I was just starting to get over the whole “I blinked and 2008 disappeared” thing until I looked up at the calendar and realized I’ve also just blinked and lost all of the month of January and half of February.
Things are starting to get a little crazy around here, and the knitting has basically fallen out of my radar since Christmas. I think I burned myself out with all the deadline knitting. Since then I’ve started a baby gift and am almost done with a pair of socks. That’s all I have to show for January and February so far.
I’ve been hibernating big time. I escaped to Chicago last weekend for our anual Whirlyball game which was a blast as always. I’ve been sucked into Facebook. And I’ve been trying to keep the Tivo clean while sitting in front of the laptop. Kind of a quiet unexciting existance.
However, I’m also planning for what will be a fairly monumental life change come early April. Mike lost his job in December (it was going to happen regardless of the recession, it just had stellar timing) and we had sort of been holding out for that end before taking steps to close the geographical gap. I go out to Cali on a one way ticket at the end of March, and we are road tripping back to Michigan with whatever he can cram into his car (and shipping the rest). It’s a huge step.
So in addition to hibernating and not knitting, I’ve been trying to figure out where he’ll “fit” and just generally clear out some space for him so he actually feels like he lives here and isn’t just visiting all my stuff.
