, she looks 100% better but really only about 80% better. Thank goodness i was outside pulling weeds yesterday or we might not have Bailey with us.

Sunday is mine and Doug's 12th anniversary, so we will go out to dinner and maybe a movie tomorrow night. I really want to see "The Bucket List" so we will see. We are also going for a ride to Flagstaff first thing tomorrow morning (couple hour drive) to get breakfast at this little cafe in Clint's Wells. When Doug goes hunting the guys all go there at least once if not more for breakfast.Small little cafe, cheap and lots of really good food. And if there is snow, we will go play in the snow for a little bit until i whine it is too cold. LOL

As for stitching, I finished my Dog House Sampler by LHN on Monday. I think it turned out really cute with the buttons added instead of stitching the large dog bone.

I also stitched 2 very small pieces from JBW Advent Calendar for a RR. And i also stitched my fair and square's this week but can't show them as of yet.

Well, I am going to try to scrapbook a page or two of my stitching this weekend. Teejay (link at the left of my blog) is doing this and it is a fabulous idea for smaller projects you just don't want to frame. So, i am going to give it a try.

Other exciting news, Caitie our 16yr old DD got her drivers license on Tuesday. Of course that means i haven't seen too much of my car this week. oh well, she is a very good driver.

My Bourse is finally finished! yeah!

Well, here is my finished Bourse from the M Designs class i took in Myrtle Beach at the PALS convention in Oct 07. I have had the stitching done for awhile but finally finished it into a Bourse today with the help of my Aunt (I can't sew).

And here is a pic of my niece (almost 2yrs old). I watch her and my nephew during the week and this was her with her ketchup face, on the wall, etc. She was licking her plate clean, literally. LOL

The weather has been great here in AZ. It rained a couple days last week so the weeds are growing like crazy. AHHH!!! It has been really n ice out this weekend in the 60's i believe, enough to keep at least one door open. Didn't do too much this past week. Finished up my last appointment with the eye doctor for the MS research study i WAS doing. I dropped out completely, no more appts. yeah. the meds were causing the swelling in my eye (not noticable to me, just the dr with dilation), since i am no longer on meds, the swelling has gone down considerably.

I have been reading Teejay's blog (her link is at the left of my blog) and enjoying her scrapbook pages with her stitching and really considering doing this with some of my smaller projects that are just sitting here waiting to be "finished".

All 3 of the kids who tried out for their school teams made it. YEAH! Caitie is playing on the JV softball team for Centennial HS, Dustin is playing softball for his JHS (they won't let the boys play baseball in our district, stupid) and Josh made his JHS team for baseball. THis will be a very busy season running all around for all of the games.

Just some fun pics

Well, one of our friends had his "40th" birthday party a couple weeks back and we were all "wigging" out! LOL Here are a couple pics from that great and fun and a little tipsy night. LOL

then we have: me (blond), Steph and Wendy (i dream of jeannie) LOL and the other pic is of the majority of our softball team that was at the party. It was a blast of a night helping Peter celebrate his 40th birthday and can't wait to celebrate ours in July (DH and I have the same birthday same year).
