Gosh, it's like we're twins separated at birth! I'm also working on an every-other-day schedule for posting, and trying to do stuff and all. I'm also working on getting it all together and running in the am. Yup, that early, too! Want to form a mutual-support society?

I feel like I'm in the same boat as you. Can I join the mutual-support society? I'm teaching all new classes this year and have grading backed up from a week ago. I haven't really knit since school started, either. My knitting group was doing a block a month from the perpetual calendarto make an afghan for charity. I had to tell them to go on without me. I didn't have the time to do that. Plus, I'm sorta selfish. I would rather knit for myself if I'm going to knit at all. I've also been on the exercise kick. I've recently, mostly over the summer, lost 45 pounds, which I mostly credit to starting an exercise program for the first time in my 38 years. I've been trying to keep that up, but it's hard to find the time. I already get up at 4:30 and the kids' homework, activities, etc. take up the evening. Okay, am I whining? Just know that you're definitely not alone.


Sorry your school year is a butt-kicker. My knitting has been taking one for the team lately too and it really sucks.


No need to apologize to us!! Just hang in there - sounds like a brutal year. I hope that changes soon.Projects we haven't seen? Oh boy! :)


Wow, sounds intense. I like Dory's attitude... 'just keep swimming, just keep swimming', just keep knitting, knitting, knitting....-punkin


Hey! Don't be so hard on yourself! You've got a lot going on in your life and knitting is knitting, whether it's beginning or finishing (if you know what I mean). Plus, your blog isn't boring. On September 25, 2007 I made you a medal for the most inspirational blog (knitknitknittyknit). I looked at a lot of blogs that day, so it's not like you didn't have some serious competition.

Hugs to yuo, Jen! And I can empathize - the T.H.E.C.B. (ooh scary) is coming this week to interview all the faculty and observe us teach. Well, ok?! Also, my work is playing havoc with gym time, and I am certainly not getting up at the buttcrack of dawn like you are, so pat yourself on the back, bigtime!Three more weeks of shows then I get to see you all at knit nite again! Yay!Hang in there,Emily


Hey, don't sweat it! I think we all go through periods where knitting takes a back seat to, well, life. I hope things get less stressful soon.


Yes, the blogs are about knitting, but they are also about community and the "we're all in this together" spirit...sure I love to see what you've been working on, but I also like to just hear about you, even if you're going through a tough time. It sounds like a lot of people are having difficult school years, so you're not alone there for sure. Let us help encourage you. :)


4:45am???!!! No wonder you are tired! That's not even 8 hours of sleep. I would be a zombie. don't be so hard on yourself. Occasionally, knitting takesa back seat to life. That's the way it goes. The wheel will turn and all that stuff.....
