Be Careful What You Wish for LOL

I have been so busy no time to blog. But...be careful for what you wish for. I wished for full time work. It is a blessing, but soooooo busy. I do taxes and the firm that hired me as office manager, wants me to "TEACH" so...for the next 10 weeks I will be teaching tax classes to all the eager and knowledgeable students. I am working through the anxiety of the new job. There is a lot more to the job, teaching, hiring and firing, preparing taxes (yes there are still a lot of people out there who for various reasons still have not filed thier taxes yet---go figure), signing up and placing ads for the school. I think were almost ready.

I did with my new sewing machine finish 3 flour sack towels this month. I will take a pic of the two, have already given one of them away already. I did an embroidery design on the corner. The machine works pretty good except for when I get half way through a design it just decides to break needles and break thread. Any ideas welcome. I have bought new needles, re-threaded, re-wound bobbins and even have gone so far to take the little sticky labels off the thread spool (the girls at the Viking sewing center said that anything can get hung up)

I am getting excited about the advent swap. I have a few things collected. Hard to find a lot Christmassy stuff right now, it's all Halloween. I will post pic next weekend. I am off today so laying low from the visit to the Chiropractor (were talking MAJOR adjustment here). Which means it is time for more ice and naptime. (I like naptime) LOL.

I did finally finish my Christmas tree skirt/table cloth just need to put the backing on it. I am thinking next weekend as well. Next weekend is significant because I am taking the whole weekend off. This weekend I am helping Dad, but next weekend is my time to get caught up on a few things as well as maybe find the kitchen or the living room. Hopefully my new sewing machine will be working with the new needles otherwise I will have to take it in. Grrrr I still owe 150 dollars on it.

Well just a little update, pics will follow soon.

Have a great week and God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
