You Are 62% Evil

You are very evil. And you're too evil to care.
Those who love you probably also fear you. A lot.

Ah the weekend

It came and made me happy, so happy. I've been doing lots of laundry and otherwise not much more in the way of housework. I've rested and hung with the family and just had an overall relaxing weekend. MUCH needed. I'm now working on the continuation of the desk excavation and feeling much, much better and refreshed.

I've got nothin in the way of yarn news, other than a tiny bit of work on the purse handle, in spite of keeping it with me at all times just in case. I have been really absorbed in a new book series I borrowed from my dad, by George R. R. Martin. The Series is called A Song of Ice and Fire and I've finished the first book-A Game of Thrones and am into the second-A Clash of Kings. I haven't wanted to put them down. It's so good to be in the middle of a good book and realize that there are MORE after it.

What a switch.

So today as I was leaving work and heading into traffic my sister called. The older of my two younger sisters, the one who had this very busy great job and worked overtime and did the whole commute thing. She would take pity on me and talk to me even when she was busy and I was a sahm and yearning, well actually grasping for any shred of adult conversation I could get. She was there when I needed her and listened when she didn't quite get this crazy mom person her sister had turned into. Fast forward 5 or so years.

Now I get the phone calls. The phone calls where she says Now I totally understand why you went so crazy then. Now I get it. In a weird way this warmed my heart and made me feel good and loved my sister for going through it too.

Today I was the one doing the traffic just getting out of work craziness and she was the sahm (who does work for her and her husband's business out of the home) and the role reversal was just really unbelievable. I've always been the get married have kids type-even if I did think differently about this than my family did lol. She was the driven go to school and move and get a great job and do well at it type. Isn't it wild to see us grow up?

The best part of having siblings is learning from each others' experiences and being able to be blunt and honest and all of that while learning from those experiences. It's also really great to watch each other go through those same things and be amazed at our own grown-upness. Who would've thought way back when when we were fighting over the tv and the phone and just about anything else-no matter how petty-that came to mind.

He loves the fish. I love his expression. This kid is too cool, loves school, and I am so proud of him. Posted by Picasa

New job=still no time=crazier than ever

The past two days I've brought knitting along to work. Small knitting, the handle for my grandma's bag. People, I started this job last week and all I needed to do to finish it was sew on the pocket and knit the handle. The pocket is still not sewn on and I am 3 rows into the handle. THREE ROWS. So I've brought it along, thinking I could knit on my break or...SOMETHING. I've got nothing people. Nothing at all. No time at work, no time at home and someone please get me a driver so I can knit on the way to and from work, okay?

Cute note of the day: My three year old still sleeps with his little butt in the air, just like when he was a baby. Awwwwww.

New job=no time

Holy schmoly! So I am loving the new job, doing fairly well at it but oh my tons and tons and tons of information to absorb. Wowza. I get home and have about 3 or 4 hours to spend time with the kiddos, do dinner, catch up laundry, and any other of the millions of home type things needing done. The man, as usual, has been fabulous about doing the dishes and keeping the house clean but you all know how it is.

I don't think I've used my brain this much in years. I am now also a proficient filer. Woohoo. No real yarn news. Sad, but true. I am just too busy. I wish I could have a driver for the trip to work as I'd get a lot more done that way!
