April 11, 2011

Holy cow.  I really let this journal go.  There are reasons.  I spend a lot of time on Facebook and Ravelry.  Facebook is the place to stay in touch with family and friends, post pictures of activities...and family and friends.  Ravelry is the place for organizing projects, knitting and spinning, and spending quality time (aka "major timesuck") with my knitting friends.  Considering I've never been much of a writer and this journal isn't exactly compelling reading, FB and Ravelry have taken its place.  But I hate to give up entirely.  This has actually been helpful on occasion.  If I couldn't remember when I took a certain vacation or when an event occurred, I could find it here.  So, in short, I sort of miss it. 

What have I been up to?  Well, I'm not working now and I have mixed feelings about that.  My last job ended in June, 2010.  I worked at Brennan High School, a BOCES alternative high school, from February until June last year.  It was a very, very difficult job.  I was working with a deaf student in the psychiatric program.  When I found out she wouldn't be returning this year, I was both disappointed to be again losing a job and relieved that I wouldn't have to continue.  So, that's the story there. 

Lorelai is five now, which still astounds me.  She's bright, loving, dramatic, sweet and absolutely hysterical.  I went to her preschool "dance finale" today and just had the best time.  Videos of the three numbers can be found here.

I participated in a spinning workshop this past weekend.  It was a wonderful experience, though I feel guilty because I was taking the place of a friend who couldn't go.  I learned so much, I'm still trying to process it all and I will try to show her as much as I can.  It was amazingly comprehensive.  One of the most important things I learned is that I'm in LOVE with combing wool! 

We had such a crappy winter!  Spring is here, in name only, it seemed for quite awhile, but today, there was a hint of nicer weather.  Although it was cloudy most of the day, the sun broke through late in the afternoon and it was warm enough to take off the coat.  Easter will be here soon and I hope the weather will cooperate.

 So, as Pooh would say, ta-ta for now and we shall see what develops!
