It's 8:26 am. It's Saturday. I am at work and there are no doctors here. Which means all I have to do is sit here at the front desk and answer phones and direct people to optical if they should happen to come in. My manager has already said today is a "free" day, do whatever as long as patients are taken care of. Which means I can knit. Guess what I don't have with me!!!!!!

The ONE day I run out of the house with nothing but keys and phone in tow is of course the day I can actually knit at work. *sigh* I guess I really should put an emergency knitting bag in my car after all.

Oh well. Just have to make it through 3.5 more hours. Maybe I'll take a nap.

I has them!

Finally! After 2 months of living in my new apartment, I have internet and cable! I am no longer forced to blog from my phone.. which has apparently refused to post my last two entries.. stupid blackberry.

More posts with better pics are forthcoming!

Be prepared. :)

In like a lion...

I am thoroughly tired of snow! We definitely got slammed with way too much of it this morning. At least I got a day off from work. I've been hanging out at Nico's and knitting. I just may make some decent headway on a project! :D

I went to see this last night with my roommate/ best friend. I left the theater a bit unsure of what I thought,(because it didn't seem like it should be for kids!) but I did like the movie. Creepy, cute, and really well done. I will probably end up buying it when it comes out on DVD.

I won't spoil it for anyone but I will say that it was a really wonderful film and thoroughly whimsical and enchanting to watch as you follow Coraline through the other world. I am completely amazed at the tiny things that were crafted for it. The little knitted sweaters and gloves were so cute! And I adore the designs used for each characters outfits. Of course, this makes me want to attempt making something teeny tiny. But I won't cause it'd make me more blind than I already am! Haha.

Go see it!

He totally knows it.

It's been 2 months since I've posted anything. I keep saying I'm going to make more of an effort to blog and what do I do? Promptly forget.

I will be using the excuse that I have been busy with moving and that I have no internet at home. It's a sad excuse, but part of my reasoning. I am at this moment, blogging from my blackberry, which has become my sanity saver from being internet deprived. Moving out (finally!) was grand, but having no internet or cable is annoying! I really didn't think I would miss it this much. It pushed me forward with getting an unlimited internet and text package for my phone, which was a bit expensive. Totally worth it.

Anyways. I have titled this post "resolutions" so I might as well talk about what they are for the year. Even if it took me 2 months to think of them. Haha

1. Blog more often.
I know, I know. I keep saying I will do this. It doesn't happen. I WILL make more of an effort to post at least once a week minimum. Someone please kick me if I don't.

2. Keep on track with projects.
I seem to have ADD when it comes to knitting. I throw 10 different projects on the needles, maybe finish 1, frog another 5, then stuff the remaining 4 in the back of a closet or bag. The goal for this year is NOT TO DO THIS. I can't promise that I won't cast on more than one project at once. That would be silly and I can't work on only one project at a time! Who does that, really? (Well more dedicated people than me, that's for sure!) BUT I will make more of an attempt to finish current projects. If I get bored enough to put it down for a few months, it must not be all that captivating and will be frogged.

3. Spin more.
I just bought a ashford joy. Impulse buy. Should not have done it, but I do not regret it. Having two wheels and a handful of spindles on top of pounds and pounds of beautiful hand dyed fiber means I should actually do something with it. I will attempt to spin every day, even if its only for a few minutes.

4. Eat healthier.
I ingest way too much crap food. High fructose corn syrup, fast food, and just plain crap! I need to watch my diet and be healthier. This is not a weight issue thing for be, but an all around awareness that I do not want to be like my family and end up in the hospital in my 30s for angioplasty. I am not going to go all health nut crazy and eat all organic diet-y foods. I will try and cut out things like fast food, soda, and sweets. Well, maybe not too much on the sweets. A gal needs a treat every now and then.

5. Get out of debt.
One thing I really want to do is get my financials in better order. I want to have more in my savings than $0.92 (I do now but there was a sad sad period where that really was my savings) I want to have expendable income and stop living paycheck to paycheck. I want all my debt to be paid off! Starting off next year completely debt free would be a wonderful thing. I have taken some steps already towards achieving this goal, and I am confident that I can do it.

I am coming to the realization that blogging from ones blackberry is tiring and slightly painful for the thumbs. Note to self: type less for next blog post. Which means I am off to continue watching Sleepy Hollow and knitting the February Lady sweater. Johnny Depp + knitting + cuddly kitties = <3
