New Year

2008! Not starting off exactly the way I wanted but it will do.

First off, I had a wonderful Christmas with my family in Austin. There was one little glitch when one of the CV joints on my car broke on the way to Austin but Dad took care of that in Austin before we came back.

I must have been a very good girl because I received a lot of really good gifts. I still have some more gifts coming as I have not yet done Christmas with my girlfriends or my honey either!

One of the gifts that I did receive was this cute craft tote bag. I now have something I can put my cross stitch projects in! I can tote them with me all the time! I'm quite excited!

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, my sailor was not able to come home for the holidays. First it was car trouble, then it was work and then he came down with the flu. So we didn't get to spend any time together. We are trying to reschedule our visit but I have my annual convention this month so that has me really super busy and then he ships out again on the 8th of February. We will have a week of down time between the end of my convention and him shipping off but we still don't know if we will be able to arrange anything! He doesn't ship off for his 6 month tour till June so hopefully things will slow down at some time for the two of us and we will get to see each other. Until then, thank goodness for cell phones, text messaging and emails!!!

This holiday season was so very busy! I think that this has been one of my busier seasons! It wasn't very conducive to cross stitching but I do have an update on my Iriskeeper!

Resolutions for the new year:

1) Try to be more patient

2) Be less dramatic

Stitching resolutions:

1) finish the Iriskeeper

2) Start HAED Queen of Hearts

3) Finish The Kiss

Hopefully now that the holiday season is over, I will be able to post more frequently. Although I have noticed that other blogs I read must have been just as busy as they haven't posted very much either!

I hope 2008 brings all the happiness and love that everyone deserves!
