So far this week....

I haven't done much sewing since Sunday. Monday, I went to my small group Guild meeting. Well, I think this was an off week - our official meeting isn't until the fourth Monday of the month, but a group of us still get together on every Monday when we don't have a Guild meeting. I showed the ladies how to make an Easy Striped Table Runner using a pattern that is free online. It was neat seeing what some of the other ladies had picked up to use.

I also found out that I won't be going to Florida for Thanksgiving this year because my aunt isn't going. I was a little hesitant about making the 17 hour drive in a car that I won't get until Thursday night and taking the dogs with me since it would be way too expensive to board them for the week and the holiday. I have decided that I am still going to take Monday through Wednesday off of work and I will spend the time working on my projects and cleaning the house up a bit. And possibly practicing some free motion quilting. And probably driving a bit in the new car! :D

And - the biggest news of all!!! The insurance adjuster stopped by the condo on her way home and dropped off the settlement check for the car! I now have the check and need to deposit it to my account today. And I will be going to the dealership and getting the car Thursday night!

I don't know when the last Weight Watchers update I gave was, but I was doing pretty good this week with the weight dropping. On Sunday, I was showing a total loss of 36 pounds, but I guess that I had eaten a little too much garbage over the weekend and it dropped to just over 35 pounds on weigh in day. But that is still good and I will take it! I have less than 20 pounds left to lose! And Sunday, I finally broke down and bought underwear that fits. It's amazing how clothes look so much better when there isn't a bunch of extra fabric hanging around in the rear area!

OK, time to get ready for work.
