Live from Panera

Dear Ryan,
You are at work and I am sitting at the Panera in Crystal Lake... I'm supposed to be knitting, but instead I am pissing around on the interwebs... I found this list of sweaters that you should not wear on a first date. I thought the fact that they had to mention sweaters with cartoon characters on them was sad. Isn't that sort of a no-brainer?! Regardless, there are some good sweaters on there that no one should be allowed to wear for anything.

I am working on the blanket a bit and have to admit that it looks less patriotic in the dim light at Panera, so it might not be TOO bad after all... I am hopeful.

I need to get my camera back out and start blogging again. It's always fun to go back and look through the posts later. It's like having a public journal. The public part makes it better, I think. I leave out things that I wouldn't want to read later because I don't want anyone else to read them now.

Anyway, darling, I love you SO much and I'm going to get to see you in about 4 1/2 hours... which is nice...



I like this one... its available smaller which I think I would like more

This one is from the same seller and I like it, too.... again there are downgrades available that would make it more in the price range I find acceptable. This seller has lots of gorgeous stuff

I like some of the concepts in this sellers collection (notably the beauty in imperfection rings).

This one is pretty, too... and fairly low.

Gorgeous rings!!! None of them are really "me", but they are SOO pretty!!!

Just thought I'd look around on etsy and give you some ideas! I love you!

It's like national blogging month or something....

Dear Ryan,
November is (or so all the many (108) blogs I follow have been telling me) national blog month.... or some such nonsense.... which means that in order to be a good blogger I need to be blogging EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. THIS. MONTH.

I'll pause while you absorb that....

I'm already three days behind... and today's is a cheat. Today's post is just a public announcement of my failure as a blogger.... I have a sad face.... ----> :-(

So, maybe, just maybe I'll find a way to be a good blogger, but I wouldn't hold your breath....

In other news.... I have two jobs that I am "actually" quailified for* that I need to apply to.... in the next week.... and my being qualified is stressing me out.... so is the idea of living within an hour and a half of you.... its close, but still too far away to be comfortable..... I don't know... I don't have a good plan yet.... Genoa would just be a pain for everyone.... Anyway, I love you!

I hope you're feeling better,


*the job requires 3 years library experience and an associate's degree. I have 1 year library experience, a bachelor's degree and a certificate that says I know a thing or two about how libraries work.... so, that consitutes "actually" qualified in my book.
