It's been a while . . .
I've been stressed out. Used to be that would have me turning to the blog, but this time I just holed up with some books and lots of reality tv. But I figured a blog post couldn't hurt. It seems I have given up on my camera. I need to charge it up and start taking pictures again! Or, I could just use my fancy new smart phone! I got a Droid X and am finally getting used to it. By used to it I mean I'm not accidentally calling facebook contacts that I haven't talked to in years. I didn't know when I linked my facebook to the phone that it would list all of my fb friends in my contacts list! And I'm getting better at typing on the touch screen. But I still haven't figured out how to put pictures on the computer. I've taken a few of my recent projects. Baby Church's afghan is documented (it's ok, because I'm giving it to my friend Kristin tomorrow and I'm sure she won't read this because no one thinks I blog anymore) and my Savannah's blanket is done too. Both of these projects are crochet, inspired by Linda's hexagon experiment. I loved her pictures and decided to try myself! I've always had trouble with the corners on granny squares, but I figured a hexagon doesn't have to be shaped like a square. In fact, it shouldn't be square shaped at all! I like a hexagon. Just started on a log cabin-y mitered square afghan for my sister-in-law. I like it. It's nice, simple knitting, perfectly suited for tv knitting, which by the way, is my favorite kind of knitting. I have a job. I work as a clerk five days on, five days off - which you would think would mean M-F, a week off, then M-F again, but you would be wrong! It's W-F, M & T and then the next seven days off. It's called part-time, but the days I work are full days. I kind of like working four hours a day better. I've been missing Savannah's volleyball games and I may miss Sophie's softball games and I don't like that. I am a stay-at-home mom and I feel like nothing should interfere with that. And if you could see the pile of laundry after working for five days? I feel like all I do on my days off is wash clothes. Blah. But I shouldn't complain. The reading specialist at my kids old elementary school, who moonlights at a yarn store, told my Sophie about the schools monthly knit night and told her to invite me, so I'm going to hang with the knitting teachers. I hung with a lot of teachers in Alpena (none of them knit though) and they were all very nice so hopefully this will be fun. They are knitters right? It will be fun. I'm going to a knit night on April 13 I'll figure that Droid out and post pictures next time. I promise.
