College #79

Despite the long hours and the long commute, I put in another 2,000 stitches!



I will try to have a page finish with the next update. That still doesn't guarantee that I will have a finish by the end of this year, particularly with the newest life update. Even if I don't finish it in time for Christmas, though, it will still make a great gift.

Last week was my birthday and I entered the last year of my 20's. The day itself was pretty uneventful. I went to work, I came home, and we ate so much sushi I could barely move. All in all a good day. Gifts were lovely, of course, and The Crafty Princess did it again and sent me a lovely little dragon from Charting Creations to add to my dragon-obsessed collection:

Isn't he lovely? I still need to name him. I already have a dragon named Benedict, and my friend has a little dragon named Henry, so he needs a good name.

So in regards to my last post, the good things I've been keeping close to the chest: I've been going through a fairly extensive interview process for a great position in a top-tier law firm. Long story short I signed the offer letter on Wednesday. :) We're still waiting on some paperwork to go through before I find out when my first day will be, but I'm really excited. This will be a great step for us especially since H³ left work to go to grad school, which is also a very important step. The job itself is great, although I may be working even longer hours. But you take some you give some and ultimately this is a wonderful thing.

All in all, life is good. I don't know when I find time for anything anymore, stitching inclusive, but apparently I do so I'm not complaining. Just taking life one day at a time and hoping for the best, always.

With that, I wish you all a fantastic weekend, and happy stitching!

I'm right there with you I turned 29 in April. Scary! I love your dragon he looks like he's made out of gold. He looks like an Arthur to me :). Congrats on your new job and your stitching looks great!

How exciting! Is it going to be like Ally McBeal? Somehow I doubt it.
You might be entering the last year of your twenties but I'm about to enter the final year of my forties, eek!
College is looking great, hope you can fit some stitching time in, maybe lunch breaks and commuting?
