I don't know why I'm feeling down right now. I have been since about mid-afternoon. Was having a really good day, and feeling really good. All of a sudden, it just hit me though. Not sure if I unconsciously thought of something that didn't agree with my happiness? Did I see something and not realize it bothered me? I truly have no idea ...
I've been trying for the last couple of hours to "get back up," but I'm struggling! Lord, please feel me with your PEACE!!
I'm hoping that by blogging (as I said I would today!) that it may be just the jump start I need.
I went out to my dad's today with my kids to see my grandson and give him his Christmas presents. While I was out there, my brother was out in the shed, so we stopped in there to look for just a quick few minutes. I found a couple more books that I wanted to have here at the house, and a couple of other things. Among these was a little bag of fiber that I happened to find in a box. I have NO idea where I got it from, and don't even remember getting it! It's cashmere though! I brought it home with me. Some day when I get back to practicing spindling, and get a little better at it, I will use this (probably with some wool) and see what I can come up with. :)
I joined a swap on Ravelry: The Loopy Ewe Swap 12. I'm very excited about this. I've been in contact with both the person who will be sending to me and the person I will be spoiling. It is so nice to have people to talk to, to get to know. I have some ideas about what I will be making/sending for my spoilee, but nothing definite yet. I am super glad I joined though! It's different than other swaps and things I've been involved with because we know who we are sending to and receiving from. This gives us the chance to actually get to know the other people, and I'm so thankful for that!
Also, this past week I enrolled at DeVry University. I have been attempting to get my Associate's for WAY too long, and need to finally get it done. I have wasted a lot of my Pell Grant over the years, not being sure what I truly wanted to do. This will affect my upcoming class enrollment. However, I should have enough for a couple of more semesters. PLUS, I was awarded a transfer scholarship that will help immensely. Costs are higher at the university level than at the community college; and without this scholarship I wouldn't be able to continue with school right now.
My plans are to get my associate's in web design, then to continue on to get a bachelor's degree in a multimedia area. Wish me luck!
Well, I didn't get to talking about my One Word for 2014 (PEACE), but I will get to that soon. I'm going to go try and knit again, hoping I can get my happy back!
