Who's Bright Idea Was This?

So two weeks ago the managing entities at my work decided that my co-worker was not working fast enough and gave me a VERY large chunk of her work load (she is supposed to be my supervisor). I am working my large tooshie off. Putting in just a bit of OT and I am very tired.

I guess our department is still not working "efficiently". I have no clue how I get my work in and out of my desk within the same day most of the time it within hours of getting the work (I do pre-press for a printing company). So our oh so smart production manager downstairs thinks that it is a good idea for him to sit with us on monday and tuesday and just "observe" what we do.

He said he is going to have us talk him through every thing we are doing. Fine. Whatever. I can do that. Of course there is a problem though.......this guy NEVER shuts up! He will explain one little thing 500 ways to Sunday. And he spits when he talks AND he moves his arms all the time. The running joke is that if he was drowning all he would have to do is talk to stay afloat.

I have decided now that I am upping my dose of Zoloft next week.

Marathon Knitting

Ok I need to knit up a few easter gifts for my kiddos fast! I conveniently get paid the day after easter....nice! But hey they are little they will love little plush hand knit gifts like....

I think Jake would like a few more rattles. Karen lovingly made him a few a while back I could add to his collection.

And for Riley I am going to make her a few sea creatures and a few dinos.

So yet again the Wild Stripes baby blanket will be put on hold. :) But..... during lunch today I sewed up the sides of my Rowan purse that I started back in October. I blocked it last night and it was dry when I went home for lunch. So maybe this weekend I will sew in the lining if I am really good about getting projects done.

Ok I guess I will get back to work then when I go home bury myself in yarn.

Finally a Finished Project!

I know my blog has been pretty boring lately. I have been super busy with work life and freelance life and just life that blogging has been slow. Don't worry I am still reading blogs though. I would like to formally thank my angel secret pal. You were great! I need to shoot you an email. Please send me your blog address. And also thank my secret pal Aileen for loving everything I sent her. Everyone should check out her blog she is very talented. I finished my Odessa hat today. This is the second time I knit it up. I wasn't happy with my first attempt. I made a mistake and I didn't make the ribbing on the bottom long enough for my comfort level. This one fits perfectly!
