Holy cow, it's been a long time since I updated.

I just checked in to Stacey's bridal blog, and I realize she's had like three new posts since I last looked - I have been seriously remiss.

I feel like I've just shrunk from public view over the past few weeks. The new job didn't turn out to be what I wanted it to be; my stepdad has been in pretty bad shape for over a month now; there have been some other random acts of insanity that have come up, and basically I just withdrew, like I always do. If it weren't for Will starting school, I probably would still be like that. But seeing all the parents that I became friendly with again, and getting back into the swing of things with Will and the school helped me start coming back. So here I am, making amends one more time. So to all that I may have been blowing off, I'm sorry.

Knitting, knitting, knitting - finally started climbing out of the knitting funk and found a relatively easy but interesting blanket pattern. I'm making it for my cousin Elizabeth's 9th birthday and will post a picture shortly. It's with purple leftover Bernat Baby Yarn and it's a seed stitch diamond on a field of stockinette. There are 16 panels in the original pattern; I may add another row or two more so it will fit a 9 year old, depending on what the blanket looks like (the beauty of blankets is that I don't normally have to worry about gauge!). I took some pictures of it in progress the other night, but haven't unloaded my camera yet (so very lazy) so as soon as I do, I'll post the shots in progress.

Trying desperately to get back into the weight loss groove. Tired of being double digit sized clothing, dammit. I started coming up with a menu the night before; it worked once and really helped me see exactly what I'm eating and can do away with. I haven't logged onto the Self site in ages, tired of logging in all my calories and fat grams and seeing that my diet sucks.

So I'm up and down, but hopefully closer to the upswing.
