Finished Project

I finished the tiger counted cross-stitch project I have been working on for the past month.  The outlining took most of today, which kind of annoyed me.  I had hoped to finish it sooner, so I could move on to something else.  But it turned out very well.  I give big kudos to my brother.  He gave me the kit for my birthday last year.  He was over earlier today helping around the house, but I did not finish the project before Dad took him home.  I will be able to show him the finished (and framed) product next time I see him, though.

My aunt went and spoke to my grandparents Friday.  To be more accurate, she spoke to my grandfather.  My grandmother was present, but there is never a guarantee that she will remember the conversation.  In fact, Mom talked to them earlier today, and Grandma remembered that my aunt came over, but did not remember what they talked about.  Anyway, the conversation between my aunt and my grandparents did not turn into the screaming match that we had feared.  My grandparents listened quietly.  What will come of this remains to be seen, but it is a good start.

I have a history midterm in the morning.  I intend to get a few hours of sleep before waking up to study a bit before the test.  My Spanish test finally came back Friday.  I got a 98 percent.  All goes well.  I have another lab practical in Geology this coming Thursday, a major paper due in my Criminology class on Friday, and a midterm in that class next Monday.  Busy week.  Not a good week to start another major cross-stitch project.  My next project will be considerably smaller.
