Scattered mind

Have you ever had mornings or days or weeks when your mind feels like a bunch of marbles scattered EVERYWHERE?  I've been up for an hour and I swear I haven't looked at anything for longer than 2 minutes.  And in those 2 fleeting minutes my eyes don't want to read or see what is in front of it.

The more I want to get something done, the faster the clock seems to tick.  Some say they like the sunrise.  Well I don't because it means the rest of the world is waking up and this time is no longer all mine.  I get a twinge of regret that I wasted so much time.  But honestly, the waste was not for the lack of trying!

Man, this is going to be a long day.  

Marble = synapses in my brain
Bowling ball = work

What I really want is to knit.

Sweater #1

So I'm knitting 2 sweaters for my coworker's boys.  My coworker did the thing that many knitters love: he made a special request for hand-knitted items.  =)  It makes me smile just to know he appreciates what I do (at least, that's what I'd like to think!).

So here is sweater #1 for Leo's 18 month-old Nico.  It's a boat-neck sweater with a wide body.  The sail boat in the middle fits the sweater well, don't ya think?

Sweater #2 just got cast-on, and hopefully I can finish it before the older boy Dominique turns 7!

Lastly, a gratuitous picture of our little boy:

Time flies

Wow...I can't believe Christmas and New Years day passed already.  It really is the year 2010!  I've worked at Verifone for 2 years, while Tim and I have been married for 2 and a half.  Wow Wow Wow.... amazing how time flies.

Speaking of Verifone, I found a video that actually makes my company look "cool."  If you want to see a part of our business, check out:

Tim and I were recounting some of our most memorable events in 2009.  Moose definitely was one of them. He's cute beyond believe and has a pension for things in our laundry basket.  He also loves to drag the socks off my feet then bury them.  Here's what I mean:

See the buried sock "treasure"?
