Where Does My Joy Come From... 10/17/18

...... I rid the living room of the world's biggest spider last night. It barked and growled at me, and had plans to eat me and the poodle alive. I am a survivor. The poodle snored through all of it. But then again, she is 15. Seniors cannot be bothered with hand to hand combat.
.... a friend of mine sent me a link for a beautiful lace shawl yesterday. I bought it and will join in a KnitALong on Ravelry with her. I can't wait to see how I do. This will be an adventure. It shouldn't be too hard to find a nice yarn to use. I have so many that are waiting to be turned into something fabulous. Stay tuned.
....Today is my day off. I usually work 4 days a week as a receptionist at a chaotically busy veterinary practice. Since we had another mass exit of staff, we have been understaffed all through summer. I had offered to work 5 days a week until we get more staff hired and trained. And my boss knows I don't care at all which shifts she puts me on. I see my name on the schedule, I come in. So I would end up working 6 days in a row at times with one day off in between. It was good money indeed. She just told us yesterday, that we will get another full time and one part time receptionist. So she and I can go back to our 4 days a week. How nice it will be to have 3 days off per week again. Sanity, how I missed thee.
