Well! My last night working at Holy Family Hospital in Methuen, MA was on Friday the 13th last month. :-) I spent the next few days packing up my car, and headed back Tuesday morning. I did get some weaving done that weekend - I was close enough to being done Monday night that I was able to stop and watch Return of the Jedi and weave for a while. Then Tuesday morning I just had to finish stuffing the remnants in the car and leave.
Hopefully I won't ever have to "stuff" things again - I got a new car! I will try to post a picture from flickr when I finish this post. I love it! It is perfect for me. Apparently they couldn't sell it because although it is a crossover, most crossovers have the third row of seats, and this one doesn't. That made it perfect for me, however, because the first one I looked at DID, and when you folded the seats down there just wasn't enough room for my tubs in the back. I was a bit of a hard sell, though - made the guy go get a tape measurer and measure the length, width, and height (to the bottom of the windows) of both my car and the Journey (it's a Dodge Journey, an 09 but has been there long enough to go through a hail storm, although I still can't see any dents anywhere), and THIS Journey has more room than my car. Plus, since the second row of seats folds down, I don't have to worry about losing them in the storage shed, like I did with the seats to the PT Cruiser! OH, what a pain THAT was...
I found the new car in KS - it was such a good deal that my brother-in-law (James) said he didn't think I'd find a better one in TX, so I went ahead and bought it here, but then had to go get the back seats to the old car and bring them back. So I drove down to TX Sunday, and James and I went to the storage shed after my nephew's soccer game. One of the seats was conveniently close to the front of the storage shed - you could actually see it. The other? Not so close... I think we took at least a quarter of the stuff in my storage shed out and piled it in the hallway (James had me get a cart for some of it after I had moved stuff farther down the hallway for a third time, and we moved a freezer out), but then we (and by we, I mean mostly James, although I did move a lot of boxes) were able to just kind of scoot things around, and he found the seat finally, and then he stacked and rearranged things a bit so that I have some more room in there.
My storage shed, btw, is 10'x20'. And very tall. It's not a small storage shed.
Anyway - weaving. I've been working on triangles for my nephew's afghan again, but keep changing the pattern. I think I'll just weave up all the yarn I bought and then figure out the pattern and buy more yarn if necessary! I have four colors of yarn right now - a lime green, a bright blue, orange, and a variegated blue/green/purple. I just can't come up with a pattern I really like, although I do have a couple of patterns with a "J" in the center (his name is also James) (so is my brother's, so is my dad's...) that aren't too bad.
Well, that's it for this post. Car picture to follow!
