Hacked Off

And I am blue as well. My personal email account was hacked the other day. How awful is that. It is also embarrassing. I might be able to recover the account but I am not sure I want an email account that is susceptible to intrusion. I am getting used to the idea that all that information is lost. Well, I will know in 24 hours if I regain access to my email account.

Well, Only Boy got his license to drive today. I am happy for him and me but I am also nervous. I always feel nervous when my children are out on the roads. You hear and see so many scary accidents. *He will be fine, he will be fine, he will be fine, repeat from * until you believe it.

Okay, so the 'word of the year' is change and boy is it an appropriate word. Daughter #1 is not coming home this summer, Only Boy is working away from home, Daughter #2 is starting high school in the Fall and I am going back to school. I will quit my job in September and for the next 2 years I will live in chest waders and probably smell of fish. But I am really excited!

Well, I said my word for this year is Change. I am trying to go back to school. I already have a degree but I have not used it much. Now that the kids don't need so much from me, I have decided to update my degree and take a 2 year program in Fisheries Technology. I am on a waiting list to get into the program and I will know where I stand by June 1st. I sure hope I get in, I really don't want to wait another year. I cannot work another year. If I don't get into the program, maybe I will quit anyway and find another job. Oooooh, I hate waiting.

Yesterday I said I LOVED Bones. Today I say that I HATE thieves. I (we) work hard for my money and it pisses me off that someone else thinks nothing of stealing what I have. I am not usually a violent person but if faced with the person who violated me in that way.....well, I wouldn't trust myself. Losing a finger for the transgression is not such a bad idea.
I would gladly share, if asked. Don't steal. It isn't nice.

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Bones!!!.
I could so be a squint.

Not enough time

Well, there are so many wonderful things to do and so many necessary things to do (duh!).
I know this is not new but has been a recent, constant source of frustration.

I am reading a book that has inspired me to knit a Fair Isle sweater. I am on the hunt for the right project. Maybe I should design my own, hmmmm. An interesting idea. My mom gave me some money for my birthday. I want to purchase some software for designing sweaters. I will have to give this some thought. In the mean time, I need to look at some sweater books. Library website, here I come.

I just got a book from the library ( a wonderful institution of society btw) by Adrienne Martini by the title of Sweater Quest. I love this book, so far. She has an interesting tradition that I really like. Instead of making a new year resolution to live your life by or not, during the ensuing year, she picks a word to live by. Her current word is movement (for 2008). I think that I will do the same. It is very discouraging to make a resolution that will be forgotten by the end of the month of January. I will pick the word change. I have been thinking of this word for some time now and so it seems appropriate. So for 2011, I will embrace, plan for and otherwise expect changes. I sure hope they are good ones. Specifically, I want job change, body image change and time allocation changes. Wish me well :)

Long hiatus

Wow, it sure has been awhile since I have posted something, anything.
Quite a lot has changed in that time. I would like to use this space to share some of my thoughts as this appears to be rather private. No one that knows me really well would ever
be reading this so I can write what I would like without anything coming to light that
I might want to remain somewhat hidden (?) so to speak. How can anything put on the internet in a blog format really expected to be private.
Anyway, I'm back.
