I've been distant from my blog (and honestly quite a bit of everything else, too) since my miscarriage in November. While most days I am doing much better than I was the month before, or the day before, it still weighs heavily on my heart and my shoulders. As a result, I've been a bit detached from a lot of my friends, normal activities, and social networking. It is hard to pretend everything is OK when everyone else who grieved with me has moved on- as they should- but I find myself unable to. When I sign on my blog to write, this is the first thing that comes to my mind. I imagine this is going on weigh on my heart for some time.
So, what else has been going on around here? Well, let me tell you!
I just started back up with school for Winter Quarter. I am taking two accounting related courses, which has me a little stressed out. They're both online because Spencer's schedule will be changing a lot shortly, and that makes me wary. I found out after I registered that you are required to use a Windows version of Quickbooks for one, and I have a Mac. There are going to be a lot of days at the Computer Lab at school or at my parent's house to get that all done because I don't want to 1) Buy a new laptop or 2) Drop the class. I know there are ways to run Windows on a Mac, but my MacBook is ancient so I don't want to try.
I finally learned how to knit! I've only actually completed one project, and otherwise I have just been practicing. I am working on a faux-Noro striped scarf right now, and I am loving the way it is turning out! I also crocheted my dad and husband hats (it took me forever to find a beanie pattern that I was willing to use for a guy). I was thinking about crocheting a bunch of projects for friends who are pregnant, but I'm having a hard time with the newborn stuff lately, so I will probably won't for now.
Otherwise, things are pretty much status quo around here. We had a great Christmas and are planning Adalyn's upcoming 2nd Birthday! It is going to be amazing! I hope you are all doing well and I am going to try to get back into the swing of things.
