No title

I have had a whirlwind last few days, so I apologize ahead of time if this is a very scattered post. First, I did finally get my swap package mailed off and she got it in time for Valentine's Day, Yahoo! I had received mine the week prior and felt so guilty because although I already had everything bought, I just didn't get it to the post office in time! I also did receive my swap from Heidi at Spiritual Knitter, it was from the Christmas swap. A little overdue but I understand since she had just been so busy with her new baby. I do have pictures to post, but alas my batteries died as I was loading them! Bah!
Next, I will be starting a new job again in a couple of weeks. It literally came out of nowhere, and I wasn't looking so it took me by surprise and I'm still a little shell-shocked. Looking forward to it, but also a little nervous.
I have also been crocheting some more. Luckily for me there is a lady at work who crochets and she showed me what the stitches should look like. That was always where I would start to get confused. I would read the pattern and think I got it, but then start and it just would look NOTHING like the picture so I'd know I didn't really get it! The first heart I made turned out so cute, I'm going to make more :)
I went to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic" last night and I LOVED it! I was laughing out loud in that really embarrassing way - no one else was laughing and I couldn't stop! Hee, hee - who cares? It was one of those that you leave and wish it was already out on video so you could just go buy it!
Yesterday was a crop (scrapbooking) with a group of regular ladies. It was soooo nice to see everyone! And really, I haven't seen them for like 3 months! Crazy. I very literally did not even get anything accomplished. I have an idea for my page though!
Oh, yeah, here's also my memory verse for today:
1 Samuel 7:12 (New International Version)
12 Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far has the LORD helped us."
It is really, really relevant for me right now! I am ever trying to rely on Him, so "thus far has the LORD helped me".

Crochet possibly?

Okay, crochet is soooo not my strong point, BUT I saw the cutest project in the Joann's mailer I received the other day! I think I have to try it, and looking at the pattern I think I might even be able to pull it off! (like I need another project!) I am almost done with my Valentine's swap, need to get that in the mail this week fo sho! I had soooo much fun shopping for everything, I got to pick out stuff that I would love to get because my partner is a fellow scrapbooker! So, I'm hoping she'll like everything. I'm also working on a gift for one of my best friends in the whole world. Hee, hee - I kind of like having this kind of secret!
Oh, man! I can't believe I forgot this - Michael's opened this past weekend! I was so there, and it's pretty fabulous except for one teeny snag. They don't have a classroom! Can you believe that? I mean, for real - how am I going to take fun classes? Everything was brand new, the carts, the whole store - loved it!
