1: Finished my first ever knitted arm warmer! Got to finish its sibling. Efrain loves them and wants a pair of his own! Can't wait to try to make a cabled pair after this set. If all goes well, I can make a bunch of these to have around, give to loved ones, and once I feel comfortable, I'll knit my own socks!

Knitting is turning out to be a lot of fun. I really enjoy the zen-type feeling I get while I'm doing it and the finished project is a great accomplishment! Now if I could just convince Robin that he does not want to play with the bamboo needles or the yarn, I'd be doing things a lot faster.

2: I did most of the rearranging of the bedroom today. We moved the bed to the side of the room, rather than the center. Suddenly there is a lot more room. Moved other furniture to compliment it and have enough room to have other people sleep in the room with us - on the areobed of course.

Again, Robin was in the middle of everything. I don't know if he wants to be part of the fun, or if he's trying to be a royal pain in the ass. Honestly though, he made part of the work harder, because I was moving the cat more than I was moving other stuff. He also kept knocking things over, getting into stuff, and just being a general pain in the butt. I wouldn't trade him for the world, but I wish the hell he would be a little more well behaved sometimes.

The room looks a lot better to me now. Knowing that I have the space to put everything that is in the room where it belongs, or looks like it belongs. I know the cats will be a pain in the collective ass about the windows still, but I'm not directly next to it anymore, so I don't have to worry about cat ass in my face. As sad as it will be, there will not be something next to my head for Robin to perch on and poke me in the nose with his paw when he wants my attention. He'll just have to do it the old fashion way and walk up the bed, or lay on my back. Nothing wrong with that.

3: Ordered a dress for my friend's wedding. I've found it very hard for me to find proper dresses for weddings anymore. Most people just don't seem to dress up anymore and that makes me sad. I find myself usually overdressed, so I'm going for something comfortable and pretty, good for the occasion and the time of year. Now to find a nice pair of shoes and I'm set - almost three months in advance. Good thing I don't plan to get married, because christ, the mess I'd be in, if I have this hard of a time finding something to just sit in the congregation. I want so much to honor my dear friend on their special day, because to me, going dressed frumpy or in a tubetop and flipflops just not work. It's a special day, it might not be your special day, but it's important to be respectful of the bride and groom.

4: Been reading a lot of sci-fi lately which has been making me think about writing a sci-fi story. Need to get my brain in gear of telling a story so that others will understand it, rather than the kind of disjointed mess you get when you tell yourself a story. I don't know if other people find themselves irritated that their writing doesn't come out the way they envisioned the story to be. I find that because a good number of things come in mental images I need to learn to work on my description of what I'm "seeing", as well as what I'm "hearing" and "feeling" (sense wise). It's something I need to work on.

5: Been making the beginnings of plans to go to Florida, but now I'm finding that I'd also like to go out to the San Jose area for a short visit also. I know that I'll see a lot of people in July at the con, but I'm getting a bit of wander lust. I figure that the trip to Florida will help quite a bit and can't wait to finally see the beaches there and spend time with good friends and have fun playing with kids.

I know there are other good things, but hell, 5 is a great place to stop. Things have been going well and I'm happy that spring is finally here and Rita's is right around the corner, so when I want to get a gelati when ever I want, though right now the teaming crowds of insane Pennsylvanians are keeping me safe in my house away from their monster cravings for flavored ice and gelatis or iced custard.

Okay, of to Chick-fil-A before we go to the movies!
