I don't FEEL Thirty five!

Tomorrow is my birthday. I'll be 35. I don't feel 35, I just don't. I remember turning 25 and being so sad that my life was not going where I wanted it to go.

I can honestly say that it's so much more on track than ever before. I may be a late bloomer, but I seem to be catching up.

I'm getting my master's. I am married with a gorgeous 2 year old son. I'm so much happier than I was at 25.

Still, I don't think of my self as "mid thirties," I don't even consider it most of the time.

Isn't that the key anyway? *wink wink*

a bonus of the boy on HIS birthday (someday I'll post the pics of me with this SAME expression)

It makes you think.....

I was reading Knit and Tonic today Wendy was talking (venting) about KIAKs. You know, those knitters who know it all and show off at any moment. I can say I've not had to deal with them often.

But regular KIA's, yep....been there, done that.

I was reading the comments to the blog today and found Mary-Kay. I think I'd like her if I ever met her. I've been there, done that. I've gone along and then felt guilty later. I've been the target. It's something I have learned from, but those lessons are not free.

Why do people think they have any right to be better/bigger/more than others? Why can't we just BE who we ARE and be happy with that? Is it too much to ask?

Bad knitter, bad bad knitter....

Until tonight, I hadn't even picked up my knitting since *gasp, choke* LAST MONDAY!

What can I say, it's been a rough few weeks. I'm adjusting to school and grad classes......

It was nice to go tonight and finally get a start on the front of Sizzle though. I hope to finish it before it's too cold to wear it.

More later.....I'm going to go KNIT!
