Wind Wind Wind

Its a very windy day here in Renton and the lights keep flickering. I'm going out on a date with my sis. The author of Post Secret Blog and book will be at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. If you haven't read the blog, you should...its very interesting.

YAY!!! for bonding time with my sister. For some reason, we are not very close. I understand that we are a few years apart (6 years) and growing up we had different circles of friends (we still do) but we are still sisters. We grew up together in the same household, she loves my kids, and I know she loves me. Up until a few months ago it was almost a battle to get her to give me a hug. Is it because I have children and a family? Or is it because I am NOT a college graduate with a degree in whatever and in a career that make me lots of money with benefits? Or is it because she just doesn't like me? And why can't I just let our relationship be whatever it is and stop dwelling on how it is not?

On another note, I made my first dollar last night at knitting as a self-employed Fiber Artist. Granted it was a couple friends that bought my hand-processed, hand-dyed, drum carded batts for spinning, but hey, making a dollar using your own creativity is quite AWESOME!!! Now if I can only figure out how to post something onto my Etsy shop and how to price it, etc....everything would be dandy.
