Time Flies...

Wow, where has the time gone? I can tell you! At work. I've been working stupid hours for the past month and am just exhausted. Now, I realise that LL normally works 12 hour days, but I think (and I could be wrong) that 12 hours of physical labor, while physically tiring isn't as mentally exhausting as 12 hours of office work, especially when you take into account the lack of daylight. Zone D for Dungeon is so not a good time. I honestly don't have a clue what is happening outside ever. Summer, fall, winter, spring – it's all the same in this crappy area.

Now, you might think that once I got home I could write a blog entry, but I was so tired, it was all I could do to get a beer out of the fridge. Yes, I've been eating oh so healthily, too. And with it being October, I've been trying to knit as much as possible. On my trip to Atlanta , I met a young man from my hometown on his way to Afghanistan , and I told him that I would knit him a hat since Afghanistan can be bloody cold. I finished the hat last week, but am waiting on his father to call me back with the address. I have some of the yarn leftover (hoping half) and I'm thinking of making another for him to give to someone in his unit. It only took me two days (once I got going – had the damnedest time joining in the round w/o twisting it), so I could whip one out and that makes me think about knitting a bunch for the South African AIDS orphans. I started knitting for Knit-A-Square a few months back, but they need more than just 8" squares (to be sewn into blankets once they get to South Africa) and are happy to accept hats and pullovers. The idea behind the squares is that they're easy and quick and not as imposing as knitting a whole blanket. I mailed mine a while back right in the middle of their mail strike and so far, they haven't gotten them. I'm getting worried, although I'm sure they'll get there and help to warm up so poor child.

I'm home sick today. I don't know what is up but I'm nauseous all the time. I left work yesterday around 12:30 and went straight to bed. I've been up a whole hour and a half and am ready to go back to bed. I hate being sick. And with that, I'm signing off...because you don't really want to read about me feeling like puking.
