Do Over?

Today is a day. Last night, I locked my digital badge by typing in the wrong pin number once. When I got to work today, my encryption was locked due to that badge being locked. I had to go to another system and figure out that process to get it unlocked. 48 digits and twenty minutes later, I'm able to log onto my computer.

The guy who does the morning stuff is out today and tomorrow, so I'm doing it. I'm to the point that if I don't understand the name, I just forward it to the supervisor and say who is this because honestly? Life is too short. I'm trying very hard to not let the annoyances of the day affect me, but I'm afraid it might be creeping it's way in. Great, now I have to reboot. This too shall pass Guess, I'm not quite living up to the don't be annoyed because I was just rude to a guy. Damn. And another reboot. (Breathe) I can do this.

The day is over, guess I lived. Time to go home and relax.

Look, a Post

Today is the second day in a row, we've woken up to snow. Thankfully, it hasn't (or won't) stay around much, unless it's in the shade all day. The skiers are all excited that the mountain might be opening soon(TM), but me? Not so much. I'm not ready for this winter thing. It's too cold and dark.

Yesterday was Ruby's one year check up. At the house, she's too busy running around being a hyper kitten. At the doctor's office, she was all sorts of Mommy, I don't like it here.

Knitting has been going slow. I've been working on the two socks at a time, which I feel is a complete time suck. So I need to buckle down and finish them. I've got eight inches to go on my tunic and it will be done. But I'm not working on it either. I don't want to start anything new because that would just add to the knitting pile, that I'm not working on. So my mojo will come back and I'll be happy and knitting again. Just need to wait it out.

  • Today is my Friday!

  • We haven't turned on the house heater yet, but I am using a space heater

Drive By

I did make banana bread last night. I really like how this recipe turned out, so I think it will be my go to recipe from now on. I really liked it so much, I ate half a loaf. (sigh)

I did manage to work on Grilltech's socks last night. I'm about six, six and a half inches long at this point, so I'm pretty close to starting the heel. Two at a time really makes me feel like these socks are taking forever. I know it's not really, but it just feels that way.


It was a nice weekend. Grilltech took me to the Last Witch Hunter. I liked it. There was a couple of plot holes, but then what movies doesn't have those? It made me happy. I guess that's all I'm looking for in a movie these days. We also watched the Back to the Future trilogy this weekend. It was fun.

The previews for the up coming movies didn't in the least excite me at all. The only one who made a dent was Star Wars and honestly, I'm a bit gun shy about that one also. Grilltech, however, is all sorts of looking forward to the new movie coming out and has already purchased our tickets. So I guess I'm going.

I didn't get a whole lot of knitting done. I don't think these socks are going to be done by the 31st unless I really buckle down. After I make banana bread tonight.
