Ok, Mr Yarn come home now!

Yesterday was one of those days that you think that cosmic forces were against you. I got home from having a great dinner with Lori to find that the refrigerator and some of the lights were out. I guess something happened to the circuit breaker. Now I am no whimp. I lived alone for years, but it sucked. I went to the breaker box in the dark to try to find the answer. No luck. So, I had to drag out an extension cord to plug the refrig into another outlet. Fun.

Enough whinning. I turned on the TV to see the destruction of the hurricane. I sat there emotional and helpless. My heart breaks for all those people. I have no real reason to complain.

So, I finished the main part of the sweater that I am making for a friend. As irony is my witness, I can't upload the picture. Flickr won't let me this morning.

So, I am going to put a paperbag on my head and go into the shop. Pray for me that I don't stab myself with knitting needles.

Oh yeah, and I got off my tush and posted a job opening at the shop on Craigslist. Anyone know of anyone that wants a job in a yarn shop? Fun place.

Janis- remind me to yell you the story of my first night alone, after my husband & I seperated... talk about cosmic forces kicking your butt!!
And I still feel stupid that I didn't ask you if you were hiring before I got a job elsewhere. I would love to help out, & fill in wherever you need it.
I am such a dope, ha ha. :' )

You aren't the dope, *I* am. I should have been telling people that I am hiring. I was just sort of lazy during the summer because that is when it is slow. Thanks for the offer. I will most likely take you up on it!

I would damn near kill to come work for you right now as my job completely sucks ass and I can't even talk about it on my blog because my fucktard boss reads the damn thing. But alas, I don't want to move and I don't think the DH does either. So enough of my whining. But I feel your pain and am sharing in the cosmic shittiness of the week. Perhaps we need an exorcism, complete with plenty of tequila to banish the evil spirits.

OK, I am on my way home tomorrow. I will take care of you :)

Ah, man...if you could erase the Sunnyvale-to-Alameda traffic I'd totally be your employee. Doh.

I'm in! Well, if you don't mind me being sort of late some days. Seeing it's like um, a couple of days' drive ...

I can't believe Mr. Yarn posted on your blog! I love Mr. Yarn! I miss him too!
