I worked a double yesterday. With my back all jacked up and taking 6 ibuprofen every 4 hours just so I could stand... my opening mgr had to call out because her little girl was sick (which I am totally sympathetic to, really) but that left only me to hold down the fort. Which I why I am home today all twisted up like a pretzel. No way I was going to work 14 hrs then another 9 - eff that.I'm trying to find a chiropractor to see tomorrow morning before I go into work, but OMG apparently none of them take my insurance and I cannot afford $129 for the visit. I mean, I could pay it but then why do I have insurance? That would be a payment to one of my credit cards or a utility bill, when I already pay $187 a month for Blue Cross...This makes me crazy.
The good thing is that I get to sit home today with tea, a moist heating pad and my knitting- watching football, NASCAR and the Mewling Stomachs outside on the patio, teasing Angel.
Stitches East is this week - I think I might be able to go for one day.
I wrote a vent email to a small circle of my friends a few weeks ago, and got some fantastic responses. I'm still chewing on the information and rolling it around in my head, but it's being considered thoroughly. I thank all of you who have been a part of my fact-finding journey and will talk to you guys more about it in the near future.The neat thing is that, over the weekend, I enrolled for a few classes at the community college to get a ball rolling again, any ball rolling. I will basically be one old-ass freshman, since I am essentially starting over.
I am angry with one of my sisters. I won't say which one but I can just say that it's a skinny one. (funny huh? All 3 of them are less than 100 lbs) She makes me so frustrated with her attitude towards me and lack of using her brain. I don't love her any less - heavens no - I just pray every day for this dilemma of my anger towards her because I have enough stress going on without having to worry about family relations.My SIL just got a nifty tattoo last week - it's to honor Dad and it makes me smile, because I loved my FIL and John & I miss him dearly - he was a huge Steelers & NASCAR fan and loved me because we got along so well. Plus, I know my way around cars and power tools *wink*
A hello to all my friends. I apologize for not being in touch but you know my situation. I was frustrated that I had to miss sNb last Thursday, because it's a time I look forward to every week and I schedule my workweeks around that time if I can make it happen.
On the fun and smiley front-I can't wait for Duran Duran's new album to come out Nov. 13th - it's called RED CARPET MASSACRE and I've already heard 4 songs off it. They are playing in NY next month to coincide with the release, but unfortunately, we will have to wait until the regular tour embarks b/c $150 for a general admission ticket is out of the question. I've invested a fortune this year in NASCAR and I have to draw limits. Same subject - the Hooters are playing in Philadelphia on my wedding anniversary, and the tickets are more affordable, but we will be home in WV that weekend for a wedding so again, can't make it happen right now.
Gigi of Monkey Toes has outdone herself. I love my sock bag collection. Now all I have to do is wait for Zonda's shop to open and I may feed my bag fetish further LOL
I have an extra Ravelry invite to offer up to someone who hasn't signed up yet or is somewhere in no-man's land on the wait list. Msg me if you truly cannot wait and let's see what we can do
Other than that - nothing else is going on in my boring little corner of the world. I'm sorting through some piccies to put up, so until next post...
Welcome to my blog - all knitting, all cats, all the time ...come in, get warm and share your thoughts and pics --- it's all good! Mewsings, scratchings, and a long nap in the sun....
