I do more before 8:00am . . .

Here was my morning:

5:30 - Get up
6:00 - Wake up Monkey Boy and take Marco the Wonder Puppy out. Its dark!
6:15 - Eat a yummy breakfast of peaches and granola.
6:45 - Leave the house. Drive across bridge to mainland.
7:04 - Pick FIL up at his apartment.
7:14 - Drop FIL off at bus station (he's going to visit Gigi in Charlotte). Drive back to island.
7:20 - Monkey Boy and I admired that amazing sunrise as we drove over the bridge.
7:29 - Arrive at Monkey Boy's school.
7:33 - Drive BACK across bridge to mainland.
7:50 - Get much needed cup of coffee.
7:58 - Walk into office to start work day.

YAWN! I'm sleepy!

After reading about my exciting, fun-filled morning, I bet you want to know what I do at night. Last night I nagged Monkey Boy to finish the Hardy Boy book he was reading for a book report; helped him make a mobile (yes, a mobile) that was required as part of the book report; went grocery shopping; walked the dog; fixed a dinner of hot turkey sandwiches, mashed potatoes and carrots; did a load of laundry; stuck about 200 mailing labels on United Way pledge cards and watched House. I live on the edge, don't I!?

I have been knitting up a storm trying to get Christmas presents made. This is why I'm not posting photos. The knits are a surprise.

My New Job

In my last post I briefly mentioned that I got a new job. Here are the details: I'm the Director of Community Initiatives for the local United Way. How cool is that? My main responsibility is as Volunteer Coordinator, but I have tons of other things to do, as well.

I love the people at my office. Most of them are women, which is new for me. I can't remember the last time I worked with mostly women. Its so cool!

I'll try to get some knitting pics posted this week.
