Hazy week~

I can hardly believe tomorrow is Friday. meh-
The week sucked by. haha- Sucked by? Sounds nasty but seems appropriate.

We seem to be in a constant state of adjustment with Paul's work schedule, wonder if we will ever adapt? Seems like we get used to him either being gone or here when it is time for one or the other. Planning anything is an impossibility. Odd since we have spent the majority of the past 14 years together more than not. I usually just feel sad when he is gone.
All of the changes the past year + have brought have been worth it though. Life seems more peaceful and 'right', in spite of leaving family and friends 3,000 miles away. I feel like I am supposed to be here, struggles and all.

Enough profundity. This week I knit knit knit. Finished up prototypes for new designs and knitting for knitting sake.
Today I put the LR back together - well mostly. I still have to decide on a few things and wait until the dude is back to move some more heavy furniture. I will take pics to show you once everything is up and sparkly clean.

The 'playroom' downstairs (for lack of a better name for it-'junk hole' may be more appropriate?) has been the thorn in my side this week. So much crapola came with us on our move, and most of it has not been touched since we moved (which was one year ago yesterday!!). Time to purge it. pfft. Of course each thing is precious to the girls so there are 3 levels of deciding what goes. Like quicksand sometimes. unhhhhhh
I come from a looong line of hoarders. hoarders. OCD hoarders.
It's a struggle to part with some things. I like to give things to everyone when I purge, but decided this time there are 3 options. 1- trash 2- Goodwill or 3- Scrap. Books are going to the library for their collection or book sale. Hard to not go to the other extreme and get rid of everything. But it feels good to clean out. Next hurdle shall be the studio. bah! I lurv my fiber and doodads.

Sorry no pic today- just conversation.
I am off to stare at the boob tube --tired and waiting for Paul's plane to land before I zzzzzzzz.
