Last September, I blogged that I was starting a new cross-stitch project, well, I didn't get very far on it as I messed up and couldn't un-pick it. I got it out last week and started looking at it, and decided I wanted to try again with it. The kit was from Dimensions and I wanted to do it in DMC floss, so I wrote them and asked for the colors in DMC. So, I went out and bought all the floss that I needed, and more Aida cloth in 18 count. It is supposed to be done in Ivory, but no one had Ivory, so I got Ecru instead. I haven't yet started it, but I think it should like nice when it's done.

I have been trying to lose weight for some time, and nothing seemed to work. Finally, I decided to quit drinking soda pop, and coffee(much to the disappointment of my husband), and started taking a fitness class at the same place I take Tai Chi lessons. I have finally lost about 3 pounds. YEAH!!!

OH, by the way, my toe is NOT BROKEN, it just really, really hurts like you know what, and is still bruised good!!

I was in my fitness class last night and walked right into a weight that we use, and I think I broke my little toe. It's turning a nice shade of Black, Blue, and Purple!!!

Yes, we took advantage of this program! We had a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with just over 146,000 miles on it, and it needed about $2,000 dollars worth of work that we just did not have the money for. So, after about 2 months worth of research by my husband, we went on Saturday and looked at cars,( of course with this program you have to buy a NEW CAR.) Anyway, we went to a KIA dealer in the area and bought a 2009 KIA OPTIMA. We qualified because the van only got a combined mileage of 18, and with the Optima, we got a $2,500 rebate plus it qualified for the $3,500 thing from the government. So we got a very good deal, and cheaper in the long run for us. We just love our NEW CAR! This is the FIRST NEW CAR that either one of us has ever had in our lives.
