Onward to the Netherlands!

Today I have taken up the impossible. I will be walking* to the Netherlands from Denver, CO. This begins tomorrow, April 1, I am only allowed to get 100 miles a day in as well.

*NOTE: I am not actually walking the Netherlands. I am virtually walking to the Netherlands. My work is sponsoring a wellness challenge. We have to "walk" via working out. Each minute of working out gives us points. The points we get in the day will be transfered into miles. We are also doing this in groups of up to 6 people. so far my group has 4 members. Somehow I became the team captain....I have NO idea how that happened.

If anyone would like to join me on my trip to the Netherlands let me know. I can't officially sign you up but I will give you the ins and outs ;)

In other news I finished my Easter sock the day before Easter (pics to come). I have joined the Yarn Pirate Booty Club. My first shipment will be in April (sqee!) I have been on the news with my job (in the distance). If you are interested in the clips please let me know and I will show them to you.

Completely Speechless

I am sick....I have managed to pull myself through the work week without dying or telling my coworkers that I outta there. It was a tough decision to make. If I left I could go home and sleep and prob still feel like crap. Our project would be further delayed (obtaining permits this time around was a NIGHTMARE!) I managed to get my crew out of there early on friday with hopes of leaving at the same time. Well that didnt happen exactly. When I did get out of there I went home and called my doc's office. Come to find out they get out of there early on fridays! ARG Luckily, I was able to make an appointment with one of there other offices. Once I got there I think I was in the waiting room for less than 5 minutes before they called me back. I think my consent coughing was freaking everyone out. One lady gave me a box of tissues (because the 10 in my hand I guess was not enough) and others were coming over asking if I was alright.....If I was alright I wouldn't be in a doctors office. Since I have lost my voice I didn't really say anything....just smiled. I should be well enough to go back to work on monday but I was told not to expect my voice to be back by then.

I did get to see this awesome sunset from my hotel last week!

Also, this morning (at 630) while I was up coughing in the kitchen I heard this noise from outside. I stood by my window and oh snap that is a barred owl!!! Then he took flight over to my house....If I wasn't coughing I probably would have hunted him down and got some pics.

I used to be a girl scout and remember the trying times of going door to door to try to sell my cookies. However things are getting CRAZY now. In my office we have 2 girl scout cookie "vendors" within 10 feet of me. Come on that just isn't fair!

Piles O Cats

This weekend I have been somewhat productive (with things that distract me from what I REALLY should be doing) Yesterday busted out my sewing machine and attempted a box bag. Overall it turned out ok...I think my bobbin tension is out of whack.

This morning I released the kittens into general population...and took lots o pictures (check out my flickr account). I placed the kittens, Mage, Charlie, and Athena all out in the screened in porch and they pretty much just sat there. Right now I have them all running around in the front room. There were a lot of hisses and growls but no fights broke out.
