After a hellish day – catching up with 4 sick-days worth of work is never easy – I was nearly in tears when I found a parcel on my step. FluffyKnitterDeb, fellow admin and mod of Sock Knitters Anonymous, sent me a cheer-up gift:
A pair of socks knit using this month’s Mystery Pattern for Sockdown: Ravelry!
Where she gets the time to organize the group (I’m completely AWOL, I admit it) and knit mirco-gauge socks, I never will know. But I am deeply grateful for the thought and effort she put into them. Thank you, Debi! I might just wear these to work tomorrow.
Let’s see. We’re painfully overdue for an update, but… well, I’m in the midst of some crazy sh!t and don’t know where to start. I’ll just go over what’s taking up the most of my attention:
We’re officially another pair of hands short at work as of today. Details will be released later, when I can articulate fully.
We’re about to be another pair of hands short when J goes on Maternity Leave.
Now, those two things would be enough to make me panic were it also not for the fact that (deadline fast approaching) the Knit Purl Sock Club still hasn’t sold out. I’m beyond the panic stage. Admittedly, we’ve sold over half the spots, so that’s good. But, eep! If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
Open application for Berkeley Business School begins on August 15 and I don’t have anything ready. Now, even if I were to get accepted (not counting on anything), the term I’m applying for is Fall 09. Time, at least here, is on my side.
I’m also behind on my New Designs schedule and can’t see the floor of the laundry room.
Someone, please, kidnap save me.
(I can even pay you in yarn.)
