Good News, Bad News: Birthday Edition

Good News: It's my birthday! I have officially been on the planet for a quarter of a century!

Bad News: Thinking morbid thoughts about how much of that quarter century I frittered away on nonsense. Which I know is ridiculous. I'm only 25! It could be years before Iris has me put into the home from Hard Copy.

Good News: I've been back on Weight Watchers in a serious way for the last week or so, after a much-too-long hiatus. Eating good, exercising, and all that. Feeling good!

Bad News: In my efforts to be committed, I took a walk on Tuesday in the snow. The snow was fine, but there was some sneaky ice underneath the snow, resulting in two falls and a banged up knee. (Also injured- pride.) This has made it hard to… well, do pretty much anything that isn't sitting on my tail end and knitting. Now that I think of it, that's not really so terrible. So maybe I should move this to the good news section?

Good News: I finished the first issue of Handknit Heroes (like, a week ago) and I really liked it!

Bad News: Still no review. But I swear, it is coming! Tomorrow? Saturday? Soon!

Good News: Tomorrow night my mom is watching Iris for a number of hours so that I can go out for dinner and a movie (Coraline!) with husband and friends.

Bad News: Well, there really isn't any bad news on this one. I'm just overflowing with excitement!

Oh, and my final bit of good news- my husband's present to me this year was a very generous gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe. And there just so happens to be a yarn that I've been dreaming of that costs exactly the amount of my certificate. Which color should I order? Don't go buying it all up before I decide now! Happy birthday to meeeeee!

    Those colors are gorgeous, it will be difficult to choose.
    I had a really hard time on my 25th birthday too.
