Ok, so work is still fun. had a little bit of a mix-up this first check though. For some reason Borders decided that instead of my new store here in MN, I worked for the old store in Ca. So.....they sent my check there instead. And than when we tried to fix that, they deposited my check into my OLD account in CA, which has been closed since April. I FINALLY got the damn thing today, a full week later. Thankfully the store has a policy where is payroll messes up, they give you a 70% advance, so I had money for gas and feed. Other bad thing is I'm now allergic to the hand soap and dish soap we use, so hands are all broken out and sore. :(

Oh, Scott has an ear infection and I have bronchitis. Ain't winter fun?

No knitting news cause I'm still trying to crochet my shawl. The pattern is working out pretty well so far. I hope to have it done in the next few weeks. *knock on wood*

Ok, first day at work, job still as i remembered it, so still liking it. Man do my legs hurt though, 8 hours on them really hurts. missed Scotty, and he missed mommy too if the way i got those cute shrieks and "kisses" (read as opening mouth and licking you) are any indication.

Off to make dinner cause I want j to have a little break, he's playing house husband right now. Toods to all

Ok, things are getting better now. I got the job back that the car made me lose, so I start Tuesday. I'm happy about it because it's the same job I had before I got fat (read with child) and I like the job, plus I like the perks. Come on, when you spend over a grand on books in 9 months and that's at 33% off, you know a person likes to read. I need all the help I can get in that area. Now just gotta find a daycare person so when J goes back to work theres someone to watch the munchkin.

On the Scotty front, I can't believe he's already 6 months!!! Where did my little baby boy go. All that's here now is a little man who rolls around in circles and chatters away at me. Plus, you should see him eat, he loves his food. So far just apples, carrots, and peas and the normal rice cereal, but still, he just ate 4 oz of cereal and wanted more.

On the note from my SP, I wanna know what the heck you ordered from Germany for me. This waiting is gonna kill me, I just know it! Can't wait anymore, and I hate surprises, just ask J. I tickle them all out of him as fast as I can. Hmmm, maybe I'll try and tickle this one out of him too. *insert evil cackle here*

When it rains.....

Well, when it rains it pours so they say. I think it's true. First off, thanks to everyone who commented or emailed me to tell me it's gonna get better, all I can say is you don';t know how much it means to have people who've never met me do that. And it's gotta get better, I hate to think it can get any worse than it is now. Jay (hubby) went to work Monday night (cause he works nights for UPS) and was fired because of the car problems and missing the week of work. Never you mind that he'd called his supervisor EVERY night to keep her updated, and called in on the UPS line as well. We're trying to figure out why they couldn't just can him on Sunday night when he went it, instead of waiting a night. So now there's a grevince filed against them with the union and we're waiting to see how willing they are to pay attention to the laws. Minnesota has one of those nifty ones where if the fired person demands their check it has to be given to them in under 24 hours, or they have to pay the regular daily wage until they pay up. Going on day 2 in a few hours.

But good things happened, have health coverage again, so I can go and get new glasses (FINALLY) so I can see. I started crocheting a pineapple shawl and can't see what I'm doing cause it's in size 10 cotton and without my glasses I'm just this side of legally blind. can still knit though, so I'm knitting a Bog Jacket from Knitting Around (Elizabeth Zimmermann). I love her patterns.

Here I go off to squint some more. Best wishes to all, and happy holidays!

I'm finally home again in Minnesota, got in last night. Our car is still dead though, we just went up to the in-laws house and they signed over my hubby's old car, it's only a year newer than the caddy but has the same miles on it, so by no means a new car. I don't care though, it's got wheels and runs. The worst thing about this trip, we left Chicago on Thursday, made it just past a town called Mauston in Wisconsin, and it died again. My other father-in-law helped us by putting $1,800 into this POS and it still died. So the step-FIL (weird family I know) drove down from middle of MN to resuce us and drive us back to their place, 6 house one way.

But home and checking up on messages left for me. If anything is weirdly typed, it's cause Scott kicked off my glasses and broke them, so I can barely see. Never again am I going on a long car trip in my own car, I'm renting for ever more.
