A Catch Up Post

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I swear!

I'm still around, albeit a lot less than usual. I still read as many blog posts as I can in a day. I still wonder what became of our friend 'Judy', and if she's doing alright. I think about our friends Carla, Jane, Rafiki, marc, Lamb, Jenny & Sarah, Sam, Mysti and all the others that I haven't mentioned.

I've been knitting every chance I can get, and I'm finding that the more I do, the more ideas for new projects pop into my head. There are so many things that I want to make! (I even snuck some new yarn into the house; a partial pre-birthday gift from my MIL.) I'd love to say that I've finished a few knitted objects but I can't. I seem to do well at starting and not so well on the finishing, lol.

Work has been keeping me busy as well. Unlike a typical part-time job where you would go in for a few hours each day, I find that I am working up to 8 or 9 hours in one day, then take a day or two off, then work another full day (or more). There isn't much I can do to change it, and I understand that the nature of the industry is like that. I don't really mind either.

A terrible cold had me going slower than usual as well. I don't get the luxury of 'calling in sick', so I do what I can, when I can, and rest lots when I get the chance. Hubby has been wonderful about making dinners and dealing with the kids so I can sleep. I sometimes wonder what I ever did to deserve such a good man.

My birthday is coming soon, and I've been reevaluating and taking stock with life in general. More about this soon.


  1. My birthday is coming up soon too...and I am reevaluating things as well. I am interested to hear your thoughts.

    I too am terrible at "finishing" projects. But I am getting closer!

    Are you going to show us some pics of your works in progress?

  2. All I'm going to say about birthday's is that turning forty is FAB...

  4. Working full time along with a family is a HUGE workload, that time for yourself!!!

  5. I'm missing your posts! Glad you're still alive & kicking!! ;) Hope you find some spare time so you can post more often! ;)

  6. Nice to hear from you Eboo! I too miss Judy and also Canadian Saver. I just hope we'll see them again soon. If you're birthday is soon does that make you a Taurus because I'm a Gemini and I thought it was only Geminis who didn't finish what they started!! I start LOTS of projects but don't care so much about finishing them!

  7. Hope you are feeling much better! Take care of yourself.
