Happy New Years!

First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Years. Hopefully the resolutions that you pick you are able to stay with them. I have a few that I would like to accomplish. One is to start studying for the GRE. I have started but I have not been able to just dive in.

I have finished a few scarfs for my family that I need to ship out to them. I have also started making a scarf for charity as well as a few things hopefully for me!!

Yesterday I snuck in to see Josh's burn. It was pretty cool when they burnt the house down.

After the burn I went to my car to leave and noticed that my car wouldn't start. I was low on gas so thought was maybe that. I walked to the gas station got some gas got harassed by a hobo and filled my tank. Click Beep Click Beep Click Beep......hmmm well it wasn't the gas. So next thought was the battery now that I am getting clicking. I find a guy (and his family) in the parking lot of dunkin donuts and got a jump. He thought the beeping was odd as well. BUT I got it running so I could get home and out of the heat.

Well I must get back to knitting the scarf!

Ho ho and more hos

This was a different Christmas. My first Christmas with out my family. That was a little hard on me. However this was my second Christmas with Josh. Although he doesn't get into the holidays like I do. Our apartment would not be big enough for my Christmas tree. We were thinking whether or not we wanted to get a Christmas tree way to long because it was Christmas Eve Eve and we didn't have a tree and I hadn't done ANY Christmas shopping. Well that sucked so I ended up decorating the fake tree that sits in our corner and put a tree skirt around. On Christmas Eve Josh was very anxious and wanted to open presents. Well I put my foot down and went to bed. The next morning I was up at 9 and Josh was still sleeping. I guess he stayed up to see if Santa was real or not. At about 1 his mom called to wish him a Merry Christmas. I figured well she is up on the West coast so Josh can get up. I turned on Christmas music in the room and he, of course, ran out saying noooooo not that! Shame Christmas music only comes on once a year. Well he got up made me open my present first. This was the first present he has ever wrapped, so he says, and the first actual present he bought for Christmas before Christmas. Well it was a very cute attempt at wrapping. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it. He used an entire roll of tape wrapped around and around. Oh and I was not allowed to use a knife to open it....darn. Well I finally got it open and he got me an mp3 player!!! So that is cool. It is a Sandisk and all pretty and black. Since it was a good gift I let him open his presents. A thing of nuts, chocolate covered cherries, tin of popcorn, a keyboard, and a bbq. He did get an early Christmas present (his bike) so i did put that behind the tree. After all of that and a few minutes of playing with our toys, we put the bbq together and cleaned up. We were having chick next door over and one of Josh's friends. Cooked some good chicken and played cranium while drinkings. Girls against boys. Needless to say us girls KICKED ASS. We are good at drawing and acting. Well today I am going to do some laundry since I don't have anything to wear to work anymore. sigh

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!!!!

Is it friday yet?

I just got back from about 2 weeks in the field (not counting the weekend) Let me just say I am ready for the weekend....Just one more day. I did that the two days after Christmas. Those five days will be spent with yarn and cats!!! This week I did see a lot of cute baby cows. And going out all the time is making the dog miss me more and attack me at the dog by licking.

barely alive

well it has been a loong long week. I have been out in the middle of no where working my butt off with 15+ hour days. This weekend I still have a lot to do workwise. I am going back to the middle of nowhere so tomorrow I am getting my paperwork together and putting in my hefty time sheet. Hopefully I can get all my cards sent out on Monday. I wasn't finished addressing them last weekend. So have no fear, if I have your address your card is on the way!

Tonight Josh is taking me to look at christmas lights in the area. That has been a tradition in my family since I can remember. I think I might have even gotten him to go with me later to get our picture taken. We will see.

Well I am going to go play with some yarn and make some cookies!

wake me up before you go go

I just don't get it. Why are ALL the horrible fashoins trends coming back. I was out shopping with a co worker when I heard her say I want to get some leggings and a big shirt. WHAT!!! Next those clips for the shirt will come back. Maybe The jeans with the skirt over it will come back. WOOT...ok not really those made me mad too. Big hair is prob going to come back too. Maybe I should be practicing teasing my bangs.
