Hello, SparkFriends -
I'm not much of a blogger, admittedly, but I wanted to provide a short update.
Work has been stressful and I've not dealt with it as constructively as I could. That's changing for me and I feel as if I'm closer to "on track," whatever that is. My eating has been fine, but my time and energy for working out has been waning.
Craft-wise I've been busy working on my first sweater. I'll share pictures when it looks more like a sweater and less like a blanket with a sleeve.
Most importantly, my husband and I have been managing our lives and emotions with our aging friend, Hawthorn. She turned 18 in November and the past few days have been rough. She's really not eating much and it may soon be time to part ways. As selfish as I'd like to be, I'm trying very hard to keep her needs in mind as a priority. All positive thoughts are welcome. If anyone here speaks "Old Crabby Cat" fluently, I'd be happy to call you and let her talk to her and see what she thinks.
We had a great weekend otherwise. Patrick and I went to a hockey game on Saturday night, which was much like a date for us. Yesterday we participated in a Sweetheart Bowling Tournament, finishing 14th out of 40 couples; not bad for first-timers!
That's the scoop, Sparklers. I'm making time for rowing and hope to add more exercise in my days, if only to help me better the stress. I hope that you are all doing well on your journeys and making time for yourself, too!
