I'm Back

I hope you think that's a good thing.

In any case, my where-abouts, or lack there-of, had nothing to do with the "Knitting Without Obligation" button I put in my sidebar. It did, however, come in handy in my absence. I'm glad that any speculation on your part was directed to the possibility of my simply not wanting to blog, as opposed to "did she die?" or "did she fall into a never-ending pit of yarn and fibre and can't get out?" though the latter does have a really nice ring to it.

My absence was entirely 'work' related.

As in, I'm making some good freaking money, with the added bonus of being able to stay home and do it.

All in the name of being able to afford one of these...

Majacraft Suzie Pro - Ordered in September and I'm still waiting for it to arrive. A good thing considering I needed to work at the time and it would have totally put me over the edge.

Unfortunately, as those of you who do work at home can attest to, this requires a lot of discipline...and if you work at home with a family? Well, you can imagine the days. The child still needs to be taken to school, the dog still needs to be walked, the laundry, the dishes, the cooking, the...well, you understand. It makes me hyperventilate everytime I think about it. This left little time for me and knitting or spinning, let alone blogging. Okay, that's not an honest statement. I had 'NO' time for knitting or spinning, let alone blogging. I haven't sat at my wheel for weeks and knitting suffered the same unimaginable reality.

In the end, it was all worth it. I was able to attain something I wanted. Okay, it was more a craved, yearned, hungered, pined for object of my desire [although, if you talk to my husband, he'll just say that I was whiney] and put away a nice nest egg for the family.

So, I'm back.

Stayed tuned for how Michelle gets her groove back.
