Welcome February & a Meme!


I’ve been so bad, I don’t even know why I’m bothering to write about it in this post.  *sob*  I’m getting my feet on the street in the morning, though – I am determined!  If I can just manage to get to bed at a reasonable hour…

Welcome February & a Meme!

Yay, it’s February!  Time for income tax refunds and the annual bonus from work.  I’d mention my raise, but it is SO not worth mentioning.  Budgets being slashed to the bare minimum & all that.  I’m just lucky I have a job, right?!  ;)  Anyway, I’ve got my taxes done & e-filed.  I’ll be able to finally fix the air conditioning at home & the transmission in my car.  With my annual bonus, I’m hoping to fix the home computer and maybe even get a new one for gaming.  It will be nice to have a computer available for each of us, seeing how we all spend so much time online.  There is always someone dancing about, hopping from foot to foot, saying “c’mon, hurry up, will you?  I need to get on Facebook & check my [insert farm, restaurant, island, whatever the latest game addiction is here]!!”

I’m making solid progress on my manlet’s birthday present.  Poor guy, he’ll get it about a month after his birthday.  *sigh*  But I’m pretty happy with how it’s working out – I think he’ll like it.  :)  I did take a break from it this weekend to knit up an adipose.  I’ve been wanting one for my cube at work for some time & now I have one!!  YAY!
