Expanded updates


Ok, I've been somewhat flooded with question marks after my list of highlights yesterday. I thought I would expand today. Mostly because I'm still boring and nothing exciting has happened to me lately!

~ Working after a week off sucks

Today was so freakin' slow, but I couldn't knit because the bigwigs of the company (like top of the food chain bigwigs) were in the warehouse today. But, it's almost like a long weekend, so I'm good.

~ Cozy is about 10 inches long

Cozy is now hovering around 15 inches, I watched the end of LOTR and all of Transformers yesterday. Which is a stupid movie BTW, but I got a lot of knitting done!

~ Have to go to a funeral next week

Remember awhile back I mentioned someone being terminal? Yeah, so I'm leaving work at noon on Thursday to go to a funeral. I'm not sad for Brian. He was sick a long time and fought so hard. I'm sad for those he leaves behind. All I have are happy memories.

~ Dog has been safe since her adventures last week

Unless you count being beat up by the cats. What is it about big dogs?

~ Totally got hit by a bat on my way to knitting last night (seriously)

So I was walking into the E&C on Whyte ave, and saw what I thought was a sparrow. It hit my arm and proceeded to hang upside down on the red phone booth while folding its wings in. Bats are awesome. Birds freak me out.

~ Spinning and dyeing this weekend

Bought a big-ass canning jar and a salad spinner at Chez Wally's World today. So excited!

~ Staying cool this weekend (30+ temps)

Booty shorts and lots of water.

~ That's all I got, I'm boring tonight. But I am starting to research my dream job

I want to be a Doula. Eventually becoming a midwife. This is something I've wanted ever since I was little. I have always been fascinated by pregnancy and childbirth. It's only recently that I've felt comfortable telling people "what I want to be when I grow up".

I love pregnant bellies (Hi J!) and grope them whenever I get permission. I refuse to be one of those people who acost pregnant women! The whole idea of actually growing a human being is amazing and overwhelming. And I'm just a bystander! I love reading pregnancy books and knowing whether or not the baby looks like a shrimp or a gummy bear. And seriously, there is absolutely nothing more amazing than that first cry.

Tonight will be for laundry, knitting, and watching the Spiderwick Chronicles with Dad. We're back to normal. Which is good. This house is small when 2/3 of the inhabitants aren't speaking.

I talked to my guy last night for a long time. Nothing special, told him my bat story. He's totally aware of the fact that I'm a dork. And a bit of a jackass. And he still wants me, which is pretty great.

And I better shut up now.

Happy weekend. Stay cool!

Hahahaha Now I have a totally different opinion of pregnancy-I find it alien and grotesque and creeeeepy :P ha ha ha ha ha But I know my opinion is not shared by a lot of people ;) And I still like knitting for babies-as I get older more and more of my friends are having them.
There's another girl on my Rav friend's list you should check out-her name is Spindelicious. I read her blog too and she's int he process of becoming a midwife and she mainly blogs about that. Lots of book and documentary info-could help you out with that!
