I'm a knitter, spinner, writer, poet, teacher, and mother. But all of that is changing quickly. This blog is about life with chronic pain from rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. It's about leaving work and going on disability. It's about possibly becoming an empty nester. But mostly it's about knitting. I will design patterns in response to life and all of the unexpected changes that it brings.

Down and Out
It's hard to accomplish much while sleeping at least 14 hours a day.
The laundry and dishes are caught up, but I feel like I've barely even been here.
I think the stress of the upcoming insurance change, my disability hearing, and my husband's layoff is getting to me.
Most times it doesn't seem too bad because my conscious mind can't hold a thought for more than a few minutes, but underneath I know it is all coming and it's making me tired.
So I haven't read anything interesting. I haven't done anything interesting. I haven't thought about what to write.
I'm really only logging in here this week to report myself among the living. I'll work hard to do better next week. RD Blog Week is coming up and I want to participate fully, but will need to find some of the energy I've lost.
THE PODCAST didn't happen. It is half written about two poems I quite like, I just have to find the strength to finish and record. Ideally I will finish and record two episodes this week, so I can have a spare available for future crashes
THE KNITTING I did finish knitting my "Christmas Cards" for this year. I should have plenty of sheep for friends and family and I've started stars for next year.
I've also started what may end up as a baby blanket. I don't currently know any babies, or any expecting mothers, but it's what the yarn is saying it wants to be. It will end up in my shop until it finds a home.
