Twilight has become a movie!

I am so STOKED! You can see the previews here. Its only the story of Book 1 out of the series but I can't wait! Tomorrow I am ordering book 3 and 4 too. :)

Chiloe - to answer your questions. Time said as 1400 is military time. From 0100 to 1200 is normal and anything after that 1300 to 2400 if you subtract 12 hours you will know the time then too. :) W are due to go back to the states in Dec 2009 if all goes as planned too. :)

Pumpkin Patch Trip


Well, on Monday we were off to a pumpkin patch trip with Destiny's brownie troop. It was about a 15 minute drive but I cannot recall the small city we went to for it. Anyway each of the girls got their own pumpkins and all for about 3.50 Euro which was much cheaper than what our local commissary wanted. We were going to be taken out to the actual field but it was too muddy since we had gotten so much rain this past week. So here are some pics of their trip. I also got DH to stop by the mail room before we went and book 1 had arrived! I read on the way there and back and finished only 1 chapter that night but by Wednesday I had finished the book. I am definitely an Edward fan! Anyway so I also have finished book 2 last night and that's why I have NO stitching to show for this week. These books were so good I could not put them down. This week I will be ordering book 3 and 4 of the series. I did stitch the main square for Round 10 of Fair and square exchange and a little on EMS Rose Sampler but its not enough for a picture. But this week I am going to finish up the last of my exchanges for the year and will probably pick up my EMS Rose Sampler afterward to make up for this week being lost to The Twilight Series. :)

Today we have Juliette Low's Birthday party. She was the founder of the scouts and so every year her birthday is celebrated. I am not sure I will have any pictures since we are just planning on dropping our scout off and running to the PX for some things we need since DH has to work today. He is driving to Ramstein for a soldier pickup and won't be back till late again. He left at 1330 yesterday and wasn't back until 2400. But at least he has Monday off so I guess that makes up for it. :)

F&S Exchange


Autumn Round
to Wendy Jo
I'm so glad you like them! :)

I have finished a small black work I started yesterday but i want to do the finishing before I show it.

I also had ordered book 1 and 2 of the Twilight series a few weeks ago and so when a packaged arrived I got all excited. I opened it up and there was book 2! So onto the book shelf it goes till book 1 comes in. I didn't realize how thick these books were either! It's marked for ages 12 and up but its a whopping 563 pages with normal sized print. I can't wait to for book 1 to finally show up!!!

EMS Rose Sampler

Alright so here is what I have been working on the last few days. See the rose on the left with the stem and leaves, well that's part of part 7. If i do 2 parts each month then I can finish on time and with each part taking me a week to finish depending on time and schedule and my moods then I could finish it sooner. Anyway I have decided this, every other week or so I am going to do a part until its completed. The last 2 parts I'll do in December. I'm sorry if this pic looks blurry It was hard to locate a flat surface big enough to take an entire picture. And you see the little red spot in the bottom middle? Well dear Kiley thought she would touch my fabric and had Crystal Light on her hands! So I am going to finish up Part 7 and then off to wash this off.

I went to the Dr's this morning to check on my blood pressure because I have hypertensiona nd though I am on Atenonol for it the last Dr said my BP was high twice now and I needed to come in another time and have it checked. Well, Dr Bentley was new and so I wanted to go to my Dr who knows my history and all. So I saw Dr win and also had the nurses use the manual method to check my blood pressure because the machines always read me as high. Well it was normal so no med change there. Thn he started asking me how my home life was going and the kids and the school, blah, blah, blah and anyway turns out I have depression. Well, after that diagnoses that explained a whole lot. I am not so depressed i want to run off and kill myself. But I am enough that he has started me on a low dose of Zoloft to see how I feel in a month, if not then we will up the dosage and wait another month. He also suggested I go to the counseling Dr's there but I can't open up to complete strangers, especially doctors, I always feel like they are judging me and wondering if I am lying or just being a drama queen. Yes, I worry continously about everything and anything and so I am so stressed and depressed it has resulted in chronic pain. I will explain this all to DH tonight and see how he takes the news. Fingers crossed everyone.

Fair and Square - Halloween, Autumn and Round 9


Well, I wasn't sure if my partner Shelley P. has received my squares. She was having some health problems and so I RAK'd her with the squares for this round in hopes to brighten her day. Vonna said she would stitch me some squares which is totally sweet of her. I hope you like my squares Shelley and are feeling better soon. I saw on the list she is marked as received so I am able to show you all what I had stitched for her. :)

EDITED TO ADD: I went to the post office and received a couple of goodies. :) I received my Autumn Round from Wendy Jo and my Round 9 squares from Marion. They are both just perfect! Thank you both!

DMC used
32 ct Linen
Completed: Oct 03, 2008

And here are my 2 munchkins. Destiny came home today and had her snack and as we were trying to get the second word pronounced she fell asleep. I guess reading is tiring work, LOL. She looked so cute I had to snap a pic and of course then Kiley had to have her pic taken too. :) OH! Did I share with you my wonderful news? destiny is reading at a 0.6 as of the first week of school which means her reading level is 6 months into 1st grade so she's several months ahead in her reading! I'm so proud of her!

Day 4 SMO SAL, an exchange and Puppy News!

Here is where I am at for my SAL. I am not sure if you can tell but the baby snowman is stitched too and I did him up in DMC's glow in the dark thread. The girls think its the coolest thing. :)
And here is Round 9 that was sent to Marion. I saw today on the board that she has received my squares. I'm glad you liked them Marion. They were fun to stitch. :)

ALSO: If you look under user profiles on the Fair and Square blog you can see my work profiled on the top. Look here. I'm so excited!

And on Puppy News:

Good News: Oskar will be arriving around Oct 15th instead of November 24th. The people that have him right now decided to drive the extra 15 minutes and go to a certified vet thank god cause its also saving us about $200.

Bad News: Oskar's brothers Willy and George decided to beat up on him and pulled his front leg too hard so he went to the vet who said he had a pulled ligament by his elbow but no worries, a week on inflamatories and some rest and he'll be all better. ALSO we found out he is allergic to plastic! Can you believe that?? Apparently it is common for mini dachsunds but she did say there won't be any harm during his short 15 hour flight here. So we will have to buy a metal kennel for him and he can only have metal food dishes but thats fine as thats what we had bought him.
