Good News!

I have a Little!! I got the call today that Big Brothers Big Sisters found me a Little Sister. Her name is Alexis and she is in 2nd grade. I am excited and nervous to meet her. I get to meet her on Friday and since we will be meeting during her lunch/recess time I can bring my lunch too and we can go out and play after we work on school stuff.

I just remembered today that my real estate license is expiring in March 2008. I was trying to sign up for my post license course that I have to complete but the only class openings were not going to work for me time wise and they are in Orlando and Kissimmee. Those are both pretty far for me since the class is from 6-10pm on a Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday for two weekends in a row. I was getting really worried that I would not get my class done in time. I checked one other school that my boss used for her license and they have an online course that I can complete at home. That’s 45 hours that I won’t have to sit in a classroom. I was amazed, and it’s like $60 cheaper. That’s awesome!! So I’m all signed up and ready to go.

I worked some more on the Striped Sock. I hope to have it done by the end of the week. I hope I don’t end up wearing 1 ½ socks to the Needleworks show.

If you noticed, there was something new in that picture. I was trying to be good so I cast on a swatch for the Ballet Cami. I'm even going to wash it :-) The yarn was leftover Shine Sport from Sheldon. So far I like how soft the yarn is. The swatch is still small but it looks like it will drape nicely. I plan on making the Cami sort of big. I want a snug top but not really snug like the pattern suggests. I don’t think me wearing a top with negative ease will help anyone. I am going to make it longer too. I want it hip length. Is this a lot to hope for in my first top?

I am glad I didn't sign up for NaBloPoMo because I seem to be having a hard time making this thing interesting lately.

How cool! You got a Little Sister! 2nd graders are so cool! They know so much, but yet so little! Have fun! And the sock is looking good! Secret Pal-Not for much longer

Hooray on the little. They're a lot of fun at that age! Can't wait to hear how it goes. :)

Socks are looking good. Keep on it! You've got a whole week and a half to finish them. Hehe!

And don't you love the online options we have now for everything? Man, what did we do before computers?! Oh right, we drove a couple hundred miles round-trip and actually sat through classes. Ugh!

And no, I don't think that's too much to ask out of your first top. Especially not when you're a perfectionist.

Yeah for becoming a big sister! I hope your first get together went well. The online course sounds like a great deal and your striped socks look great.
