…just not motivated to post, I guess. Not much going on other than frustration at not being told my class schedule so I can give it to my managers so they can figure out my schedule. One of them is leaving for vacation in about a week and would like to figure out the schedule for while she is gone.

At least my 30-day review went really well. Apparently I either have met or exceeded all her expectations and we have had no complaints from accounting on any of my work so far. Go me!

Knitting hasn’t really been progressing. I just haven’t been feeling it. We have made some painting progress, and Josh is building me shelves for yarn and my stuffies! I think he just wants the bird army out of the living room. My sprouts are doing quite will,and the zucchini is growing like mad. I probably should have waited until about now to start them, but at least I know the seeds are good!

Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates, but the whole moving things took my motivation to blog.

We have all our stuff at the house and did the check-out for the apartment today. We are going to get our whole deposit back, which is quite nice. Barely anything is put away yet, but I have a fairly decent idea of where everything is, which helps a bit. Most of the kitchen is put away, but since we are going to be putting up shelving for my baking supplies on one wall along with our pot rack, there is still a lot of stuff just hanging out in odd spots. The bedroom is painted and looks great. I wish I could share a picture, but I can’t seem to locate the cord to transfer them to my compy. The wall color is latte and the ceiling is divine white. There isn’t going to be anymore painting for awhile.

Work is going really well. I love the people, and there is enough variety that I don’t get bored. I have applied for a job in receiving to pick up a few more hours there, so I don’t need to go find another part-time job else where.

Ok, I am going to play Wind Waker now. Wiiiiii!!!!!! (It’s actually a for GameCube)

Grrrr….arrrgh….

The truck is in the shop due to a frozen/locked/stuck caliper on the rear passenger wheel of our rear-wheel driven truck. For those wondering, the caliper is what the brake pads rub against to stop your vehicle. I know this because I watched Josh and his dad change them on my car a few months ago when my car started making grinding noises when I braked or turned.

This means, instead of driving 5 minutes to work today I am taking a 1+ hour bus ride well, actually two different buses with a 15 minute wait between the two buses. I would just walk if the wind chill wasn’t hovering around -20F today. Oh well, at least I will get some knitting or reading time.

I am better!!! About 48 hours after getting sick, I was feeling mostly normal. I still don’t have much of an appetite if I don’t get reminded to eat. I wouldn’t have eaten lunch today if I hadn’t gotten a free sammich at work and was later reminded to eat it by a co-worker.

Speaking of my new co-workers, I love them! It’s nice to work with other people again and not rely on notes for communication. The drive is also a plus. It looks like I will be helping not only develop gluten free items, but also helping them make pizza dough instead of buying it for our pizzas.

I think one of the first big projects for the house is going to be a new driveway. It is nearly impossible to get up if there is snow due to the angle and the ice has been impossible to get rid of. We are also going to purchase some new garage doors shortly as the current pair is rather ragged and not insulated at all, which is not good with the garage shares a wall and a ceiling with the rest of the house.

Now to figure out what to do with my two days off.

So we had planned to get a jump start on buying supplies and painting, but I ended up with a stomach bug, which means I am completely useless. At least I haven’t thrown up an almost 10 hours I still feel pretty crappy. Josh went over to the house for awhile today and took the mirrors off the wall and bought a ladder and other random things we need for the place. I was worried that the mirrors would be really stuck on the wall, but apparently they were just held on by some tape and what seems to be joint compound around the outside edges. Now we just have to replicate the texture on the wall where the mirrors were.

Now to continue with the 7UP and saltines.

I really enjoy finding, what I think, is the perfect gift for someone I care about. Of course there are the times when your gift is so perfect the person purchased the item already without your knowledge. Despite the fact I love giving a great gift, I really hate figuring out what that gift should be.

Until last week, I hadn’t even thought about what I wanted to get anyone. I figured out a few things this weekend and had a really good idea for Josh one day, but that disappeared from my mind before I could write it down.

This year, I am completely lost. Also, I have no idea what my plans are for Christmas. Maybe i will make everyone come to me on the pretense of showing them my new house.

Josh and I weren’t planning to get gifts with the whole house thing, but today he decided we should get small gifts. His “reason” other than wanting to get me something, was he doesn’t want to explain to people why he’s not getting me anything.

I know I am going to be making a few coffee cozies and thick socks. Josh is getting a Jayne hat, but he knows about that so I don’t think that’s going to count as his gift.

Grr… I hate making decisions.
