Middle of the Week Update

By Crossstitchyourheart @TMNienaber

Good morning again fellow bloggers.  You’ve succeeded in making it to Wednesday! If you can survive today…well, you’ve made it through this much of the week.  I’m waiting for the day when the end of the week actually means something.  It’s a little depressing when you get to the middle of the week only to realize you work weekends which makes “hump day” just another day of the week.  Oh to live hours like a normal person again.

This week has been quite a busy one.  I’ve been catching up on all those movies and shows I love while stitching and working on a few books at a time.  I recently started two books I had on my list for review thinking that neither one of them would be totally encompassing and I could alternate back and forth when I got board.  Then I decided to start another book I have a paper copy of so I don’t have to bring my ereader back and forth to work with me.  Then I hit a problem…

All three of these books have turned out to be fantastic, so I’m stuck in a tough place.  I don’t want to put down one book to start the other ones, but I want to find out what happens in all three at the same time.  What a hard life

 The three books are: Warrior Girl (my indie review), Sisterland (my major-publisher review), and The Age of Miracles (my carry to work book).  All fantastic reads that I hope stay that way.

Of course I haven’t neglected my stitching either, and here’s my progress

I’ve made it through half a page since you’ve last seen the project and I’m hoping to get the page finished off by the end of the week.  Then I’ll be almost done with the sky and I can start working on the leo lion and sunflowers!  Still hoping to have this project done by the beginning of August, but that might be a little optomistic with everything else I’m trying to squeeze in to the summer.  Still, to have made this much progress on a HAED at all is an accomplishment, so I’m going to look at it that way.

And just as a side note…I’m waiting to hear back about a final round job interview for a job that would be perfect for me while I go to grad school with the possibility of full time after I get the degree.  In addition to that, it would also mean I can quit the job at the department store that will not be named which has been very stressful the last few months and things don’t look like they’ll be getting better soon, and being able to quit, go to a job in a field a love, and still have enough money to pay for school would be the best possible outcome.  I’m grateful to have a job, I truly am, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting something even better.

So, if you could all send out those kind thoughts and prayers it would be appreciated.  Fingers crossed!
