I'm thinking I'll most likely finish by the end of the week! Beads and all.
Texas so far has been not bad, apart from the whole sick cat fiasco. Boyfriend is at his first day of work right now and I'm at home, job hunting. Might have a potential lead, granted it's for an unpaid position but in this economy, experience is sometimes more valuable than an actual paycheck, so cross your fingers for me! In a little while I have to go to the store to get things for dinner and then I have to clean up a little bit.
This may sound kind of pathetic but I've forgotten what it's like to be on my own. For the past year I've lived at my parent's house and although it wasn't a free ride, so to speak, I didn't have nearly the responsibility I should have had. Living with Boyfriend is great, too, since he's actually super helpful around the house. He washes dishes, vacuums, and does basically anything I ask him to do if I'm feeling overwhelmed, which lately I've been feeling quite a bit. Understandable, I think. I've come to realize that Texas is kind of like another country where everyone speaks English, and I don't mean that in a bad way. It was like that when I went to Iceland, too. The land is completely different than in California. People drive differently, the cars are different, customs and culture, people, stores, everything. The common denominator is that everyone speaks English. It's an interesting experience, without a doubt, and not a bad one, just will take some time getting used to.
Until then I will stitch, clean, cook, and look for a job until I find one. I'm excited to go back to work, even if it would be in a volunteer or part-time position, especially considering I start school soon! Signed up for classes last week.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with a finish! Catching up on blogs, too, by the way - I haven't abandoned you all!
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
