projects and thoughts

Thought I'd share some recent projects. I finally finished the baby sweater I started at the beginning of the month. It is my first official finished sweater! It's for a co-worker whose wife is having a baby any day now. We are having a little baby shower for them tomorrow. I just finished a card to go with it but haven't photographed it yet...I'll try and post it tomorrow.

I also got the paint-your-own-pottery peices back I did a few weeks ago at a Relay-for-Life fundraiser. It was a fun night and I'm pleased with my peices. I'm going there again for a Girl's Night in a few weeks.

I'm waiting for Cary to get back from running so we can go to the movies. I was going to go into the college today and pack up my office. We are moving into a new space at the end of the summer. But I decided I will do that in a week or so because I have to go there for an appt as well. Plus Cary is going to be going back and forth to Maine for the next two weeks and then he leaves for the 2 month training.

The weather here has been so gloomy. I want the sun. And things have been stressful in other areas I won't go into. I hate being a perfectionist sometimes. It stresses me out and when I get any criticism it really hits me hard. Sometimes I don't mind it when it's constructive but when you feel like you put 100% into something and someone finds something to criticize it is hard for me to take. I'm not perfect. I need to keep reminding myself of that fact. It is impossible to be perfect. Lately I've been having this feeling like I just want to make a huge change in direction. I don't know what yet. But something. I need change.
