Resurfacing.

So, I kind of disappeared, huh? Well, I'm getting my feet under me again, and I may just become less of a sorry excuse for a blogger here any day now. My life is really, really fucking great right now, but I am pushing myself to the limit and will be for another couple weeks at least. But I'm here because I missed y'all, a lot. (And thank you thank you thank you to everybody that emailed me making sure I was ok. It meant more to me than I would have imagined to get unsolicited just-checkingin emails from people I've never "met". I truly love our little corner of the internet.)

So yes, I'm back, and here's a smattering of what I've been up to:

1. I got into nursing school, and gave my notice at work. I could NOT be happier with this turn of events.



2. I joined the cowl craze. Details here.




3. I ate some tasty foods.


4. I blocked a sweater. (!!!) FO post to follow, very very soon.



Aaaah -- it's nice to be back.

oooohhh...I love quitting jobs. I haven't done it in 6 years though, so I've almost forgotten how good it can feel to start a new stage of life....I'm jealous. Pout, pout.

Glad to hear from you again. Congratulations being accepted to nursing school. I have so much admiration for nurses, as it's a job I could never do in a million years. But so rewarding!
