AAAH The Weekend and Then Some

Well dear friends, it has been a crazy week or so and I haven't been able to get anywhere near my blog until today.
To review: November 30th was my last day at my old job. It was crazy and fun. I was still trying to train my replacement but some things can only be experienced and I'm sure she will be fine. My co-workers and I went to lunch and they gave me a nice framed collage of funny pictures of all of them. And a $50 gift certificate to Knitting Sisters . A fellow knitter in the office was in charge of that and it was a wonderful thought! I can't wait to use it!
That weekend was a whirlwind of activity finishing up the Christmas shopping etc. Monday I started my new job and had some sort of orientation or meeting the first three days so didn't actually get to spend a full eight hours in the office until Thursday. But, I can't tell you how relaxed I am now with this new job. No stress, able to sleep again, it is wonderful.

Yesterday I mailed the last of my packages that had to be anywhere by a deadline and got my hair cut, I had wanted to do that before I started the job but just didn't have time. And I went to my usual girl who cuts it just the way I like it and she and I got to talking while she was cutting my hair and bam! Cut way shorter than I wanted it, I mean really. It isn't bad, but it is just sort of shockingly short, more of a summer time cut than winter. But, it is only hair it will grow back and in a week it won't look so bad.

I haven't even put up my tree or decorations yet, but I plan to go to the attic today and decide what needs to be brought down. I'm not sure I will go all they way this year since I have waited so long to decorate (two weeks behind my normal decorating schedule).

All this week it has been cold in the low 30s what you might expect for December, but today it is supposed to be in teh 60s and near 70 tomorrow.

In knitting news I have completed two spa sets, one in a yellow and blue colorway and one in yellow. I found some lovely lavendar soaps to fill the soap bags with.

I have also regrouped on the scarf that was plaguing me and figured out a nice unique pattern for it and will have that finished today. I will post pictures when it is done.

Happy knitting!

Glad your new job is going well so far. AND glad you're able to sleep.

That was a wonderful gift from your old co-workers!

Congrats on starting the new job! At least you miss the old co-workers, if not the old job. The spa set looks so cute and will be perfect with a nice smelly soap!
