I might not be able to wear my leafy hedgerows socks, not knitting fast enough

...actually, not knitting. It's amazing how many things you have to do at home instead of knitting.

Dishes come to mind. And laundry, and eating, and sleeping...hmm. Maybe if I stop eating and sleeping I can have more knitting time. Come on, I'm not going to go around naked, gotta keep up with the laundry. If I'm not eating that means there will be no dishes to wash, and my entire food budget could go towards yarn. In fact, the entire kitchen could be converted to yarn storage!

This is a fun delusion, let's run with it while I sleep. ;)

This afternoon after hitting the gym (hard, by the way) I met up with a lady who took the bodypump class Saturday. She's an Arbonne rep. I have some of her samples to try. Day one, so far I'm in love.

If this love connection continues I'll end up buying the set, and probably looking into small business start up costs. What kind of tax breaks do home-based businesses get? What sort of reporting/tracking do you need? What's considered a write-off? Should you incorporate first? What about insurance, the business and health sort? What sort of income could I actually generate doing this part time in conjunction with my insurance career?

It would be nice to be connected to a product I believe in. So far Arbonne sounds like all good stuff.

Knitting Time

Guess how much I've knitted lately. Go on, guess! You'll never guess.

Zip, zero, nada. I have not knitted one stitch in the past week or two. Aww, sorry, I should have warned you to sit down, maybe surround yourself with pillows... you never know which direction you're going to go when you faint, best to be prepared.

Yeah, no knitting for me for at least a week. Not because I didn't have time, or didn't want to, but because I've been playing with my favorite-est hand-me-down ever: Eric's "old" iPod Touch 16GB. *squeeeeee!* I'm kind of glad I'm seeing family today (after I hit the gym with the other hard core Body Steppers out there, and my favorite instructor Sarah), it's rude to sit there playing on an electronic device with one earbud in, but knitting during conversation is perfectly acceptable. Or maybe they just expect it now and think it's weird when Jess and I don't knit. Either way, I'm going to be knitting today.

I think I'll bring my Jitterbug "velvet leaf" colorway "Leafy Hedgerows" socks to work on. I'd kind of like to wear them to MDS&W, but I have to finish them first. I'm done the first of the pair but only on the cuff of the second (cuff down). And it's what, three weeks away? Better get stitching.

Aww, Shelby just laid down on my lap.

And I need her to get up, just looked at the clock, time to get dressed and head to the gym.

Happy Easter everybody!
