Ginny, I'm a youngster compared to her and I'm just about over the crazies. (just about)  :  )  LOL  All kidding aside, if he's content with his life as is let it be.  We mom's and grams are always trying to fix something that aint broke.  So much love in our hearts.

CC, nice to know someone cares more about time with their family, then the almighty dollar. Not many men would turn down a deal like that.  You are truely blessed with your DH

Ginny, does your son not realize that EVERY woman is only one hormone pill away from "crazy"?  ; ! }

Yes - we have been having fun - even though we are miles apart we can sew together - how much fun is that - I am making some hand made gifts in case I have to put together some Secret Santa packages to go out.  I still haven't heard from about 20 people as to whether - 1 - they sent out a gift - or 2 - they received a gift - so getting ready just in case and if none have to be sent out - that will be just outstanding - I will just put these into a bag for next year... love it...

Barbara is shopping online - window shopping...teehee... all the sales - that extra money in her checkbook is burning a hole in her pocket...

Love it!  I got all my mail box surprise stuff ready to go - now to get the envelopes and put them in and get to the post office tomorrow - UPS store for 2 packages - one to NC - one to GA - and then 6 all over the place at the PO... busy day tomorrow... but then I will be all done for this year and we aren't even to the half way point in the month... amazing for me.

Marie:

This is what I've been working on the last few days.  My soon to be 31 YO DGS always loved Charlie Brown so I'm making this for him and his unborn son to cuddle up with when his son is born late winter.

These are the leftover triangles that I could make a crib sized quilt out of.

Marie, that is an awesome Idea - one for Daddy and one for baby... I have had some material for Scooge for my son forever - am thinking - yep - Marie gave me a good idea - one for Dad and one for new GS... yep thank you .... and your quilts are awesome...

Ginny:

Well, I'd like to send himover, but we are in Michigan and I have never heard him state that he would like to move elsewhere.   Now if we could move Texas closer to Michigan- that might work. LOL

Don't let that coworker get to you.  There is always another day for that.  I guess just keep thinking-Paybacks are-hmm- shall we say not nice?    Hee hee hee     Ginny

 

 

Well, I've never been to Michigan, and I'm an adventurer....lol   I can totally understand his hesitation to get into another relationship, only to find out she is half insane.  Since I became a practicing Christian (not just praying the prayer and signing a piece of paper, but actually living my life to the best of my ability for Christ), I have concerns that I will meet someone, fall in love with them, marry them, and find out they were only putting on a front.  I know God will deliver the right man at the right time.  He's just building lots and lots of patience in me in the mean time.

The coworker and I met eyes three times today.  I generally don't see her, so of course today, after her little blow-up yesterday, I would see her non-stop.  I smiled at her kindly and walked on.  

Today was still a difficult day.  Lost of transition at work - all good, but still taxing as I have to train someone on yet another part of my job and then I have to still answer questions for the boss...oh and stay caught up on my other tasks.  It's going to be a very busy 11 days.  That is when I will be on Christmas vacation - working from home minimally, but enjoying my time with my son.  I may take a sewing hiatus just so I don't burn out.  I don't feel close to burn out, but I'm tired and a break would be rather welcome.  If I do sew something, it'll be for myself for a change.

I will have to say, after a rather difficult day, I was secretly hoping to come home to my SS box.  Nothing yet, but I know it will be amazing when it does come.  The littlest things make me smile, so if my SS wrapped things individually, I will take my time (hopefully) and unwrap each carefully and appreciate each thing.  If not, then I will still take the time to appreciate each thing.

Well, off to quilting more on the jersey quilt.  The quilt that will never end....

Love and hugs to you all

Brandy

Last Friday, I went on a shop hop, each shop was giving away a colored Nook,  Guess what I won? you got it I won one of the nooks, I am just glad it was at the shop closest to me, just about 45 min drive.  I will probably end up giving it to my GS, but it was fun to win

h no, Marie, he is not at all satisfied with his life as it is, he would really like to have a wife and family.  I guess I'll just have to pray harder for it to happen.    Ginny
