Interesting facts about me

I live in Belleville, Il. I have been married for almost 5 years and we have an adorable little boy, Michael.
I work full time for a local corporation in the accounting department. I would rather be at home but it is just not possible right now.
I have been stitching for about 13 years or so. Grandma taught me stamped cross stitch and I pretty much taught myself the counted cross stitch. Mighty good at it if I say so myself...just don't look at the backs!
I LOVE hand dyed fabric and threads...especially silks.

    I don't know if I can imagine what you go through. :) I justt have two dogs that seem like toddlers and I can barely keep my house clean. Plus... with the joys of home ownership I have had a water pipe burst under that house that is going to cost 2K to fix because it is the main line from the meter to my house. Sigh. At least all the plumbing will be updated now. :)

    2 words for ya...IT SUCKS!

    We are going to have to spend alot more $$ to get a house in a good neighborhood and with want we really need. We will be maxed out that is for sure. Atleast with what we are making on our house it will pay off most if not all of our cc debt which will free up alot as we have been paying quite a bit extra each month.
    sucks but gotta do what is best for us and cc's are not the way.

    imageHappy Birthday to Michael! I have never sold a house but I did buy my first one. Talk about not knowing what owning is like. I love it though. I can do what I want and not have to worry about neighbors in an apartment. I am thinking about in another two years or so moving to a bigger house in a better neighborhood. Good luck on selling your home!

    I tell ya, it is exciting, stressful and fun all wrapped together. It is really hard keeping a house clean when you have a 1 year old though!

    Hey Stef- How is it going? I have started stitching a new design called Dragons Tear from Stab n' Stash this weekend. Going pretty good so far but I haven't gotten into a lot of color changes yet. :)

    I wish I was getting some stitching done. Maybe at lunch today. Our house is going on the market Friday and we are trying to get all that stuff done, plus we have Michael's first birthday party on Saturday.
    It has been a little hectic! Not to mention I have been sick on top of it all.

    Whining over. Can't wait to see your progress!!

    I wore a hoodie today (casual day) and I am sweating. Guess our heavy duty space heater kicked in and started working. UGH.
    Only an hour to go and then I am outta here for 3 days. Busy weekend but it is better than busy at work :)

    I am freezing, we don't have heat in our part of the office. It didn't work last year but it wasn't that cold. Well this year we thought they fixed it and well that was soooo not the case.
    My toes will have frost bite here soon.

    My boss is really ticked. She has heat in her part of our offices but our section doesn't. Hopefully they will get it fixed soon or I will be wearing layers to work tomorrow
