New Year, New Floors?

Sort of new floors.

Family recently discovered the other day, that the family room has wooden floors beneath the carpet.  So tonight they are cleaning up the floor from all the carpet ripping.

Yay new floors!

New Year, New Start?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I hope everyone's 2012 was at least passable (by that I mean a year that you had ups and downs that somehow managed to equal each other out).

So, over the last year, I've felt I've been hitting a proverbial wall. Career, romance, social..... you get the picture.

I've been wanting (and sort of needing) to find a Full-Time job. It's been a challenge. What ever I apply to, I never hear from or the pass me over for someone else (one of the perks of USAJobs.gov is you see what your status is) and I've been looking for about 3 years now. Mind you, it's been on again off again looking for work.....

I *really* just want something to land in my lap. But doesn't everyone? Right now, I really want to be able to work outdoors.  Yes, I *KNOW* that means working in REALLY cold and REALLY hot temperatures at time, but, I feel like that's where I should be right now. Working outdoors. I've applied to a couple Park Ranger positions, but with ALL the competition for those jobs, I realize it's a shot in the dark.  It is what it is.

I am hoping this year brings some romance into my life. Because, quite frankly, I need some. At this point, I do want to find "The One", but I am not holding my breath.

I am so ready to have my own place. So, so, so ready. My own place, quiet, no one else bothering me. SO MUCH ME TIME!!!!!  Family is annoying me. But that is to be expected????

This year, I want to be able to knit down my yarn stash and read 26 books. 1 book every two weeks is reasonable, I think.


Anyway, I'm rambling.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Geocaching

I will admit there are some things that when I initially hear them I AM interested in them, but not necessarily gun-ho "LETS DO IT" sort of interested. (Some times it takes friends who've joined after I did to get me involved :look )

Geocaching has been one of these things.

Geocaching is probably best described as "modern" treasure hunting. From the site: "Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location."

I will I have been recently trying to organize local caches so I can collect as many as possible in as few trips as possible. 

Lets see how well this works (and how long it lasts). ~.~

Back in the Saddle Again.....

It's about time I start blogging again.

I will say that in the last 6+ months I've had some adventures.  I've flew to Colorado for a party organised through an online book club I belong to, I've gotten into Geocaching (I signed up on a website that hosts lists of caches, but never did anything until CO), knitted some stuff (currently working on a scarf loosely inspired from the Wheel of Time series), planning a one day, round trip bus trip to NC to just ride up with a friend who's visiting me for a week, the two of us are going to a local event (same online book club people, just an unofficial event that some how has people coming from as far away as GA attending.  Ya, did I mention it's a "local" party?), and job hunting for FT work. :P

I will say, I think I am more into the IDEA of Geocaching than Geocaching itself. Idk how true it is but so far, its true.

Le Sigh

I am hoping things have only been a karmic release these past couple of days.

*At one of my PT jobs, one of the registers was $65 short (this is after about 1/2 an hour of counting all the registers (one was off $100 as well, but we mis-counted and ended up being ok) and the safe). Everything but that one register was fine.

*When dressing myself this morning, I completely spaced on the fact I was working at BOTH of my PT jobs. I dressed for only one of them (and didnt have any back up on me). Didnt realise this until after I took my coat off at work, and after finding out that none of the appropriate clothing stores in the area were open before noon.

Other than that, things have been good. Knitting still (though I really dont have any projects going at the moment), and reading a fair amount.
