Oh dear goodness

So I have not been blogging much lately. I try to pop in and out....and as excited as I am about Ravelry, I just can't seem to find the time to get in there. All in all I am not all that excited by anything. I am a good fake, I paste a smile on and pretend all is well, when in reality things pretty much suck.

Don't get me wrong things COULD be worse. John got a job at the school as the maintenance man. It is part time 10-20 hours a week. It is a start. There is rumor that the people who have been doing UPS on island are getting done, so he called about that, he may have gotten some wee little jobs for an older lady who lives on the mainland but has a house here. Things aren't AS grim as they were. But here we sit with a thousand a month mortgage amoung the other normal bills, and I am scared $h!tl&$$! The next month will tell.

Meanwhile life goes on. The people who have the job now and thier family talk to us as though they did nothing wrong, when as it turns out they knew 2 weeks before we did they were going to can John.

OH FREAKING WELL. See this is why I haven't been blogging lately. BAH!!

On craft news. I have been kniting, but I hav also been sewing!! These are jammies I am making for the boys. I am getting a pair for both Bud and Bret out of each fabric! They are too cute!

I had forgotten how much I liked sewing! I really enjoy the whole process. I just have no place to leave it set up......sewing machines and curious little fingers are bad news!

Bret is slowly discovering that temper tantrums get him NO WHERE! In fact I find them quite funny!! John captured this one. He shut the gate between the kitchen and the dining room and Bret got his nose QUITE out of joint!

And he just kept on a crying!

Look at those eyes......this is the "hey wait a second I have an audience.....better put the pleadingly cute face on" still didn't magically open the gate for him!

Heh. Captain Adventure STILL tries the temper tantrum to get his way. Even though it has never yet worked - he still puts it on to see if maybe, THIS TIME, it will.

Hang in there!! I hate these kinds of episodes - we've had a couple through the years with one or both of us unemployed when both of us really, REALLY needed to be working. They suck, mightily - but they do pass. I'll be holding all kinds of good thoughts for you. Good, "and then, he got a better job with more money and better benefits and we went nyah-nyah and then I bought the Options needles I wanted" thoughts. :)

Keep the faith. Everything will work out. I know, it's easy to say from hundreds of miles away, but I really do believe that there is a reason for everything we go through, and things will get better. I have to believe that. If I didn't, I'd go crazy.
