Well, it’s been 10 days since I posted my last blog. You would think that I have something new to contribute at this point, but I am sadly lacking.
And yet it’s a completely valid question what I’ve been doing with my time? I’ve posted barely any knitting for the past couple of months, no spinning, and even the recipes have started to taper off. Surely I’m working on SOMETHING here… something that’s taking up my time and energy.
I am. I am working on a baby. My first baby. Rob’s first baby. Our first baby. It’s amazing how something that is smaller than a peanut (alright, so at this point baby might be the size of a Kiwi) can suck all the energy right out of a person. Creative energy and otherwise. Some days it’s exhausting to force myself off the couch just to go to bed. At 8:00.
I haven’t even picked up my knitting needles in months. How’s that for tired?
The good news is that I’m through the first trimester and I *SHOULD* be getting more of my old pep back. I’m starting to actually want to knit again, and am thinking about what I might like to make for little baby monster. A white waffle pattern baby blanket is topping my list at the moment, but there’s a pretty significant part of me that thinks Texas is too warm for that sort of thing. Maybe not, as baby monster is due in December, though.
In time the blog will be back to “normal,” full of projects for me to share and notes on how I created or changed them. But I think in the long run, the blog will have to find a new normal as I adjust to life with baby. Difficult or easy, I think that will be a pretty wonderful adjustment to make.
