Wonders Never Cease

Well, will you look at that - a blog entry after a mere 6 month silence! Yeah, I know - I'm a terrible blogger. But that's ok, because all you non-existent readers are a terrible audience! There you go, we deserve each other.

Knitting Tragedy

I want to cry. Seriously. A few minutes ago, while trying to reduce the pile of cloth items that invariably accumulates in the laundry basket that habitually sits atop the dryer, I found a black (I thought) partially felted sock. I thought, "That's odd, I don't remember doing any worsted weight black socks in any yarn that would felt..."

Focus on the Good Things

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." -- Philippians 4:8

I Did Something Crazy, Today

In a move I totally cannot explain, this morning, when I woke up at 7:00 am, I decided to get up, throw on some sweats and sneakers, and go went for a run around the block, while Arazyr started the process of getting Big Girl up for preschool. I'm still not sure where this impulse came from, nor how long it will last. This could be interesting.

By the way, this is the second of two sequential days, blogging! What's next? A clean house?

Where did this come from?

I had a very odd experience, today - I woke up with a rather strange urge to exercise and track my calories. Not sure what's up with that, but I hope it sticks around!

An Open Letter to the Michigan State Legislature

Dear Michigan legislators:

I am a Westland resident, and I am writing to you today on behalf of my daughter, who will be five years old, this November. Our local school system has always observed a December 1 birthday cutoff date for school enrollment, so today, we attended her Kindergarten Round-up. While there, we were informed that Senate Bill 315-316 and House Bill 4513, currently under consideration, would, if passed, mandate a change in the cutoff from December 1 to September 1, rendering her ineligible for kindergarten this year, because of her November birthday.

Miscellaneous Updates

Ok, so first, a knitting update. I did not, in fact, manage to finish even the first sock of my dad's Christmas pair, in time for Christmas morning. I ended up popping the sock in progress, needles, ball of yarn, and all, into a gift bag. When he opened it, I told him I'd continue working on it, if he'd hand it back. The first sock is now finished, and I've got almost the entire cuff of the second sock done. Here's hoping I can finish the socks, over the next few days.

String and A Prayer

Ok, so Christmas is nearly here, and despite the fact that I decided to do very little gift knitting this year (largely on account of school), I'm significantly behind. I think I may have had a chance of making it, if I hadn't been bitten by the writing bug, right before finals. As it is, I have one gift completed, that I finished more than a month ago. The other, well... it's a pair of socks. Or rather, that's what it is intended to be. I'm on the heel flap. Of the first sock. I'm still daring to hope that I'll have the first sock completed before Christmas morning.

Kinda Weird

I've always been an introvert - at least, in the Meyers-Briggs sense. For those unfamiliar with M-B, what that basically means is that my energy and motivation generally comes more from within myself, than from others. Introverts are not necessarily unfriendly, shy, or reclusive - it just means that hanging around with other people (especially lots of other people), even when it is something they enjoy, requires energy, rather than restoring it to them – it may be fun, but is generally not relaxing.
