Busy Busy

I know my post have been dull lately but I've got to much going on and not much time to do much else; hell I shouldn't even be posting but I feel the need to lay out what is being done so that I can see in black and white why my body feels like its' been ran over by a semi...

Hmm.. since Thursday of last week (or maybe sooner) it's been work and school with no room for anything else. I did take some time Sunday for me but I felt to guilty to enjoy it. Lets lay out the week for you.

Tuesday - Work / Work on Project for school / Group Meeting for school / Bed 1 am
Wed - Work til 8 pm / Group Meeting @ office (no time to come home) / Leave Office at 10 PM / Bed 11:30
Tonight - Work til 8 pm again / Dinner w hubby / blogging / got to go work on last assignment which is due tonight

I need rest.....

Tuesday, September 19, 2006


It's 1:03 am and I'm sooo tired. This week or the past two actually have been so busy with school and work and the sad thing is I don't get a day off this weekend; I have to go NAIW. Don't get me wrong I want to go, but I need some rest. I've been working night and day since Tues or Wed of last week and geezzzz... I may take a vacation day next week just to breath. Heck, I need to knit - think my boss will go for it? "sorry man I can't come in today - I'm having knitting withdrawals..."

Well, I just wanted to touch base with my blogland friends and let you know I'm alive and kickin...

Thursday, September 14, 2006


I got my last package for secret pal 8 today and well it was incredible. It reminded me of Mary Poppins bag.... just kept going and going. I'm too tired to post pics but will do so tomorrow or the next day. Thank you Amy


Today is crazy but such is life. Here's a breakdown:

- Behind at work: Just the way it is, not enough hours in a day. Yet, I'm still taking a minute to relax and say hi to my blog friends; heck I consider it my break.

- Forgot about a board meeting tonight at 5:30...dressed in jeans; ah well hopefully they won't disown me.

- Have a group meeting for school at 7:30...have to listen to last nights lecture before I can attend intelligently. Which means I need to be home by 6:30 to have time to listen to the lecture...with the board meeting 5:30 - not sure it's going to happen. I may have to wing it at 7:30. Fun fun....

- Once group meeting is over I have to do a discussion board assignment that was due Monday, which requires me to research and compare project management software - have I pointed out that I really don't like this stuff too much?

- Really, Really want to start working on a rough draft biz plan and research for knitting shop.... need to go make sure the place in Decatur isn't a knitting shop...

- Want to do some knitting while watching ER reruns; I'm addicted...

I know my post have been boring lately but such is my life at the moment. I hope all of you are having exciting moments for me :) Chat with you later.

Climbing Out....

I'm climbing out of my slump slowly and surely...It's taking every ounce of will power I have but I am going to pass this class with at least a B if I can do anything about it. As of tonight I had two assignments overdue: one 6 page paper and a 1 page discussion board. The paper is done and I plan to work on the discussion board tomorrow. I also have to get caught up on listening to some chats tomorrow as my group meeting is tomorrow night at 7:30 and I have to be up to speed - we only have 7 days to complete this damn thing; we weren't allowed to start before tomorrow. But by Golly I'm gonna get it done and I will excel - you just wait :)

Just had to give you my progress report to help keep me motivated. I'll see you all tomorrow, I hope you are all well. Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite :)

It's Me Again

Yep, two post in one day! I know your wondering what in the world has come over me - let me enlighten you; procrastination. Yep, I'm sitting her with the assignment in front of me and GOD I DON'T WANT TO do it. I'm not sure why - I just have this dread...this desire to figure out a way any way to get out of it. If I start right now I probably won't finish the assignment due tonight until really late tonight and yet I still can't force myself to start. Aaahhhh....make it go away please.

Oh, and as if I needed any more help procrastinating Goggle has added a link on their hotbar to a knitting store. OMG Shoot me I'm never going to finish this damn MBA.

Another Day of Work

I'm sitting here today drudging thru another day. The needed quotes are piling up around me, the emails are pouring in and the phone is ringing off the hook. So I'm saying to hell with it and writing to you lovely people. This weekend was exceptionally laid back and lazy, which means one thing - I'm now BEHIND! So that being said here is my list of things I need / want to get done.

- Do Assignment due tonight, tonight!
- Do Assignment due Friday (last week), tonight or at least get good and started on it.
- Do promised knitting research.
- Sew sides of baby shirt together, wash it and post pics for you to see before I ship it off.
- Work on scrapbooking - I miss the creativity of it.
- Work on Christmas knitting.

I also need to get out and practice my photography, I enjoy the art of capturing the moment but too often find myself on the couch watching tv / reading instead of doing something constructive with my time. That being said I would not redo this weekend - Jack and I enjoyed relaxing and spending some time with one another :) Well, I gotta get back to the grind. Have a great Monday everyone!

Yep I'm Procrastinating & You're Helping Me!

Yeppers, I'm supposed to be writing my assignment right now - the books are spread out; the research in process, a paragraph has been written and now I'm here blogging. I should finish and I will but I felt the need to say hi to my blogger friends. Today, this week, or maybe just this moment in time is unique. I've been extremely happy, no not giddy happy just content. I'm content with my life. I love sitting on the couch watching tv and knitting while my hubby reads and surfs the net. I love coming home and washing the cloths, I'm just happy and it feels good - really good. I know I've had several post similar to this lately and it may be boring to some of you but this happy is such a different feeling for me. I have always been looking for the next catastrophe, worrying about when the other shoe would drop and explode my world again, or just sitting around giddy one minute and terribly depressed the next and while that does still occasionally happen I am overall happy with my life and I love it. I keep thinking about being happy and wondering how I coped before; ah well I'm not going to worry about it.

Now on to sadder subjects; Mrs. Leitch died this week. Her viewing was tonight and her funeral tomorrow. She is my best friends grandmother and has looked the same for as long as I can remember her. I didn't really know her too terribly well, to be honest I was scared of her. I'm not sure why - maybe the wig, maybe the fact that she got on to me for having hot chocolate in the bedroom when I was little, or maybe it was ... well heck I don't know why. She was the typical grandmother who baked, made her kids and grand children more pillows (sewing) than you can throw a stick at and always had this unique aura that made her, her. She will be missed by her family and I ask that you my blogger friends please keep them in your prayers for the next few days and weeks as they attempt to pick up the pieces and move on.

And back to happier things because I don't want to leave you on this fine Friday with a sad thought. My baby shirt is almost done...about 3/4 of the way. I'm so excited and I think it looks dang good! I can't wait. The bag that I showed you a few days ago in the picture has been felted and lets just say it shrunk...I'll post pics later, but guess I should have used cold water! It still works but.... goodness! No Amanda - You can't compare it to the cherry pie!!

Well, I've got to get this done so I can go to bed and have sex :) Or maybe I need a break right now, just kiddin :) Sleep well blog land.

Jamaica Day 2 and Part of 3

I'm relaxed - I mean really relaxed and it feels amazing.  Yesterday after the post they showed us a new room and I was really undecided...
