Roller Coaster Ride

Life for the past few weeks has been a one vicious roller coaster ride. I'm telling you the Aerosmith Roller Coaster at Disney World looks like child's play. I am going to give you some high and low lights.

Scott got laid off a week ago. He has been with the same company for over 15 years. He has worked his way up from a laborer to a foreman in that time, been through a change in ownership and a few name changes. The construction industry is so bad right now that will don't know if he will be able to go back to JVC. The good of this is due to our many WONDERFUL friends he was recommended to another company as a foreman doing commercial framing. He did a phone interview on Tuesday and received a job offer. We are so lucky!!! We are waiting to hear when he will start the new job.

I have been not feeling well for a few days. I am taking a nasty prescription that has horrid side effects. I have had hangovers feel better than this, good thing I only twice a day. I have been working on the swaps I signed up for, I have 4 partners to make stuff for in the next 12 days. I have been working on a scrap swap, we send eachother some scraps, make something with them and send the finished item back. I have 3 partners in this swap. It has been great fun to work with other people's fabric. The hard part is I made a GREAT purse and I don't want to send it back. I e-mailed my partner and she has more scraps!!! She is going to send me some so I can make me a purse too. I am also working on a flirty holiday hostess apron, so cute!

Scott has the Northern California HHR Club's Monterey Run this Saturday and is trying to figure out if he can go or not. There will be close to 50 HHR's cruising from Gilroy to Monterey Saturday morning.
