Welcome to hell

We're at the start of hell week for me... squeezing two weeks of work into five days. It's already gotten better than it was going to be... I almost lost all of my Friday because I almost had to drive up to NYC, pick someone up for the station, and drive all the way back to Delaware... in one shot. That's about 8 hours in a car. Thanks, but no thanks. Luckily, I was able to avoid that long ass drive and now just have to pick someone up from the train station that is a mere minutes away.

I picked the busiest time of the year to go away on vacation. This is the week of our big charity event at the station, and we're supposed to volunteer our time during the week. Well, not gonna happen. Sorry, kids. You can't take my Thursday and my Friday away from me this week, but I'll gladly give you all of my Saturday.

So far today, I really want grilled cheese for lunch, but no way of getting any. I have to be my boss today because his daughter is sick, which means all of my work + all of his work. I have a crushing headache that makes me want to fall over (but a bit better once I drank some Dr Pepper). AND I have so much to get done that I don't know where to start, hence blogging.

I've been slacking a bit on my knitting as of late... I am halfway finished my Vine Yoke Cardigan, but I need to wind more yarn! I'm also 1/3 of the way finished a top secret project I'm working on for a knitting swap that is based on LOST (what? I know. I'm uber nerdy). And then I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this past weekend (and met some LOVELY ladies from ravelry!) and bought TOO MUCH YARN! I haven't even used the stuff that I got from LAST year's MDSW! But it was so pretty!!! And so soft!!! I just need to figure out what to do with 560 yds of worsted superwash merino that is black, grey, and white. Thoughts? Not enough for a little short-sleeved cardigan.

Grilled cheese for lunch and none available? That is beyond cruel. We can get them downstairs in our building and it's a saving grace :)

Yeah, we don't have a cafeteria or anything where we can go. We have a kitchen...which has a vending machine, coffee machine, microwave, and refrigerator, but that's about it. I usually go out for food, but I don't like going out to a restaurant alone. I still didn't get my grilled cheese. We have no bread at home :(
