Knitting Woo

Aug. 15th, 2014 | 12:46 am

I finished knitting the sweater for Miranda's son. I used this Bulky Wintuk yarn that I think they stopped making. The labels were Montgomery Ward. It was among the boxes of yarn my grandmother left to me. It's too bad they stopped making it, because it is a really nice soft and warm bulky yarn. The color is nice too. It's called Green Heat. (I wonder who comes up with the names for the yarn. Some of them are amusing.) I have some more of the same yarn in blue and a nice red. I plan on making some matching mittens to go with the sweater and I was thinking of making another pair of red ones to go with it as well.
I think the sweater looks nice and I made it a little bigger so he can grow into it, because he's going to be a very tall boy at the rate he's growing. :)

Pet Therapy

mood: calm calm

Sport(our dog) and Loki(our cat) always seem to know when I am sad or not having a good day. I went to lie down for a little while yesterday and just take a nap, just recharge my batteries. As I was lying there, I look over and I see two sets of ears and eyes peering over the bedside at me. I patted the bed, which let them know they were invited to come up. So Sport curled up on side of me and Loki nestled against me on the other side, we all let out a big sigh together, and just napped.
It helped, a lot. Sport is always a calm presence when it's quiet time, and Loki purring is a nice soothing sound. I felt so much better after our nap. =)

I'm trying to give Ash the benefit of the doubt after talking to his best friend Rob. However, the situation makes Ash look REALLY REALLY bad and it's extremely suspicious. But I'm taking Rob's advice into account and I'm waiting for an explanation from Ash because he does have a point. Ash has always been upfront about everything, he says exactly what he thinks and doesn't hide anything.
So I'm trying to keep a calm front and just see what he has to say before I jump to immediate conclusions. The other half of that is if I find that my convictions are right, I'm done. Ash knows I won't play the bullshit game, so we'll talk later and see how this pans out.

Work Comedy

music: The Clash: London Calling

So it seemed like a typical Sunday work day right? I got up early and Little Grundy (His brother who I am also friends with we call Grundy, he's the older hence the nickname) picked me up and we made the trek to work. We did the coffee etc. and I had two big cups. Let's face it, while I love that I get lots of morning shifts, I will never be a morning person ever. I need lots of help. Coffee helps.
I check the work email and my boss claims he doesn't want any overstock in the multimedia cage. I had explained that there was no room at the time because they sent me something like 180 copies of Juno and really where exactly am I going to put 180 copies of Juno? There is room now, because I did some shifting and maneuvering and managed to get most of it out on the floor. It's still a work in progress, but I'm managing to beat it into submission which is pleasing me. :D
Our registers are dying slow painful deaths. One register, the drawer won't open at all. The other register the screen monitor went dead. This morning when I was helping someone, all the registers decided to go offline mid transaction. The service manager on duty was thrilled by that. All I could do was laugh and the guy I was helping had a sense of humor about it too. "Isn't it great that technology makes our lives easier?" he quipped with a grin and I couldn't help but laugh.
The other manager asked me why I wasn't helping with register later during the day. There was no room. Everyone we had was up there and I explained to him that two of the registers weren't working properly. When I explained about the monitor screen being busted on the other one, he tells me, "Well it would help if it was turned on." Did I let him do this? Yes, I did. I let him turn it on and twist it around while calmly telling him it's been broken for a week and a half now and they've been trying all week to get tech support to come fix it. He's still fiddling with it and realizes that I am indeed correct. So it's me looking at him and him looking at me and then the shrug of defeat and he tells me, "*Siggggh* I'm sorry." basically telling me that I was right! Ahahahahah, Erin and I were cracking up over it because he does have a need to be right and it amuses us, but he is a really good guy.
There was also picking his nose guy. One of the girls tells me she offered to help the guy and he's picking his nose the entire time and she's trying not to think about it. Then the guy (She tells me, "I swear to god I'm not kidding) wipes his finger on the side of our search computer and on the desk.... Oh lovely. Erin's reaction and mine was instantly, "Geezus ew." followed by laughter, because what can you do other than laugh? Erin said she felt like she was in a comic book all day because of some of the antics. I kind of got that impression myself.
I'm just glad that I have a day off tomorrow. Ash said he was going to try and come down tonight which makes me happy and smile. It will be nice to enjoy my time off with him. =)

