I flipped through the list of blogs I followed to see what's going on there. A lot of these blogs are also on an indefinite hiatus. Many blogs I didn't even remember anything about. Some are just completely wiped off the face of the Internet. A few are going strong. I admire those few.
It looks like I last left off with a Quidditch post. Good old Quidditch. I actually went to the World Cup again in 2015. It was held in the same city I work in, so that was cool. I even coerced a coworker into attending both days and I think he liked it against his will. What's even better is that next year the World Cup is coming even closer to me. Go figure.
It's just been a crazy time. Most times are, though, aren't they?
I'm currently recovering from an upper respiratory infection. I haven't left the house in six days. My ears hurt, my throat hurts, I sound disgusting. On the bright side, I'm super hydrated because all I do is sit around and drink water and herbal teas. I've lost weight because I have no appetite (kinda an iffy bright side, but whatever).
Seriously, I felt so bad that I didn't even crochet for most of these six days. I don't remember talking about it much before but I'm really into crocheting and spend nearly every night working on a project or two. November is a pretty busy crochet month because I can pretty much make everyone on my Christmas list something out of yarn and not have to go into any other store but a craft store.
But I plateaued yesterday and today I'm on the upswing. Should be finishing up a commissioned baby blanket sometime this week.
Before being sick for a week, many other things have happened to keep me busy.
Last April I think, husband got a new job and moved in with his parents to be just fifteen minutes away from it. Then in May my mom needed a major surgery so I moved in with her to help out. The lease in our stupid apartment was up at the end of June so we had plenty of time to pack our apartment up and get it all stored away. My room at my mom's house decided to get moldy and my body wasn't feeling that, so now we're both in my husband's room at his parents' house.
I've still got my awesome IT job but I do more telecommuting now. It's been such a blessing. Our stress levels are much lower now, I think. We are much closer to our families and can help out when everyone's various medical conditions flare up. I don't think either of us imagined we'd be needed like this so early on but we're on board and holding steady. I know for me it's just a relief to know that if my mom ever needs me, I'm much closer and able.
I've probably been living a blogger's dream life when it comes to having life stories to blog about but I'm just not that into telling everyone my life like that. I'm a terrible blogger, what can I say?
|new glasses, ooh la la|
I'm making no promises about writing regularly again or getting super bloggy with the exchanges and linkups and such, but I'm still around!
