Pay It Forward

I found this one on one of my old roommates' blog.

So, here's how this game works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or be lazy and copy and paste like I did). Then come back, let me know you're going to play and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Send me an email with your address, to: emilyflynn@idahovandals.com

Remember only the first three get a gift....so be quick!

My Crocheting...

I like to have projects to work on while I watch TV and stuff, but I really like the feel of the soft yarns... They are easier to use as well. So, I am thinking of doing a lot of baby stuff and seeing what else I can come up with. I am going to have to get a tote for all the finished projects... my new gift stash!

Latest project and job update...

So I am working on a baby afghan... Don't ask me why... My sisters are not having kids right now and I am not sure of anyone that is but I am making a white baby afghan because I can... So I need family or a close friend to have a baby like this summer lol...

So I had an interview on Friday. My Mother-in-Law's husband set it up for me. I am still waiting to hear back. It would be a self reliance worker for the state helping with Welfare and that... I got a call this morning from a recruiter that I heard from last week about a computer job. Both these jobs pay about the same and both are temporary.. the computer job is 10-12 weeks with a chance of becoming permanent and the self reliance specialist is 9 months with no promise of a permanent position. I just hope something works out and pray for it as well. Either one would be good money. I would love to persue the computer job since that is what I wanted to do when I started college. The other job is helping people and I would like it too... I just need one of these to work out.

Its been a while...

Okay just a short update...

Did the funeral thing, it was mass - interesting to me as I had never been to one... Spent the evening talking to my Mother-in-law so she had us around. That was fun if you can call it that. then this week we find out that he totally wrote her out of his will which is just a slap in the face. It isn't about money or posessions its about how much a person means to you, right?

Hobby - I have been a crocheting fool lol... Lots of potholders, figuring washrags, done three scarves, want to do a baby afghan and work my way up to big ones.

Family - Jackson is doing well in school, Wyatt is mr. helpful puts everything where it goes - so cute and so polite.
We will be moving at the end of this month. Since niether of us are working at the moment, we are moving in with Pete's grandma temporarily. I will let anyone who asks in on the PO Box. I just can't remember it at the moment. But if you have our old address it will be forwarded. Its kind of crazy trying to get this place ready to move out.

On the job front I got a call yesterday about a possible temporary position. It is 10-12 weeks but could evolve into permanent. Please pray for me I need this or something soon for my own sanity and self worth. It gets to that point in a job hunt.

Being a step mom to a live in teenager is challenging to me. There are just so many things that I want to be selfish about or overstep. I hate having to be on a line and figure out what to do... its nuts.. But I guess its good for me lol. I told my mom one thing that happened and how I reacted and she said I sounded like I knew what I was doing... That helped. Anyway I guess that is all for now.
