Bored, bored, bored.

And after you type that three times, it looks like it is spelled wrong.

I have nothing on the needles and can't find anything I feel like knitting. I think I would like to make something for summer, but don't have any cotton/blend and really don't want to buy any new yarn until I make a dent in my stash. (I know. A knitter who DOESN'T want more yarn). I have mostly Simply Soft or similar type yarns and in a rainbow of colors, most of which probably wouldn't work well together. And I have afghans coming out of my ears thanks to my grandma. Suggestions?

On the bright side, I'm bored with being fat too. I'm nearly back up to the weight I was when I started the "5 in '05" weight loss program. I've started eating a little healthier, or at least not eating as junkier as I have been. I would love to begin walking again, but since the wind chills here have been near -15 F, there is no fucking way that is going to happen. Even the 500 yard walk from my car to the office building is brutal. But I have hope. The temperature is supposed to get all the way up to the mid 30's by this weekend. Isn't that sick? We consider 30+ to be warm around here.

On the update list:
It's been 46 days and $280 saved since I quit smoking. And not even one cheat!
My RMA exam is next Tuesday and I am in no way ready for it. I've even gotten bored with studying for it.
I have started my bi-annual de-cluttering here. I will have a pile of stuff in my garage for Freecycle, which is also something I've been bored with. I haven't bothered with that group in so long, I've actually been thinking of unsubscribing from the local Yahell group. Maybe I will after I ditch this load of stuff.

That's it. Once again I have no clean way to end this post. Except to say, as always, I love my Writer Girl.
