January has been an unusually crazy month. Life seems to be getting back on track, though - we had a wonderful mini vacation down in South Beach, Miami, and that definitely has set a better tone for heading into February.
Lost in the sleep-deprived parenting chaos that took over our lives was my SECOND BLOGIVERSARY. January 15th, 2004 marked my first post - no comments on that one, but Carrie was already commenting by post #2. Can you believe it's been 2 years, Carrie?? Oh how the schmoos have grown!
My knitting has been on the back burner for a couple weeks. I've been madly trying to finish up a report for the city for a community green space project. Like many things it was supposed to be done by the end of 2005, but got put on hold in October with the arrival of little X. Lots of money (over a million dollars) has been earmarked already to get the project rolling, and the city is just waiting for this report to give them guidance on next steps. I feel so incredibly guilty for having held things up, but since I'm volunteering my time and energy on this I suppose they will take what they can get. Anyhoo - its almost finished (up to page 114 already!) and hopefully after this week I can get back to relaxing with the baby, pug, and my knitting. Besides, I've got a REALLY COOL knitting project planned, finally using some of this silk that I bought at Stitches East 2004. Details to come next post.
Edited to add that I managed to further procrastinate on the report by redoing the blog style for its 2nd birthday present. What do you think?
And now I am procrastinating even more by blogging about changing the blog's style. Sigh. Soon I'll be faced with the ugly reality that this thing isn't going to finish itself no matter how hard I pretend it might. (closing eyes real tight and wishing upon a star now!)
