I know, I know. Where have I been, right? Well, I've been busy. Not socially, mind you, but with other stuff. I've been reading and preparing to host book club. I spent some days sitting by the ocean, celebrating with my closest friends and a baby. (And a toddler. Not fair to leave out the adorable toddler, but I'd met her before. Hadn't met the new baby yet.) But mostly, I've been knitting. I started out so well, long before December. But now here we are, less than two weeks from Christmas, and I'm not done. I feel like I'm not even close to done. I know it will all get finished, and it's not even the end of the world if it doesn't get finished by the 25th as I will see these people again and there is this fascinating thing known as mail. But, still, I feel like I'm back in law school in that awful last week of the semester.

Then there's the fact that I'm just so sick of it all. I'm sick of this endless race for the Republican nomination. They're all awful. And now the guy who is leading is the scariest of the lot because of his delusions of grandeur and visions of doomsday scenarios. I'm sick of things like today's news that Lowe's has pulled its advertising from a show meant to show that it is possible to be a patriotic, "real" American and a Muslim at the same time. I'm sick of the nonsense that passes for politics and governance in my state. (Really, someone in my governor's office cares that a teenager tweeted that he sucks?)

I could go on, but I really must get back to my knitting.

I've been wondering where who've been. :) Hope you're having a good holiday season!
