  • My driving record should be fine, but they haven’t made me an “official” job offer yet
  • Still waiting to see how much it’s going to cost to fix my car
  • I’m picking up my bees on May 8!  Now I just need to build the hive.  I haven’t started yet.

it ain’t real forgiving, sitting here picturing someone else living

My interview went well yesterday.  I have a second one next week where I’ll meet the people I would be working with, if they hire me.  If I get this job it will be full-time with benefits, which is awesome…but I’ll have to quit my job working with the kids, which sucks.  There isn’t any contest though because I can’t turn down health benefits at this point, not to mention more money.

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.  I have a a splitting headache because I haven’t been sleeping, and I have a lot to accomplish this weekend:

  • Order bees
  • Start building the bee hive
  • Finish everything that’s left for my graduate school application
  • Clean multiple things
  • Get as much knitting done as I can

Here’s a pic of my progress on the Lacy Hug Me Tight.   The ribbed part is the body.  The lacy bit is one sleeve.  I’m at about half the length for the body.  I’m using Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Wheat.  It’s heavier than the pattern calls for, but it’s the best I could find at the craft shop.  And, I didn’t want to wait for mail order yarn to get here.  My gauge seems to be right though.
