I knit or do some other handy craft. Creating things gets me past my sickness. I pick simple stuff that's not challenging and let myself really get into it. It takes me out of the "sick" mindset and reminds me that health consists of many different facets.
I finally put away all of the crafting stuff that had been cluttering my sewing table. It'd gone through a few cleanups but there were a few things I had been working on when my mom died that I could... Continue reading

I've been quiet for a little bit mainly due to busyness at work. It's been the usual. A ton of work. Small amount of time. Extremely high level of concentration needed. Life, family, hobbies quietly and sadly slip to the... Continue reading

Here she is: All the knitting was completed on, GASP!, October 21 of last year. Then the shawl languished in the eternal FINISH ME pile. Today I was having difficulty working a swatch for a new project, so I decided,... Continue reading

It's amazing how life changes. I used to be able to clean this entire apartment in about 5 hours. When single, I'd buy a cheap ass bottle of bubbly, power up the vacuum and go to town with a duster... Continue reading

Vallery and Elisabeth, thank you both so much for your sympathies. They really mean a lot to me and help with the healing.

Last year I got "access" to a yarn club. I wish I had the description in front of me because it was basically everything I like in life. Nice colors. Semisolids. I'd been waitlisted so it was super exciting to... Continue reading

I'm back and still jetlagged from the off-site in LA. This was the only thing I was waiting for before trying to get back to real life; the only "holiday" thing left to get out of the way. For those... Continue reading

I'm flying to LA on Monday for the company's annual off-site. I've been dreading and kvetching about this for at least a month now so it will be good to get it over with. I know that I'll have a... Continue reading

These were posted on Ravelry and are a direct lift but I thought I should also post them here to look back on throughout the year: Finish all my UFOs. Period. Either frog it or finish it, but get it... Continue reading

Today was the first workday of the New Year for me and things were pretty much the same as they were last year, not that I was expecting anything different. Things that were once approved need to change again; I... Continue reading

A mini-post, almost Twitter like, but today I worked out for the first time in a year. And it felt great. More plan and progress news to come on Thursday. Continue reading

I'm a bit unprepared today. But I'm still going to give it the best shot I can. I had a busy, whirlwind weekend and was exhausted by 8PM Sunday night. I opted to not prep and pack my food and decided to just get some rest. The rest was worth... Continue reading

The journey from 135 to 186 and change was not a direct one. In 2005, I weighed a healthy 130ish... That was down from the 182 I'd weighed in February. I'd lost over 50 lbs in time for my wedding day in October. I kept my weight stable for about... Continue reading

It's been a very long time since I blogged consistently - mainly because my life changed drastically from when I first started airing my thoughts. I moved from being a passionately vocal, opinionated and very open singleton, living in Manhattan, working for a DOTCOM to a wife, mother, more conservative... Continue reading
