What a Way to Start 2013

I know I'm a little behind, but things just keep piling up. :P

So, we had a water leak in our apartment.  Super exciting.  It started after Christmas and before the new year.  Lots of water, lots of moving things, a very loud de-humidifier making it annoying as all get out.

The apartment people were really nice about everything.  They thought they got the leak.

Yeah, last week we had water again.  Luckily, the leak is fixed for reals.  But we have many holes in our walls, the de-humidifer again, and nasty carpet.  The walls will be patched on Monday.  The carpet will be this week.

My boyfriend has been out of town visiting his mom, so he's missed most of the chaos.

As it turns out, my dad also got shingles on his face.  It's only on the right side, from below the eye up.  It looks awful and is very painful for him.  Not fun at all...

At least I've had my knitting.

And my family.

Friends have been AWOL except for a few.  I'm getting used to this.  It's more of getting a call or email when they want something.  Which is fine.  I'm not making calls or texts or emails anymore unless someone else initiates it.  I have too much stuff to do to deal with trying to pin down people.  It is what it is, you know?

(I sound like a bitter old lady.  Ugh.  I don't mean it like that.  I mean I understand that people move on.  I get it.  I'm moving on too.  It's the natural progression.  I'm not mad about it or hurt or sad even.  I understand. )

The few I have (I'm looking at you, Amy!) are awesome.  And really, I think I'm okay with this.  I don't like going out that much to be honest.  People are loud, places are loud, and there's so much gross energy out there right now.  (I had a migraine for over two weeks due to this.)  I am content. :)

So, now I'm trying to get things going with my knitting.  And I have a new blog, which you should check out here.  It's about my knitting escapades with lots of pictures.  (I finally figured out how to upload!)

Alright, that sums it up.  Migraine from hell is back, so I'm off the pc for a bit.
