Due to recent events, it looks as if I won't be working in the office anymore. Yesterday's post would have been a major rant, but I never got a chance to write it. In a nut shell, I'm being given more responsibility and they are cutting my salary by $12.50. When I questioned it, one of the reasons I was told was that the new salary was a nice round number.
So after talking with the IO, I am leaving. This of course will add MORE financial issues to our life, but it's pushing the IO to get serious abt going back into computers. He promises to send out 5 resumes this wknd. Of course there are no guarantees, but the programming language he deals with is in high demand for people so I'm hoping that it wont take too long for him to be hired.
I plan on giving them 2 weeks, but with me being back for only 2 weeks, I'm not sure if they will even have me stay past Monday. So even though I won't be bringing in money and it will be THAT much harder financially, it's amazing how much better I feel!!
On a more fiberly note, I've been knitting socks!
These are some baby socks that I'm knitting up for Children in Common. They are looking for 200 pairs of socks by the end of the month, and with almost 700 people on the Yahoo group, we have a pretty good shot of making it. I used THIS pattern. Using size 7 dpns with worsted weight wool makes for a quick sock!! I can cast on at 8pm and be done with it by 10pm!! I *may* do another pair in tan, but not sure yet. Either way, I do plan on Kool-Aid dyeing these two pairs.
And now that I will no longer have to schlep to an office, I will be able to get the house back in some kind of order and MAYBE find that baby pattern book. Or cast on for another baby outfit, which means it will surely show up then!!
