February Goals

Gosh I can't believe it, I forgot to share with you my February goals! So without further ado, here they are :

January Recap :
Stitch an Ornament - Actually did two!
Stitch a freebie - one of my ornaments was a freebie!
Finish Moon Dragon - yes!
Finish a Page on Noah's Sub - not quite... almost!

February Goals :
Stitch an Ornament
Stitch a freebie
Finish a Page on Noah's Sub (finally????)
Finish current page on The Castle
Work a little on Tour Des Marques

I finally finished the water on the page of Noah's Sub I've been working on! I'm now filling in the critters. I now have a walrus and a few bunnies!

As I've mentioned in the past I've been suffering from migraines quite a bit lately (actually since the beginning of January). Today I finally had to take a sick day because of them. As any migraine sufferer knows it gets frustrating when you start getting them day after day!

I did get rid of one stress factor in my life... unfortunately not my job LOL! We have to win the lotto first! I can't really talk about what I got rid of out of my life until it becomes common knowledge amongst the people involved. It was something I've been thinking about for some months now, as my close friends know I've been spreading myself wayyy too thin. Finally I'll be home a little more and be able to put more energy/focus into areas of my life I've been neglecting.
And here's a picture of Cuddles, we see a lot of Hunter but not so much of Cuddles the Gimpy Grey Beast.

Cuddles looks comfy. :-)

Congrats on getting rid of a stress factor. I think most of us tend to stretch ourselves too thin... we need to take more 'down' time to renew ourselves. :-)

Cuddles is so cute! Good luck with getting rid of one stress factor. :)

Your goals seem very reasonable. Sorry about your migraine. Cute pic of Cuddles.

I'm glad you saw the need to destress and took some action Dani! I've had to do the same thing at various points in my life and gained so much peace of mind and renewal from my time away from the extra activities.

Cuddles looks like he is very comfortable on his soft bed. Sorry you are having such problems with your migranes. I hope they get better soon, reducing your stress level should help. It is easy to do to much because you feel you should. However, you need to take care of yourself as well otherwise everything else gets out of wack and nothing seems to work right. Looking forward to seeing more of Noah's Sub,

Hope you're feeling better. And I hope that taking out one stress factor in your life will help.

Cuddles is sooo cute. I am a migrane sufferer so I can totally sympathize with you. I had that monthlong headache from December 25 until around January 25. I hope your headache disappears very soon!!!!

Great updates on your stitching pieces Dani. I always love to see how everyones projects are developing.
Cuddles is certainly a sweetie. Cats are such a joy.
Now that you have taken action against your stress I hope your migraines will become much more infrequent.
Hopeyou are feeling better today and wish you a good weekend.

What a cute kitty! Petting cats is supposed to relieve stress, so I hope he's part of your stress relief program. I hope you are feeling better.
