Well, just because I haven't posted anything in two years does not meant that I haven't been around. I have even come by my blog a couple of time to see what I last posted. Unfortunately for the blog-a-sphere I waste all my time on Facebook these days. I hate that I do it, but it's so addictive to see what everyone is up to. Not that I'm nosy I just like to see what other people think, like, want, or do everyday....which makes me sound like I have no life LOL!
The past two years have been crazy, of course. How could my life be anything else? I got re-married--something that I think I forgot to mention back in 2012. Insanely happy still. I must admit being with someone you are insanely happy with makes all the crazy stuff in life much easier to handle.
We temporarily moved to another state for work. Which took place right after my last blog entry. We spent a year working there and then suddenly out of the blue a job landed in my husbands lap at home and we were able to come back last January. We have been so happy to be home. I LOVED my job in the other state and wish I could do it here, but no luck. I was working as a biology field technician for an environmental consulting firm--sounds pretty fancy huh! What I really did was get paid to hike about 10 miles a day in the mountain desert and look for plants, cactus (the one I have the picture of above), and birds. I had no idea you could paid to go hiking. BEST JOB EVER!
So here we are back at home in Wyoming. I managed to get a temporary job where my husband is working. I'm doing graveyard security for their construction site....yep I'm bored and it's the middle of the night LOL. I've always been a morning person so I thought I would never be able to do a job like this, but you know I've done fine switching my days and nights around. It's just so weird to be up and going when everyone else is fast asleep. The job will only last a few more weeks and then I will be back to trying to sell my hand crafts. If I could make money at that THAT would be the best job ever! But after having three different etsy stores over the past eight years, I've about decided my stuff SUCKS! I've seen people sell ten times more stuff than I do and they have essentially the same product. They obviously know something I don't.
Anyway, I've been knitting, of course. I'm getting ready to start another sweater for my husband. He had seen this online and asked if I thought I could make it LOL. After those Aran sweaters I can make any sweater.
