after 3 months of nothing from me, here i am again!
you would think that with all of the alledged time i had over the summer that i would be more likely to write, but you would be wrong. it's ironic. with all of the time off i've had, i've never been busier.
but today, an urge to write came over me and i figured why not. (i'm also supposed to be sending out resumes so there's that.) whatever. hi!
so still not working. but i had a good summer. at the end of June, I went to visit a friend from college in Austin. we lived in the Dallas area from the ages of 4-6, and i had been to Houston, but Austin was new to me. I had a good time, and I visited some of the local yarn shops which was neat especially since i dragged my non-knitting friend with me. but you know what? it was freakin' hot. and honestly, give me a blizzard over 90 degree heat any day. i was definitely glad to come home. the highlight? seeing Eddie Izzard! so wonderfully hilarious, brilliant and handsome. Check him out if you've never heard of him. he is a delight.
Then at the beginning of August, we headed off to France to visit my dad. my dad is 83 now and since my mother passed away 2 years ago, he's been a little off his game. it's age, yes, but my mother gave him a purpose, even if it was hiding from her (my mother was a bit high maintenance to say the least) and so it's a little sad to see him. but he's doing ok and his health is good. getting old sucks.
and then no sooner had we come back from France, i followed J on a work trip to Chicago. I'd never been so I was pretty excited. And I really loved it. living in Boston for as long as i have, i forget how puny it really is. so chicago's size was a bit of a surprise.
and now it's september. and i'm on the job hunt. what a drag. but i feel good about the outcome. i've sent out several resumes. and i try to send out a couple at least every day. and then i wait. and wait. i mean, i'm awesome! CAN'T YOU TELL?
ok that's it for now.
