It is not perfect, but still awesome!!

I dyed some wool with Kool Aid last night and it was SO fun. I used pink lemonade, black cherry and grape and it looked SO dark while I was actually putting the dye on, but when I steamed the wool to set the dye it lightened up and turned out so pretty. As of this morning it was still not completely dry so I can’t wait to check it when I get home. I know I’m going to immediately want to start knitting something with it. I’m also definitely going out today to get more Kool Aid since I still have two skeins of wool left!!

Lots of Time to Think

Well, it's been a while since I've written anything on here ... mainly due to Hurricane Wilma. I finally got power November 6th. Two weeks without electric made me realize that I can be pretty happy with very little. I did have a generator which provided light and allowed me to hook up my TV and DVD player and finish watching the 4th season Six Feet Under DVD's. The main thing the generator did was allow me to make coffee in the morning ... most important of all. Anyway, while I had no power I wasn't seeing my boyfriend because the hurricane pretty much did us in. The first few nights after the hurricane he came over to my house in a bad mood. He was mad about everything and I just couldn't deal with it. So, while he wasn't here I knitted, read, or did crossword puzzles either with one light on, or by candlelight and I was fine ... and I felt content. More content than if he had been here and had been a pain in my ass.

I did finish a pretty drop stitch scarf and my Stitch Diva poncho. And I got a lot done on all my other knitting projects. I'm trying to finish up the things I already have on the needles and not start any more projects until those are pretty much done. I did start a scarf to give my mom for Christmas though. And I'd like to make something for my sister, but we'll see how it goes.

Anyway, I went to my first therapy appt. last night at 7pm. Robbie went at 3pm. The therapist's recommendation is for us to take a week off from talking or seeing each other so we can both think. I think this is a great thing even though tonight, for the first time, I felt a little lonely. I think one night this week I have to go out with a friend and do something. I have spent so much time in the house since the hurricane. I would like to go to Stitch N' Bitch this Saturday morning and finally make it to the one on Monday night that I've been talking about going to for months. I'm also going to yoga tomorrow night.

I'm trying to really think about if I want to stay with Robbie or not. That's pretty much going to be determined in therapy where I can safely speak my mind without worrying that he's going to get so mad. I guess our appt. together next Wednesday night will shed some light on where this relationship is or isn't going. I sure hope so anyway ...
