My next project

I really don't know why but this week I have been suffering from insomnia. I haven't slept much all week but last night I went to bed a little after 11:00 and then a 2:00, I was wide awake. So to the coffee pot I went and made a pot of coffee. I then decided to look thru my crochet folder (on desktop), then I opened the clothing folder. I wanted to crochet something, my ghan is in the bedroom and I didn't want to wake hubby. After looking at a lot of clothing pics and patterns I decided to just make a shirt with my own pattern. Something easy, not much thinking to do. I did find a stitch that I had never done, and I decided to use it. It is called the extended single crochet. I like the look and it is working up pretty fast. This is what I have done so far. I know the pic isn't that good but since I haven't shared any photos lately I thought I would share this with you. This will be the body of the tank top. After I get the body done I will add some straps, then crochet around all of it and it will be done. Like I said, not much thinking to this one.
Well it is time for me to go jump in the shower and get ready for my day. I have got to go work out and tan then go to work.

Well today was weigh in day and I haven't lost any but I didn't gain any either!!!! That is the good news. I still have a long way to go!

I did get some crocheting done last night. I worked on my ghan. I think I'm getting bored with it. I do have over 50% of it done, but since it is all the same color I think that is way. Maybe when I get on the border it won't be so boring. It is a different color. So I'm hoping that will help, and of course I will almost be done by then.

Hope everyone has a great evening.....

Well I didn't get any crocheting done last night after work. Bad me!

I have gone for a 3 mile walk this morning and it was great. I'm not going to be working out today so I decided to go walking. Tomorrow is weigh in day...lets hope I've lost some more! I'm pretty sure I have cause the other day I got into a pair of pants that I haven't wore in a year! I was so excited! I have also been trying on shorts that were tight and they aren't anymore, Woo Hoo!!!! I have got to get to drinking more water, I like water but I just don't drink enough of it.

Today since I don't have to work I do plan on doing a lot of housework, my guys didn't do everything they were suppose to, (see previous entry about that). But I didn't figure they would.

Sorry for the interuption but Ozzy decided I needed to be loving him instead of touching my keyboard. :) You gotta love that, a cat being jealous of the keyboard!

See you later (if blogger will let Me!)

My week and Nascar

I tried to post this yesterday, but again blogger wouldn't let me so I'm trying again...
Well I tired to post again twice yesterday and again blogger wouldn't let me. So I have contacted blogger but I haven't heard from them yet and I still don't know if this will post. But I'm trying!!

I've only gotten 1 of the scrubbies half done. I was really wanting to finish it last night, but I was just to tired, so I went to bed at 9:30. Yes I know that is early but this old woman was tired. LOL. I do feel much better this morning. I haven't even worked on the CTC ghan this week, and do you realize that this is the last week in March? So I have got some serious crocheting to do this week. I have Monday off, so guess what I will be doing Monday? That's right crocheting and doing housework. Yes the housework never ends! I have to work today and I have given my guys a list of cleaning to have done before I get home. Well see how that goes. But I'm sure I'll be doing most of it tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to work on my 100 list this week. Ok maybe I should have said last week. At work I had to pull extra hours because we had a very big inspection on Friday. The guy that was doing the inspection rates your department on a scale of 1 to 10 and he said he doesn't give out 10's (that is the best you could get). The deli received two 9's! Yeah! The manager was so proud of the whole store that he is going to do something special for all of us. Oh yeah the whole store done great! Well since I have to work today I don't get to watch Nascar, but next week guess who I am going to meet? Tony Stewart!!! Yes, he is coming to Batesville, because if you are a Nascar fan you know that Mark Martin is from Batesville and he has a car lot in Batesville, and some of the drivers come to the car lot to sign autographs and meet the fans. I missed Kasey Kahne, and I absolutely am a big fan of Kasey's! Now if I could only meet Dale Jr.! Oh how sweet that would be. :) And of course I'll share photos of Tony and hopefully I'll be right next to him. I was planning on going to Taladaga this year but since I'm working at a new job I can't go, so next year you can guess when I'm taking my vacation! My sister is going to go with us cause she is also a big Dale Jr. fan. She was standing in his driveway getting her picture made and guess who happen to drive by? Yes, Dale Jr. himself. He waved at her, and her picture was taken at that moment and you could see the shock on her face. Now I have met Mark Martin many years ago, and that was before he was a pro driver. Many years ago my dad used to be a truck driver for Mark's dad. We had went over to their house for some reason and I met him then. I have seen him racing here in Batesville on the dirt track. We use to go to the races almost every weekend when I was younger.

