  No pun intended

...but I am such a sheep. I am starting the Ravelympics 2008 tomorrow with about a gajillion other knitters/crocheters/spinners/weavers on Ravelry. Since my regular readers know that I can barely maintain one or two dedicated WIPs at one time, I chose an easy project because I know that I am the Slowsky Diva of knitting. (For the record I am back up to 18 WIPs - bad case of startitis but you can bet your ass I'm frogging most of them)

You've seen this one before - it's the Four Hour Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts but I plan to use a whole ball of Madil Kid Seta :D Rowan Kidsilk Haze...

I'll be lucky to finish the actual pattern let along my plans for extending the rows until the whole ball is used up!
It's strange - between this and Mystery Stole 4 I am actually participating in organized knitting again. Who am I and what have I done with the real roxy? LOL

How would you categorize this?
I went to NJ last week to retrieve my father's belongings from a friend's house before they move out of state. In my 418 miles of travel over 1 1/2 days I stopped to see several old friends for a fly-by smooch and it made my heart ache. I mean, in a good way but also pushed my deep depression buttons. I think it's because it reminded me of how much I am missing out on in my life due to work, now school and all the drudgery over the last 3 years.

1) A friend got his masters in Business Admin while another friend moved into a bigger home and expanded his client base for his business.
2) Both had beautiful children in the last 2 years and
3) I listened to tales of fabulous vacations and toured these new homes with abundant gardens and pretty furnishings. Sat with stay-at-home-moms who had big, beautiful craft rooms, book clubs, fresh ground coffee and regular, established dinner plans that didn't include me. (they said they would if I still lived closer LOL but I don't so c'est la vie)
I know, I know... I know I sound jealous - I admit I am a teeny bit - but I don't begrudge my friends the rewards of hard work and fruits of labor. Not one bit. I am very proud of them and it warms my heart to see them so happy.
It's more that I am very tired and every now and then need to take a deep breath and refocus when I see what I have ahead of me when it comes to my education, future plans. They say the best revenge is living well, and I plan to do that someday as Dr. Roxy - but also sharing with my friends & family so they know how much I love & appreciate them.

After leaving NJ, I met up with Sharon and Jas in Philly to see Jas off on her Great California Adventure, and we ate garlic pizza as we marveled at how much stuff could actually fit into a small UHaul trailer.

Driving home down 95, I felt very small and alone (even though I love road trips) and attempted to call people since I had 2 1/2 hours to kill (but no one was answering their phones) until I met up with my husband for dinner, and delivered three loads of acrylic yarn from Jas to Pam's back porch for the Hats for Alex project and 3 bags of dried floral craft supplies (also from Jas) to Ruth at 10:45pm. She fed me a granola bar and a Cherry Coke Zero and gave me a kiss, sending me home to bed with a promise to call me later this week. I fell into bed snoring & drooling with Angel meowing at the foot of the bed because I had been gone for almost 2 days. Jas had slipped me a skein of her custom-dyed Hello Kitty yarn as a gift (I squee'd when I found it again the next morning) - I've been petting it for days now, trying to decide what I want to do with it. (It's not really called Hello Kitty - we just dubbed it that because it's pink & lavender LOL)

So that has been my week in a nutshell, minus the other minor blog posts. I'm excited because I may get to meet up with Sharon again in Baltimore next week when they release her new taxi. *fingers crossed*

How about you guys?

PS - Stringy and sobeknofret if you are reading this I had pm'd you regarding parcels that I have for you from Jas - holla back!!! 
Sometimes, when I'm doing laundry at the laundromat, I get jealous of those people with all those nice things. I mean how many other PhD wives have to do laundry at the laundromat? But then I remember that the average American is up to their eyeballs in credit card debt to pay for those vacations, and nice things. It helps a little.
You were in NJ and you didn't call me? *sniff sniff*

We were in the same state at the same time. Sigh.
