So Excited

Lately I have been in a knitting slump. I haven't really gotten excited over anything knitting related. This is mostly due to the fact that I don't have any darn time to knit the multitudes of things that I want to knit ie. the lacey wrap from Vogue, Butterfly from Rowan 37, Apricot Jacket, Ab FAb throw.... I could go on and on and on! So anyways as I was saying, I've been in a slump. Then tonight I learned a new knitting stitch, and that got me all excited!! I'll be knitting up a swatch really soon and will use this stitch to make a rectangular shawl. When will I find the time? I'm not really sure, but I'll at least get a swatch made so that you can see this stitch. It is so cool!!

Rob's been gone for three weeks now in Arizona. I was doing ok for a while, but it is really started to get to me now. I don't know how my friends and family in the military handle their husbands being gone for 6 months to a year. I have 4 more weeks to go, and it seems like an eternity at this point. I'm usually ok during the day since I work quite a bit. It's the night time that I have a hard time with. Eating alone really sucks! Four weeks can't go by fast enough!! I'm like a little kid. Are we there yet?? Are we there yet!!!???
