Update Time!

Today I did something I haven't done in a long time - I stayed home! Although I've been wanting to stay home for a while can I tell you that I'm bored. I don't know what to do with myself LOL. I did go out for a few hours earlier to run some errands but that's about it. I've been stitching, so that's a plus but really I wish I would have done more before going back to work tomorrow.

I'm finally done with my house on my BBD *yea* I'm working on the roof now, which shouldn't be too tedious - there's only so much stitching with one color that I can stand for! Atleast purple is prettier and the roof isn't as big as the house. Once I'm done with it I'm going to stitch on The Big Zipper for a while. Here's where I'm at with it:

I've been trying to not shop as much as I use to so I can save some money, and I'm actually doing a good job at it. It's amazing how much I saved in a month. I was so proud of myself that I decided to buy myself a "way to go" gift LOL. When it comes in I'll share a picture :-) Hopefully it comes in next week when I need a pick me up, all of my work days are sort of squished together so it'll seem like I'm working a whole lot more, plus I'm seriously thinking of doing some OT so I can save more and pay off my credit cards quicker.

Well I'm off - I need to walk outside or something before I go crazy LOL. TTFN

Your house looks great! You sound like the shopaholic books...buying gifts for yourself for not buying anything LOL I'm all for it, it's good to reward yourself ;)

I love vegging at home, but I do get what you mean. When it's just me at home, I don't know what to do with myself! LOL. I really like the two pieces you're working on, especially the Big Zipper. I want that for myself, but I'm waiting to see what the other parts of it are going to look like first. Keep up the good work in saving, we've been hit by a ton of bills lately, so definitely no saving for us this month! Hee hee...
