Not posting for a while is kind of like taking too long to email a friend back (of which I have way to much experience with.) You keep meaning to write but every day/week/month you wait, all the things you have to cover just grow exponentially. The more you have to write, the harder it is to find the time to write until you either never write or you break down, skip all the fun details, say “life has been busy”, and start from scratch. I am trying to fight the urge to do either one of these things.
I really do have stuff I want to share. The summer was crazy….I moved!, started a new job!, went to China!, sewed 3 skirts + 3 shirts+ 1 dress!, started a new fitness plan!, became roommates housemates with my parents!, frogged and casted on again for the carp!, watched the 1st season of Big Bang Theory on DVD! (okay, so maybe I did have some time to blog.) Anyway, crazy times for me. When I move to another city I feel a little like I am hitting the reset button on my life. It is kind of an awesome/strange feeling. I like fresh starts for the same reason I like new year’s and birthdays. I like taking stock, making changes, and the promise of the unknown. But it takes a little time for me to feel comfortable in my skin, to settle. And even though this time I moved to a familiar place, I still felt unease that for me only calms with time. I miss my apartment and my supermarket and my neighborhood and my restaurants. But most of all, as my dear friend Shelley would say, I miss my people. (My Denver people that is, thankfully, I do have Salt Lake people that I don’t have to miss any longer.)
All this to say that thanks to this angst-y adjustment time, I have gotten out of the blogging habit. But, things are changing. Pieces are falling into place and it is starting to feel normal that I live here again. And of course…it is October. I LOVE October. Good things happen in October. So maybe it is my calming down life or the magical month of October that is bringing my blogging mojo back but either way, here I am, and I will be back soon with some fun news and maybe a peek at what little knitting I have gotten done.
