Well, where to start? How about at the beginning of this very long break from blogging?
Around about the time of the last entry, I had a terribly unpleasant experience with another blogger and I just decided that I needed to take some time off to get the bad taste out of my mouth. Because I don't wish to share to many of the gory details, let's just say I won't be signing up for any more knit-alongs any time soon.
Then I decided that I really needed to put some serious energy into finding a job. Low and behold, within two weeks of my last entry, I had been interviewed and hired for a teaching position on a reserve in northern Saskatchewan. The catch was that I needed to be packed and prepared to start teaching within ten days. No easy feat!
Since then, I have relocated 8 hours north of where I was and have spent this past week teaching high school English and Art. This in itself is rather remarkable considering I am a primary teacher with a special education background. It's been an interesting challenge to prepare for but also an exhilirating experience.
So here I am, spending every night at the school (which is where the internet is available) planning and marking and not really doing a lot of knitting. Although I did finish a few projects before all of this exploded into existence, I don't have a photo program at the moment to share them with you. I'll have to talk to the computer teacher about this and see if I can't get something arranged!
I do appreciate all the kind messages I've received. Sorry to worry you all. I promise I'll try to be more diligent about posting regularly and, hopefully, my knitting will start coming together
again very soon.
Happy to be back, M
