My schedule at work got a little screwed up this week, so I get today off! Whoo Hoo! A nice, long weekend!
I have not had a chance to fill you in yet, but I left my job a month ago…4 weeks ago to be exact. It was retail, so I was closing the store every night and working every weekend and holiday. The problem was this: no time to take care of my family! Now, I know I need a job, but I don’t need one THAT bad! My poor husband was making dinner every night and was alone on the weekends…not to mention I missed church consistently because I was scheduled to open and close every Sunday. So, I saw an ad for an Activities Aide at a local nursing home and emailed my resume. I got an interview the very next day! I love the job, love the residents and only work three days a week 9am – 5pm, so I can take care of my family, keep my husband company nights and weekends and get to church every Sunday. Win -Win!
With that being said, I have time for fun today! Guess what I plan on doing? Clicking my needles together! Here is a peek at what I have been working on:
I apologize for the crappy iPhone pictures…I still have an iPhone 4. Waiting for my upgrade in February! Anyway, it is a lace top that I am knitting as a test knit for the designer. It is to be completed by January 31 and I surely hope I get it done! Work keeps getting in the way!
Another crappy picture, the scarf was intended to be knitted during the month of December to be finished Christmas Eve Day. Yea, right! I’m still on Day 7! Is is knit from alpaca lace yarn. Love it so far and can’t wait till it’s done…hopefully before next Christmas!
What are you working on over the weekend?
