It's Friday morning here we are into November. I'm focusing on things to be thankful for. A very dear friend on this app is in great financial need. If you're so inclined to pray for them. What if you been up to?

I'm so sorry on both fronts. When my daughter turned 13 I thought that the pod people had kidnapped my sweet daughter and sent home a monster. I pray work is found soon.

This week, I became a great aunt twice! Two beautiful babies were born in different states, but both of their Moms asked me for the exact same homemade baby blanket....appliquéd with a cute baby penguin. One girl, one boy.

Also, I applied for a job, and have an interview on Monday. Its a very different career: Being a vet practice manager instead of the marketing and sales jobs I've had most of my life. Love the people at the practice, love animals. We'll see!

Do you do machine embroidery? Hope you get the job.

Actually, the blankets are made from cut and layered fabrics that create the shape of the design, and I make them up from scratch. They are machine stitched freehand. Details are usually hand embroidered. I have a 23 year old $100 machine.

I did take a machine embroidery class to make a gorgeous pale pink silk stocking covered in flowers. Its stunning, but I didn't like the $7500 machine. Took all the creativity out of it, felt like a fancy factory worker.

Well right now I'm putting of getting ready for work to snuggle my kids. I keep protein bars in my car so I don't have to worry about getting breakfast. A favorite routine.
But a girl at work is getting really rude with me. I'm going to say something

next time she does, but I am afraid I won't say it the way I want to. I get flustered when I'm mad. And her family and the boss's wife are very close.
I love my job and just want her drama to stop. She creates it like crazy and so far I've avoided it

I hate being in someone's drama. I think I'll talk to my dad about it for advice. Luckily my boss hates the drama as much as I do though.

I need a personal assistant/slave driver to keep me on task.
And a wardrobe manager.

I think that cold hard cash in a specific direction would be most effective. World Peace has probably been a popular prayer request for quite a while, and where has that gotten us?

For war not sure prayer it might be much worse. Prayer does help but, heart of man can be evil.

I can relate to financial need.

I have $191,000 in debt that I am working to pay off. Income is sufficient to pay it down quickly, but it's still stressful to see. I'm just glad that I love budgeting and excel

I had three days to create an entire replica amazon rain forest, with the help of five other people. It was exhausting. It was all for a fundraiser. Looked fine when finished, but it was a bitch to construct.

Better week, because both the kids are doing better. Son is going to be involved in research helping grad and post doc students and daughter is quitting her job and had friends over twice! And we scored free tickets to the MSU v. OSU game tomorrow!

It has been a crazy week. I had a bit of a crisis and was very concerned about my future, I broke it off with a girl I have been dating for two years, and I'm just very confused. I'm just taking it one day at a time, I'll get there eventually.

Thank you for that. I think I've been taking the whole situation pretty well all things considered, just need some time to grow and sort everything out.

Break ups are always painful. But better that than making a commitment you both don't really want. I am sorry for your pain.

my sister and her boyfriend dated for 3.5 years and they broke up a month before she graduated. they were both really worried about their futures and it was hard for her but she knew that they both weren't willing to compromise (it was long distance)

and as hard as it was, they both are much better off than trying to stay together just because it was comfortable

We're still grateful for the miracle in our lives this week. Tomorrow we're celebrating my little fella's 3rd birthday. His big brother is sooo excited for him. It makes me smile. :)

Family problems as usual. I'm also very self conscious about my weight lately and it's beginning to take a toll.

If you have an eating disorder try to get help honey love yourself for who you are not what you weigh that was one of the first things I learned when I lost my weight

I know it's just hard.. It's not quite an eating disorder, I don't believe it measures to that.. But I'm just not where I want to be and it really upsets me sometimes.

Are you denying yourself food are you being a bulimic or anorexic or are you just over eating due to the stress. If you need to talk to somebody I'm here for you

I eat when I'm stressed, but I don't have any disorders . Thanks Tops, it means a lot.

I've actually got a bit of housework done this week. For me that's earth shattering news.
