Tough times

Life really isn’t being kind to me.

I am working on my queue, have been for a while now, but certain things keep going wrong. For a start, the ventilation in our flat was deemed “unsafe” so Paul and I have had to temporarily move in with his parents while our landlord takes his time fixing our gas (so we can once again have heat and hot water). I get along really well with my in-laws, so things aren’t as problematic as they could be on that front, thankfully.

On top of that, I’ve had to go to the hospital twice in two weeks. We thought the first time that I had some isolated stomach bug; however, the second visit has revealed that I am suffering with either gastritis or gallstones, and until I get tests done (an ultrasound and an OGD), we won’t know which it is. I am waiting for appointment letters to come in the mail so I know when those tests will be. In the meantime, I’m on a strict low fat diet and taking medicine the doctor prescribed.

At any rate I’m glad that I’m starting to feel back up to speed and I can’t wait to get back to work. It feels really wrong not to knit for over a week. I am also planning out some prizes for SDA’s next marathon, Summer Games Done Quick 2012, but those are taking a backseat to my commission queue.

Snow snow snow

Every week, another snow storm. I should be happy, because snow means cold weather, and cold weather is prime knitting time. However, I’ve never been a fan of winter–not even when I was in elementary school and we got snow days. (Okay, snow days were probably the only good part of winter.) Lately I’ve been trying my best to ignore the snow, even as it interferes with my ability to get to the post office, but it simply can’t be done.


I just have to hope that it all stops soon, and that it will actually be warm in March. That isn’t too much to hope for the month when spring comes, is it?

Sometime later tonight, I need to take pictures of my latest work and make an “examples” page on here. I’ve been knitting a little too much, by which I mean I’ve been ignoring my site. That’s not something I want to do.
