|This is what victory looks like, people...|
Yes, that's right - after a ridiculous number of hours last night and today spent untangling the painted purple skein of sock yarn that I USED TO love, I have finally managed to conquer its knottiness. There are 2 balls there because the yarn was split in one place, which probably contributed to my winding problems in the first place.
No, this isn't turning into a knitting blog. I just needed to vent. Also, this is what passes for excitement around here.
In fact, it's been so exciting, I forgot to mention that I finally met Juggling Jenn in person a couple of weeks ago. She was in DC to advocate for better treatment for eating disorders, yet she made time in her busy schedule to get together with me for dinner. I met her at her hotel and we walked a few blocks to see the White House, something I hadn't done in, oh, about 2 decades. That's the problem with living near our nation's capital - you take it for granted, and a visiting tourist ends up having to show you around.
We spent a few hours talking about everything and anything - blogging, eating disorders (of course), kids, mental health care. Jenn was exactly as she appears to be in her blog, which was a relief. We've read each other's posts for just about forever (in blog years), so it felt like catching up with an old friend.
Gosh, I love blogging. Too bad it's dead. Soon it will only be old ladies like me left on Blogspot and Wordpress and Typepad. Everyone else will be all witty on Twitter and annoyingly cloying on Facebook (What a great day! I have the best hubby!), and I will still be here reminiscing about kids and vomit and mice.
And listening to "Glory Days" on my IPod, of course...
