Well I'm happy to say we've moved into a house finally. We're renting it for 6 months in North Hollywood, CA. It's basically someone's attic he converted to a private apartment to use while he was back from the navy. Now that he's retired he rents it out. It feels so good to be settled after being in hotel rooms and his moms house for over 6 weeks. It was very stressful as well because after we arrived we kindve kicked my dmil out of her house because her boyfriend doesn't get along with us. Long story but they just decided to get a hotel while we found a place to live. We had a house lined up but it fell through at the last minute because we decided we simply couldn't afford it until I found a job. I've applied to several schools as a receptionist and got my first call back yesterday. I have to go Monday to take some proficiency tests and typing tests and we'll go from there. It's about half an hour from my house so its a little far but I'll judge on if I'm willing to make that drive after I go up for the tests.
Our house we got is small but cute. We have 2 magicians as our downstairs neighbors but we haven't met them yet. I'm only bummed because we can't get a dog. So I'm glad it was only 6 months and I'm really hoping we can buy a house after this. It came fully furnished too which is nice but it means we have to pay storage.
My mom is coming down for Christmas and I'll have my first Christmas off in 6 years! I'm excited about that. Our tree was in the front of the storage unit too which is great but our decorations are in the back so I'll have to buy more.
My stitching has gotten better now that we're settled. I finished the color on paradise that I started in the car. I'll show it next post. But I did work on something else. Ready?
Yay Halloween! This is the green panel and the left half of the design. I'm starting to get into the massive amounts of black. But this is what I finished in 3 days while at dmils house. It's fun to be stitching something simpler and different. I doubt I'll get it done before Halloween but I'm not putting a time limit on this one :). Hopefully my next post will be the other two panels finish finished. I worked on some of the mounting before we moved so I just have to assemble and hand them. Maybe later today. Thanks for stopping by I'll see you at the end of the month!
