I’ve thought about blogging every now and then the last few weeks, but never manged to myself to actually blog. Well, I started a week or so ago on a post then got distracted by something (Squirms woke up from a nap?) and never got back to it. Things are busy and we’ve been sick and I’ve been writing so many letters I have no words left afterward. But, still, no one ever said a blog post has to be long or super thought-out. Just some words posted that are true and maybe a bit funny. A photo or two if it makes sense. One of those benefits of not doing it professionally – I can suck at it and do it rarely. I may lose all of you by taking these long breaks but, eh, whatever. This is for me, not you all.
In no particular order, the top 5 things that have occupied me these last few weeks:
1. Knitting – Made two shawls/scarves and one baby sweater. I have a few photos of each so maybe FO posts will come later, after I get them to their recipients. I also started on a lace, fingering-weight sweater for myself but it just doesn’t hold my interest. Knitting, in general, is sort of out for me.
2. Work – Things are starting to shape up there. I feel like I finally found my place on the team and have the resources to accomplish what needs to be done. And the move of my physical workplace has moved to late April so I’ll get to keep my short commute for awhile longer.
3. Letter writing – I wrote 40 letters plus four replies in January. So far in February, I’ve written 15 plus three replies. So you can see why I feel like I have no words left.
4. Being sick – I first started feeling unwell right after Matt got home from a business trip to Seattle on January 16th. I was almost back to normal when I caught the flu from Squirms. She was sick for a week two different times (one stomach thing then the flu) and Matt hasn’t felt great for a week or so. Four and a half sick days for me in the last two weeks. I’m far better than I was but my ear is still full of fluid and I had to skip karate today for the third time because I don’t have enough energy.
5. Watching TV – Even more than usual, as I’ve been sick. Started watching The Good Wife when Matt was in Seattle and have made it all the way to season 4. Yeah, it’s pathetic.
As I start to feel better, I may be back to writing here more regularly. We’ll see. For now, I’m going back to the couch to enjoy the rest of our weekend without Squirms (she’s at her grandparents’ house).
