merbear74 must be popular – she keeps getting awards and stuff and then nominating me.  I’m flattered, I really am.  And I’m appreciative of the fodder to write about.  Particularly today.

So here’s the regular updates from me…

Josh said the interview went well.  He’s supposed to hear something today.  The woman he met with said she had several positions she was considering him for, so that’s encouraging.  We didn’t have sex last night anyway, just to be safe.  It was a very pleasant and very quiet evening.

I’ve decided to frog the Hanne vest.  I don’t love it and I’d rather use the yarn for a sweater.  Might do that tonight.  Josh’s first slipper is almost done.

I bought myself a pair of bright purple Birkenstocks yesterday with some of my tax money.  I can’t wait until they get here.  Of course it’s supposed to snow really bad this week so I’m not sure when I’ll be able to wear them.  I used the rest of the money to pay medical bills.  I didn’t have quite enough to pay everything, but I made a huge dent in it all.  Just waiting for my state refund now to pay the rest.

It’s Tuesday and I’m trying to be ok with that.  The mood is not bad.  Josh is apparently in the dark room today because he’s been harassing me almost non-stop since I got to work.  I’m trying to be ok with that, too.  He doesn’t often get an opportunity to talk whenever anymore and I’m sure he’s enjoying it.  And it’s not like I’ve really started to get involved in anything yet.

That pic is several years old, but about the only thing that’s changed is the color of my hair – it’s more blonde now.

11 Random Facts

  1. I’ve been wearing contacts since I was 12 years old.  I currently wear the kind you leave in day and night for a month.  I’m blind as a bat without them.
  2. I function best on 8 hours of sleep but I can get by with as little as 2.  You don’t really want to be around me when I’ve only had 2 hours sleep though.
  3. I’ve been at the same place of employment for 12 years.
  4. Chocolate milk is an acceptable dessert for me.
  5. I learned to knit and crochet when I was 8.  I stuck with the crochet but didn’t knit again until I was in my 20s.  I do both fairly well now.
  6. The job I have now is as close to a “dream job” as I think I could get.
  7. I still don’t see enough of a benefit to having a tablet that I’d be willing to pay for one on my own.  Because of what I do for my job, they’ve provided me with an iPad.  No way in hell I’d buy one for myself.
  8. I get quite cranky when my routines get upset.
  9. In addition to knitting and crocheting, I also do beadwork, make jewelry, cross stitch, do black work, and sometimes play with Fimo.
  10. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons.
  11. I have size 11 wide feet.  Finding shoes for me is a challenge.  The boots I’m wearing today are actually dude boots.  But they fit.
