Books Books and more Books

it seems all i've been doing this month is reading.

I've finished 12 books this month already, almost 13. I got a nook two weeks ago and it's eating my soul!

I think part of the problem is also that i'm soooooo tired by the time i have a minute to knit because of the bratling and work.

I'm sure i'll adjust soon, seeing as how i get to start working on a project for my stalkee in the Halloween Vampire Swap on Ravelry. /cheer

I'm Employed!

So a couple weeks ago i got hired for JoAnn Fabrics, to work during season (but i've been told i have a fairly good chance of staying on after season is over). I worked yesterday (friday) and trained at the cutting table. They asked me when i went in to work today for a craft event!

Grandparent's Day!

so i got a couple more hours this week, and got to do crafted with little kids, it was so fun.

kaeley came in with Grandma Pam and made one too =D

though she didn't want to make it FOR grandma, it's hanging on the wall above her bed.

Ross said yesterday that my getting a job at JoAnns is like him getting a job at a Comic shop, the perfect job. I agree, it's not easy, but it's fun, and i'm just happy to be working again, even if it is only part time!

New (Used) Car

It's one of those things, just when everything starts to go right, something must go horribly wrong.

Last wednesday my car died, Eddie said when he looked at it that it's nothing major, but he would replace the engine. gak...that's nothing major???

so mom and i spend all weekend looking at cars, i do research, spelunk craigslist, vehix, the palm beach post classified. And i find a PT Cruiser i love! omg do i love.

Then Sunday mom goes to the Toyota dealership without me and buys a 2002 Buick Century. Now, i know i'm not supposed to look a gift horse in the mouth. It's a nice car, really. but it's not me, i hate it, it's huge, i didn't like driving mom's Taurus, why would i want to drive a tank? and mom's solution? i can drive her dinky ass 2-door Alero and she'll drive the Buick.

on the upside, the a/c works, on the downside, the radio doesn't. and all used cars are "as is"....blah.

at least kae isn't sick anymore, and i start work on friday
