The past couple of weeks have been up and down for me.
I have not stitched on my elephant project at all, so I have no pictures to show you on him.
Since my last post, I was able to purchase the material, DMC threads, and needles to get started on my first HAED. I do so want to start this project, but I really feel like I need to finish "Rough Day" cat since it is the third project of the three that I was hired to stitch. I do not think it would be fair to the people who hired me for me to stitch a different project until what they hired me to do is done, you know what I mean?
I don't have a picture of them, but the tulips that I planted last fall, hoping I was doing them correctly, came up and were beautiful. I planted 50 of the 100 bulbs I purchased last year. I was not sure I was planting them correctly, so I didn't want to plant all 100 in case I was wrong. Also didn't want to possibly lose all those bulbs to my neighborhood squirrels. The tulips looked beautiful for at least two, if not three weeks. This fall I will plant the other 50 so next spring we may have as many as 100 tulips come awake. I have mowed the yard a couple of times already this year. We have used the rototiller in a couple of areas because we want to have a more level yard and we really would like to have a garden of some vegetables this year. Jack would definitely like tomatoes. I don't know what else we are planting for sure, but various things are being discussed.
I got the girls signed up for softball. It was confirmed that Rachel will be put in the draft, even though she doesn't want to be, because a coach who has poor sportsmanship last year is insisting that everyone goes through the draft this year. Rachel's coach last year is going to do everything he can to get Rachel back. It is a quite long story and I honestly cannot remember all the sordid details, but trust me this coach is acting very immature. I just hope that Rachel doesn't end up on the team that she left a couple of years ago. There is a team where the coach was cussing out the kids because he felt they were not giving it their all. You know, honestly, if I had a coach cuss me out when I was 11 years old I don't know if I'd give it my all either.
Jack has been doing alot of bar-be-quing already this year. He has done up ribs, chicken, a pork roast and I cannot remember what else. He has "smoked" a couple different pieces of meat. It has been very good. I am so glad that I bought him this smoker/bbq for Father's Day last summer. He is going to get alot of use out of it, I can tell.
Jack has a pacemaker/ICD unit that was put in in January 2009. I am very glad it was there. Monday of last week at 5:30 in the morning it jolted Jack's heart. By the time the paramedics arrived, Jack was fine, so he stayed home, but he did go to the doctor on Wednesday and had the unit tested and was given the results Friday. His heart rate went up to 262 and then spiked at 400. The gal told Jack those numbers are not compatible with life.
I had a seizure last week. I am becoming quite frightened about these seizures. I am still somewhat confused. Usually after a seizure I am confused until I get some sleep, but I have slept and I am still confused. I am not sure what is going on, why all of the sudden I am having seizures with more frequency. Please pray for me. I have gone, in recent months and years, to having 1 seizure every seven years to having couple of years to now every few months. I had a seizure here at the house Friday night. I was getting the dinner dishes done when I went into it. Rachel and Jack were able to get me in bed before it really hit. That means I have had three separate days since September where I have had seizures.
Well I need to be going. I need to start dinner and get the groceries put away. Until next time everyone! How do tostadas sound for dinner?
