With Ken gone, I had a couple days to myself at home. I enjoyed the time on my own. At one point I realized nothing had been said. I was playing a game and cursed the game out loud. It startled me which also made me laugh.
I’ve finished the projects for my sister and now I’m turning my attention to my own projects. I have the student worker gifts done and now am prepping to make for the faculty. This weekend I hope to gather the items and do any shopping I need to so I can settle into getting the items made.
At the same time, I need to finish an article and get it submitted. I also have a crochet pattern which is going to be published which I need to make up again. Once it’s made up, I’ll send it off to the publisher for pictures. These are the three most urgent things on my radar.
I think the gifts will take me through most of November and then I’ll be going back to writing and crocheting in more balance I think.
I’m looking forward and thinking – it isn’t that long until we are in the holiday craziness. My middle daughter is already talking about where we are going on Black Friday – i.e. which JoAnn’s store we will go to.
My day job will get busy – crazy busy – in November. I’m hoping with the changes we’ve made it won’t be horrible. Registration always is stressful with a heavy influx of emails. I’m hoping for a lighter year as we’ve been steadily making improvements.
From now until the end of the year, I’m going to be busy both at my day job and at home working on projects. I still have my two bigger projects I’ve been working on and I’m hoping to have those done before the end of the year as well.
