February 2007

We spent the weekend in Vegas with some friends, attending a fight (I know. Totally weird–I never, ever thought that I would go to any kind of fight, period. And enjoy it. But I did. And had a great time.)

We stayed at a Marriott, which was nice, clean, non smoking, and affordable. The fight was at UNLV and was packed with people (including Harrison Ford and Nicholas Cage). From there we went to dinner and then to Caesar’s Palace for gambling (I won 200$ at roulette!) and drinking/dancing. My friend helped me get all done up which was really fun because I never, ever do that.

The first picture is me and T, and the second is the four of us at dinner after the fight.

Today my boss told me I could attend the Pre-conference of theInternational Association of Eating Disorder Professionals which is focused on treating eating disorders in adolescents–and my work is going to pay. I feel like a real professional, building a specialty. It is an amazingly nice feeling. And this Friday is my 3 month review–with my boss and her boss. Wish me luck!

I have gotten more done on thermal, but it looks the same, just a bit longer. Didn’t get much knitting done over the weekend, and am now slowly recovering from the lack of sleep. Hoping to get some knitting done this coming weekend and maybe at the end of the week. But too tired right now.


I am actually making progress on Thermal.

I really, really like this knit.

Working on thermal but my forearms are hurting so it is slow going.

I have pictures from our weekend in Big Bear

Here is everyone in the driveway of the cabin (I am on the far right)

Here are the girls (again, far right) this is the view from the balcony of our cabin:

I finished my second sock today (finally–I put it down the night Layla died–I was knitting it when I got the call and it just took me a while to pick it back up).

I will be casting on my gauge swatch for Thermal in the next few days.

That’s all I’ve got here, other than to direct you to Bertha’s site to look at her cute new baby (wrapped in the blanket I knit for her!).
