The family room has my half empty boxes strewn about – I’m looking for 1) candle warmer since son has decided he needs it; 2) winter coats; 3) rest of knitting patterns; 4) odds and ends of paper work that need filing or tossing; 5) some knitting patterns that are neatly categorized (no, really, they are! in folders arranged by item type – amazing!); 6) some pics to go on bedroom wall.
Why am I blogging instead? because today is blahhh. Nothing is wrong, everything is moving forward even just kinda blahhhhh.
New hire orientation was yesterday, I’ll be starting on Monday it looks like. Could have used a couple more weeks to get some things sorted out but hey, can’t be upset about only being out of work two weeks! It’s a temp to hire position and will remain temp for up to 6 months which is a long time but still, it beats unemployment. I was blessed enough to find a job within the same field even.
I’ve been knitting a fair bit on Mom’s blue scarf (scarf for ally by Sumarai Patterns) . It’s the first lace project I’ve done for a while and is moving along quickly. There’s about 16″ done so far.
I’ve been mentally reviewing the knitting skills that I want to expand in -09 and I’m a bit behind!
Son has decided to do home school again this year. For once, I’m not entirely thrilled about it. He is very self directed so far as studying/learning goes but I really feel that he needs a socialization push. I’m not big on the typical H.S. social scene but he really does need more than he’s allowing himself right now. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have friends, he certainly does. They’re older (early 20’s) have jobs or are in college, which is fine. But… there are a few things that come from having a variety of experiences with different people. So…. figuring this one out.
Oh, and I have a couple apt’s with school counselors myself 😀
Again, nothing is wrong. Moving forward appropriately. Just kinda blah today.
minor update – consolidated boxes, disposed of no longer needed paperwork and assorted stuff, have a pot of chili simmering on the stove, laundry in the washer…. not bad for the blah’s. Oh… and the most important thing – I found the two sets of Knit Pick’s Options needles that were still packed. *insert huge smile here*
If I seem over enthusiastic about Knit Picks in general, it’s not for lack of awareness there are other yarn/needle/acessory companies out there. It’s that I appreciate the quality they offer for pretty economical prices. I’m not at the stage yet where I can self-justify spending over $200 on one project. Someday that may be realistic for my skill level and budget – should the two ever become aquainted, of course.
