New Job, New Yarn, New Objectives In Life

My life in the last two weeks had consisted of work, hospitals, babysitting, and study. The hospital was the big one: my mother thought she had a heart attack and was hospitalized for a few days. She's fine now but it was frightening.

Work has been great, just busy. Or keeping me busy, I should say. I don't think I even mentioned getting the job on here...Let me start from the beginning. My mother works for a company. Said company needed help after an employee left. I was asked to volunteer and did so. After a week, the Executive Director called me into her office and offered me a a part-time position which I graciously accepted. That's about it.

So 3+ days a week, I'm working outside the home. I have to say, it's a very interesting place to work. I don't have an official job title yet but I've done everything from filing to doing presentations to putting new documents in place to working on marketing and promotion. My jack-of-all-trades attitude finally came in handy, guys.

This unfortunately means I don't have as much time for cooking or knitting as I used to. I'm still buying plenty of yarn though.

Ah, so wonderful. I'm still plugging away at my clapotis and trying to get a handle on DPNs. Knitpicks is currently having a sale on sock books so I think I'm going to have to get some next payday (which is actually tomorrow, w00t!).

On the food front, I'm also going food shopping tomorrow. Here's hoping that leads to more exciting food than the tuna sandwiches I have subject my family to the past couple of days.

As for new objectives? I think that's a post for another day. I'll just say the job is opening a lot of doors for me.

If you haven't already, check out the SOTW for this week. I ♥ Bat For Lashes.

Until next time,

Where have You Been?

Oh my stars, it's been a while hasn't it? Sorry, work has just been crazy this past week. Between that and trying to find classes...meh. I'll post more about that later though. Just wanted to post and tell ever I'm alive and well.
