So Friday, after the last few weeks that I have had I need this weekend, but at last I have to work. a meeting in new Orleans. Yes that I’d correct right on bourbon St. Do they honestly think I am going to get a learning done?

So currently on the plane now. It was delayed about 10 minutes. A short flight, but I still hate traveling by plane. Also I got my departure time wrong and was way too early. So I completed the base of the hat I plan on making this weekend and now I am shoved against the window so no crocheting for me. But no worries I need to catch up on some blogging.

So the he’ll I have currently been in. Work. Data locks and stupid data management people changing things at the end of the day. The stuff did not get finalized today and it’s getting locked and it won’t. My doc is off today.

So I arrive in NO about 1045am and I plan on finding a really good hurricane and getting drunk and walking around. I don’t have anything to do until 7pm tonight and when ICB gets in I’ll go back to the hotel.

So I frogged the knitted chevron blanket and now I am crocheting it. I love it even though it is totally funky and random. I haven’t been working as I should in it. It needs to be done by mar 9th. But if not done she is not due to June so she can get it then.

That is all that I have rally done. No sewing no nothing. I have just been so tired after the rough time I have had at work.

Ok nap time

So I know no post in a bit… It seems I have been busy and tired plus I have been using my new camera for pics and that means I actually have to get on the computer to do up any post.

Okay a little of what has been going on…

I made some lovely and kinda normal valentines day cards. I bought myself a heart shaped hole punch and I love it. I think I am going to have to start collecting hole punches. It was so much easier the hand cutting all the little hearts. Also I bought one of the greatest stamps ever!!! It is by Martha Stewart who I am not a big fan of, but her collection of crafty items is fantastic. The stamp is basically letters and you can make it say whatever you want. A very good investment I think…

No pics of the cards I forgot. I think I have one extra I’ll try to find and update. But the cards were very simple punched heart randomly cut scrap book paper and stamped with “love LOVE love”. Again very simple.

I completed some birthday gifts and actually one was on my list of things to do this year… Quilted sunglasses case. This was for KAB and they turned out great, but one was a bit too small and the other was a bit short. I need to rethink the cutting lengths. I did all the sewing on the machine and it took about 10 minutes for each one. The fabric I choose is so beautiful. Very geometric and blue. I actually have a bunch left as I bought a 1/4 yard of each so I plan on making myself a case… Maybe I’ll do a tutorial this weekend… Hmm

Also I purchased a yard and 1/2 for this beautiful green blue fabric. It was what was left on the thingy. I think it’ll be another starboard skirt. I think I need some elastic…

I did take pictures but they are on my camera. I think I need to do some posting this weekend.

Next I made another Katy hat. This one for ICB. I choose some bright orange yarn and followed the pattern to the T. It is beautiful. I added 2 buttons on top if each other and love how it looks.

see below… Pics go me!

I feel as if other things have happened, but at this moment I am at a lose. I have began working on a knitted baby blanket for a coworker. And I purchased fabric to make her some swaddling blankets. And this time I bought enough fabric. Both the patterns are from my favorites site the purl bee.

The knitted blanket is a chevron pattern and seems to be working up quickly. This is a good thing because I still have not gotten anywhere on the notso baby blanket.

So life [and WORK] have been super busy and totally wearing me out.

I have not done much crafting and I don’t have the energy to actually do any. I need to get my valentines day cards done this weekend, especially since goose will be at his dad’s. Maybe some alone will motivate me….

I have been trying to organize my life and get it where I want it to be right now. I am not unhappy, just broke and I actually make good money. Plus I have revisited retiring at 55 and I really want too… But after crunching some numbers I need to save more then I make in a year… Total bummer…

I have kinda been at a loss. I have realized that I am just floating along and getting by and that’s not what I want. I want greatness and fun and no damn floating. I want to live comfortably and not break even by the time my next paycheck comes. I want something extra. But what is the extra? I guess that is what I am having such a hard time with.

I feel like I have settled and now that I have goose I can’t change. I need to be there for him and not all broke and flaky. I am totally broke and flaky. Damn! Damn it! SHIT!

I have no idea anymore. I need a fucking vacation like today…

Work has me completely crazy. I have come to the conclusion that I am truly OVERWORKED AND UNDERPAIDED. And really there is no stopping….

Shit [light bulb] I haven’t been crafting like I normally do and I think that has help me relax and release some of the tension and I haven’t been doing it. I know I have 30something projects to do and things I want to learn. I need some damn motivation! Tonight and this weekend- goal get back on the bandwagon.

… later and please ignore my random ramblings…
