I’ll be better next month, I’m sure…

December 3, 2008

Oh the past two months has flown by, and didn’t even notice.

Ok, that’s a lie. I knew exactly what was going on in past few months.. I just didn’t know exactly what to do about them. Well.. it happens.

Honestly, knitting has been taking a back seat for a while. Didn’t really work on anything much, didn’t really start on anything new. I did manage to finish second Hemlock Ring blanket for Christmas gift. Actually, I finished it in October, but didn’t get to block it until right before Thanksgiving. And still no significant progress on Cyndi’s Slipped Hours pullover… In fact, (I hate to say this, but) this may not get done by Christmas. I mean, it’s not an impossible task, if I just sit down and work on it every evening, but I know it’s not going to happen.

And for the big announcement portion of this post: We’re moving!

When and where, one might ask. We’re moving to Milwaukee… and before the end of the year. Oh yes, it’s approaching really fast. And have I mentioned that I haven’t even started to pack yet?

So that should semi-explain why I have been out of my mind in past couple of months. Actually, October was just busy at work. Chris just accepted a job offer in early November, and we were just in Milwaukee during Thanksgiving break and found an apartment. (Another added note: this was my first time ever in Milwaukee)

Now I feel a wee bit better after finding a place to live. But still many questions going through my head. What are we going to do with our current place (the actual lease isn’t up until August), how are we going to move all our crap (very carefully?), when and what are we going to do about Christmas gift for people (money of course is an issue, but even with all the money in the world, it still doesn’t help that we have absolutely NO IDEA about gifts), how am I going to find a new job in Wisconsin?

… but I’m pretty sure I’ll feel much better once when I move and settle in. What a way to end a year…..

… yes, I’ll feel better in January. Or so I hope.

  1. Oh yay! It will be quite an adjustment from the west coast, but I’m a Midwest fan. We’re likely going to end up back in that vicinity soon-ish (I hope) ourselves.

    But – indeed, crazy busy times. Take a deep breath and dig in. It will all get done, one step at a time. You WILL find something job-wise in WI.

    Hang in there!

  2. Hey hey!

    You’ll be fine ;) We should hit up a Cubs game at Milwaukee. Tons of fun! (or I guess St Louis. or maybe you don’t care about baseball. I forget)

    Love the Hemlock. Mine is waiting to be blocked, but the baby shower is in a month so it is waiting.

    I pulled out my sock yarn today, so hopefully I’ll get it out to you.
