Coffee Date and Friday's Letters

Yay! I love Fridays, I get paid, and sign my time card for next week! Even though I don't get weekends off its still a good feeling hitting Friday, and I have nothing stopping me from my blog today :) that makes today even better!

Okay, so even though I can't drink warm/hot coffee, and I work too much to make it somewhere for frappe, we can still pretend we're having coffee ;)

If we were having coffee today I would tell you how thankful I am for overtime! Yes it drains all my energy, but its good money, and I could never turn it down. If it weren't for my job and my long hours, I never would of been able to continue funding my education. 

If we were having coffee today I would also tell you how happy I am that I was able to spend so much time with my family while they visited :) I don't have many pictures but once I get ahold of some I plan on writing a post just on their visit :)

If we were having coffee today I'd apology for missing last week's coffee date, and explain my absence was due to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding. I would also tell you, unless its my baby sister, I'm retiring from weddings. One awful  experience with a jerky groomsmen is enough for me. NEVER AGAIN, will I be a bridesmaid!

If we were having coffee today, I would also tell you how handsome Vincenso looked at the wedding. He looked so stunning, it was absolutely worth it. My boyfriend is a keeper, and I can't believe he went all out for a wedding where I couldn't even hang out with him through most of it! I'm such a lucky girl :]

If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that I've been going through a long process of emails, and meetings, and phone calls to try and transfer to Heidelberg University, and in the next week I really need to either push them to let me finish paperwork, or give in and stay at Tiffin University. It has been a very stressful  process, and as much as I hope everything works out and I can transfer, I'm really just looking forwarded to knowing whats going on, and where I will be going to school when I start classes in a month. 


Dear Readers-  I apologize for my lack of quick responses to comments. That is on my list of to-dos for this evening and tomorrow morning. Dear Vince- Thank you for always being here for me. It means the world to me that I can always count on you. I love you very much. Dear Heidelberg- please take me, and please make my life easier by just giving me an answer about my course of action. I'd appreciate it. Dear Government- I'm in college, I'm poor, why do you insist on taking so much of my hard earned cash for your taxes when I need every penny I get? Dear McDonald's- can you please just sponsor me with a lifestyle supply of frappes? I love them but I'm too poor at this point to spend money on them. You should let me advertise for you so I can get them for free :] Dear God- Please create a longer day, so that I may work crazy long hours, and still have time to get enough sleep. I think we could all benefit from a few more hours during the day to work with. Dear Crew Members- I don't enjoy yelling at you. I don't want to get you in trouble. I don't think its fun. Please stop breaking all the safety rules and stealing hours of pay that you didn't earn. I'd really prefer if we could have a day where I don't have to yell at you guys for breaking all the rules. I promise we can get along if you all behave. Dear Work- Thank you for the 74.6 hour work week. I will appreciate the exchange of money for my lack of sleep next Friday when I get a beautiful overtime paycheck. Dear Crochet- I miss you dearly.

WIP WEDNESDAY- bikini top finish :)

Hey guys! I know I mentioned last Wednesday that I didn't have much time due to the family visiting. However, I haven't had much luck finding time to work on things this week either. I only have two more days in this weeks pay period, and I'm hoping to hit at least 70 hours before time cards are sent in, at this point I have 52.5. Considering we're already going in an hour earlier tomorrow, I think I'm gonna make it :) All work things aside, I did manage to finish the bikini top from last week :) it fits even better then the original blue one I modeled it after. I think I have an extra stitch in the first row or something, but I followed the stitching well, and yet it fits much better. So I'm pleased. Eventually I will have all the sizing things down and I could put different sizes in the store :)

WIP Wednesday

Hey guys! It's WIP WEDNESDAY and I haven't had much time to work as usual. I hate the lack of free time during the summer. Except I love that my lack of free time lately has been due to my lovely family coming to visit! I'm so happy they were able to make it home :) Yesterday was sadly our last day with them and we visited Amish country. On the way there I took advantage of the free time and took some car sick medicine and climbed to the very back of the car and set to work on a bikini top :)

So now I have the base of a fun patterned bikini in cotton already made and just waiting on straps :) hopefully I get a chance to make a couple straps quick this next week.
