Like a good Neighbor

State Farm is there!

Okay I couldn't resist, I know you all have been wondering when I was going to do that, so there it is, I got it out and I am feeling much better now, lol.......

So far work is going good, I am really enjoying the socializing part more than anything I think. After being a stay at home mom for so many years which I loved I didn't get much socializing except what I got with ages 16 and under, so haveing other women to chat with here and there through the day has been very nice.

I still have tons to learn but thank goodness everyone is being very patient with me. For now anyway,lol.....

Well I have not got any sewing done and am so missing my machine and sewing room. I was planning on doing some this past weekend but we ended up going out of town to do some shopping so I am not complaining I never turn down a day of shopping. During our shopping spree we got one of these

we got a couple of games

and the kids have not stopped playing it since we brought it home. I did get to play it for a little bit last night and I must say it is very addictive. The Mario games are alot like the ones from the old Nintendo game which I loved and I could play. Fun... Fun...Fun......................................

Day 2 of my new job

Hi all just wanted to update you on how my new job is going, well so far so good. I have tons to learn and I am a very impatient person and want to know everything there is to know like yesterday which makes anything I do new very frustrating to a point that is, don't get me wrong I love learning new things but I also love knowing what the heck I am doing so that I can atleast get somethings accomplished. Everyone I work with is awesome and I am not the only new one in the office, just the newest, there is another gal that started about 3 months ago and has assured me that it will all come in time and to just be patient and know that no one expects me to know everything like yesterday, except me that besides my lack of patience everything is great. I love the fact that I can wake and dress up to a T daily instead of hanging out in my sweats and t-shirt all day, which I can promise you will be my attire for the entire weekend minus Sunday for church ofcourse. My boss is great, very funny and down to earth, easy going and easy to get along with. My co-workers are wonderful also, I really enjoy being around other women even if it is just talking about what we are doing work wise, which is not all we talk about we do yack alot here and there also.

Okay will hope all is going well with all my blogger buddies. I have not done anything creative at all this week. I am sure it will take me a few weeks to get us to working and haveing a life also. I do plan on getting some sewing done this weekend though, I have so many patterns that I want to make, like now, duh.....but I am going to try and break them down into what I want now and what I can wait on so that I will get started somewhere instead of getting no futher than the decision making that never gets made. lol.

I will post more as I have more to post, lol..........Yes, I am tired and need sleep. 5a.m comes mighty early. Maybe I should just call it a night and try and make since of it all tomorrow.
Good Night.........

Tomorrow is my big day

Well tomorrow is officially my first day at my new job, they called Friday and said the boss decided to take the holiday off and it is a paid holiday, even for me, imagine that....I have not even started working yet and already getting benefits.

I can say that now that I am down to the wire I am very nervous and ofcourse have a mile long list of things I want to do before I start working, that will actually take me years to do, lol. I don't know if any of you are like me but seems like when I have something important coming up that is going to take time or if I have company coming over I make a huge list of things to do that I think I have to do RIGHT NOW, like clean the entire house including drawers, lawn, auto's, garage and such just cause my in-laws are coming into town. As if they are going to be looking in my drawers, my hubby thinks I am nuts and maybe I am, are any of you nuts also? So I made this to do list and have gotten a few things done on it like grocery shopping and cleaning my bedroom and ummmm, well, I, ummmmmm, hmmmm, there is only about 500 more things I need to get done before morning. Not so sure I am going to make

Ok, wish me luck friends, I will post tomorrow and let you all know how it went.

Giveaway you need to get over to........

FOR YOUR GIFT CLOSET GIVEAWAY......................................................................
Hi just a quick entry to tell you about a great giveaway that I thought you all would be interested in. Go by and check it out and enjoy the rest of this ladies blog at
Also wanted to thank all of you for the comments about me being exhausted. All of your info was very helpfull so tomorrow I am off to get me some vitamins and start doing some walking and eating better. Funny thing is my BFF told me all the same just minutes after she read my blog. Thank you K for always haveing my back and for me always being important to you.
Tomorrow I do plan on doing some sewing, I got my closet cleaned out today and it felt so good to have things organized and clothes set up to wear for a couple of weeks for work. Have to iron some of them over the weekend but besides that and adding jewlery which I will be making over the weekend, I am good. I will post pics of whatever I make for any extra ideas to add to or take away from.
Till tomorrow, Adios.................

