Enough of That Whining, Time for Fun



Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement as I transition from the land of the Movers and the Shakers to the land of the job seekers. Don't feel sorry for me, I'll be working through the end of summer and I got a really nice package. I may even get some time off if I'm lucky. I'm just amazed at the things I think about under duress. I secretly envisioned myself sitting in a clean house, both fridgies fully stocked, nothing to do but knit and blog.

Now for the fun part. Thursday is my blogiversary and to celebrate, I'm throwing a party contest. I have 2 nice yarny prizes, I just have to figure out what the contest will be. One will definitely be a random draw simply because it's simple. Like me.

Random thought while contemplating what I want to be when I grow up:
If nuts are found in a nutshell, why isn't there salt water in a seashell?

Yup, you'll find something quick...things are starting to pick up for me. I just have to remember that it takes a few weeks for those seedling resumes to blossom into real job leads.

Happy blogiversary! I'm glad that you are at the point of realizing that all is not lost.

As for your random question, I think the answer is similar to the answer to the question, why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway ...

Happy blogiversay! I think the idea of a clean house, stocked kitchen, and nothing to do but knit sounds perfect. If I ever win the lottery, that's exactly what I'll do.

I'm so glad to hear everything is going well for you and that you had a great time at the Flaming Lips concert. I see lots of knitting in your future!
