sense of accomplishment
With all the wedding planning and trips up north for interviews, my blog reading fell by the wayside. Everyday that I logged onto bloglines, the number of posts I had saved kept growing and growing. It got to about 150+! Well, I am happy to state that I'm now down to about 50 posts. Maybe come next week, I'll be all caught up again. :) I often times save recipes that I've found on blogs or things that I think are cool. Like this, or this, or this! I applied for a bunch of jobs yesterday and I heard back from the district receptionist via email earlier today so we'll see if that leads anywhere. I applied for one job today too and I got referred to a couple as well. Can't someone just hire me already?? My friend from work asked me today if we were still gonna move if I didn't have a job anywhere and I said that we'd still move--eventually. I don't want to change gears again. We're in deep this time around. The last time we tried to move, I hadn't packed anything yet. This time is different. I'm feeling like if we don't get out now, we never will. I just received a letter from one of the schools I interviewed with last month. I don't know why they bother writing me a letter when an email or even a phone call would suffice. Why waste paper and a stamp to tell me thanks but no thanks? Granted, it's better than not hearing from them at all but come on, that was about a month and a half ago. I think I got the hint when I didn't hear back from them right away. Ooooooooooooooooh, pretty! I received my final sock yarnista shipment today. I had to cancel it until I start working full-time again. It's gorgeous. It's a cashmerino blend. The colorway is rhubarb. It's even prettier in person and amazingly soft. If you haven't tried any of Sharon's yarns, you must. She's a doll and she is a color magician! :) I don't think these pictures do the yarn justice though. I've been slowly knitting away on pinkie. I'm 2 repeats away from completion and already I'm shopping around for another lace project. I thought about the springtime bandit, I contemplated milkweed. I even thought about laminaria but so far, nothing has really sparked my interest. Maybe I need to go back to my something blue and get it done before we move so that I don't end up mailing it to my sister! I spent a lot of time the other night comparing shawlette patterns and I did a bit more in the morning. The next shawlette I undertake needs to be blue though. Yet as I took a look at my stash on rav, I noticed that I don't have that particular shade of blue that I'm looking for. When I first started joining knitting swaps, I always said that my favorite colors were blues and greens. After a while, I had reached my limit in blue yarn and now there's a definite lack of blue yarn in my stash. I need to do something about that--once I get my first check from my next future job. ;) Maybe I'll begin work on that pair of fingerless mitts my husband is waiting on. I think I finally found a pattern. We watched a goofy movie last night. It was called Ramen Girl. Brittany Murphy is the one and only 'star' in the movie. It was cute. A lot of yelling in Japanese but still funny.
