Here are my six...

1. I smoke cigs. I've tried quiting 3 times in the past. Once I quit for 6 months.

2. I love Christmas time, love the pretty lights, all the snowmen, and I would like to have a room in my house decorated for Christmas all year round but Keith won't let me. LOL

3. I use coupons..LOVE to use coupons (if anyone has coupons they could mail to me that would be awesome!!)

4. I don't really have any friends, online or in real life. I can't keep up and I'm selfish with my time.

5. I was married at the age of 15 and divorced at 21. My 1st marriage should have never happen.

6. I hate wearing shoes and socks. If I could go bare foot all the time I would.

A while back A fellow blogger((
http://orgjunkie.com/)) was giving away the couponizer(http://www.thecouponizer.com/). I didn't win this contest so I took the plunge and ordered it. I am in LOVE. Never has organizing my coupons been so easy! IT is a great investment to someone wanting to use coupons but just not sure how to go about it. Since Keith lost his job a while back I've been trying to figure out ways to cut back on our food budget and coupons is the answer! So ladies that don't use coupons could you send them to me? I'll pay for postage.



Now what you all have been waiting for...an update on Moonbeam witch. Well I don't have a lot of progress to show you. I worked another long weekend. Oh..while on that subject I probably should tell you about a major change that will be taking place soon. I have bidded on a new position at work. My hours now are 4 days a week, every Friday,sat,sun and Monday. (EVER WEEK! no weekends off) Well now I am going to be working 5 days a week, with every other weekend off. BUT..I lose a dollar an hour since I won't be working every weekend. So I think in the end I will still be making the same amount of pay. So we will see how that goes.
Anyways...back to moonbeam witch. She is a pain in the butt..I don't think I will ever take on a project that uses so much blending thread. Some days the stitching goes great and other days the blending thread breaks up on me, gets tangled a lot, and some times I have a heck of a time getting my needle threaded. Here is a picture of her...smug looking, eh?

Welp I'm off to catch up on some blogs. Have a great day!

I think of you as an online friend ;)You also need real life friend to nwind from home and work ;)

Great progress: too bad it's a pain ...

At least you will have some week end: it is going to be good for Brandon once he goes to school. Hope Keith will find a job, any job to support you. You are going to burnout otherwise ...

Take care

Moonbeam Witch is going to be so worth it and you're almost there!

Hope the new hours work better for you.

Moonbeam is looking great. I know what you mean about the blending threads, I just finished "My Little Tree of Hope" stocking and it had a lot of blending threads in it. I was having trouble threading the needle too until I found a needle threader - it works great. Also Thread Heaven makes it a lot easier to stitch with.

Good luck with the new job - sure hope it comes through for you - every second weekend off would be great.

All the best from your on-line friend.

Moonbeam Witch is really turning out cute! Can't wait to see her finished :)

The witch looks beautiful. I FINALLY finished! Thanks for tagging me, but please don't do it again!

Your stitching progress is looking great!

Don't worry yourself about quitting smoking. You'll know when it's your time. It took me 24 years before I quit and made it. It's now been over 10 months since I quit. Don't beat yourself up because you haven't quit. Like I said, you'll know when it's time. Don't pressure yourself. :)

Great work on your witch. Metallics are rotten to work with, but the effect is GREAT!

I hope the new work works for you :)
