Feeling Just A Little Rusty

Good day !

This is my first attempt in months to post on my blog. Thank you for the Ravelry messages, emails and cards. Thank you for your concern. Everything is fine, I wasn't ill. I only had another huge life change, that's all !

Our contract ended with the company I had been working for. This was a total surprise and all I can say is that I am pleased with myself and happy that I am a good budgeter and saver. Nothing like an economical surprise. Whew ! -- Secondly because that job ended I was forced to look again at the big picture. My big picture. I did some soul searching and went into a program at university that is so totally opposite of what I've been doing for years. I felt like a stranger in a strange land. My first two quarters of school were intimidating to say the least. Well, you can imagine. I'm comfortable with being back in school now. I've befriended new people and I have received lots encouragement which is helpful at my age !

Secondly, I actually got a wonderful new job that is in my new field and I like it ! I work a lot of hours so between school and the new job my social life has gone kind of kaput. It's okay.

When I am not working, studying or attending lecture I watch movies and knit in bed. I've knit a lot in the past few months. I just haven't blocked much. Sooooo, I plan on blogging again and as I block an item I will post about it. Hey, sounds like a plan if I must say so myself !

Of course I was going to post a couple of projects today but for some reason blogger is not down loading them. Seems like the last time I blogged Blogger was acting up. Darn !!!

I will try again in a few days.

Thanks for your patience,

Carolyn
