Perhaps if I just act natural, no one will notice that I haven't posted for over a month.....

No blogging, but look! Cute!
He's so cute when he's plotting evil from his grocery bag fortress.

Well hello there y'all! I've been absent again, and hermity and withdrawn and unexpectedly hosting a visiting brother in law for two weeks, and losing the amethyst out of my engagement ring and having the car break down and all sorts of exciting things. Also, the depression has been devoutly hoping that nobody notices I've been gone, which is Wrong. Hah. Suck on that, depression monster!! And as I am typing well after midnight during a bout of insomnia apparently brought on by taking a sleeping tablet (!) I appear to feel it quite reasonable to be trash talking my depression. Yay me.

I have managed to talk my work into dropping me back to four days a week, which slices off twenty percent of my income, but also twenty percent of my work stress! I now have every Wednesday off, which means the work stress only ever has two days at a time to try and build up to overwhelm me. It turns out that fighting work stress by drinking large amounts of cinnamon latte and making smart arse remarks in meetings is potentially not the best strategy. However, more time off is more knitting time, and more having pizza for breakfast time (oops) and more sitting-for-butt-numbing-hours-watching-CSI time.

I have Finished. An. Object. It's stripy. It's blankie-shaped. All it needs now is blocking so that I can take wonky photos of it to post for your delectation.

I am looking forward to catching up with y'all!
