M went to prison. I went back to school, fell in love with an old flame from many years ago, but he lived halfway across the country. I visited him several times, moved to VA, and now we are quite happily married. Life is good.
As ever, finding a job is hard. I've been neglecting my crafting (I've added some basic sewing to my repertoire, but my machine has tension issues) for quite some time, but have taken tentative steps toward getting back to it. I'm working on an afghan, and have the yarn for a shawl. Most of my yarn and needles and accoutrements are in storage in Texas, and I don't want to build up that much of a stash here when I have so much already there.
Anyway, just wanted to update. It's a simple coincidence that it's been exactly 5 years since my last post. Life is strange that way. Maybe I'll keep posting for a while. I do like having an outlet for my thoughts.
