Hello my sister fabbies! It seems like I have been away from here. Really I haven’t been! I have been popping in and checking out things. I am missing some of the conversation we used to have. WHat happened to those? I am also missing some of the crazy and fun questions. Did we ask them all? Or have we gotten shy and afraid of blogging? If you‘re new to blogging just do a simple hello blog. It doesn’t have to be long.
While I enjoy looking at all the wares to be bought I really enjoy the stories of everyday life more. Where are those?
Well I have been busy walking, biking, cooking, painting, raking the never ending GREEN leaves, feeding the neighbor cat that has decided to live on my porch, reading, hand writing letters and cards to friends,checking out the area, and shopping.
I am doing great and so is my family.

What do you got going on and How are you doing?

    • Hi Vicki. I’m glad you are doing well. I hope you‘re able to be in touch with your girls often - I know you are close with them. Doesn’t one of the girls live nearby?

      Right now I’ve just finished 45 minutes on my treadmill, I’m checking e-mail and Mr. Murphy has decided that I should give up my chair, allow him to curl up on it and I should also pet him. I oblige. I love my cat.

      I’ll jump off and call my mom in a few minutes - we chat for an hour every week on wednesday mornings. She’s 81 and I know that some day these coversations will come to an end so I’m grabbing all the time I can right now.

      Later I’ll do some paperwork, a little cleaning, and I’ll order supplies for the holidays. Should be a quiet day.

      Have a great day!

    • I have to make a run to Wal-mart, then pick up leftover Halloween candles. Then back to the kitchen to keep making candles for the upcoming craft shows.

    • Today I’m feeling kind of ho hum, not sure why though.
      I haven’t been on a jog in at least three days. In all my attempts to establish healthy habits I have noticed that the dark circles under my eyes are fading.

      My children are well and happy with their individual successes.

    • Hi Vikki,

      Unfortunately I’m home with my sick daughter. Since she has the flu, looks like I’ll be home the next few days. She seems to be doing ok, and I am too!
      I’m back in the gym regularly, and have cut down on my sodium intake and just happy to be doing me again!

    • I’m actually home from work with a bit of a fever and a cough today. I’d be doing some napping but there is a bit of heavy construction going on outdoors, making it difficult to rest. Otherwise, I’m making some mental plans for some new fabric designs. One is a fat birdie design that I’ll cut up into the individual birds and use on handmade mobiles. (that I’ll ask my husband to help me fabricate!)

      Another fabric design is for one of my brides that I’d created some silk screened wedding invites for. I’m designing fabric similar to her invites! I can’t help but be excited about that project. So, not feeling my best but still creating things in my head!

    • Hi Vikki,

      Good to have you back on the board.  You certainly have been keeping busy.  Good Stuff!  I have started back at the gym and trying to be consistent.  (I will be joining the Fab 40 sparkle group also - as soon as I figure out how)  The whole get-fit momentum on this board has become contagious.  

      btw - At what point does the neighbour’s cat become your cat? happy  Keep good.

      Venus.

    • I just got done with all of my 2nd books illustrations and submitted my 2nd manuscript to my editor to start the editing process.  So, I am really excited as I work toward getting my 1st children’s book released.  Yes, I know that’s all I seem to talk about on here, but I AM SO EXCITED! I have made so many changes in my life over the past couple of years and I am really making head-way toward my vision.  I surprised myself by how I kept diving through the designs, even with some kind of a flu I had all last week.  

      I felt miserable.  

      I took a week off from working out at the gym, for two reasons, one is because I felt sick all over and second is because I just completed the chicago marathon a few weeks ago and needed the rest.  So, today, I got back into the gym.  It felt good afterwards, but was really, really tough running the 3 miles.  I am glad I am back at it though.

      Finally, I am helping my daughter out with administrative tasks, like designing web-fill-in-forms that send to email and looking up her credentials so she can fill out grad applications.  She is so busy with college classes, philanthropy and her two positions (PR and Resolution Committee), so I help out where I can.  She is applying for grad schools, summer internship and a part-time job *for right now*.  And since I’m hangning around a lot and am available, I do what I can to help ease the stress.

      • I am excited about my daughters decision to go to grad school, we’ll see what happens.

      That’s about it in a nutshell for today.
      Thanks for asking!
      Kim

    • Thx everyone for the updates! Fran that’s prolly why you are getting extra work so they don’t have to hire yet still retain existing people. Melissa anytime you feel unloading or venting you do it. Venus just go to sparkpeople.com and create a profile, then look dot   Fabbers against flab group and join.      Kim it sounds like you have been really busy. Gotta love those kids tho!
      I am off to bed as soon as the Piston game is done.....have ablissful night;)

    • Hi Atomic!
      Too bad about your RLS. I dont know tooo much about it or how to treat it but I hope you are doing better soon. Good luck in school.
      I think I need to go look at the blog roll to see if you posted. I hope your hubz is safe while out driving and your kiddies are doing better.
