more on the weekend warrior

i’ve finished the front and the back of my weekend warrior! unfortunately, the photos i took don’t make me very happy, so you can’t see it tonight. last night i started the sleeves too. i realize that they’re just sleeves and not complex at all, but can i just say that i HATE counting rows? man, what a paiin in the butt. i made it through the first of the increase patterns – 8 rows – and have about 5 left to do. i’m making the sleeves at the same time, from 2 different skeins. this seems like a good way to make sure both sleeves are the same length.

i spent the night reading my personal diary from the past 14 months or so. imagine that i could have fit all that stuff into such a short time! imagine that i could learn so much in such strange ways. imagine that i’m more ME than i was 2 years ago. imagine….

imagine missing my bumps and my granny. i can do that. i don’t have to imagine it.
imagine learning how to live with a dog. i can do that. i don’t have to imagine it.
imagine learning to love a home that used to be a house. i can do that. i don’t have to imagine it.
imagine making new friends, saying goodbye to old ones, saying no more to former ones. i can do that. i don’t have to imagine it.
imagine that there is beauty and joy in our souls, that we live and laugh and learn and love through this whole crazy thing called life. i can do that. i don’t have to imagine it.
imagine all sorts of things that a person can pack into a life… that’s where i’ve been.
what can you imagine?

g’night. i’m off to bed.
