Of coarse they had all kinds of food there like they always do...but hey I can't have all that great food..this deserves another whaaaa...there was even a hugh chocolate bunny...but I was a good girl and didn't even break a piece off. I know I can't have chocolate...this deserves another whaaaa...why me??? Chocolate...chocolate....I was going to leave my meter home but didn't...I am now thinking I should have left it behind and ate the WHOLE chocolate bunny. The WHOLE thing.....
The other thing is last year I took Nina's class for a necklace which I worked on off, and on this year. The closer to Hector the more furiuos I was to get it done. I wanted to wear it today. Welllll... guess what happened....??? I decided to make my necklace longer so the design would go more around my neck...and I ran out of the thread that came in the kit. Well....I thought, Nina always used silver DMC thread so I bought a spool of silver so I could continue the necklace. As I was working along humming merrily...I was starting to think...hmmm why is this side so much firmer and crisper than the other side. I was thinking I must have change my tension or something. Imagine my dismay when yesterday I really ...really looked at my necklace and noticed that the silver coloring didn't match....why was that???? I was using two different kinds of silver thread...so I have to take all my necklace apart to get the beads back and start the necklace all over again. I showed the necklace to a couple people today and they said...it was really okay and they said they would take it if I wanted to give it away. To me, the necklace is not okay...to look at it would keep bugging me for I know it doesn't match ...so I will be clipping away at it. Whaaaaa again!!! Loudly. Take a look at my picture...I even called my picture that I just scanned Nina's Goofed Up Necklace. Whaaaa!! As you can tell...the necklace is not blocked.

Hop...hop...hop...the bunny goes.
Anyhoo....I hope everybody had a nice Easter. I had three of my children here. My youngest ate on the run just about. My one daughter had to work at Wally World. I really do wish that all businesses were closed on ALL holidays. HOw much money do these businesses really make by staying open. I think it would be better if they were closed so people can spend time with their familes for good family values. I at but felt I really couldn't enjoy the food since I had to watch what I was putting on my plate. What a bummer that is!!! I also didn't do my glucose test before and two hours after I ate either. Why bother even though I was careful I am sure it was out of wack so I didn't bother.
The bad thing that happen to me was I really cut my left index finger bad. It bled and bled. I do take aspirin so I hopefully I don't die at a young age since that seems to run in the family on my Dad's side. Anyhow...it is a deep cut that I received from trying to open a can of vegtables that did cut right with the can opener. I was trying to decide if I wanted to go to the emergency room to have stitches in it...but I don't want to spend the money doing that....I am going to just see what happens with my finger in the meanwhile. It is pretty sore and I put big bandaid on it.
Anyhoo...since I am left handed I think that I am not going to be able to tat or stitch for at least a couple of days. Can you all say...."Celtic is going to be soooo bored!!!!" I can assure you she will be.
Now I am going to download a some pictures of my family that I took. And crash...I am so brain dead...."la...la...la...."this is my brain on zero working circuit.
