I'm So Excited......

And I just can't hide it. I got a new computer from work. But it is a laptop! So I get to bring it home. I am going to go and play with it. i should be knitting! Maybe I will do some of that too. I also am going out of town this weekend and I should pack. Too many things to do. Hope you all have a good weekend.

I don't have much knitting to post about. I am really busy with work. I am excited about this weekend though. I am going home for a baby shower for my sister. I am loking forward to seeing everyone. I also had jury duty this week. I was called on a panel, but not chosen to sit on the jury. I didn't think I would be chosen. There were injuries involved with the case, and as a doctor, I am not someone that they would want on the jury. Oh well, I have to many other things to do this week.

Otherwise, life continues to move along. I struggle with knowing why I am doing what I am doing with my life. Not my job. I do love what I do. But, why am I here in St. Louis? Where should I go when I finish? I know I am here for work, but I don't know why I am here from a personal standpoint. It is a struggle some days. Probably more than you all want to know.

Happy Knitting.

May the force be with you

I got home today and found a card in the mail from my SP. She has been great, more than I can say for myself. And it is always nice to actually get some correspondence in mail, instead of just bills and all of the junk that I get. I think I could have refinanced my house 200 times in the last years. Oh well enough of that.

The card had 3 great flowery book marks in it! And this cut out from the paper .

She said she thought of me when she saw it. (And I must give credit to the authors, not to impinge on any copyright) And I agree with Kenobi, although if you choose to go it alone, that is okay too.

Anyway, thanks SP.

Not much new knitting news. I did finish the first sleeve on my baby cardigan, and I have joined it with the body. I finished the edging on the second sleeve, and hopefully that will go quickly. But I have been really busy with things for work, so not much time for knitting. Let's just say that I am glad that you all are grateful that OB/GYN's have to be board certified, but the preparation to actually take the test (and that is not the studying part) is a pain in the neck. I better get back to it. Hope all are well.

I'm a bag blogger...

.... and a bad secret pal. My package to go to my pal is sitting in my car waiting to be shipped. And I haven't posted any pics of what I got from my pal. So, here is the lovely sock yarn that I got a while ago.

I love it (Sam likes it too). I just have to get through this baby sweater and then I can knit some socks. I really love the green hand-dyed. And the others are great too. I'll have to find a good pattern.

Things are going well with the baby sweater. I'm half way finished with the first sleeve. Then once I finish the sleeves, it will be the yoke. The nice thing about this sweater is there is no seaming. I am excited about that.

Well, I think I might get some knitting done. I am going to have to work this weekend, so I think I'll get something done right now. More later.

I haven't been doing much knitting lately. I am working on my baby sweater, but I have been really busy at work. No excuse, I know. But I amheaded to Miami this weekend! So hopefully I will be able to knit while I am there.

But I am so excited, cause I won Cara's contest. She asked what our favorite love songs were. Hard to pick a love song, when you haven't been in love for a long time (I won't actually mention how long it has been. But let me just say, I wasn't yet delivering babies when I was last in love, and I have been doing that for quite a while now). I picked "let's stay together" by Al Green. I thought that was fitting. And I WON! I have some yarn and cards headed my way. I am very excited, especially about the cards. Her pictures are so great and I had thought about buying some anyway. Well, I need to finish getting ready for my trip.

Have a good weekend.
