Within an hour of picking up Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince M and I became non-smokers! So, even though David Sedaris may be disappointed (as he signed his book to us "nobody likes a quitter") we have made the plunge:) And we feel like crap:( But I know it will get better:) Or maybe it won't :( But we have lifted our ban on cookies (at least for a while) :) I like cookies -- maybe more than cigarettes:)
Well, as to Harry Potter -- wow! That book delivered! While, if I were forced to rank them all, it may not be my favorite book in the series, it is definitely in the top 3 -- so much new information to think about. I'm having trouble coping with some of the events in the book, but since I don't want to spoil it for anyone that hasn't finished it yet, I'll leave it at that.
I cast on for my second Broadripple sock last night. With Harry Potter and feeling poopy from the no smokey treat thing I put off casting on for that second sock, but now it's on the needles and I'm over half way through the leg. I should be done with it in a couple more days and then I want to finally finish my Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban Scarf that I started last November! I think part of my hesitation on finishing that scarf is that I am using acrylic yarn. I have come to detest acrylic and love natural fibers....I keep thinking maybe I'll start over with some nice wool, but then I realize that I'm over halfway through....I know I can do it. Plus, I want to do another one in Ravenclaw colors using Lionbrand Glitterspun for the stripes -- snazzy!
Oh, totally forgot! I did get the job at Northwestern -- hooray! So, I leave my annoying present job next Tuesday and start my new job the week after-- yea! At some point I could go on and on and on in a post about all the things I dislike about my current job, but for the time being, I'll just say that this career move may save my sanity:)
