Ugh. It feels like I never leave this place.... One of my coworkers was sick yesterday, and she usually works the 6-10 pm reference shift. I agreed to cover for her if she would work this Sunday night from 6-10 for me -- which is cool and all, but it meant that I was here from 8 am until 10 pm yesterday. I did run home for about an hour to eat dinner, but other than that I was here. Blah. (And goodness knows, I COULD have stitched.....in 4 hours I had ONE piddly reference question. Sheesh.)
I did a naughty thing yesterday, too. I should know better than to browse around on eBay at "that time of the month", but I just couldn't resist....and I ended up bidding on and winning some of those DMC "Stitch-A-Teddy" bears. You know, the little plushies with the Aida bibs you can personalize? I think they are too cute, and since I have lots of friends (and family, for that matter!) that are at that child-bearing stage of life, it seemed like a good thing to have in the stash box for quick gifts. Anyway, the lot I bid on was 4 of the bears plus 2 of the larger, blanket-like "Comfort Bears." I got them for less than $20, so it wasn't a huge expense, but I had been doing so well in my attempt to stay "on the wagon".... *sigh* Plus, my LNS called earlier this week, and one of my framing orders is ready. It was a piece I gave to my mom and she brought it back out here for framing - she even paid in advance, so I have no excuse to part with ANY $$$ when I go to pick up the piece tomorrow. The question is, can I be strong and resist the siren song of the 50%-off bins and end cuts of pretty fabric?!?!?!?!? Ack.
But there was a bright spot in my day yesterday...mail!! Thank you, Dani, for the lovely fob!! (Now I have to ask, how do you keep such a pretty thing from catching the eye of a playful kitty??)
