So, I took a mental health day today. I woke up with a migraine so bad that it would have been difficult to drive to work. After I slept it away almost all the way, I did laundry and cleaned all day. My room kind of looks like a filing cabinet exploded, but whatever.

Then the mail came and I was very surprised to get two presents!!  Warning: Twilight Sock Club Spoiler under the cut… (more…)


Mail Call and WI March 13, 2008

Today’s Mail:

  • My March Twilight Sock Club from Knit Me Up!  – It’s sooo pretty, too bad I’ve barely started the Feb. one.  I’ll post pics soon.
  • A school bill for $40.  Not too bad, but it’s one of three, so they add up.
  • 2 coupons for NY & Co. that I’m going to throw away now so I’m not tempted by them.
  • A notice from the IRS telling me all about the Economic Stimulus!

I weighed in today and I was up 0.8 lbs.  I kind of expected it after last week’s debauchery, but still, its no fun.  Next week will be better cause I’ve been going to the gym tons and I’m pretty sure my shin splints are gone so I can get back on track with the C25K program.  I did Week 2, Run 3 (for the second or third time) today and loved it.  Too bad my eye candy wasn’t there tonight.  There’s a boy I totally ogle while I work out.  He’s just so pretty.

Now, I’m really having a problem.  I have till April 1st to decide whether or not to renew my Twilight Sock Club membership for another 3 months.  Its another $90 and I’m not really supposed to be spending money.  But, I really like this yarn and its such a fun club and the patterns are great, so I really want to renew it!  I really have to think about this one.  If I do stay in, I will be on a very strict yarn diet.  Technically, I’m supposed to be on one of those now, but… things happen… like me buying more yarn…

Ok, I have to go work on the baby blanket.  I’m so almost done!!

This is what I see when I look up from my desk:

Stash and Buddha

it makes me giggle a little bit…

Also, I got this in the mail today and it makes me very very VERY happy:

SparklyLoves' Lioness Rampant

yum. I can’t wait to spin it up.

AND I ordered a soft top for my Jeep today.
(No complaining about work today, aren’t you proud?)
