Ok, it's been a while since I posted. Unfortunately that's because nothing new and exciting has really been happening, until today.
I'm excited because I got an email from my Secret Pal, Sharon, saying that my reveal package is on it's way! I can't wait to see what's inside...I'm also excited because Kimberly received her package from me today! Woohoo! Now I don't have to sign my name as SP anymore! Course, that also means that I have to re-train myself on what my name really is anytime I write to her. She seems to like everything I sent her, which is good and bad. I told her if she didn't like the bag I made her, she could send it back without any hurt feelings. I guess she like the bag. It was so hard for me to send it because I fell in love with it! I like it so much better than the one I made myself. Oh well. It just gives me an excuse to go buy more wool yarn so I can make me another. I had so much fun this round getting to know Kimberly. I feel like we can be friends for a long time. I unfortunately didn't hear from Sharon as much as I would have liked. Would have been nice to get to know her a little better too. But, there's always time, and she was really busy the past few months!
And the last bit of good news you ask? Our dining room table came today! Woohoo! I'll have to take pictures and post them. It's just sitting there waiting for me to come home from work. I can't wait to see how it looks in our house! And it's just in time for Thanksgiving too. Which is good because apparently Thanksgiving is at our house this year. Yippee!
The only sad news for today is one of my co-workers got let go. :( And it's the co-worker that I'm making the blanket for. So, I'm really upset as well as some others. We all knew that he was going to leave sooner or later, and he does have somewhere he can go, but I guess we were just hoping it was going to be later and because he decided to leave. Unfortunately, my company decided to create a situation where they had a reason to let him go. They say it was because there just wasn't enough work, but between me and you, that's bull. There were projects where he had experience, but they were given to someone without experience. They've been keeping work from him for a while. He'll be missed.
Anyways, that's my news for today! I'm going to head home in about 10 minutes to see my table and maybe do some playing tonight. I have pictures of my final squares and of my puppies dressed for football season that I will probably post at the same time. Who knows? Maybe it will actually be tomorrow! After all, I only have about an hours worth of work to do when I get in tomorrow...
