Work is going circumstantially well. The news is starting to filter through that I am leaving. It is a little sad. Like I said, bittersweet. Today, one of the agents told me that me and Boss are like Batman and Robin, always together and a force to be reckoned with. Someone else pointed out that there are only 3 people in our office (out of 21) that had been there longer than me. That doesn't seem possible to me. I guess I didn't realize how people see me. It is kind of nice to hear people say they will miss me and what will they do without me. I know that a certain amount of this is lipservice but I know, too, that there is some sincerity tossed it. I have so many loose ends to tie up.
Perhaps I should have mentioned before now but I would really love to receive this:
for Christmas. I don't think I will because I have been so swamped that I didn't take the time to request them. Umm. The good news on the Christmas front: all of my wrapping is done except for my mother's clock and it is a beast so I am going to have to figure out a nice way to wrap it. My niece came over tonight and helped me wrap and we talked and sang sappy country songs. It was fun. I love my nieces and nephews. Such good kids. Whatever issues my sisters may have (or not have...hi sister!) they have wonderful, sweet, kind, loving, happy children. (and the youngest one even calls me his "wave-wit aunt" sometimes. I can't imagine who taught him to say that!!)
Back to the wishes....any variety of Addis. I only have a pair of 3s (16") and 7s (12"). But I love them. I am in search of projects that require these sizes because I want to use these needles.
Perhaps a skein or two of fancy yarn that I can't convince myself to buy...(Yes, I know, the Clip isn't all that expensive, comparatively, but I haven't brought myself to make a great big online yarn purchase. I am a real sucker for, you know, paying the bills.)
My birthday is the first of February. Maybe I will ask for an Elann gift certificate.
As a sidenote, if anyone knows a spinner in Northern California (let's say, within two hours of Modesto) or if such a spinner happens to stumble through here, please let me know. I am very interested in learning to spin but I have no idea what I am getting myself into. It is just that age-old knitterly longing.
