Drunk hand

Ok so every year I go crazy with the pumpkin carving. Last night I stayed up till midnight carving 9 pumpkins. And I didnt go easy way either. I'll post pics later. But any way today I haave "Drunk hand", on my right hand all my fingers but my pinky are numb, my fore arm kinda aches and I have as much muscle control as a Co-Ed after a raging kegger. It is teh suck. And this isnt the first time I've had this, pretty much every halloween after carving up my masterpieces I end up with this. I know I'm doing something wrong in the way Im holding the knife maybe. I dunno, has anyone else ever had this?

Good news

I got another job. I'm working at a Relocation company. Pretty much its 3 agents; 2 full time, and one semi-retired; that specialize in working with people moving to Tucson from out of state. It's quiet, usually I'll be the only one in the office. But there's alot of organizing to do and I think I'll manage to keep myself pretty busy. It pays well and we're going to work out a way for them to pay for my health & dental insurance. I think if this goes well I should be able to get my finances under control in time to lose control at christmas.

I'm loving Ravelry. Not only is it a fabulous way to promote my patterns but its just fun to show off my finished works and see what other people are doing. And saturday I found the BEST group on there. The Lolravelers. A way to combine yarn love, and lolcat love!! It's enough to make me dizolv inta lolcat speek. I can has stitchez?

Speaking of cats and yarn. I do love my cats, but they really make it hard when I catch them (Pepper, Im looking at you) peeing on my yarn. Luckily it was cotton yarn, so I threw it in the bathroom sink with some soap and cleaned it. I hope it dries properly.

Since i got laid off I decided that the best way to make myself happy was to bake. So since then I've made, chocolate chocolate chip cookies, cranberry pumpkin pie, & cinnamon raisin bread. And I have a bunch more stuff to make more things. My big problem is baking makes me happy. But I dont necessarily eat everything I bake. So mostly I make my mom angry because I have yummy baked good around and she wants to lose weight. I need to find someone who likes to just eat yummy baked goods alot.
