I've been without internet service for two days, and I'm almost comatose with joy to be back online. Not having the internet has been like leaving the house without my purse. Something's just not right. Something is very wrong. The experience reminded me a little of the time I left all my lecture notes, corrected work, lesson plans, and lunch at home. All I brought to work with me was my purse and car keys. I didn't even have my classroom keys. There are three things to be feared if one teaches high school: 1) having an unzipped fly or toilet paper hanging out of your skirt (fly has happened to me), 2) having a horribly bad hair day and bad breath (suffered that as well), 3) being unprepared in front of 30 sixteen year olds. It was horrible. This weekend has been a little like that. I got service back a couple of hours ago and have been wading through a ginormous amount of email, and blog reading. It seems like everyone posted over the weekend. Now that I'm feeling somewhat caught up. I'm feeling a little more like myself. I even celebrated by eating a Little Debbie Marshmellow sandwich that I keep hidden in my pantry. Sad, I know. I thought I'd give you some WIP shots. After I wrap up the boy sweater I think I'm going to start Cold Shoulder. The yarn is calling me. I can hear it in my closet saying, "Take me out and knit me!"