Lorrie and Ash Meet Everyone

Apr. 29th, 2008 | 01:44 am
mood: loved loved

Today was the day Gary drove down and we went to see Ash. Byron came too! So both of my close friends got to finally meet the guy who is so important to me. I also got to finally meet Bam (Ash's boss) and all the guys Ash works with every day. I took a few pictures. My only regret is that the pictures are kind of blurry especially the one of me and Byron, but the spirit of these pictures is alive! :D
I admit to being a little nervous. I found out I didn't need to worry. Both Byron and Gary said they liked Ash a lot and it's really clear that he's a good guy and loves me like crazy. =)
Ash and I also had the most important talk of our relationship. We discussed everything about the moving in thing. Ash was right. It was silly of me to feel that I couldn't talk to him. I loved him all the more for saying, "You should never be afraid to talk to me about anything. I love you so much, and I care about you being happy. You can tell me absolutely anything, no more hiding baby okay?"
The answer is no not right now. I explained to Ash this is why I hadn't brought it up. It's just not feasible at this time. He just got out and hasn't worked in four months, also the van's not on the road yet, and he doesn't want to live off me. He said he wants to be able to take care of me. So we're waiting and we're both feeling good about it. Also, I know how important this tattoo apprenticeship is for him. I do not want anything to get in the way of that, because he is doing what he loves which I know is seriously a big deal. I told Ash I care about his happiness too and he kissed me telling me that's why he loves me and that's why we work so well together.
He said that once his apprenticeship is over it will be easier because he is their custom artist and he'll be able to work by appointment only. Bam confirmed this, to put my mind at ease. =) So we wait a while and we love each other even more if that's possible. =)
Ash's boss is seriously nice. Everyone I met was very cool. Bam told me, "It's nice to finally meet you girlie!" He was so funny and awesome, I just found myself liking him right away. =) So we went out to lunch and got to hang out with Ash at the new tattoo place, watched a couple of movies, just got to spend the day together. We were all leaving, and Bam gave me a very enthusiastic hug saying how nice it was to meet me. Ash laughed about it later tonight saying that it was because I was a hot chick and Bam loved my awesome boobs. XD I was laughing over the phone (I called Ash when I got home so he knew I got home alright awww) asking if his boss said that. Ash says, "Let me ask him! Hey did you notice that my girlfriend has amazing tits?" I'm cracking up as Bam says in this sarcastic voice, "I hadn't noticed." Ash told me I should have seen the grin on his face and then I hear Bam saying, "You're one lucky bastard for those." to Ash. Hahahahah! XD
The grand opening for the new location of the tattoo shop is on May 2nd. There's a big party going on Wednesday for it. Ash showed me around a bit and it is really nice. He's going to do more sketches for my second tattoo and I'm excited. =)
So we're both busy the rest of the week because I have the Barbara Walters event and Friday night, Blue Cheer has a huge gig going on. Ash is going to do his best to make it down here for me singing. =)
However, next Thursday I have the day off. Ash said to not make any plans, he's coming down all day for the weekend and that Thursday is my day. I laughed and he tells me, "Baby, I'm serious." He told me again Thursday is my day and we're going to do whatever I want, he's turning his phone off and it's just going to be me and him. He reminded me again tonight when I called him and told me he loves me so much and he can't wait for next week. I just can't stop smiling and I'm sure I've got the sweetest boyfriend in the world. Ash, I love you just as much. I'm so glad I'm with you. <3 That being said, goofy picture time! Me, Ash, and Gary look so funny here! XD

Ash and Lorrie Reunited!

mood: loved loved

So as a pleasant surprise, Ash came to see me on Wednesday night after work. So I got to spend all of Wednesday evening, and Thursday my day off with him. We both had to work today, so he dropped me off this morning. We missed each other a lot. We played with the camera some, but there will be more pictures later in the week. There's one of us together and you can't see it in the picture, but Ash is totally copping a feel. The other one we both found amusing is the one of our feet. We were both laughing like little kids over how tiny my feet are next to Ash's. =)
I'm going to see him again on Monday on my day off. Gary's going to drive down and we're going to do a lunch thing which will be fun.
Just hearing Ash tell me how much he missed me caused me so much happiness. It's nice to know he missed me the way I missed him. Also, he very sweetly tells me that I'm more beautiful than ever and I don't know what I did to deserve someone so wonderful, but I'm glad I'm with him. <3 Enjoy the silly pictures!

Ash and Lorrie Reunited
Tiny Feet!

I give up the pictures are huge even after resizing and whatever. Ash is cracking jokes that it's fine, his feet seem even bigger. XD
