Today I finished the part of the supa sekrit project #1 that I've been having the most problems with and I am very happy. It's finally done so to get to 50% will be a piece of cake and I will definitely get it tomorrow. And then I can finish my sweater hopefully in time to be submitted to the local fair. I feel better now that I can see progress on things and things are finally getting finished. It's a nice feeling.
Doctor's appointment today was a quick one. He just looked at my face and basically said to keep doing what I'm doing and hope for the best and if it's not better in a few weeks to come back and we'll go from there. At least it's not flesh eating bacteria. That makes me feel better.
Just a quick update today. I want to go get some things done before bed. I've started reading the Game of Thrones series and it's actually pretty nice to read before bed although not many people have been brutally murdered at this point, just a few.

|Please ignore the missing dresser drawer. I took it out to empty it and just hadn't put it back yet.|

|She is really bad at hiding.|
That's how I feel. I have a weird sick thing happening that I really don't want to talk about because it's kinda embarrassing and I'm not over how embarrassing it is yet. Once I get over it, I'll share but for right now I'm just going to remain sick. Trust me, I have a rough draft of an essay all about it already written, I'm just not ready to share with anyone yet. I can be private sometimes. No, really! I can!
I've worked on the test knit. It's slow going, which is something that Lee Meredith said when she sent out the test knit but it's slower than I expected. I consider myself an incredibly fast knitter (only because I've been told by lots of people that I knit quickly) so when I say it's slow going, it's slow going. I am enjoying it, I just don't feel like I'm getting anything done on it. It doesn't help that I had to restart. It is looking better now though and I'm 2/3 of the way done now, I just have to finish it up so I can get the rest of the stuff I need done. I go months and months without needing to do anything and then all of a sudden, 4 different things need to be done within a week of each other. Buh.
And I'm sick on top of it. Sorta. Again, more on that later.

I blame not feeling well. Can I do that? I haven't been feeling too hot over the past few days and that's meant lots of naps and not a whole lot else. Well, except knitting. I've been knitting a lot. But it's all on stuff that I can't show you so...Just trust me here.
Restarted the test knit last night. I missed a huge pattern instruction and I wasn't liking how it was turning out so I decided to restart it. No big deal. Just have to focus my attention on that now instead of other things. Whoo, scheduling things!

|If she fits, she sits even if there is a bigger box that she fits in better just over there.|
This blog does not necessarily endorse the company on the mug, I just wanted to show off my new mug. I've had ones similar to it on my wishlist for about two years now. The Boyfriend got it free from work and since he doesn't use mugs hardly ever, he let me steal it.
Today has been busy with work on supa sekrit project 1. Since I actually have some deadlines for it, I figured it should get some attention this week. I actually have to schedule my time this next week because of various deadlines, which I'm enjoying. Scheduling something in my life that doesn't involve a tv schedule makes me feel like I have some importance.
Wow, this went dark fast.

Knitting today has all been supa sekrit knitting. I'm test knitting something for Lee Meredith which I have been sworn to secrecy about. I'll show you of course once I'm done with it but for now you just have to trust me that it's awesome and fun and I love it.
But for now it's bed time. Just wanted to pop in and do the post real quick. It would've been a no dialogue post if I had gotten a picture earlier today but I didn't because I forgot. *shrug* Oh well!

|Pretty picture of the yarn I spun instead of what I worked on today because all I worked on was the Supa Sekrit Project.|
But I've had some good news today. Not a lot but a little and you know what, it made me smile like a lunatic for about two hours. More information once I get it. I also did some writing today, outside of the blog. Once it's finished I'm going to submit it to all of the places I can in hopes that SOMEONE will publish it. I submitted another piece to a publication. It's already been rejected once from another publication but I really like it and I have faith in it. It just has to find it's audience.
You know what must be boring? Reading about writing about writing. It's pretty boring for me but that's all I have going on right now that I can share and so I thought I should share what I can. I also did laundry today but that was much less exciting and no where near as productive.

|She looks perturbed because the Boyfriend just played Lion King with her (where you hold her up and try to sing the Circle of Life. She wasn't happy.)|
Today not a lot of knitting happened. I had to rip out a big section on the supa sekrit project because I didn't like how it was looking and I need to redo it. I knit probably two stitches today before I ripped it all out. It's now sitting in timeout because I'm frustrated with it. I needed to do it so that it would look nice and how I want it to but I'm still frustrated with it.
I feel like I should have something with more substance today but I just don't know what to say. Maybe tomorrow I'll have an opinion about something.

|She got a new box. She is happy because it didn't instantly rip as soon as she sat in it.|
