Okay so I know by now this is a theme with me. I don't post for a really long time then I'm good for a while then no posts again. I promise, THIS TIME, I'm going to keep up on it. It's not like I have tons to do at work.
There have been requests by many people that I haven't spoken to in a while for updates on what's going on in my life so here you go. Don't worry there will be knitting updates as well.
Perhaps I should do the knitting updates first. That way those of you who don't care about the rest of my life don't have to read about it to get updates on my knitting. I have almost finished the socks for my mom. They have been sitting in my knitting bag for months. I had other fun things to do. Like I made a paid of the Cigar gloves for by boyfriend. I made this in black with a blue stripe. I used a superwash dk weight yarn whose name I can't remember right now.
I made a cabled scarf for him as well that I'm just needing to block. Funny thing about that. The night I bound off I took it home and showed it to him and told him it was all done except it still needed to be blocked. Well being the smart ass that he is, he's also a third degree black belt, he pretended that the scarf was hitting him so that he could block it with his arm. If you aren't laughing at that I guess it was one of those you had to be there things.
I also went on a SEX two weeks ago and found a great little yarn shop down here in SLC called Soul Spun Yarns. They had a discount basket and I found 6 balls of pink yarn, all different types and textures, that I just had to buy to make a scarf for my new best friend Kaydee Lyn Bosted Cummings. And yes you have to say all 4 names.
As for the rest of my knitting. I haven't really done much on the projects I already had started. I will post pictures of the stuff that I have done in the next day or two.
Now on to the rest of my life. I have successfully moved down to SLC from Logan and have been living down here for a little over 4 months now. I have settled into my job without any problems. I got my 90 day raise just 2 weeks late but that was my own fault. My job is one of those I hate it and I love it jobs. I hat it because I get bitched at all day every day, but I love it because I'm actually able to do something for the people that have valid complaints.
I'm still with Troy. I love him more than I've ever loved anyone else. Most especially my last boyfriend. But we won't go into that again. If you're a frequent reader of my blog you've already heard all about that.
It's pretty much a given that Troy and I will eventually get married. It's not a question of if but of when. He has this silly rule that we have to be together for a year and a day without my wanting to leave and without him wanting to bury me in the backyard. Less than 5 months to go for that. With the exception of his ex-wife I'm the longest relationship he's had. At least I think I am. He's told me on several occasions that he loves me more than anyone else ever. God, now I'm getting all sappy. Can you tell I'm in love?
We still live with the roommates. The reason for that is because at the current moment I am the only source of income. He's working on getting back into teaching Martial Arts. It's going to be a couple of months for that as he hasn't done it in 7 years and they have reorganized how things work within the company. He has to relearn a lot of the stuff that he already knows because they have changed the system that they used before.
I'm still losing weight but haven't been to Weight Watchers since I moved down to SLC so I'm not sure exactly what I'm at now. I'll have to find an accurate scale and get myself weighed. Perhaps when I go to the doctor next week.
In case you're wondering I'm sick. I have another sinus infection, I think it's the third one this year perhaps more. I haven't been to the doctor yet as I can't afford it until my insurance kicks in on the first.
Other than that I don't think there's really anything else to be updated. I'll try to make sure that I post on a more regular basis but we all know that's probably not going to happen.
