I have been stitching. But one is a RAK & the other is a Pay It Forward. The RAK is in the mail, and provided it doesn’t get lost in some black hole between here and CA it should arrive today. So no picture yet.
And my PIF, I love the design, but the top of it is sooooooooo boring. Oh well, it’ll be so cute when it’s finished. Again, no picture yet.
Yesterday was ds’s 10th birthday (that’s him and his kitty Killer, rotting their brains in front of the tv). My baby is in double digits!!!! I’m such a bad parent. He got a cell phone from us. Wait! I know a 10 yr old with a cell, I’m nuts. But I have reasons.
1. When he goes out to play in the subdivision I give him mine to take with him,
2. So I can find him if he’s a) Late b) Need him home early c) Just to hear his lovely little voice.
3. It’s got a GPS chip in it.
4. It tells time.
5. Even though I tell myself it’s safe etc, it’s still hard to let him out of my sight.
Basically he thinks he got a cool toy, but what I did was buy myself a little piece of mind. Oh and it keeps his grubby little paws off my phone. It was a cheap phone (Virgin Moble Oyster) and we’re making him pay half of the $20 top off minutes that you have to buy every 3 months. And if he runs through all him minutes before the 90 days, the money comes out of his pocket. Dare I hope this might be a learning experience in budgeting? I won’t be holding my breath.
Last Thursday I took a class at 24 Hour Fitness. It’s called 24 S.E.T. (strength endurence training). I could barely walk for 2 days after, and didn’t make it back to the gym until Monday. I also declared that I wouldn’t let the class beat me, so I went back again today. My butt hurts. 😉 Hopefully I’ll be able to walk tomorrow…
