Booties

I have some friends of the family who are trying to adopt a baby. These friends are a gay couple. Because of their sexuality, their own families aren’t really involved. My mother is worried that nobody is going to fuss over the baby the way a grandparent should, so she’s taking it upon herself to do the thing.

Usually, when someone I know is having a baby, I make them a blanket. I have made a few, now. I don’t like them. So instead, I’m going to make baby booties… I have never made booties, before. They’re super tiny! That probably sound weird, because of course they’re tiny, but damn, they are tiny.

But yeah, a pair of baby booties and a hat would make a perfectly fine gift for people expecting a baby. Now I just have to pick from one of the million patterns I have found online. Jeez, how many types of booties are there?!

On that note, I’m thinking sleepy pandas.**

Tea

I want to share this with you guys… don’t judge me.

I like tea. Coffee is okay, too, but I honestly prefer my tea. I don’t really have a favorite blend of tea (yet), but I figure I’ll try things until I find one that makes me go, “YES THIS!”

There’s a web site that I get my tea from. It allows people to make blends based on various fandoms. For instance, there is a line of teas that are named after Harry Potter potions. My favorite is Veritaserum. If your tea is named for a character and that character is “shipped” with another character, you can buy both and get a discount. This amuses me greatly.

I recently picked out a few new flavors because I found a line created for the fandom I am currently fixated on. One of the characters is a mix of tiger eye and toasted mate almond. This in and of itself is a good blend. It’s tasty and not overpowering, though I still need two sugars and a dash of milk to make it awesome.

My favorite part? The blend has rainbow sprinkles in it!

Job Searching

In February of this year I was laid off from my job at a call center. I figured okay, fine, it’ll be okay, I can just focus on school. That was an awesome idea, honestly, because I got a break and my grades were awesome. So good decision there. Yay, me.

Now, with school being out of the summer I have attempted to find a job, again. However, I will be attending school full time in the fall, so I have something like two and a half months before I either have to go down to part time or quit altogether. It is frustrating because no professional position wants a worker for that short a time frame! Even a lot of the temp positions I’ve looked at all want a six month commitment which I cannot give. So, for now I am jobless and… not quite regretting my decision. I am regretting that I didn’t start looking for another job until after finals, though. I don’t know how I would have done that, but I wish I had figured it out.

Also, all the jobs that would be temporary like diners or grocery stores have been taken because the high schoolers are out for the summer, too. Dammit!

Ouch!

My husband hit his head at work, today. The hit was hard enough that it knocked him on his ass. We took him to the ER and he has a mild concussion. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to be too serious. We’re currently watching for the regular dizziness, nausea, and irregular pupils and such.

Remember, kids: always wear a helmet!
