I know I've been a little quiet lately on the blog and elsewhere. A few days ago my boyfriend (who I loved dearly) of seven years broke it off. I subsequently fell off the deep end, very much like that scene in Anchorman ("I'm in a glass case of emotion!"), but not quite as funny.
Fairly quickly I decided that instead of feeling sorry for myself and letting this ruin my hard earned graduation from college that I needed to take this as an opportunity for a new beginning. In the Fall I will be moving to a new state, new university, new job, new everything. What a chance I have here, I'm going to take full advantage of this!
I definitely needed a little boost to get me going, so I went to the place that heals all wounds, Webs! As always, the second I walked into my favorite local yarn store I felt immediately better.
As though Webs knew I was going through a hard time, Ultra Alpaca was on super sale and so I helped myself to enough for a sweater.
Then I made a beeline straight to the Madelinetosh shelf. I've always coveted this amazing yarn, but have never been able to justify the cost of more than one skein that one time (in a moment of weakness). But, if this isn't an emergency, I don't know what is, and so I went for it and don't regret it one bit!
Things are difficult right now, but I'm going to stay positive and make the best of this situation.
On to bigger and better things!