Goodmorning all, please read and respond if you can.

Goodmorning friends..............................................

Well first off I have been ask if I am going to be continueing at Wal-Mart since I will be starting at State Farm on Monday and the answer is No, I will be working 40hr. weeks at the new job so have no desire to work more than that.

Okay now onto my big question:

I stay sleepy, or tired most of the day and it has gotten to where I get next to nothing done because of my need for a nap. I also sleep around 10 to 12 hrs a night because lately or for the last few months anyhow I have not been able to wake up before 9'ish. I have never had this problem and it is getting out of control. I cannot have this with me starting to work. I will be working from 8-5 and will have to drive atleast 22 miles to work everyday and that means I will have to leave my home no later than 7:15am which means I am going to need to wake by 5:30-6:00am to allow me time to get ready for the day, have coffee and breakfast.
I will tell you that I am very over weight which has caused my lack of exercise which had caused me to be overweight. I am very un motivated through the day and find myself to be almost lazy ok not almost, just lazy......
I hate the feeling, I wake every morning feeling like I need more sleep, I never wake feeling refreshed or like I slept well, always wake feeling like I had very to no sleep at all and I feel that way most of the day, ugh............

Any ideas or diagnosis,lol?

I am not currently takeing any vitamins and I can say I do not eat well for the most I eat very little and it is usually just what ever I put in my mouth to satisfy me for the moment.

Just a quick post before I am off to bed. I got the job at State Farm, YAY! I start next Monday which is also great cause it gives me this week to sew and do some well needed cleaning, plus tons of arrands that I need to tend to. I was so happy when I received the call this morning that I almost pee'd myself. My soon to be boss is such a nice guy and all the gals that work at the office that I have met are really great also. Thanks for all you much needed and welcomed prayers, it payed off.

Going to leave you with a few things that I love that are in the upcoming Burda Magazine. Some are gotta haves. lol

Hugs to all.

My new fabrics and other news!

Oh how I missed all of you while I have been away from blog land. Thought I would spend a few minutes tonight and update my blog.

I am still working at Wal-Mart but I put in for a job with State Farm and did a interview today with the owner, which went very well. I am hopeing to hear back from them by tomorrow as to whether or not I got the job. I am very hopefull, this job would be 8-5 and weekends and holidays off which would be the ever changing schedule at Wal-Mart with which haveing weekends off is very rare. So all of you keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that this is what God has in his plans for me.

Onto fabric..........

I got some really good bargins on some fabric this last week, some where as love as $.50 per yard and none where any higher than $1.50 per yard. Here they are in all their glory.

This picture does no justice because they are each very adorable. Several of them will be combined to make skirts for my girls. This will be my first go at combining fabrics so I hope I get it right, my inspiration came from a lady with great talent and has an eye for color, stop by and visit her blog @ I promise you will not be disappointed.

I also took a pic of some of my stash, will take pics of all the other when I get it all sorted and put in a place where it can be photographed.

And last but not least a pick of some of the new fabrics that will make a lovely skirt for my girls.

They will all be used in the makeing of one skirt(each skirt). Lets see how I do with this mix of colors and designs.

Finally if any of you are wondering about my recycleing I am still working on that, spent several days this week folding and putting away the clothes so that I knew what I had to work with. Also found some great bargins at the thrift store that will be great for re-makeing into some outfits for my girls. The fabric used on each that I bought is great, I love them all and can't wait to come up with something wearable for the girls out of them. I will take pics tomorrow and share them on my next post. Who knows some of them may become purses. hmmmmm...............

Until tomorrow, nighty night................
