Yeah, that's me...still alive, still frazzled
Not a whole lot has changed on mine end. I'm a Nanny again for a person friend. I'm watching her two granddaughters (it's a looong story) while she's at work. Oldest is 5 and a talker (the girl will not shut up!) and loves to craft, something that is largely my fault, mwahahah. The youngest is 2, loves to draw with crayons...on everything, and still only communicates with single words and broken sentences; thank god. But they're both good girls and I rather enjoy my work...most days. My friend Cierra (who is the girl's aunt) is staying with them for the time being, along with Baby Leah, and her two dogs...so this should be interesting.
School is going well. Taking two classes at the same time -- BusLaw1 and Math -- which makes time management interesting. Thankfully I can pop a movie in for the girls in the morning to get some reading done, and work on assignments when they are both napping. And then there is all the time in the evening I have open. It's times like these that I'm glad that I don't have an actual 9-5 job, or a huge amount of things to do after I get home. There wouldn't be enough hours in the day.
I'm also sorta working at my LYS. The ladies there needed someone to be on-call if one of the regular employees can't make it in, or if they are going on vacation, or whatever. So far I haven't been called in. But at least I'm on the map, which is more then I can say for my husband. But let's not get into that.
I've also published another fingerless glove knitting pattern. Fun times. =) I still want to make a hat, and those darn breast cancer socks, not that the pattern for either of them is doing what I want it to do. *grumbles*
And when I'm not knitting (sorta), or running after small humans, or doing school work, I'm drooling over pictures of my Ladybug spinning wheel. Mom and I are making payments on one right now, and hopefully we'll have it all paid off by the beginning of August. That is at least the time frame I'm shooting for. Then we just have to figure out a way to get it; be it by the shop shipping it, or by us driving down and getting it. Did I mention the shop is in California? Lol. Yeah...about that. But I guess the ladies that run the shop travel all over the place to be at fiber shows and conventions, so hopefully they'll come close to us...which would be awesome. I want me wheel dam it! I almost licked it at Madrona Fiber Festival so that I could claim it as mine. Hey! if it works for animals and peeing on stuff, why can't it work for humans and licking things?
