I has been a long time

Well alot has been going on in my little world. My current aggervation is my UverseTV is not working. I am waiting for some guy in India to call me back after an hour of waiting for my DVR to recycle (yeah right!@#$$). It spent yesterday downloading updates them puked when it the it through a failed client error. Fast forward, I think the evening will end with a scheduled tech visit (I would bet a buck on that). OK, I am through venting on that topic.

UPDATE I just got my call back and guess what...A tech is coming to fix the DVR tomorrow and not the slave receive is not working either. Hummm...May be time to go back to DirecTV.

Back to my little world. This is the first day in 2 weeks that I have felt 100%. To fastforward, I had the flu X3 starting a week ago Sunday, ending with spending the day Saturday in bed all day sleeping for about 12 hours total. Boy am I glad that is over. I would not wish this on anyone not matter how much I hated them. I have not had anything like that in years so I guess I was due. As luck would have it, this is the first year in about fifteen that I did not get a flu shot. I in no way feel that is the reason I got it now but I find it interesting.

Now on to the good stuff. I have been just piddling with knitting lately. Not sure what new exciting thing I want to start. I am doing an Irish Hiking scarf out of wonderful purple Touch Me. It is really going to be pretty, so stay tuned. I am also working on the Hudini socks but not sure I like them yet.

Here is the Kitty Pi I did for Gracie. She was not sure about it at first but she loves it now.

On a sad note...this weekend starts Daylight Savings Time. I think I am the only one bothered by the change. I feel like I am late for everything the whole time and I am so excited and relieved when it is over. I think my inner clock just cannot reset itself. I am night person and the world is not very sympathetic to us as a rule. I normally go to bed about midnight and awake about 5:30 or 6:00 to get ready for work. I try to go earlier but if I do I end up waking earlier. This means that during DLST I end up going to bed at 1:00 but I still need to get up at the new 5:30 or 6:00 with is actually 4:30 or 5:00 my time. So as a result, I get even less sleep. Yes, it is possible to function on that about of sleep. I do it all of the time. I would not recommend it to everyone but it works for me. As you can imagine, this does not make my doctor happy as everytime I go she suggests that I really need to get more sleep. Not sure what the answer is other than getting a night job which are not very plentiful.

I am just glad that I have a job now. It is ironic that I am working a government contract because I have said many times I would not. This one may turn out to by my saving grace. Go figure.

Gracie looks comfortable in that Pi bed. And at least SHE gets to sleep in. Not much consolation, is it?
