Back to school

Yesterday was back to school for the kids. My nieces came up so I could see them in there new out fits. Well they really came up so the could sit on my porch and watch for the bus. LOL They looked really nice in there new clothes, and new shoes. I didn't care for there pick of boo bags this year but I'm just the Aunt. The tallest one is Karissa, she isn't happy about going back to school, she got used to the staying up all night and sleeping all day. The middle child is Rachael is is very excited to be going back, she can't wait to see her old friends and meet her new teacher. The girl in pink is Ashley, she is the child with ADHD, she is just excited..period. LOL She is so full of energy all the time, bouncing around like a ball.

I have worked soooo many extra hours this weekend. I might as well just found a bed at the nursing home and slept until my next shift. LOL With Keith not working I gotta pick up at least 2 extra shifts a week. I'm not sure how long I can do it but I know it won't be long. My back and legs are killing me! I got used to working only 4 days a week, and I love having my 3 days off in a row.

I do have some more stitching to show you. I've been doing a little here and a little there. I love how it is turning out. Here is a picture I just took to share. I noticed the other day that this piece doesn't have any back stitching. So once I'm done that's it! I love to back stitch tho. Anyone else like to back stitch? I think the back stitching gives it a great pop in look.

Anyways, I've neglected my house hold duties while working so much this weekend, so today will be spent cleaning and doing laundry. I might even make Keith help me rearrange the living room. He HATES when I do that. LOL

Happy stitching and happy day!

Awww! Don't the kiddies look sweet
I love the way your WIP is coming along, love the design.
I love that fabby you bought.
I love to read V.C. Andrews, although it's been awhile. I haven't read her recent new ones. She sure has lots of books, though she has passed on years ago, lol.
I do hope you are feeling better.
