It Just Doesn't Feel Right!

I haven't crossed one X since training week here in New Jersey.  Do you think I will forget how?
It's not the job that's too difficult...it's the HOURS.  They asked us to work seven days a week.  Masterchief worked two weeks solid but I convinced him (ok I begged him) to take yesterday off with me.  He got some much deserved rest.  I didn't rest all that much and now I think I should have.  I've never called off work before since getting in to this business but today I did.  Everything hurts.  I will be spending most of the day in bed.

Thanks to all of you who offered advice on my picture problem.  I won't have time to look in to it until I get home so no pics until then.  It's not like I'm stitching anything anyway.

The Strawberry Sampler called and left a message telling me my LIAM sampler is framed and ready for me to pick it up.  Trouble is I only have Monday's off and they are closed Monday's.  Whoops!  I'll have to get it when this job is over.

In the meantime....want to see what I've been doing?  GO HERE

Take care of  yourselves.  I miss reading all your blogs and seeing what you all have been working on.  I will have so much to catch up on when I return home in May.

Going back to bed.  Hopefully this is only a 24 hour thing.

Progress, a Finish and HELP!!

Hello Friends!

It's been a long week here in New Jersey.  Masterchief is already in the plant preparing things for the outage to begin.  I spent the week in training on the other side of the parking lot.  I didn't have very many tests to take this time as some of them are only due once a year and I was just here in the Fall.  This next Fall I will get hit with most of them once again!  There is one test however that everyone is required to take before gaining access to the plant EVERY time.  It's called the "procedures test".  I suppose I got too full of myself and didn't study as hard as I should have because I didn't pass it on Friday.  I am allowed one more chance to take and pass it on Monday.  You can bet your bottom dollar that I will get every question right this time!  It's a wake up call to get my head screwed on straight...that's for sure.  This next week will be our last week of eight hour days.  Next weekend the reactor is shut down and that is when they crack the whip.

I was able to finish ABCD by La D Da and work a little bit on Ah Tis Spring by Notforgotten Farm.

Hmmmm....I tried to put two pictures up in this spot but I got a message from Google saying I have reached my 1GB limit for loading pictures to my blog.  I've never heard any of you comment about this.  Has anyone else received this message?  Do we really need to pay to upload pictures on here after reaching a total of 1GB?  I can't imagine having a stitchy blog without pictures....HELP!!!!

I'm so disappointed that I can't put those pictures here but you can go HERE to see them if you want.  You might have to scroll down a bit to see one of them but they are both there.  Feel free to browse through all of the pictures you want.  Masterchief and I have been putting them up there for years.

Hope you all have a great week.
