Let’s try this update in bullets, since I’m probably a bit scatter-brained as it is.
- Operation “Find a Job” is in full swing. Unfortunately the mission isn’t even close to accomplished yet. Actually I forgot how depressing it is to look for work, especially in a city without my full professional and personal network behind me.
- Labor Day weekend has been a weekend without labor. My thank you notes are completely done, most of the presents are put away, and I even managed a little cleaning. I also managed some meals out with the girls, quality time with hubby and lots of knitting.
- I have a HUSBAND! (that’s still new!)
- Knitting progress. I seem to have a parade of knitting in progress as I’m currently rotating 4 projects (and I’ve got more to go!) From top to bottom: a lush Cozy Cable Scarf in Angora for The Studio, the Roped Shell from Interweave for A Mano, and some socks out of yummy hand-painted for me!
- My new temp job as a receptionist starts tomorrow. Let’s hope the internet isn’t blocked cause nothing but phones for 2+ weeks will be a challenge.
- Packrat on Facebook is an addiction. I can stop any time I want… NOT.
- As Jon Stewart would say: Clusterfuck to the White House 2008 is in full swing. I was totally inspired by Obama’s speech at the DNC. I was totally uninspired by McCain’s choice of Veep – apparently Palin’s family values include her 17-year-old daughter getting knocked up and married.
