Wow. I never intended to take a month break!Â I suppose life has been a bit hectic and generally getting in the way of all things blog worthy.Â A numbered list to explain what I’ve been up to:
Reason Number 1 reason why I haven’t blogged: Â Bloggy existential crisis.
We all have them.Â Why do I write?Â Do I still want to write?Â Ya-da-Ya-da.Â Mine was spurred by some comments left on an old post of mine (I will not link in an effort to let sleeping dogs lie).Â I do not really want to go in to it, I only mention it to highlight how much it took me by surprise.Â I have had very little negative feedback here and have always waved the flags of honesty and candor.Â I always appreciate the same in my commenters. Â It, frankly, kicked my ass to think that people would target me in a personal way for an opinion that I posted.Â Â This has all been summarized by others better than me so I’ll just refer you to my girls Cara and Stephanie, and add, “Yah, what she said you big meanies.”
After this they’re in no particular order:
Reason Number 2 why I haven’t been blogging – I have moved to a new city.
My sister, Sophia, and I exploring a part of our fair city
If this isn’t a big duh, than I don’t know what is.Â I am working here full time (telecommuting for the old job, major suckers) and still trying to get out and see stuff! and do things! and not be stuck in the freaking house all the time!Â I tried a new knit group and may have found a new book club.Â We’ll see how it all pans out.Â Meeting people sucks and I am a big woosey about it all.Â I miss my Boston Girls who are having a baby (Kellee), getting cool jobs (Jackie), moving across country (Elisa), buying houses (Melanie), sewing cute things for my kid (Debbie “given new meaning to the name Stitchy” McYarnpants), taking kick ass vacation (Maryse).Â I miss our Boston Friends and babies and I miss our house and I miss the city.Â All of this makes me sad and who wants to read a downer blog post?
Blogging time decrease – about 75%
Reason Number 3 why I haven’t touched ye old blog:
I know it’s the same old sad story, that you are all likely tired of.Â Mine is a bit different in that I haven’t actually entered any stash (well hardly any) or any projects (just a few). Â I was one of the first beta-testers and have signed up to be a Sooper Editor.Â What little time I have to spend on Ravelry I like to spend cleaning up the pattern database.Â Call me an obsessive organizing freak.Â It’s what I am and I like it.
Reason Number 4 why I can’t write:
Sigh, I just finished last night.
Reason Number 5 why the blog has gathered dust:
I am in love.
She’ll be 6 months next week.
All of these reason are still going to be here.Â But, I think I need to make some time for this.Â I read and read all of you everyday (No time to comment!) and I write in my head.Â It is my goal to sit and write more frequently.
