The Bad, The Good and The 'Heroic'

THE BAD

Wayne got laid off on Thursday. It sucks. It's a little scary - I mean, we've got two little people to feed and we've become a little comfortable with our bourgeois, middle-class lifestyle.

THE GOOD

We are okay with the aforementioned bad. Better than okay. We believe that God will take care of our needs, He is our Provider. Also, this was the swift kick in the pants that we needed to move to Hot-lanta.

That's right, there will be no job seeking in Orlando. We're selling the house and getting the heck out of here. Wayne's got some resumes circulating in the A-T-L and we're hoping to move in the next month or two.

MORE GOOD

I've managed to do a little knitting. Here's the beginning of Katja for Emily. I'm using elann.com's Sonata Print and it's looking like a great substitute for the suggested yarn. This pattern is super cute and intuitive, so modifications are really easy.


EVEN MORE GOOD

My final package from my amazing Secret Pal arrived on Saturday - 5 skeins of KnitPicks Bare Fingering Weight yarn!!! I'm so excited to get out my dyes from Christmas and make some beautiful yarn - but the house is in 'sell me' mode and I don't want to have any accidents. :)


And my sweet Emily can sit up almost completely unsupported! She's enjoying her toys and her new perspective on the world.




THE "HEROIC"

Our great friend, Nick, the one from Sea World, went to a Sci-Fi Convention a week ago and guess who he met???????
Sylar and the Cheerleader!!!
He brought us copies and made it on our fridge. :)

That's a bummer, but I'm glad you all seem to be taking it in stride. Here's to a smooth move and easy relocation! :)
