Housewife, Day 1

It is Arazyr's first day on his new job. For the first time in years, I'm to be home all day, when he's not. It's sort of an odd feeling. Not necessarily bad, just odd. Oddly... purposeful. By 10:00 am, I'd already gotten as much done around the house as I've been getting done in an entire day, of late. While KatyBeth slept, I made granola, put a huge dent in the dishes, and got a little cleaning in done in the bathroom. By 11:00, the baby was up, changed, dressed, and had more tummy time than she'll usually tolerate.

I Have A New Little Nephew!

Born around 6:00 this morning, my sister's (Auntie Marj) newest son. More details later, after I get them. (My sister sounded kind-of out of it this morning when she called me to let me know, so I didn't press her for any details. 8^)

We just went to visit my sister, new baby, and the daddy in the hospital. Everybody is doing fine. Baby is tiny, but we were expecting that. Seems to be normal for the daddy's side of the family...

Born: 18 April 2008
Time: 6:08 a.m.
Weight: 4 lb., 14 oz.
Length: 18 3/4 in.

Back to Work; Back needs work...

So, I just got an offer from one of the companies I interviewed at last week. It looks like a good opportunity, so I'm taking it. They want me to start next Tuesday! Sounds good to me. I like to have at least a few days to get things wrapped up at home before starting a new job.

The place that's made the offer is the geographically closest of the three places I interviewed at. It's just over in Dearborn, so it should only take about 20-30 minutes to drive between here and there. I like the sound of that. 8^)

It Was a Busy Week...

Last week was a busy week. As I think I posted before, I ended up having one job interview each day last week. Phone interviews on Monday and Tuesday, then in-person interviews on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. (Two of those were "second interviews" coming out of the two phone interviews.)

Finished! (And on time, too!)

The "baby cousin" blanket is now finished (before the intended recipient has arrived, too)!

Check out the "juujika's Workshop" for more pictures!

Miscellany in the wee hours

It's 1:00 am. I don't know why I'm still awake. I probably should be falling on my face, but I'm not... at least, not quite.

Job Hunt Progress, etc.

Since my last blog entry, I had two more interviews scheduled for this week. Another phone interview this afteroon, and another in-person interview for tomorrow morning. That makes a total of four interviews this week: phone interview Monday, phone interview Tuesday, in-person interview Wednesday, in-person interview Thursday. Two down: the phone interviews both went pretty well. The one on Monday went so well that they want me to come in for a second; that's the new in-person interview for tomorrow (Wed).

I just want to eat like a truckdriver.

Saturday was one of those days. We went to Allie's Cafe (yes, Sue & Mark, the one we all went to) and I had an AWESOME omelette with onions, potatoes & cheese. I wanted to make funny noises as I was eating the omelette. Perhaps, next time I meet those of you whom I know, I will demonstrate these funny noises.

The rest of you will never know.


One thing about nursing a baby is that it has a tendency to make one rather hungry, fairly frequently. After all, a nursing mother is still "eating for two" - even more so than during gestation, in fact, as the baby requires more calories as an independent person than as a fetus. Therefore, I snack a lot. I just finished a rather large serving of yogurt. Now, when I eat yogurt, I have a tendency to load it up with miscellaneous embellishments - whatever is available.

Blankets and Job Hunts and Baby - Oh My!

The "baby cousin blanket" is now nearly 30 inches long - I *might* actually get this done, in time! (: Yes, you saw that correctly - I do make my typed smilies backwards. I have done that since my college days, when I discovered that doing so made it easier to make a smiley sticking its tongue out in an impudent manner -> c(: Anyway, back to the blanket... One thing I find puzzling is the fact that it is measuring 37 inches wide, without the final edging. The pattern says it is supposed to end up 37 inches wide, AFTER the final edging. I swatched, I swear I did!
