Catching up

Wow! Has it really been a month since I posted last?

Well I've been busy. They have officially moved me to another department at work. I am running a machine that detects trace metals in soil and water samples. So now I am an ICP Analyst. Sounds important, no? This department is so much more laid back and the people are a lot nicer. I actually enjoy going to work each day which is a good thing because I'm working a full 40 hour week now. Sometimes more.

We have roommates now. Our friend Jeff and his girlfriend have moved in with us for a while. They have made our basement quite homey. They are both really nice and both are absolutely hilarious. They help out around the house and also help out with the dogs. Brian was in Indiana last week working at his old job so that his manager could take a vacation. He's hoping Brian will help out more often. We'll see how it goes. Working 4 days out there pays him about twice what he'd make working here. The only person who has called him back wanted to pay him half what he was making in Indiana to do pretty much the same job. Travel time and gas are no different than if he commuted 45 minutes to work each day. He would just drive his commute in one big chunk. Again, we'll see how it works out.

I haven't been doing much sewing lately. Although I did get my area somewhat organized. I have been reading a lot and I've been trying to get out and walk the dogs and take care of my garden. My garden is doing pretty well. There are tomatoes all over the vines but none have ripened yet. I've gotten 3 little salad cucumbers off the vine. They were quite tasty. I'll never be able to make pickles though because I eat them as soon as I pick them.
