Thanks for all the smile awards! I was surprised and HAPPY that I make people smile :) It came at a perfect time too because I was feeling in the dumps (still am but I'm getting over it) More about that later! I'm off to bed. Here's the link to my wishlist blog PrettyPnkWishes

Well while there I had 2 lovely surprises waiting for me - FRAMING! I have no place to hang them but I bought some easel thingees and plan on displaying at Kelly's apartment. His apartment is so bare, I wish I had something big enough to hang. He wanted to hang one of my Shepherd's Bush on the biggest wall of his house which just made the wall look bigger LOL. Right now the plan is to display them by the window in the living room. It has a big enough inside ledge to put things on.
I didn't get it framed with the mats and stuff because I didn't like them. It looked too washed out. I love how it looks in this frame better!
I opted for the frame and mats on this one and the frame is just so funky! The mats are too, I love it :)
I'm suppose to be stitching on my Fair and Square Exchange but yesterday I had no wanting to stitch on it and picked up Victoria's Quaker again. I love stitching on this piece, I really do. It's big but stitches up somewhat quickly. Here's what I got done in about an hour or so of stitching. May not look like much but to me it is. You can see what it looked like before here.
Now this is something I DID NOT STITCH. I got it from CATS. I forget which booth but they were selling old finished models. The ladies in the booth had no idea of the designer so I bought it hoping someone would know something about it. If no one knows then I may just stitch from it. I felt really bad buying it. I only paid $18 for it and I know as a stitcher it's worth more.
I took Ana to the doctor, it's worse that I thought it was. She has allergies but they're pretty bad :( She has to be on medication (one being an antibiotic) for atleast 4 weeks. She's still itchy but not as she was before and her face is still red sometimes but she's getting better. I hate having to shove pills down her throat. I don't have to do it all the time, the doctor gave me Pill Pockets to make a treat out of her pills and sometimes (most of the time) she takes it but sometimes she has no interest in it. Here she is on her new bed (I had to throw out the old one because we don't know what is giving her this allergy.)
I work tonight and I'm not looking forward to it. I called out absent on Sunday because of my cousin's daughter's baptism (I am her Godmother) so I don't even feel like seeing my nurse manager in the morning. I going to stitch for a while before having to get ready to leave. But before I sign out I wanted to share 2 things (non-stitching related) I'm going back to school for my BSN (Bachelor's in Nursing) in January. My hospital has this new program where they offer classes in the hospital. Adelphi University is the school that's offering it, I went to Adelphi and wanted to go back for my BSN so I signed up. I start in January! I also started studying for certification. When I pass the test (I still have some more requirements to fill before I apply mainly continuing education credit/hours) I get a new letter to add after my name (RN-BC or RN-C) and more money :-) Ok now I go off to stitch and watch season one of Heroes. Save the cheerleader, save the world!

I still have one more exchange to stitch for and then I'm done with exchanges and can stitch for me again :) The only problem with this exchange is that I don't know what to stitch *ugh* don't you just hate when that happens? I did pull out a few charts and am sort of leaning towards one of them but I always have this big fear that maybe my partner won't like it and then my stitching will be thrown to the side...forgotten. Maybe I'm paranoid but that's just how I feel.
Well, I'm off. I don't want to bore anyone with my ramblings of nothing-ness. Thanks for the comments on my last finish! They are always appreciated, comments make a blogger feel so much better...it's like people actually read about (or stop by to see) my finishes or me :) I hate not posting a picture soooooo I'll leave you with one of my favorite gal. She's having a really bad time with her allergies this season, it's so bad that I'm taking her to the doctor tomorrow. She keeps scratching her face causing her fur to thin around her muzzle and her eyes are all red and her belly :( I know she's just miserable, after an allergy shot she'll feel better *I hope.* Anyway here she is...
