Hanging in there

Just a quick post to let you all know that I'm still alive and kicking. I've not been stitching that much in the last week as I've been fighting a head/chest cold. I do hate the head colds as they make it nearly impossible to sit with glasses on your face so you can see to stitch. I'm about 2/3 done with my second Halloween SAL piece for the Oakhaven Designs group. Hopefully I can get that finished this week. Better late than never as they say!

The new job is going along smoothly for the most part. The training is officially over now and after Wednesday they won't be checking behind us anymore. I'm looking forward to being able to order as much work as I can get done every week day. I've decided, after dealing with it three out of the four Saturdays of training, that I can't order work for the weekends. It's really hard to work with the kids at home. I know, eventually I will need to figure something out as they will have vacations and summer break but I think I'll let that go until I'm more comfortable doing the work. It should be interesting the first week or so getting a routine/schedule as I run out several times a day to pick up or drop off the kids. Once I get the routine down, I should start to actually enjoy the work. You can't ask for a better job, work from home and you set your own hours. Perfect for those people that have really wonky schedules like me. lol

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and that the week is a good one.

I hope you're feeling better soon. I think I'm coming down with a sinus infection. Fun stuff... not.

Did I miss the post about your new job?

The new job sounds great! Though I am like Meari-I think I missed that. What do you do? Are you getting ready for Christmas yet? I remember all those fabulous toys last year that the kids had.

Hey! I am glad that your new job is going well. Sounds like you have had a time of it lately. I can relate to the whole picture ordeal because we lost a ton of pictures when my husband's computer died at the first of the year. Tore me up thinking about it. Thanks for the links to the giveaways. Take care.
