Hi! I hope everyone is doing well. Itís been a long time since the last time I stopped by.

I started a new job recently and havenít even have time to knit. For those of you who didnít know, I was working as a teacher assistant at the school where my son goes. Two weeks after I got hired, they had to displaced me because, according to CMS, there were too many staff and not enough students. Anyway, the thing is that I was transferred to another school, another great school. The school works very different. Instead of working in one classroom all day, I go to about 9 classes per day; all different grade levels. Itís good but Iím still trying to adjust to the new routine and by the time I get home Iím too tired to knit or do anything else. Well, I still have to do my homework. Iím basically helping the kids with math and literacy and since I donít remember the last time I took a math class, I have to do the homework as well to refresh my memory.

Unfortunately, I had to give up my knitting club at the other school. I didnít want to give that up but my schedule wouldnít allowed me to continue it. The good thing is that I convinced my friend and assistants to keep it, at least until the end of the school year. Yeah!!! During the holidays, we donated over 70 baby hats to the Carolina Medical Center in Pineville. !!!

Also, I have been really busy at home. Remember my puppy? Well, he is huge now and he is destroying everything. We took a whole weekend to finish putting the fence in our backyard so we can give him more freedom during the day. It really helps him to burn some energy but it doesnít really help in keeping the house clean.

Last weekend, one of the toilets was running all night and we didnít realized that until like 1:45 AM. The first floor was flooded. At that time, my husband and I started taking water out and mopping the floor. It was not a pretty picture. Our wood floor got ruined a little bit. It lost the gloss.

Plans for the weekend? Iím going to try to do my car inspection first thing in the morning. It was due in October. After that, we are going the Scholastics in Huntersville. My son wants to ride the train also. At some point, I have to go grocery shopping and clean the house. On Sunday, Iím taking my son to a birthday party. AndÖI think thatís it for the weekend.

Ok, I think this is it for now. Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Doodknitwit, that's a LOT of states to keep up with. OMG!

I used to be an insurance agent, so I know exactly how much work you're doing.

Wow! Dooknitwit, how do you keep track of insurance laws for all those states?
shandeh, it was really nice talking to you yesterday. Thank you for checking on me.
Well, I didn't get to do the car inspection yesterday. Didn't ride the train either. Today, I didn't feel like going to that birthday party with my son so I told my husband to take him. I'm just home...chilling. The house is a complete mess but I don't care. I don't feel like doing anything.
My husband is going to go graocery shopping later on. Then, we'll both clean up a little bit tonight. It's more fun to clean when you have company .
I probably won't get online until next weekend. So...have a wonderful week!!!

I wish I could be there, Laura!

Tomorrow (Saturday, January 19th), some of us from Ravelry are planning on getting together at Dilworth Coffeehouse in Mint Hill. We're planning on meeting at 2:00, weather permitting.

Here's a map: http://www.jiwire.com/wi-fi-wireless...se-1251403.htm

I hope to see some of you there!
