Misc. Notes

  1. I've been really disappointed with the last few issues of Interweave Knits. Check out the latest episode of Stash and Burn, in which they tackle the changes in the world of knitting head on, and pretty much sum up everything I had already determined about the decline of IK. It's definitely a good news/bad news sort of thing, and I have really mixed feelings about it.
  2. I recently was given the opportunity to do some knitting on consignment. After great deliberation, though, I have just reminded myself that life is entirely too short.
  3. Knitting has resumed (I am NOT a woman who likes to knit when sick. No, I like to spend time in bed with what I refer to as schlock novels when I'm sick...), and I will have a finished Christmas item today. Yay!
  4. I was back up to normal by yesterday morning, but I still have very little appetite, and I can't handle sugar. That's not a bad thing at this time of year!
  5. The Christmas tree is stable now.
  6. I have to tell my family that we're not driving home for Christmas this year. Goodie. My parents made the decision when my brother and I were born that they would not be traveling for Christmas anymore. I quite naturally expected support when we made the same decision. Instead I got a yearly family drama that has me almost dreading Christmas. We gave in and drove home last year because we were tired of fighting, but won't do that again. Besides, the Princess wants to have the party here this year!
  7. Last night I received a call from one of my oldest friends that has me very upset. So if you get an essay on the nature of friendship in here sometime soon, bare with me.
  8. We're getting the heck out of the house today. I've been cooped up for too long, and it's going to be a fabulous day!
  9. I forgot to tell you that I joined this:
I must be nuts.

Good for you for making a decision about Christmas that feels right for your family. I'm sorry to hear about your problem with your friend; glad you're feeling better. Maybe getting outside will make you feel better. xoxo

We're all nuts but we're in it together 'til the end.
