morganskye: (CocoConan)
I have spaghetti sauce all over my shirt because my food is rebelling. Fantastic. But anyway...

I finished two cross-stitch projects recently (pics pending). I've really had the itch lately! I even picked up two new floss boxes ($2.09 on sale!) so that I can give my supplies a good spring cleaning. I'm working on a Pinkie Pie piece (although I really need to make [livejournal.com profile] amayagoddess's one more). I'm honestly amazed at myself not only at the level of dedication (I stitch at minimum an hour a night), but also at just how much I'm getting out of my work. Even though I haven't touched a needle in ages I feel that my skills haven't decreased. I also work faster, which is a nice bonus. I figure I'll have Pinkie done by the middle of Feb, then it's on to AG's piece.

I gave my time off requests for the year to my boss. She thinks I'm insane (she's right!). She pointed out that for three months I'll be going though the constant nightmare of pre/post-travel stress. For about a week before I'm scrambling to get things done in time both at work and at home. Then for around a week after I get back I'm playing constant catch-up. Wait a few days and the whole thing starts again. *sigh* If I didn't have such a freaking huge ego I would cut out a few cons, but it's hard to say no when someone asks for me to run something. However I'm still waiting for the day when someone finally catches a clue and realize I'm full of crap. I can picture it. Cosplay 101 panel. Some smartie stands up and points at me "You're making this up! You're a fraud!". Then suddenly I'm in my undies while they pelt me with rotten tomatoes. I don't know who brings tomatoes to a con, but it wouldn't be a shaming session without them.

I think I need to sleep more...or less.
