Well, you know.
Do they ever work?
But still. 2013 rapidly approaches.
I’ve no mind to change so much. But there are a couple of things.
First of all, fiber diet. Serious this time. Because oh my goodnessgosh, I have been stuck in a stashup mode for too long. 80-plus pounds of wool is…just…too much.
I’m not quitting Club, Club and Club. Because, well, I don’t want to. But I am thinking about cutting back to a single dose for a while. Right now, I get 8 ounces from Spunky Club and 8 ounces from SCF. And one batt dose from Enchanted Knoll, which I signed up for to take the place of SCF Batt Club. I might have to bump my double doses down to single 4-ounce doses for a while. At least until I get this thing under control.
And then, well…sometimes there’s Spinalongs that are fun to participate in. And so, I’m giving myself an allowance of one 4-ounce braid per month.
Sounds reasonable, right? I mean, if I have an allowance, then I won’t freak out and try to buy All the Woolz.
And then there’s yarn. Yeah. I don’t really need more of that. Not right now, anyway. So I gotta try to keep myself in line. Especially when visiting the LYS. Maybe I shouldn’t even go there at all. But you know, sometimes you need needles and such.
I know things will happen. I know I’ll fall down. (Probably a lot.) But I’m gonna try. Really really try to get it under control.
Oh, and yes…the ever-growing pile of WIPs. I’m up to 32 projects in progress. That’s…ridiculous. So for the next little-while, I’m gonna work on frogging or finishing.
And there’s more. Ever since I threw out my back last spring, I’ve not been able to run. And so, well, I’ve gotten a little soft. No hard and fast plans yet, but I’m thinking about it. Because if I could just work on it a bit, I’m pretty sure my lingering nerve issues (no, there are not bugs crawling up my leg right now) would lighten up. Some yoga. Some strength-training. More serious working out. (I’ve been walking religiously, but it’s not quite enough to make up for my love of beer.) And less eating out. Much less.
How ’bout you? Got any resolutions?
Happy New Year, Friends!
