Marvelous Monday Update 3/1/2010

SCHOOL
Crisis averted! I made a trip to my local satellite campus about the textbook for my online class. Both ladies there were SOOO helpful! They immediately got on the phone to at least four students they knew had taken the class and might have a textbook. They acquired it and I was able to get the chapter I needed for my last two weeks of class.

This week is finals week. I have one more paper to write, and two tests. Then I am free... FREE! (for a couple weeks anyway until the next semester starts).


STITCHY STUFF
Between school and dating (Yes, I'm dating again!), I haven't had much time to stitch. I did get to put a few stitches on the ABC's last night. Here's my progress:

Hey busy lady nice update. I know you are not going to have any trouble with your upcoming finals. What are you going to do for spring break? It is only 55 here today. It has been cold for weeks. We are sick of the cold as I am sure you are too.

Dating??? Good for you :)

Terry said...

Good luck on the tests! Glad you were able to get the rest of the textbook you needed to finish the class. Too bad you couldn't get some type of refund on the original book that was missing half the information.

ABC's is looking good! Have fun dating and keep us posted on how everything is going. ;)

Terri said...

Good luck on your exams and great stitching. I'm glad you are dating again. What happened to that one guy?

CJ said...

Hey Girl -

I have been so busy I have missed two weeks of your blog. Glad, oh so glad to hear you are dating again. Can't wait to hear more about him. Your stitching looks great and great job with school.

I am on a sitiching hiatus due to a recent diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel syndrome. So no stitching ffor a bit until I get this pain under control. It is getting better, so I am hopeful that I can control it.

Take care and I look forward to your next update. Any predictions for the Oscars?
