The knitting has suffered...

My poor lonely skeins have been put away for the past week as I pursued other endeavors this week. As much as it pains me to put down the needles, I having been reading and writing quite a bit recently. I rediscovered my passion for writing and have decided that I need to pursue that a bit further . So I'm enrolling in some writing classes and we'll see what happens. I need to pick up the needles as well -but as I look around me I realize that the only things that I've accomplished this past week are:
1.) Finishing 'New Moon' by Stephenie Meyer. OMG, I couldn't put it down. I'm such the Twerd now (Twilight nerd). It's fun, fluff - but it really sucks you in (no pun intended).
2.) Writing some short stories. I haven't done this since college and I haven't gotten the bug to write again until recently. I took a writing seminar in college and a creative writing lab and enjoyed it so much. And, to everyone's surprise (no doubt), I was actually a pretty decent writer. So I decided to pick it up again. Boy oh boy am I rusty! I need to take some more classes and focus on story development and dialogue.
3.) Trying to spend time doing crafty things with the kidlets.. gotta hook 'em while they're young!
4.) Blogging and engaging in social networks (TwitterMoms, Twitter, Facebook)
5.) Catching up on the oodles of TiVo'd shows I haven't had time to watch.

My apartment is a mess. There is laundry out the wazoo. And I have been cheating on WW! ARGH! The knitting will have to wait until my domestic duties have been completed...

Take heart, Noro Silk Garden, we'll meet again soon...
