Well, since I'm currently in the process of transcribing an interview with a priest (for NASCAR, believe it or not), it seems only fitting that I make my first ever confession in front of a man of the cloth...

Forgive me, Father, for I have not knit a single stitch in over a week.

That's how it's done, right? heh heh...

The honest to goodness truth is that I have not held my knitting needles since the flight home from Paris. You see, first I got slammed in a bad way with jet lag and some cruddy virus, and then I got slammed in a good way with an explosion of work opportunities. They are huge and there's an abundance of them, so I've been able to pick the cream of the crop and sculpt this job thingy to be exactly the way I want it. While these opportunities are indeed worth of the happy Snoopy dance I've been doing on a regular basis, they are sucking up quite a bit of my time and energy right now to get things into place. That's cool, though, because my sweet little home-based biz is morphing again and I'm more excited than ever about where it's going. But since it's all computer stuff, that leaves me with pooped arms come the end of my workdays. At that point, I figure picking up the pointy sticks is just asking to be driven to my knees by carpal tunnel problems. So the whole family has been reading after dinner every night instead. And we like that too. :-)

Meanwhile, Leah sewed a trick-or-treat bag for Jesse. This was while I was sick, so she did every step of it completely on her own, bless her industrious little seamstress heart. I'd show you a picture of it, but I think it's in Jesse's room and it's dark out right now, and I don't dare navigate his lair of Lego/K'nex landmines without assistance of daylight. We have otherwise been doing some felting and glass work in preparation for decorating a Christmas tree to donate to the Wadsworth Atheneum's Festival of Trees. I'll post more about that later.

But now, back to work I go. Happily.

Kudos on the business news! By all means, pamper the paws, they are soooo important. Can't wait to see the bag. I've been so impressed with Leah's sewing progress. She rocks!
