Still Alive!! Really!!!!!!

I am still alive and breathing,  I know it has been way too long.  A lot has been happening and I have been trying too keep busy.  

Where do I start, well last post was October and it was a trying month.  Ended up in the hospital due to a very fast heart rate and other multiple issues.  Had a stress test and failed and then they did a heart cath in which I passed with flying colors!!!!!   After a echocardiogram and wearing an event monitor for a week, they have diagnosed me with SVT(superventricular tachycardia) which is now being controlled with heart medication.  So now I am good to go.  Have been slowly increasing my exercise and working up to a good cardio workout.  It has been a challenge to say the least.

Moving on, I have been working on my part-time job, Pampered Chef.  It has been a very fun and great way to do what I love to do, cook.  I love to cook for people and watch their faces as they try new ways to make dinners, appetizers and desserts much easier on their busy lives.  It has been a great way to meet new people too!  The long range goal is to make extra money on the side to get out of debt faster(just paying for the oil in winter is a HUGE help).

And to the other fun in my life,  YARN!!!!!!  I must say that this is my best way to de-stress and relax.  The feeling of the yarn in my hands and creating a beautiful piece of clothing or accessory is amazing.
I have been working on finishing projects and looking at what I want to start for the new year.  I want to challenge myself more this year.   I really want to make socks!!!!  I have got the beginning down and then I stop, the heel scares me and I know that once I do it and do it again I will be fine.  Just got to dig in and not give up.  

Enough said today, I will be updating more than I have been.  I pray you have a blessed and great day!

This is Mr. Schnitzel, he loves to play and read the paper.  He loves having is picture taken too.  More to come on him soon.
