Feeling stressed [Nov. 1st, 2011|07:04 pm]

[mood |stressedstressed]

I am feeling stressed out and lonely.

This year at work is interesting . . . . I am not a fan of teaching middle school. Nor being at two schools. It could be worse like no job. Guess I shouldn't complain.

Wedding stuff needs to get done.

Kris is back in Houston, he found a well paying stable job.

Busy year . . . .

I wish I hand my old therapist's number. Oh well, thats life.

We went to his dad's place for a few day. I tried sea food gumbo not my favorite the smell was to fishy for me, and crawfish yum they are tasty little mud bugs. We went to Maw Maw Deans ate nummie pie and finished a puzzle. Played a game like sorry at Kris's dad's house it was fun.

I angered the weaving god. [Dec. 13th, 2010|06:22 am]

[mood |busybusy]

So long time no post.

I have been away due to the fact that it is my first year teaching. I am busy. Busy is not even the correct word to use. I eat, sleep and breath school and my students. All of the frustrations are worth it.

Today However is a snow day a.k.a. a weaving day and finish christmas shopping day. My cat says it is a sleep in with me day mom. But I can't. I am weaving a scarf for my boyfriends mom, she lives in TX so it has to be light weight. At first I made this beautiful warp of mixed yarns set wider to make a gauzy plaid. Well, first off I had to get another thing of the loom. While I was finishing that one of my pulleys to lift my shaft broke. GAAAAHHHHHHH I fixed it with some yarn. Yay! It works. I warp my beautiful warp and it is all set. I start weaving, I think this looks like shit. I ask my mom what she thinks she thinks it looks nice so I keep weaving I get to about over half way finished and my ties to the back beam snap. GAHHHHHH! The scarf self destructed. I couldn't add enough weight to tension it so I just took it off. I looks like shit my gut was right. I kept it to remind me and to use it for nuno felting. So know I am weaving her a bamboo scarf and using woven shibori. My gut is much happier with this one. If you are dreaming about weaving something else the entire time you are weaving something just stop and start over.

I have to get all of my christmas stuff wrapped by sunday. o_@ eep But I get to see my Texan hehehe ^^

Best Fourth of July ever [Jul. 7th, 2010|08:20 am]

[mood |lovedloved]

My Texan came to visit for the first time last weekend.
It was awesome. The First day I showed him around Detroit, ate at greektown, went to Belle Isle, and showed my work at the Belmont. At home he tried Vernors for the 1st time. *giggles* He got the fizz up the nose experience.

The second day we went up to Lake Huron and had a picnic on the beach. He was super awesome in Mary Maxim looking at yarn.



The water was really nice and warm, unless you grew up in Texas, it was freezing. We got sunburns, but still had awesome time. Drove back home took a little nap, then got Lebanese for dinner.

The Third day we just hung out around the house. I made a big breakfast, and popcorn, then mom made ribs for dinner. At the end of the day he was to stuffed to move. We did our jobs as Crawfords/ Italians.



Us at belle isle

I am going to Visit him in August. Can't wait.
