Ain't no rest for the wicked, baby...

What have I been up to? Let's see-more babysitting, driving back and forth to swim practice and lots and lots and lots of sewing. I really hope the recipients of what I am making like their presents.

Partially assembled tote bags. I am making 17 of them for the Divine Miss H to give her friends.

For those of you who have been following my unemployment saga, I finally had my appeals hearing (only 4 short months after requesting one). My former employer did not show up. This was very good for me. I still have to wait for my official written notification but am 99.9% sure things will be in my favor. It is so nice to have that over with. It's freakin' ridiculous that I originally applied for unemployment almost 8 months ago and things have taken so long. I am thankful I am not the primary income earner in my household-I would be screwed!!!

I do have a new friend on the way. I believe he has been trekking through a blizzard to get here but he sent along a few pictures.

Face down in a snow drift-

A (little too) close up-

His name is Tucker and that is about all he has told me so far. A sort of mysterious fellow if you ask me. I do know he would prefer to live in a warmer climate and is a vegeterian as long as you don't consider bologna to be meat (no fakey fake stuff please). He should be here in the next day or two. I think you'll like him.

A bunch more to talk about but my thoughts are very unorganized right now. When they get unjumbled I will get back to you :)
unoriginal thought for today: The young regret what they did,the old regret what they didn't.

What do you think?
I can't change the "dids" but I am trying like hell to not have "didn'ts". One of the things my sister told me in the days before she died is that she had no regrets. What a wonderful way to have lived your life.


  1. Girlfriend, your posts make me smile BIG. I love your stuffie. His face down in a snow drift picture made me squeal!

    Woot Woot on everything!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  2. I wish I had more do's but I am happy. And I do love a mystery man.
