So last Friday, I got home from work to find that Kyle had bought me a laptop. He had decided that I needed a computer that was good enough to play WOW on that I can bring with me when I travel for work. That way, when I am done for the night, we can hook up online and play. So, when I was in Waco this past week, I had all intentions to sit down when I got to my hotel room, post on this blog, and then play. But, my intentions weren't good enough. For some reason, after starting work at 6:30 in the morning, working in up to 106 degree heat all day, and returning to the hotel at about 8 or 8:30, I was a bit exhausted. I managed to turn the computer on long enough to check email, and that was all. I was out. So, it may take me a little while to catch up. But, you'll survive, right?

So, I'm going to be an Auntie for the first time! We're very excited. And, we found out about a week ago that I'm not just getting 1 nephew, I'm getting 2! Yes, she's having twin boys! I think my mom had an aunt that had twins, but that's about the history of twins in our family. There's no history in her hubby's family. Can't quite figure out where they came from. lol. Boy, is she going to have her hands full! I think I may treat myself to a trip to Hobby Lobby today to check out baby patterns and yarn. Get back to working with fiber. I miss it so much! If any of you know of anything I should make for the boys, let me know!

Do I have any readers left?

ok, so i've been bad. i've been very bad. i haven't blogged or spent any time reading blogs, or visted my favorite crochet boards since the end of may. i can't even access DoD anymore because of it either. oh well. it seems the same things went down there that went down at the ville, and i just don't want to deal with that kind of crud.

so, lots of things have happened, but i won't spend an hour here tonight writing everything out in one post. that way you won't have to spend an hour reading everything in one post either. i'll spread it out over a couple of days. i'll start off by saying that working at Chico's wasn't good for me. the hours sucked. the pay sucked. and i got a bit depressed always wondering why i was stuck working retail with a college degree. so, when i got home from work, and on my days off, i didn't want to do anything. i didn't crochet, i didn't knit, and i had cancelled WOW because i wasn't playing that either. i was either spaced out in front of the tv, sleeping all day, or reading. at least i was reading. i actually went through quite a few books - mainly because that was my way of escape from what my life had turned into. i do have to say, though, that my hubby was a saint through it all. he even supported me when i decided to start trying my hand selling mary kay. by the way, if you want /need any, check out my website at

anyways, shortly after i started mary kay to earn some extra money (and to get my products at a discount) I received an offer letter from Retec (the company i interviewed for in austin). and they wanted me to start after our vacation to aruba. of course, i accepted tie job. yeah! and so far am loving it.

but, i'll get more into the job, and aruba (including pictures) at a later date. kyle needs to set his fantasy football team for his work...
