It's amazing how much one can miss when one doesn't sit in front of a computer 9 hours a day. I just spent the time to play catch up on everyone's blogs for the past week. You guys have been busy and creative.
My week off was alright until yesterday. The DH talked me into getting my nails and toes done in preparation for the new job starting Monday. It was nice to do this for myself. I love it when my nails are done and my feet were in need of a pedicure and now my toes look so cute. However, yesterday I got a call that I won't be starting the new job on the 6th. They have pushed it back to the 13th. So this is a glass half empty, half full scenario. On the one hand we were not expecting not to have a paycheck for 3 weeks. That puts us in a tight situation and pushed the second half of the barn back yet another 2-3 weeks. It also makes for a boring second week off. No money means no frivilous trips to lunch, take in a ball game, etc.
Now I have plenty to do around the house. I am still chugging along on the special order blanket. I have almost used up my entire stash of cotton yarns for dishcloths. There's always something to do with the horses. So it's not like I am bored...just bored with what is available to do. Just having a little extra mad money would be nice. Now I'm just being whiney. I'll stop. LOL
