Ok, yeah I missed the post on Friday. I mostly lost track of time throughout the day due to how busy I was. I also think a part of me really hates seeing that picture of me on the blog. It's a horrid picture and completely unflattering. It also makes me really come to terms with my roundness. Now, you would think this wouldn't be a shock. I knew the clothes were getting bigger. I knew I was having a harder and harder time being active. You just have to understand the last real photo I had taken was at my wedding seven years ago. Seeing anything current is...well...Shocking.
According to this article, I have the equivalent of 2 medium size turkeys (Potentially deadly turkeys. Who knew??) hanging on my chest. If that's the case, I have an entire cow hanging off my hips and a decent sized goose on each thigh. I'm a fucking barnyard. I think it's time to start killing us some chickens, Maw. Yes, I have a plan for doing something about it, but more on that later. This isn't a diet and exercise blog. Although it might become one and I don't blame you for running as fast as you can from the crazy lady I will become.
On the yarn front, I've had to do some serious rethinking. I know that some of you may go into some sort of apoplectic seizure so I am warning you, this is not for the faint of heart.
I don't think I like knitting.
I'll give you a moment.
Yes, I know how to knit. I am not a Knitter. Hell, I'm not even a knitter. I'm a Crocheter who knows how to knit. I have begun avoiding my projects because they are all cast on needles. Not a hook in sight. I picked up a crochet hook on Friday evening to test a theory. I grabbed some acrylic (Hang in there guys, just take deep breaths. I know this is a lot thrown at you at once.) from the stash and went to town. It's the most relaxed I've been in months. It's the most at peace I have felt in months. I wanted to cry it felt so good to have that hook in my hand. I've already completed 1/8th of an afghan for my brother's wife. I found myself being torn between Guild Wars and yarn for the first time in a long time.
I am having fun with my yarn again.
This was not an easy conclusion to come to. I have even been hiding projects from my Dear Stalkees. It's time to come clean to the blogging world and I will do so. Next post. Besides, I have to quit giving Christina things to hold over me and beat me with when I don't post on time. Hehe
Next post: What the Stalker has been doing behind (almost) everyone's blog backs.
Hope everyone has a great day!
