I would assume with the many followers out there, people may have noticed the plunge in blog posts. I know this was very disappointing...but I'm back! Perhaps 30 straight days was a bit radical but I believe that the real problem here is my hobby commitment.
Over the years I have felt the need to devote my life to something. That something could be anything. The most obvious first hobby that comes to mind is bicycling. After college, I decided what better way to spend a free afternoon, but on a bike - perfect in solitude and with friends! I grabbed my bike expert Ryan and headed to Target. At least I was smart enough to not buy anything too expensive! I went on a few rides with friends, but alone was lame. Then, late one night, I was wooed into an "easy" little bike ride in Aurora. It was called the Night Ride and it was a NightMARE. Everyone says it's SO fun and easy but it was literally the worst 4-1/2 hours of my life...yes, it took me that long to ride 25mi on a bike in the middle of the night...through a rape zone. Fermilab after hours was a scary place. F Bike Riding as a hobby!
Shortly after that, I purchased a teach yourself to knit book and starter set. I was a natural! I got through a few inches of my first scarf. Then everybody started going to the bar, so I put that down. Several years later I was convinced to take a class. This was last winter. I was such a superstar! Attending Knitting 101 every week...I bragged to coworkers...I made a yarn washcloth. Life was great! After graduating, Sadie really tried to get me to sign up for a Socks class...but it just seemed silly to spend like $100 on yarn to make A pair of socks. This hobby sucked...plus, who wants to knit when the weather starts to warm up?
After that, I got engaged then married and just made Brian my hobby. He is a lot of work! After all, you all saw that last post with Sears (FYI, to follow-up, Sears has sent Brian an email apologizing for the bike being out of stock and has offered him a $15 gift card).
So, never fear my blogging fans! This post is my first step towards re-committing. I mean, in retrospect, it doesn't hurt my ass, doesn't make me too hot and doesn't give me a headache!
