Where do I start? I won't start from the beginning but suffice it to say there have been a lot of things going on in my life. I think I am going through the big M. My son is almost 17 and has gotten to the point where he doesn't talk to me unless he has to. I'm just a wee bit aggravated that the Democratic nominee hasn't been chosen yet and the Republican one has. I hit a block in my creativity which I think(finger's crossed) has worked itself out. I did finish the Leap, but I mounted it on poster board and can't put the frame back on. Perhaps tomorrow. I have to go back to the Y and find my self AGAIN. And back on the diet too, not so much for the weight(although that is a problem) but for my health. And I've been kind of stuck in a rut for a while now. When I look at the calendar I realize just how much of a while. I've completely checked out except for a few outings with my friends and a weekly coffee outing with my best friend Emily. But even the long lost relatives are calling me to find out what happened to me. Basically I think I am just in the midst of one of those mid life crisises(I thought they were just a myth). If I were a man I would just buy a sports car but it isn't so easy for us ladies. Plus we have more to deal with like the Big M. So I guess that's enough window into my soul and we can move on.

Went out to dinner with my hubby. It was very nice. We went to a Mexican restaurant and drank margaritas and had FUN. Also went back to see his family as he had a business conference down that way. That was fun too and I embroidered more then I have in months(I left the laptop at home). So things seem to be on the uptake but I won't have you coming back and checking till I get my blogging mojo back(and the rest of my mojo). Hope your time without me has been much better then my time without you. Keep stitchin and hopefully I'll see you soon.

Let's Go Mets!

I probably mentioned a while back that I am a huge baseball fan and a huge Mets fan. I grew up in New Jersey with Met's fan(dad) and a Yankee fan(mom) and straddled the fences and supported both. I'm probably dating myself but my favorite players were Thurman Munson(god rest his lovely athletic soul) and Rusty Staub(I had a thing for red haired men). So then I married my Met fan husband and the Yankees just got a wee bit too successful so now I'm a Met's fan.

Why am I talking Mets? Because I'm watching John Maine give up two hits in the first inning. I'm not worried though he's great. I'm very excited that baseball is BACK, today is the first day in my little town that feels like SPRING and well Obama has basically won the Democratic nomination(if Hillary doesn't steal it, sorry Hill fans).

I worked a little bit on the leap, just putting on finishing touches which are background I'm not sure I should have bothered with, boring as watching paint dry. Otherwise all is well in my little part of the world. Been getting together with friends, took a jewelry class(so that I can make jewelry I'll never wear) and even got a few libations in one night. Hope your lives are well. Keep stitching.
