Knitting…? What knitting?


Have you read my other blog post from today?? 

I knew I was going to be busy, but I…for some odd reason…didn’t think about how much it would impact my knitting.  I have knit a total of maybe 10 minutes this whole week.  Yes, 10 minutes…for the WEEK.  I’ve been so tired this week that even when I’m sitting still for a moment (in the car, on break at school) I just haven’t wanted to do anything.  Week one of school wasn’t bad, week two…meh… Week…week four – kicking my ass.  Now that I’ve come to the exhaustion stage, my body will make peace with it and I should start feeling better.  It took me longer to get to this “dead-tired” point than I thought, but here I am…and I can’t even remember how to spell my name.  :-/

I really…..REALLLY… so friggin’ close to finishing that damn Frank hat…  I did the photo tutorials on the very few (two) tricky parts of the pattern and now all that’s left is a few “action” shots of the hat…the one’s I took last week were total crap (trying to take a decent “posed” photo of yourself sucks).  I will be enlisting Avery this weekend to help me out as my Frankie model…possibly tonight if we have time.  After that, it’s done.

Just a reminder: End of Summer Sale is still on in the Shop, thru September 22nd, longer if you ask nice!  ; )

Happy weekend, all!!

Today, without my heart…

If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…
there is something you must always remember,
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is,
even if we’re apart…
I’ll always be with you.
–Christopher Robin to Pooh

She was my biggest support. I was perfect in her eyes. She made me feel better with just a word, or a smile. She made me feel like I could do anything, could take on the world and win. She made me feel special, loved beyond reason and never alone. She was the biggest influence in my life, the person that made me want to be a better person. She was most of my mind, heart and soul.

I can’t hear the word “sunshine”, look at a rose or lilac, eat an ear of corn, smell buttermilk or hear the Oakridge Boys without thinking of her.

She took a huge chunk of me with her when she left. My world will never be quite whole again. The edges are still raw, even after two years. I can’t talk about her without crying…can’t type about her either.

September 12th sucks. I wish I could just skip this day.

I miss you Mamaw…I can’t even begin to express how much.
