Remember the movie Groundhog Day, when Bill Murray is forced to relive the same day over and over? Well that’s been my life lately. Wake up, check email, walk the dog, come back and feed dog, make coffee, eat breakfast, read blogs a little while and get to work. Work either consists of many ads for an unnamed magazine or layouts for a newspaper supplement with some web design thrown in here and there. Forget to eat lunch. Don’t make it to the gym. Walk dog in early evening with a visit to Fed Ex thrown in a couple of times a week. Come home. Order in dinner because I’ve been too busy to cook – so much for resolutions. Collapse in front of TV, make attempts at knitting, decide I’m too tired, and basically veg till the dog’s bed time walk. Rinse and repeat. I’m sorry I’m boring y’all to death.

Speaking of groundhogs, Puxatawney Phil DID see his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of…what? We haven’t had winter yet. So 6 more weeks of unseasonably warm weather that will make sure I get little use of my brand new down coat? Don’t they call that SPRING?

OK – I’ll give you a small knitting update. Tubey has most of a sleeve and I’ll start on the second one tonight. My sock has little more to go before the toe shaping and they’re done. At least Tuesdays in the office give me some quality sock knitting time. The weekend looks promising for knitting if I could just FOCUS and stay off the computer.

“Focus” ? Eh? What’s that? :)

Hey Jackie – I had to laugh when I read about your daily rituals – dog walking, dog feeding, etc….Since I got Loki, that is what my life feels like! I barely have time to make myself meals! I am resorting to eating my own version of dog kibbles – bowls of Cheerios!
