So, I could not think of a better title for this blog post. It has been so long since I have posted, I haven’t had time to keep everything updated. Work has been super busy, but you know, orders get backed up when you’re down for a month because on an explosion. I was happy with 36-48 hours a week until I got a taste of that 72 hour paycheck. It almost makes being absolutely exhausted worth it. Haha.
My roommates finally sold their house, which is so awesome! The one they are building should be done in a few months and I am excited to move in. I have never lived in a new construction before. I know that doesn’t seem like anything to anyone else but me, but I think it’s so cool to be the first people to live in a house. You don’t find out about the crazy stuff later, because there isn’t any.
I have not been sleeping a lot lately. And when I do sleep all I have is nightmares. So that’s really awful. Hopefully once life calms back down again, they will stop and I can get some real sleep. I’ve considered getting a FitBit to measure the quality of my sleep, because obviously when I’m asleep I can’t monitor myself. I’m still looking into it.
The Sherlock blanket is still in foundation rows. I’ve frogged it twice already, and I will not do it a third time. It’s a great graph, it just took me forever to figure out to achieve color changes in the foundation row. I’ve since given up on that and I am doing rows of dark brown and then I’ll start the color changes. It’s not the way I want to do it, but I’ve come up with a way to make it more sophisticated without it falling apart on me.
I am helping Flathead High School with their Alice In Wonderland play this year. My roommate is directing and she asked if I would help. my response was “Me, children, and sewing machines… life lessons will be learned.” The wording may be changed just a little bit because I couldn’t find then text. I have faith that they will do very well. Hopefully I have all the days off I’m scheduled to have off so I can get this show on the road (but ooooooooh, those 72 hour paychecks).
Oh, on the subject of work. I have been offered (and I accepted) a permanent full time position at Plum Creek. Once everything goes through, I will officially be a 4th generation Plum Creek employee. That is a huge deal for me, and I think everyone in my family is proud of me.
With helping out at the school and working all the time, I’m going to be very busy. I’m going to start prop building on the side for for cosplayers too. That’s still in the process of processing. I don’t think I’d be able to do anything to huge (space, funds, and stuff) but I went a little crazy on Pinterest with props and cosplay ideas. If I could do any costume right now it would be Nightengale Armor from Skyrim. I love the way it looks. BUT! To the shower with me!
See you guys later 🙂
