Knitty Knitterson

yah, i'm a knitting... I finished my mom's scarf yesterday... only one day after my goal! So lets see... I started it on Mother's Day... and that was.... May 8 and finished May 30..... hehe 3 weeks and one day. lmao. I am a slow knitter. But I dont have alot of time to knit either... I will have pictures of it soon, it's so big I need help taking the pictures. Maybe I will get Derek to help me tonight on my dinner break. Derek likes it... says its very soft and it reminds him of his favorite polo shirt.... have I mentioned lately that he's on crack? LOL...

So now I started a hat. It's a easy ribbed pattern... so hopefully it really will be easy and not ugly too :D The hat I am doing now is just a test hat... for no one... just to see what it's going to look like with the yarn I am using and how the size is going to be. The pattern says this hat should only take 2 hours to make. Hehe... so we will see how long it really takes for me to do it. LOL... pshh... 2 hours. yeah right. I am on row 4 now however. :D

Ok so those two paragraphs were just super exciting, huh? :D I'm waiting on Derek to come home for lunch... mmm bbq sammiches again! whoo. Ok I am about tired of the bbq... hopefully it's all gone today and we can move forward in our lives with other foods. Last night we went to Ruby Tuesday's for a semi surprise party for Derek's sister in law... that was fun... spent money we shouldn't have spent tho. :( Someone made a yummy cake for her too. I wish I had another piece. It was a huge cake tho, I should send Derek back over there for more tonight LOL... they will never eat it all. :D I want ice cream too. good ice cream...ooh a banana split! YUM... can you all tell I am hungry? where oh where is derek!?

Eh, I need to clean the house so terribly bad. It looks like a tornado just landed downstairs... it's because I didn't do a single thing this weekend as far as cleaning ... other than the fact that Derek did a load of laundry. So that means that I am going to have to get my ass in gear and clean. I dont want to tho. Who ever does? It's no fun.

What is the deal? For the last 3 months, I have not been able to sleep past 9 am. And now all of a sudden, today I slept in til 11 am!! Yesterday I slept til 10! It's crazy. I am not whining tho... although, it feels like now I am missing part of my day. Which before when I was sleeping til noon every day, I never felt like I was missing part of my day. LOL. I suppose you get use to the extra hours.

Yesterday was a pretty laid back day. Had the most awesome Po' boy shrimp sammich for lunch, went to the movies and enjoyed Star Wars, Ep. 3. Then to the grocery store and Derek made chicken curry for dinner and we watched the All-Star Nascar races. Took Pdog to the park and then went to bed.

Star Wars, Ep. 3....go see it. I'm not a hard core fan, but it was just a really good movie all around. Derek liked it and he's a star wars geekoid. They even let us take our drinks from outside into the theatre... that was wierd. LOL. We went to a matinee... I think I love going to those much better than the movies at night. For one, it's cheaper... but I like coming out of the dark theatre into the blinding light and still having most of your day left to do whatever.

Tracy just called me. Ethan is crawling!! :D He's 8 months old now... I think. Yeah 8. I dont konw when babies start to crawl, but I know that Nick was so fat as a baby he skipped crawling all together mostly. And I know that when I was a baby I was WALKING at 9 months... but Brooklyn didn't walk til her first birthday. So I dont know... maybe he's right on time LOL. I have to get over there and take some pictures of him... or video, even better.

My mom is having a partial hysterectimy tomorrow.... she's pretty nervous and she's going to be out of work for 6 weeks. I think me and Tracy and the boys are going to go down there next weekend. I really really dont want to... I hate going down there with a passion. And I dont know if I should make Derek come with me... I might could, but really I dont think I will unless he just really really wants to come. Because that would be 5 extra people, eh... too much going on. I hate for him to have to be alone all weekend tho. That would suck. But I dont know, I have to be the good daughter and go tho.

Well I need to go get dressed, I think we are heading to ertown to see derek's parents and grandparents and partake in some chinese buffet.... all I can say is that there better be crab raggoons on the buffet or heads will roll :D

I need a motivator.

I am wishing I was still in bed. I will probably never sleep late again. Stupid medicine. I did sleep til 10 am this morning, which is 1 hour later than what I usually get in.

I had to work late (til 2 am) last night at the tv station.... we were having some bad weather, so the meterologist had to stay and do live cut=ins so that means some of production gets to stay too. And you cant do tv with out production.... no matter what the talent might think. I really needed the overtime anyways, and Derek was already in bed... might as well take advantage of it.

Man, I have absolutely no motivation again. I need to do dishes and really I just dont want to. But I dont want to do anything but sit here and stare at the computer or knit. I need to pick up the computer room too, I think every pair of shoes I own are in here. I need to balance my check book... and I am afraid. LOL. I need to also look for jobs today too so I dont have to hear Derek bitch about it later.

But today is Friday. I am off the weekend, not even on call! Whoo hoo! And we dont have a single plan in the making. I feel like I haven't seen Derek in days, so this weekend will be good for us to hang out and maybe I'll get laid. ;-)

I had forgotten all about my lil blogspotter thing here. I wrote my first and only entry at the beginning of february. So much has happened since then.

When I first started this, I was anxiously awaiting the end of February to come. In June of 04, my boyfriend moved to LA and we broke up, but he was scheduled to return at the end of February. Well I flew to LA and drove all the way back across the country with him to Tennessee, where we live. We are back together now and happy as I have ever been.

Right before he returned, we had the talk of talks. We figured out that I love him more than anything and he loves me the same. And the way that makes me feel is undiscribable. No words can tell you what my heart feels when I look at this boy. So he came back and we are going to make a go of life.... together.

We are both currently looking for jobs anywhere in the USA... we dont really care where we live as long as it's not FL and there is a graduate school near by that Derek can go to. I work in television right now... in tv production acutally... but would love to get into any form of media. Derek has a degree in Digital Media and a degree in Geography. He wants to work in cartography or GIS stuff. Hopefully soon one of us with get the job and we can get the heck out of this podunk town.

I am going to go for now. I am going to work on my knitting before I have to meet Derek for lunch.... I promise to be back and write more. I have another online journal somewhere else that I write in daily, but this would be a good way to meet more people.

Later, poops. :D
