Forget Bridezilla it was more like Maid of Honor-zilla

So today was my friend's wedding. Best friends in high school that drifted apart and are now back together but in my mind a bit strained over before. Anyway, today was her wedding and it was a fabulous event save for the maid of honor. She is a sweet girl but is very young and has never been in a wedding before and had no idea the duties of being a maid of honor. And although she asked she rarely liked the answers. Made for a difficult few weeks in planning this event but all in all it was a beautiful day, my friend looked spectacular and it went off without a hitch.

On the knitting front I am attacking a few projects, which seems to be my trend. I would love to be a monogamous knitter but the satisfaction I get from finishing 6 projects in one week cant be ignored :-) Of course it takes 6 weeks or more to get there but I get there! I am finishing the Goddess Knits (check her stuff out) Spring Mystery Shawl and just started her Anniversary Shawl. Also finishing up a baby cardiagn (a for the heck of it one), a pair of fingerless mitts out of my first handspun, socks for my lil man and slippers for a girl at work. Oh and a sweater for my sister for Christmas, plus sachets for everyone else's Christmas presents. I dont think I have any sachets on the needles at this point but thats something I need to get crackin on :-)

Also working on my niece's bedroom set for her 2nd birthday present. She is getting sheets, shams, pillow cases and throw pillows in a pink John Deere print that is adorable. Her whole room is being done in this print. :-)

I think that is most of my overwhelming pile of projects. Most everything else is waiting for me to catch up with my self. Nothing else goes onn the needles until stuff is finished I swear!

Mystery Shawls and No Water

So Mr MicroManage was the supervisor again today but I succeeded in avoiding him most of the day and got my stuff done, including my socializing. :-) Works for me!

I came home to the unpleasantness of no water but it seems they fixed that and the karma gods have bestowed my mystery shawl clues upon me early in return. And yes I said clues. Almost done with the first KAL and the second starts now. Hopin I can keep up with both.

Plannin on knittin my weekend away, and maybe spinnin some too :-)

My First Blog

Hi all! I am somewhat new to bloggin although the idea has been kickin around in my head forever :-) Just to begin I am a single mom to one fabulous (most of the time) little boy who is the center of my world. My paying job is as a paramedic in a town in Northern CT. I love my job and more importantly the wonderful people I work with. Today the people I work for are leaving a bit to be desired. A little more background I am currently on light duty after shoulder surgery from a work related injury. I am going crazy!! I spend my day doing errands and ducking my supervisors who live to micromanage. Thats the issue today. I am well aware of the daily tasks that need to be performed in my light duty role as I have been doing them for three weeks now and still I was given a verbal list today from the on duty supervisor. A bit frustrating to say the least. Trying my best to not take it personally and just move on with my day but its tough I wont lie.
