As I wrote the title to this post I totally went "Holy Crap, it's Wednesday already... and Wednesday is almost over."
But I guess 50+ hour work weeks will do that to you. But I'm not complaining (loudly or even that much), there are some definite perks:
1) The money of course, which will include at least 10 hours of overtime at time and a half. It almost makes me want to stop all Christmas knitting and go to the mall. Then I remember my mountain of debt and pick the needles back up.
2)It finally gives me a chance to show the bosses that my editor is not the only person in the building who can do this job - something I hope they will remember if promotion time ever rolls around.
3) The companies are sending in samples for our gift guides - and they are mine all mine! I am currently polishing off a box of chocolate - but seriously, what self respecting box of chocolates only has nine morsels in it? Nine isn't enough to last five minutes. Give me Pot o' Gold any day!
Tonight I made a very small amount of sock knitting progress at Job #2 - I finished the heel on the maroon sock. I should have finished more, but I was having issues. Sometimes heels just fly for me, other times, like tonight, I screw up every other row. I drop stitches, knit them together, pick up stitches that aren't really stitches, then my slips and knits don't line up. I ripped back several times but by the time 9 pm rolled around it was done and I'm now working on decreasing for the gusset - PHEW!
I don't have pictures because my camera is a total piece of crap and won't focus unless you're 10 feet away from you subject - I have a feeling some of that overtime will be going to a new camera.
Well that's it for now, it's off for a bath, pajamas, a book and some serious kitty snuggle time.
She's getting impatient - can't you tell?
