My lack of updates is a reflection of my efforts to not waste my time on the computer. Not that I have stopped entirely, but I am trying to make more of my days. I have been on a ton of interviews, I have even been offered a couple of jobs but nothing that paid enough. One place only paid $12/hour and required a college degree.. huh? wow

I have gotten a few crochet pieces done, I figure if I am going to be home I should be creative. I finally figured out what to make for Nathan, its a surprise but I will say that i got the pattern today and I need to star on it now so that i can get the whole things done by July when I finally get to see my little man in person. Also, I recently mastered a flat crochet heart and leaves that I think would be cool to incorporate into my scrapbooking pages. I love anything textural or dimensional, like felt and tissue paper and chip board. I am considering finally starting on the Honeymoon Scrapbook as well, I have an empty 81/2 by 11 book and thats a size I have been wanting to try. I wonder if i can print out weather reports for that week (Boo hurricanes!).

I think tomorrow I am going to be productive, I think it would do me good :)

well it's been a while, hehe, oops.
Not much really hs been going on. We decided not to move to Austin so now I am getting a job here instead of waiting and getting one down there (I suppose I could still get one down there but it's just not a commute that I would find fun).
I determined that I don't want a lab job at this time. They pay terribly and the work is monotonous. I sat down one day and just looked at what I enjoy and what I am good at and I think customer service/ sales type jobs are something I would be good at. The problem is thats hard to put on paper. Oh well. I will find something.
We have looked at a few houses and I think I am winning the new vs old house war (yay new!) I can't wait to move but it does make the job issue a little more complicated, or maybe it just gives me too many options :)
I finished Lyla's lion (Stan Grossman) and have moved on to Hydrienne's bear (possibly a Kola) and will work on Aidan's monkey next and now you are all caught up
Oh yeah mother's day was fun, we went to a RAngers game with Carol the day before and church and lunch with my mom the day of, good times.
