Knittin' Kittens...

Hi all, I am here, although swamped. I'll post more about knitting progress, job, etc later. Today in our newspaper was a story about the ladies that made all the scarves for our kids for the Soaring Eagles Project and a few quotes from me. I thought you might enjoy it.

I have been knitting...

With Mother's Day and all, I did nothing but knitting for the entire week, well that and work. I ended up making 3 pairs of fuzzy feet for Mr. Outdoor's mom and grandmothers. And then I made 6 MD dishcloths for everyone else. It's nice to not have something I HAVE to do. Well, I take that back I'm working on a hat, booties and sweater for next door neighbor's impending baby girl. They are due sometime next week.
I thought that everything would be much more relaxed now that I have a new job and all, but I was wrong. It's been a rough week at work. Only 12 more school days left (with kids). It can't be done fast enough. LOL. Thanks for all the well wishes and such! I appreciated your comments all so much!

I'm bringin' sexy back...

well...not really, but I'm back. It's been a trying few weeks. The job interviews (5 1st interviews and 3 2nd interviews) were exhausting and really hard on my family with me being gone a lot. Things here at school have been stressful and completely absurd and add to that a gallon of family drama. But I'm better and I'm happy because .......

I will be teaching 5th grade in a school very similar to the one I'm at now, but the difference is that it is only 5 miles away from home ....ROUND TRIP!
I'll have the same schedule as my own children, but it will also be nice because I'll still be with the kids of kids that I yearn to teach! I can't wait. Mr. Outdoors is downright giddy. I'm pretty sure that is has to do with the fact that after June 1st I won't have a monthly gasoline bill around $500-550 a month! LOL.
I'm in deadline territory with my knitting. There are scads of birthday and Mother's Day knitting to be done this week!

Not a drop of knitting...

Last week there was lots of intention, but not a drop of knitting. I was all geared up for the Job Fair on Friday. I came, I saw, I got 5 interviews. The 1st interview was on Monday and it went pretty good. The 2nd interview was yesterday and it went better. I know that I will not know about any of the interviews until the end of next week at the earliest. I'm trying to give all of the schools (in my town) a fair chance. The stress has been getting to me though, so yesterday I MADE myself knit and I felt so much better. Today is the only day that I don't have an interview so it's homecooking for dinner and a clean house for the kids.

Hopefully I'll have some pictures for you, but until then, Here is a peek of what we did Sunday.
