It’s sad isnt’ it? I’ve been a finishing machine, but not a blogging one! And on top of FO’s, I’ve got NEWS!!
News first?? The biggest, bestest news – D#1 got a JOB. That’s right – she graduated from grad school in May, worked all through the summer while interviewing and was getting a bit freaked by the harsh job market. She had gotten herself set up with a waitressing/bartending job when one of her interviews called with an offer! Anyway, this week was her first week as a professional – she even has a desk plaque! She has been conferring with JOHNFALCONE over which health care plan to choose etc. Another great thing about her job?? It entails a good bit of traveling and that will have her in this area for extended periods of time!
Other good news in no particular order
- we had very little damage either to our house or the shop from Hurricane Irene – just one tree down which was in the furthest spot in our yard at that.
- my broken wing is feeling a bit better – Mr. Clean was great, but I have been doing this modified yoga move. No where near as sexy, but I do believe it is helping even more.
- back to the shop — it is fantastic and doing really well! Lots of great yarns coming in and of course the customers are the best!
- I have discovered a
terriblewonderful thing – Jezebel’s Worth It column. I have been buying just about everything they said – and am going broke while agreeing that everything is as great as they say!
