Something Old, Something New

Lately (more like in the last 6 months), I havn't really felt up to doing, well, anything. I seem to be a bit of a couch potato. I havn't really done any cleaning around the house other than the dishes and the laundry, and I have gained weight because of this. Sometimes I think it might be because I stopped going to the gym, but then I also stopped my medication too. So maybe that is why. I dont know.

I want to buy a Wii Fit to try and get me back into the swing of things. But it seems anywhere I go they do not have any in stock. I have called walmart, target, and checked out EB games. I need to call Meijer, but my phone is low on battery and I do not want to get the charger. Maybe I will just go out there.

Besides doing nothing, I have not done any crafting either. Except for swaps on craftster. But I feel that I have even been half-assing those, which is not a gooo thing. I will not allow myself to sign up for anymore. I have already backed out of two I am in. I am in one more that is due by 6/23. I think I will be able to do this one.

I have been buying some of Lily Gos patterns from her etsy. I really like the patterns I have bought. I have bought the Orchid, Empire, and Dahlia crochet and knit tops. If you go to her blog you can see all of the other things she has made. I really look up to this woman with all she has accomplished and she has 2 children!

Last year I bought some yarn from I was going to make this sweater from with the yarn, but now I think I want to make Lily Go's Orchid crochet top with the yarn. It's the right weight, and I've got plenty of it. I bought the yarn in the light green (I think it is grass), and the dark green, called Pine. I've got 2 balls of pine and 7 of grass. I think I've got 7 of grass. But nonetheless I have got enough yarn for this. And I know it is wool, but I'm sure by the time I'm done it will be wintertime.

Mooooving on to some other subjects.. I feel like I'm on the verge of getting fired. I have gotten and verbal, written, and suspension warning from my job. Except when my supervisor gave me the suspension, she said she was going actually going to suspend me. You are supposed to have from 1-3 days off when you get suspended. But so I WANTED time off, so I called in the next day. And then when I came back the next day, they gave me a verbal warning for inadaquet attendance. This is some BS. I think they're all out to get me anyway. Poo on them. So I want to try and find another job. I have an interview at 5 on tuesday. Wish me luck.

This summer I have decided not to take any classes at Parkland College. I will take some this fall. I just have to decide what I want. I've got about 25 credits with this college, and will need 60 in order to graduate with a degree in general studies. I think this fall I will take the speech class and an elective (maybe a psychology or philosophy class). I have already completed the english requirements. When I finish with my degree in general studies I want to take an online course to become a Pharmacy Technician. There are about 5 online schools that offer this program. I just have to decide which one I want to take.

Ok, well I have been sitting here for about 2 hours. Maybe I should go and find a Wii Fit somewhere, or find my knitpicks yarn and start up on the Orchid crochet top.

p.s. I hope to start writing in here more often. It has been over a year since I posted the yarn I bought from etsy, which, surprise, I have not used yet.
