I have the blogging blahs. Actually, I have the blahs in general. Don’t get me wrong, life is good. Maybe it’s the time of year, maybe it’s just the little frustrations. Work has been frustrating. For the fourth time in two years, I’ve hired a great employee, only to have her leave after two months for greener pastures. I understand each person has to look out for herself, etc., but a litte more sticking power would be nice. Fortunately I’ve been able to hire a provisional dental assistant to get us through a scheduled employee leave, but I’m a little concerned about her too. She’s coming from a huge dental practice in Eastern Washington and I’m a little nervous that she’s going to come prepared to teach us country hicks just how a dental office should be run. Hmmm – I sound a little cynical, don’t I?
Perhaps it’s my college class, the Psychology of Women. There are a lot of interesting points in this class, but I’m tired of hearing how everything is a conspiracy by a patriarchal society to keep women beaten down and powerless. Personally, I always considered it a privilege to stay home when my baby was born and kind of felt sorry for my husband that he had to go out and make a living for us. And grateful too – thanks honey!! And I like pink and playing with dolls – so what if that makes me a pawn of a sexist male dominated society?
Ok, enough whining. Wanna see what I did today?
Another cute little Izzy dress. It looks huge to me, but it’s the same size as the last one, which fits her well enough to wear now, but with room to grow. I also decided to embellish the quilt I showed you several weeks ago:
I think the butterflies really add some pizzazz! Tomorrow I’m off to Bellingham for another class – but I called ahead and confirmed this time! Word has it that we’re doing a cute tote bag. A girl can never have too many cute tote bags! Egads! I’d be drummed out of my Psychology of Women class for that quote. However, being named to the President’s Honor Roll for fall quarter will take the sting out of that!
Still working on the Forest Path Stole, but to tell the truth, picutres from here on out will just be more of the same, so don’t know if it’s worth posting every time. Instead, I will leave you with this – can you believe how grown up she looks? Very big sisterish!
