I have got to get me a job.
Now if only daycare wasn't $33.00 a day and I wasn't woefully uneducated. I suppose I could ring groceries through a till at the local grocery for a good penny, but I am not big on that store. He has a really bad habit of jacking up the prices on decent diapers, Homo milk and formula. Anything people regularly buy to have shipped up north to the reserves are oddly high priced too.
I've been in a bit of a funk lately, so don't mind the ranty nature of the last little while. Winter is coming and I'm not an outdoor person at the best of times. When the mercury starts dropping (how old am I?), I hole up even more than usual and cabin fever sets in fast. I really wish there was something for a non-athletic type to do indoors around here that didn't cost a bloody fortune and didn't require regular attendance. I'm out of the whole drinking scene, not that that's a cheap past-time anyway, but it seems that's all people do here.
I'm thinking about trying to get a knitting group going. There are a few problems with that though.
1. The only places to meet where people wouldn't need a car or have to pay to get in are coffee shops. There aren't very many nice coffee shops with good coffee and a decent amount of seating either. In fact, there is one nice coffee shop that has good coffee, but it only has about 12 seats.
2. I don't think calling it Stitch and Bitch would go over very well up here though. I couldn't go every week since the Mr. has a wonky schedule.
What do you think, would you join a group that only met every two weeks? What would you call it?
I'm watching Calendar Girls on the CBC right now so I'm writing this with an English accent, by the way.
Edited to Add: Kristy, I haven't gotten anything yet. The mail can be really slow though. Molasses runs up hill faster sometimes.
Charity, I love the Misti Alpaca. Soft, squishy and not hard to handle even when your hands get sticky or sweaty. The poor skeins I sent my lace pal got felt up right well and so has the ball I just got. I hear it's surprisingly warm for something so light ... so soft ... so squishy ...
The purse will be felted. The vote was unanamous and I was kind of leaning toward felting too. Now, I just have to get to a top loading washing machine. Mine is a front loader and I don't want it to mat closed.