Well I've rambled enough today, so I better get going and get my day started.... Till next time.....

Trying to post again

I know it has been a while, but blogger wouldn't post my post! So I'm trying again and let's hope it makes it this time.

I'm still crocheting on my C-T-C ghan, but I have also been working on some scrubbies, for some of the ladies that I work with. They all love my crocheting so I decided to make them something.

I'm doing good on my diet, so far I've lost 3 lbs. Yeah! I would really like to win this diet challenge cause there is $140 dollars at stake! But then again, I'd also like to see some of the heavier women that are on the diet challenge win, just so it would help keep them motivated to keep losing weight. We wanted to do this challenge different from the last one. On this one you cannot take pills or have had any surgeries, just hard exercise and healthy eating. Also on this challenge the winner will be determined by the combined total of weight loss and inches lost. We all had our inches measured on the first day and we won't do the measurements again till May 10. But we will do a weekly weigh in. That is to help keep us motivated. Oh yeah and if you gain a pound, it will cost you a quarter. So the pot could get bigger but let's hope not. :)

Well its time for me to get my day started so till next time.....

Explaining last post

The reason I've added a weight loss tracker is because starting March 15, I will be in a diet challenge. For each of us that are going to be in the diet challenge it will cost us $10. If you gain any weight, it will cost you more. :( So I can't gain any. Hopefully I will be able to keep it updated correctly. I'm hoping to post it after each of my entries. We'll see how that goes. Oh yeah the diet will last for 8 weeks, till May 10th. I really don't care if I win I just want to lose weight! So I will be posting about my weight loss and excercise.

trying something new

I'm trying something new, so it might work and then again it might not! :) I have so many things to learn about this computer. LOL.


Well I've been crocheting on my corner to corner ghan, and I'm a little over half way done. As soon as I figure out how to post those little boxes in the sidebar for progress of WIP's, I'll get that on the blog, and I think that would help be a motivator for me to see them get to 100% done. ;)

As I was reading blogs this morning, I read at that they have started a granny square a-long. I thought about joining in on it cause I have started a 12inch granny square ghan. But I don't know when I will get it done since I'm doing the c-t-c ghan. That is my main focus right now. Oh and a couple of the groups that I'm in have been talking about doing crochet a-longs. One of them is going to be a freeform a-long, and this picture is a great inspiration. Isn't that beautiful? I think it is breath taking. I've never done freeform but have admired many projects made in that form of crochet.

Well its time to go get some housework done and of course some crochet. :)

Do you see that cat? Well I have a black cat and he is my baby. But this morning I was ready to put him out. At 2:30 am he decides to wake me up because he was hungry. He thinks he has to eat every few hours. And I just happen to be the type of person that when I get woke up I can't go back to sleep. This is going to be a long day. I have to be at work at 7:00 this morning. Oh what a long day this is going to be. Thank you, Ozzy, (That's my cats name). He is as sweet as can be and he does love me. He wants to be in my lap when I'm sitting and wants me to hold him all the time. As a matter of fact he is curled up in my lap right now.

Crochet Update

This is what I finished in February. I decided to make something small in order to get something done each month. These are my own pattern, but I haven't written it up yet. They are quick and easy to do. I'm still working on my corner to corner afghan and the 12inch squares pattern, even though I've only gotten 2 squares done. I'm really gonna try to get the corner to corner ghan done this month.
Well I did it. I went ahead and quit my full time job. I feel so much better!!! I had gotten to the point that I really hated going to work. So now I'm just working my 2 part time jobs. I'm really, really happy!!!! I have more time with my family, more time to crochet, and more time on the net. (I love reading blogs and looking up patterns). And I belong to a few crochet groups, and I love sharing things with them. I have made some really good friends that I would have never met otherwise. You Rock Ladies!!!!
