You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life.

Good morning, I am feeling alittle blue this today. Could you say alittle paryer for my sweet dog Samson? We just learned yesterday that he is a diabetic. This past week I noticed he was drinking ALOT of water, excessive amounts and he seemed to have lost weight and on Monday we noticed a small "wound" on his back that came out of nowhere overnight, So I decided to make an appointment to get to the bottom of his issues.
Well his blood work came back yesterday and comfirmed what the vet suspected. His Glucose levels are high. We have an appointment Tuesday morning to go over his new diet and to learn how to give insulin. Ever one says it will be ok, and I know it will be, I just hate the thought of sticking this sweet old boy with needles. He just turned 12 in August.

On the stitching front, I have completed the baby blanket. I will take a photo of it this weekend before I mail it off to the expecting parents. I am working on my husbands blanket now, that should be finished up shorty and then it is onto the next baby blanket.

Wishing you all a Fantastic Friday!! Go out and make it a good one :)

Did ya'll think I was lost forever????

I have been MIA!!! Even my Dad called me last week to ask if I was still around.... Ooppss Sorry Dad ;) I have been around, but this summer was a busy one that's for sure. I can't remember a summer ever flying by so fast. So much to tell ya'll First I will say that we are finally feeling at home here in South Carolina.

We had a few rough months December - Febuary where I was starting to think if we had made the right move coming out here and all. But I am happy to say that all of that anxiety is behind, for the most part. We still have our doubts but I think that is natural. I now have a new job and I want to say a "real Job' even though it is not a normal 9-5er. I am still a waitress, but now I am at a very high end place. This place is so awesome. The staff that I work with are all career servers, something that I search for when looking to join a new restaurant. The Chef/Owner is a master in the kitchen and a real pleasure to work for. I am so excited to be a part of such an awesome restaurant.

So many of my friends are having babies, and SOON!!! Nov 17 and one in December so that means I had to start on baby gifts. I am currently working on a baby sampler for my girlfriends soon to be son. I sure hope to have it completed and framed by the new year.

Also I am working on a Baby blanket for a friends first baby. They are having a little girl and I though this yarn was so cute. And the pattern is a simple SC, so it should move along fairly quickly, I hope :)

I hopefully will be updating this blog more often.... Please check back often and leave comments I do love them and usually try to respond to them all. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
