Just as with a workout routine, an unfinished project, or a strict diet; once you leave a blog stagnant for a while, it's hard to start things back up again.
So today, my sole purpose is just that- to blow off the dust and say hello from the other side of this dormant blog. Truth be told, words have never come easy to me (at least words that need to be written out). My blog might be more lively if I got solve math equations on it every night, but I'm sure that wouldn't be very exciting from the other end.
So a quick update- we're all still here, and we're getting through. 2013 has been a busy year. I'd love to say there have been many handknits and knitting time, but this is not the season in my life for that. Don't get me wrong, there has been some knitting, but not much to post about. A few secret projects, and random newborn hat that gets sent off quicker than I can get it off the needles, but that's been about it.
There will be times in my future that will allow for more knitting- I am very hopeful for these days. This past year has brought an intense work load and it's been hard to relax enough in my down time to enjoy (or even think about) new projects. On top of work Joe is back in school full time, which has been quite a change of lifestyle. And of course you can't forget about the two toddlers that fill our lives with so much joy (and craziness!).
These days we're taking it day by day, and once again, the blog is the first thing to suffer. I do appreciate emails and comments that have come in to let me know there's some of you still out there. Random encouraging notes over the past few months have been a welcome comfort, thank you for those.
So that is life in a nutshell, I do hope to find a way to incorporate knitting/blogging in every once in a while, I hope you stick around to find out if I do!
