Not sure what is wrong

For about a month or so, I've been having dizzy spells. I went to the doctor and they figured that I had a vertigo virus. They prescribed some meds and here I am. Still dizzy. It's really starting to get me down. The pills don't help. I've gone back to the doctor and was told that I just have to give it some time. Wow. What a big help. I can't even tolerate sitting and knitting for very long. If anyone out there reads this and has some ideas for me, I would sure appreciate it!
On another note, I started knitting a sleeve for my Kindle Fire I received for Yule/Christmas. I chose the Kindle Death pattern off of (type in Kindle in the pattern search and it will pop up). I'm using Knitpicks Swish DK in a heather grey and a pink color. I can't remember the exact color names at the moment, but they really look nice together! The pattern is very vague, so I had to start it over several times. I finally got the hang of it and am loving my first attempt at Fair Isle. I just wish I could sit and knit on it for longer periods of time. I've also been trying to keep up with the Monthly dishcloth KAL. I've finished both of January's cloths and am looking forward to starting February's. I hope we get to use pink!! :)

Just can't seem to get the hang of it

Another year has gone by and no posting on my blog. Am I really that boring? Most likely! So much has happened in 2011. The first thing that I accomplished in 2011 was to move out of my husband's home into my own. It was such a HUGE step for me. It was scary and exciting all mixed together. So if I had my own home, that means I had my own rent to pay along with many other numerous bills. I needed a job. I applied for many jobs, but the one that called me for an interview had to do with my psychology degree. This was the one for me!! I got the job and was dumped into teaching parenting classes to people that had either lost their children, or were in danger of having them taken away by CPS. I also had to do supervised visits, and drug testing for my new clients. Barely any training and tons of paperwork. Of course, no one does their paperwork like anyone else, so no matter what I did, it was wrong. (It still is, actually! Hee hee!)
I must say that I really don't like my job. It's so very stressful and upsetting. I get little to no support and would really rather put the effort into my home and family rather than helping others with theirs.
On the knitting front, I didn't finish a single thing in 2011. Unless you count a few dishcloths. I've been in my house for a year and still don't have my office/craft room unpacked yet. I'm so annoyed by this! I have projects that I would love to knit on again (or stitch) and can't find.
Speaking of things that I can't find...I was going to finish up my divorce papers this evening and go turn them in finally. No where to be found!! No, this is not a sign. This only means that I'm very forgetful and unorganized. Funny thing is, I put them in my work brief case so I wouldn't lose them. I must have taken them out and put them somewhere and can't remember what I did with them. Well, enough ramblings. Keep Calm and Carry Yarn!
