Here I am...did anyone miss me?

If anyone was wondering where I have been please refer to my (forever ago) previous post. Not a day has gone by since I got my invitation that I have not gone to Ravelry to see "what is happening" in the knit and crochet community. I still have a lot of work to do cataloging my stash, but I am getting there. I will try to do better at posting something now and then to let those of you who are not on Ravelry know what I am up to.

In other news, I am working on my 8th(?) HMB Comfortghan. It will be going to a lady in Tennessee who lost her husband and it is turning out very nice. I am busy working on socks for my daughter, my niece, and a my sister-in-law. I also just started the first of two baby blankets for a friend of mine who is having twins (one boy and one girl). Another project I am working on (it is a wonder I get anything finished) is a blanket for a very dear friend to give to her son, it is Cowboys themed in the colors and I think it will turn out nicely when it is done.

In other, other news, after working for the same law firm for 8 years (to the day) I was laid off the end of last year because the law firm had become so small that they had to close. Some of you may know how much I cared for my boss and not a single day has gone by that I don't miss him terribly. On a brighter note, two weeks after I got laid off, I got a new job at a real estate office working for a very nice man who I have known for almost 8 years because he is a friend/client of my former boss and so I am still in contact with my former boss occasionally. I really, really like my job but I am still looking to get back into the legal field.

And speaking of employment related issues, the company my husband had been working for went bankrupt in October of last year (5 months ago) and he still has not found a job...of course, I think you have to be looking for a job in order to find one unless you are very, very lucky. I actually had done all the footwork a few months back and got him a job, but then he was scheduled to take a test for a really good State Job and (I could kick myself here) we decided for him to not go to that job but instead hope to get the state job. As you can see, he has not gotten it yet and I don't know if he will even though he scored really high on the test. I have ranted to quite a few of my friends, but I have decided that I am done with being "patient and understanding" and it is time for him to GET A JOB!

Well, that is it for now.

OMG is that really you. Or am I just asleep and dreaming that you had FINALLY written in your blog. hahaha Nice to see you finally getting caught up with the blog at least. But come on now you did not inform us on how much your stash has grown over the last 6 months. Geeze has it been that long for heavens sake.

Oh goodness. Good luck, and I'm glad you like your boss. We moved across the country to ditch a bad boss and get a good one--they're so important.
