2 Weeks In

I can't believe we are already 2 weeks into 2012!  It seems all I have been doing is working, working and well, more work.

Lily has been doing just great!  She had a check up on the 3rd and everything is good.  Her puncture wound is still not healed all the way ( I guess the chemo slows healing) but it's getting there.  Now that all the chemo and antibiotics are pretty much out of her system she is much more playful and energetic.  She is even cutting through the tiled kitchen floor to get to the backdoor rather than going the long way through the living room.  And she has been chewing her rawhides!  Sometimes it's the little things that make you smile!

We are looking forward to her 10th birthday on the 26th.  I told her we would make a meatloaf for her special day..................she is waiting with anticipation.

In between all the working I've been doing, I have managed to work on some of my New Year's goals.  I have worked out more these past 2 weeks but didn't get any walking time in this week as The Husband was out of town and I was too tired to motivate myself in the evening(sometimes a partner helps). 

I have managed to reduce my stash by a few yards by sending some cute dog fabric over to Dachsies with Moxie who is making a quilt for Sandra at KissABulls who lost 5 of her precious dogs in a house fire.  I am also working on another sewing project that I do not have pictures of yet but have used up about 5 1/4yds on it.  It is an ongoing project so should use up a lot more. And believe me there is plenty more to use up!

I have not reduced my credit card debt by any more than my monthly payment so far.  But I also have not added to it, so that is a good thing.

I still have not made the perfect pair of pants.

It's time for me to go park my fanny in my recliner and enjoy what is left of the NFL season.  My picks for the super bowl match up this year......Green Bay and Denver.......a girl can dream!


  1. So pleased to read that Lily is doing so well:) What a wonderful way to start 2012! Will be looking forward to her birthday post. Sounds like you're also doing very well with your resolutions:)

  2. The fabrics for the quilt are fabulous! Already cut it up for the quilt!

  3. Howdy All, we are so happy to see a photo of sweet Lily. Glad to hear she is feeling well. Sounds like your new years resolutions are going along fine. Mum wants to know, can anyone ever get the perfect pair of pants??? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  4. Lily! You are So beautiful!! And mom is glad you were able to send some fabric to the Doxies!!

  5. Miss Lily! You will be so happy to get that meatloaf!


  6. Yay, Miss Lily. We are rooting for you. We're so happy that you're doing well, trying new things, and chewing your rawhides. From what I understand, chemo slows almost everything in the body... so that's probably why the wound is slow to heal.

    We're thinking of you!
