WOW, it's over

I can't believe my glorious time off is over. I have found and accepted a new job with less responsibility, celebrated a well-deserved Christmas in February with my family, went to Daytona for speedweeks 2 times in 3 days and turned another year older. Holy cow. Now, tomorrow, I have to drag to a job I have grown to dislike tremendously, awaiting the day I can tell them "I quit". The important folks (aka, those closest to me) know, but others have only heard rumors. The reasoning for giving up the ghost are:

1.)Not that driven to succeed. Just give me what I need to sustain

2.)Being home after 8 1/2 hours is a good thing.

3.) Being responsible for my work only is a GREAT thing

4.) did I mention #1?

5.) More time for Beth and family and things I enjoy, rather than the dread of a job I despise and see no point to other than no one else will do it.

6.) Again, see #1

7.) #5 leads to more time to crochet! See picture:

This is a blanket I am crocheting for my new great niece. All I need is 10 more rows and about 25 ladybugs. Madelyn's theme is ladybugs. I hope she enjoys this blanket more than her uncle Mike liked the first thing I ever crocheted...a blanket for him that he promptly threw on the ground......Boys!

Anyhow, I hope to have more time in the VERY NEAR future to keep up with my blog. and my friends. and most importantly, my family!

Such a beautiful blanket. This kind of project can't shut up those knitting snubs that say "crochet doesn't give you the same fabric knitting does"
This blanket can hold its own against any knitted blanket!
