I should have more to say. Why don’t I?
I’ve been absent from the blog for a while and it’s not because I had no time to blog (although I was out of town for several days last week), but it’s because I simply could not think of anything to blog about.
I’m blaming the 4th Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week.
Not that there’s anything at all wrong with the event. I’m sure thousands of blog writers will diligently post every day and will even follow the daily topics and we will all be that much richer for having read all that good stuff. This is actually a fabulous idea. But it doesn’t work in my world.
It’s the rebel in me, you see.
There’s just something about the imperative and structure of things like this that sends me running. “You need to blog every day for the week and here are some suggested topics you should follow, so happy day and good luck.” Whoa, wait just a second. Too. Much. Pressure.
Last week, I saw one of the blogs I follow post something about KCBW coming up and I just froze. I knew in that moment, it would be a while before I could post anything. And as you see, even now when I am writing because I need to, the only thing I can talk about is why I haven’t been able to talk about anything lately.
Yep, I’m a mess.
|Fight the Power!
Writing blog posts isn’t the only area where I struggle with my rebellion. Last week, I decided to apply for a part-time job as a receptionist at my veterinarian’s office. After all, with our collection of dogs, I spend a lot of time there already and I really need the extra money for my yarn
addiction hobby. I took my
resume* up there and of course, they handed me a job application. I understand the reason they need these
annoying slips of paper filled out in theory, but when it came to the work
experience section, I simply could not bring myself to rewrite all the crap on
my resume. What a colossal waste of
time. My inner rebel dug her heels in
and I found myself writing “See resume” and hoping for the best. They haven’t called. Hmmm…
On the knitting front, I haven’t had as much time as I’d have liked to work on stuff and the things I have finished, I don’t have any good pictures of yet. I finished the gift for my friend and delivered it last week and I only have the pics I snapped before I gave it to her (should have taken some with her wearing it - darn!). This is the best one which isn't great:
I completed one baby blanket for the little boy twin my sweet friends are expecting and I’m working on his twin sister’s blanket and hope to have that completed today. Pics will follow at a later date. And the socks I’m working on? On the back burner, although not as far back as the lace shawl that I’m still ignoring. Oh, and I blocked a scarf that had been sitting around for a good three months.
That’s all, folks…
*I can’t get the little accent mark to appear on the word “resume”. So, I’m not trying to “ree-zoom” anything but I’m talking about my “rez-uh-may”. Um…yeah.
