I am still here.....

Hello Again. I am still here, working all kinds of odd hours and not sewing or coming on the computer much....... I do miss visiting people's blogs....... And I have been busy.

Daughter had her wisdom teeth pulled out last Thursday. She is finally back to school today, feeling like she can move her mouth. I have to do this again with my other daughter....... not fun. My youngest has 5 teeth to be removed instead of the usual 4, so that might be a little harder to do. Dr. is going to give her a special X-ray that will help him figure out where the 5th tooth is, so that will cut down on the searching time..... yuck!!! I will probably book her appointment in a couple months, in the new year. Can you believe it's that close already??!! ahhhhh!!!

And, something that just thrilled my heart - my goldfish, 5 of them, survived the freezing we had a couple weeks ago!!! Rain barrels were frozen, and I thought it was for 2 weeks, still think it was, but hubby says only a week.... uh, uh, it was for longer than that - anyways, the air warmed up, they started to melt and I wanted them empy of the water and ice before they could freeze again and damage the taps. Hubby would not be very happy to have to fix them for me, so I just wanted them empty and ready to go for next year. I was looking in the bottom of the barrel and saw my gold fish.... told my daughter I found one, thinking it was dead, I was not happy about it. She asked if it was dead, so I told her yes, but it sure looked pretty, then as I was looking at it, I saw the upper fin move oh so slightly. I was shocked!!! there is no current in a rain barrel, it should not have moved!!! I yelled, it's alive!!!! and we got him out!!! In the next couple days, we got 5 of them, so they are swimming happily in my aquarium, and I am loving it!!! So, that is my happy thought for today. And saying 'hi' to you.

Okay, I have to go get dressed and ready for my 3 - 9:30 shift........ At least it's not 10:30 or later, which I hate!! Well, don't really like anyway....... it's the not getting home till after 11 that I really don't like....... But I am not complaining. Hubby just got back from working a 24 hr shift at his job........ that is not fun at all!!

Take care!!! Have a Happy Halloween!!!!

I am just taking a second to let everyone know I am alive!! Honest!! But, I have spent the last week with a cough, a sore throat, which by Sunday took my voice!! Monday, Canada's Thanksgiving - had me on the couch, while hubby and daughter made dinner!!! First time in YEARS, that I have not made the Thanksgiving Dinner..... it was nice!!

So, I have phoned work 3 time to let them know I wouldn't be there. I have never phoned in sick before to any job......... And since I am still so new, I hope they won't hold it against me.........

But, I am back tomorrow - anitbiotics really do wounders. I am not 100%, but I do feel more alive and the best thing, I can keep my eyes open for more than a couple minutes!!! And I have not fallen asleep unexpectedly for a couple days now, so I am on the mend.

I do miss visiting blogs - so I am going to have to work this into my life - I hope I have found you well and HEALTHY!!!! Please stay that way. I have done alot of watching TV that talks about how to keep your immune system strong, and I will be doing the garlic, beta-carotine, sardines (what??!!? Yup, I guess sardines are good to keep your immunity up. could it be the fishy smell that keeps the germs away?? lol!!) and anything else that will keep me up and running!! I got real cranky while I was not feeling well, so I think everyone wants me to stay healthy!! :-)

Bye for now!!

I'm Okay!!!

I just thought I should come on and say 'hi', considering it's been a couple weeks since I have been on here.
I have a job - I am working at Costco for 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week right now, and the hours are always different. So, I am not a normal schedual - and am gone from home over 11- hrs a day, so it's taking up alot of my time.
And this is before the snow comes!! Which should be here by Wednesday, not much, but it's a start (it had better not be much!!!!) And that will make my 40 min drive a bit longer.
Do I like it??? Yes. So far, so good. Do I like bringing in buggies?? Uh.... no, not really, but I do like the being outside.... so I don't hate it. I do not like it in the wind though, especially when it's chilly - and I hear that when the snow is here, it's not fun then either, but hey, it's got to be done, so, I go do it. (if you shop at stores that use buggies, would you mind bringing in one to use......?? lol!!) I am glad to be working again.

I had my youngest daughter tell me tonight, me and her dad that she doesn't like us. Hasn't for quite awhile, and .............. well, I know she is not kidding. this has really hurt. It was not a shock, but everytime my kids tell me something like this, how awful I am as a mom, how much I have done wrong, I take it to heart and it hurts. I know it's the age - she's 15. BUT, and it's a huge BUT, I don't know how to talk to her - no matter what I say, she tells me how wrong I am, looks at me with raised eyebrows and makes me feel so not needed or wanted.

So, I am enjoying my job. the time away. And , well, this is my life right now. I am back to working, have not been in my crafts room, doing anything creative, I bought the new Jan Arden CD, love Jan Arden!! It's a soft, quiet CD, and I have only listened to it once, on the way home last night!! But I like it. And I am trying to climb into the "Lovely Bones" book. It's a book I have had on my 'to read' list for years - now that it's a movie, I have to read it!!!! I told my girlfreind years ago, when she asked me what was good while I was working at the library, I told her if I had the time to read, this (the lovely bones book) was what I would read if I had the time. Well, she took it, read it, and told me I would like it....... that was a very long time ago!! So, now I am trying to read it, but I have not gotten very far!! I should take it to work and read it over my breaks!!

You know what, I am going to go. Thanks for emailing me to see how I was. ((hugs)) It was very nice to recieve. I will try to be more consistant with keeping up with the blogs and writing about what is going on - and pictures!!! I recieved the bracelt and earring set from the 'Incredible Woman' blog I found. And I was going to have a pic to show you, but my camera is not where I thought it was, so I will make sure to get a pic on next time.
Stay warm where you are - and keep smiling!!! Sew a stich or two for me, I have not been sewing at all this past week. Have the best week ever. I am sure going to try my best!!
Bye for now!!!
