Lizzy inspired me to go visit my childhood home. I lived there until I was seven. Isn't Google Maps amazing that you can actually go and visit places?
"Knitting is like life. You have a choice of the materials you use and you choose how to put them together. You can easily start again if it's not going the way you want.I can tell NaNo is almost here. I'm starting to turn away from my tech writer habits of conciseness and brevity and I'm getting wordy. I'm also not editing anything, so please forgive any typos and crappy grammar. NaNo begins on Tuesday and I've already met a nice person on the NaNo boards.
I guess that's one of the greatest things that I found to be true for me. My life became so much happier, I felt freer, and I felt wiser when I figured out that I couldn't blame my childhood for my grown-up issues. I realized that any old issues were in the past and I was in the future. What happens in my adult life is my responsibility, it's not due to someone else's garbage from a long time ago.
I was genuinely surprised when I looked at the house where I grew up. I felt nothing but curiosity to see how it looked. I am happy for the people that live there now because it looks so well maintained.
I enjoyed the visit, but I'm glad that I can return to now. I like now even with all of its challenges. And ultimately, I like the person I've become. Even, or because of, the split and slipped stitches that make me who I am."
I hope you have a great weekend.
