Things I SHOULD have said....

Well maybe you’d like it better if I sat around farting or playing fart noises on my computer and analyzed every unit of electricity that runs thru this building, all in the name of productivity?

Clearly you’re under pressure, and I happen to be the lucky idiot that answered the phone.

I’m sorry that YOU screwed up big time on one of your jobs, but trying to blame it on me won’t fix it.

It must really suck to have to get up at a normal time in order to run your company, for a change.

Oh, so this is what 8 a.m. looks like!

Merry Day After Christmas

I meant to post before Christmas, but the new Beta Blogger didn't want to let me so now that the rush is over, Merry Christmas! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with family and friends.
I've been knitting. But not a lot. I DID manage to finish my mom's shawl out of the Karabella New Magic. I need to weave and block, and since she's out of town till next week, I'm technically not late for the holidays. It feels good to have that finished and I might even cast on for my shawl while the mood is striking me. I have been knitting casually on a sock for my SO, but have happily ignored his sweater during the holiday rush. I'll be up north for a few days for New Years and that will allow some time to catch up on some lagging projects, including the Peacock Shawl.
I'm exhausted today and am truly looking forward to going home at a decent time today and sleeping!! Have a great day!

Happy December to all!!

Yep, blew right past my blogiversary and am smack dab into December. How did that happen?

Well, I've been busy. I've been sick. I've been knitting. And I've been working. A lot. And I don't think it's slowing down at all. I don't have any pictures to show for any of it. I'm sure you're grateful for no pictures of the Me Sick part of the above, but maybe knitting pictures would be nice. I have been knitting though. I finished the first sock of SO's second pair. I have almost completed the second sleeve of SO's first sweater. Yep it's still boring, but I'm plugging along. I'm about 1/2 way thru my mom's shawl. This was after discovering that almost all the way thru the second ball of a 3-ball shawl, I was doing it wrong. Yikes! At least I know it's right now, so I'm trying to quickly make my way thru it, in time for Christmas. I made 1 glove for myself from the One Skein book and cast on for the second, but haven't touched it in days. Christmas shopping just doesn't make time for knitting, but I'm trying to fit it all in.

This week are the last classes for aerobics till January, and let me tell you I'm so happy to be hanging up my weights for a few weeks. I missed a week of classes when I was down with the flu, and let me tell you, last week's class about killed me. I'm still sore. I hope to make it thru tonight without totally wrecking my body, and maybe I'll be able to walk again soon without flinching. All in the name of good health right?

I went out with my friends to HYAW for their Knitter's Night Out. If you haven't checked it out, you need to. It's a small group, but it's so much fun. We went out for dinner and drinks after, and were able to knit in the smoke-free environment. Very enjoyable! That was the ONLY knitting I really did all weekend though, the rest of the time was spent cleaning and shopping.

Sheesh this holiday is flying up fast. I hope everyone else is finding a way to enjoy it, I'm hoping just to live thru it.
