I have nothing new to report. I just felt weird having everything so empty in here.
When i'm not at work, which is going awesome for a change (and I swear to god I'm not being sarcastic), I'm looking for somewhere to live. When I'm not looking I'm stressing out and worrying about finding somewhere to live.
When I'm not doing that I'm most likely asleep. Or drinking, which is sort of the same, but completely not.

Who knew constant worry could make you so tired.

I need to leave the city for a day. And get a dog and cat. And buy a bike. And play something other then Oblivion for the 3rd time.

I have no idea what I'm really talking about....I hope I find a house soon.

Damn you food! falafel sandwich was so good...and the fries with mayo garlic dip were dreamy, but man, my stomach is in knots. Giant knots of pain and torture.

And this on top of the pain I was already feeling in my nether regions.

Argh. Ugh. Ick.

I have a top secrept knitting project I'm avoiding starting. I'm fine once my projects are started, I just hate the first few stitches. They drive me insane. I'm unlike every other knitter around...I like the monatiny of working on the body of a sweater, I hate starting it or working on the sleeves or seaming it...I like all the boring in the middle. I wonder what that says about me. I like tedious tasks that let me get completely wrapped up in my thoughts? I really enjoy watching stupid tv shows while actually getting things accomplished?

I'm going to try my hand at writing patterns soon. Its not really that difficult, the math doesn't scare me at all, and its gotten so easy to sell them yourself. PDF's have made life easier.

I was also contemplating writing again too. I'd like to think I could go back to poetry and be as skilled and talented as I used to be, but I don't know. Even essay writing makes me nervous. Whenever I think about writing I picture it as a big pool, and I'm standing next to the deep end and I don't want to jump in. Cause, you know, I could die, or make an ass out of myself, or come to the realization that I suck at everything I used to be good at. (i was never good at swimming, but I digress)

I'm a total whimp. I think that's the moral of my story.

I really should blog when I'm something other then exhausted.

Work is crazy, and when I'm not working I'm looking for somewhere to live. We're sick of the commute and being so far away from everything and everyone. I'm not technically in the suburbs but I may as well be. Its horrible, HORRIBLE! How do normal people do it?

Sheep and Wool. For being as photograph crazy as I am I took maybe three shots the whole day, and they all included sheep and their adorable tocks. A huge heart felt hug and thank you to my two traveling companions: the lovely Laura and wonderful Carol. It was a fun day full of swearing, boob talk and sheep ogling.
My haul this year was light, for me anyway. Five small skeins of lace weight and two cones of Shetland...that's it. I had fun, but just wasn't really into buying this year. Its weird...all the yarn becomes a big blur after awhile, and my interest in it wanes as the day progresses. Although, I am proud to say this is the first year I've had zero buyers remorse. I'm getting so sensible in my old age!

Details about Sheep and Wool and the wonderful women behind Knit So Fine (go buy it now)....soon.
A post detailing something other then how tired I am........hopefully?

Later gators!

I have promised pictures.
I have many pictures to post.

I've just had one doozy of a week. I'm so tired that I could fall asleep sitting here. And seriously...if I see one more excel sheet I may scream. SCREAM!

I do have good news though. I finally had my year review at work...and it went awesome! I'm appreciated and I got a raise. I'm still spending most of my paychecks to pay off my retarded credit card debt, but at least now I have a few extra dollars left over!

And...the absolute best part....I will be getting paid retroactively for the past month, starting with tomorrows pay day! Conveniently before Maryland Sheep and Wool!

There really is a god!
