I've been busy, busy, busy! First of all, the "easy" classes I am taking turned out to be not so easy. For one thing, I have homework--written homework--for my yoga class. Stress management requires a tone of reading, which I am, alas, behind in. English, though, I have kept on top of, perhaps because it is my favorite course. Regardless, this week I have to read several chapters to catch up in Stress Management, I have to write an essay for English, and I have tests in both classes next week. Ugh! And if that is not enough, I have complicated things by pursuing a promotion at work.

At work, I have asked to become a Department Manager at my store. This means I will have to put my kids in daycare and work 45 hours a week. BUT, this also means I would get a salary, opposed to my hourly wage. Right now I'm waiting for the Human Resources guy to get back to me. He has heard of my wishes from my managers, and sometime today he will look over my resume. Really, the job is in the bag. The stress comes from the life change this job will bring. No more naps in the afternoon, or time to blow off housework. And the kids! How will they react to the change?? I know my youngest is thrilled about going to "school," but my oldest has developmental problems. How will he fair? It's a little too late to turn back now, though. My husband and friends say everything will be fine, but this is a major decision for me. Thing is, despite my worries, I really want this job. I like where I work, the pay is good, and there is PLENTY of room for advancement. And the actual position I want will be very challenging. I guess I'm just feeling a little guilty. And frightened. Eh, I'll get over it. :)

I haven't done a whole lot of knitting lately. I've been too stressed and too busy. My parents came up for a week and a half. We had fun, but it is very hard to keep the place straightened when you add two more adults into the mix. The boys had a blast with their grandparents, though. And it snowed. I have some pictures of my dad and Aaron throwing snowballs at each other. I don't have those pics uploaded. Too lazy right now. I will, though. I will.

Speaking of snow, its doing that on and off right now. No really accumulation, but it sure is purdy.

Alright, that's enough gibber-jabbing for now. Next post--pictures!
