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.
