This makes me really sad. My knitting blog and no knitting; lots of other crafty stuff like this:
I made it over the weekend, cool huh? Yeah that was version 1, version 2 will be much better I think. I am also still piecing out the beginnings of the patchwork square. Does anybody have a pattern for a poodle?! I want to knit a poodle applique for a square because I detest intarsia. Oh, I am also embroidering a teatowel from Sublime Stitching with a little blue bird that has a banner. I am going to embroider the word "control" on the banner and mail it to my MIL. I wonder if she'll get the joke.
So the title goes, Prozac Nation. I am really depressed right now. I am depressed because I am depressed. Does that make sense? Going into the dr because I have gained weight and am having dizzy spells I did not expect to be told that I am depressed. I'm always depressed, and lately, for the last couple of weeks or so I have felt more so, but it's a manageable thing. The dr (nurse practioner) believes that my depression is making me not lose weight and even gain it. That sucks so hard. Almost as hard as being told, "Here's some Prozac. It's not going to be in full effect for about 8-12 weeks and you will probably be on it for a minimum of 2 years. Congratulations! However, if we are right this will be the first step in helping you lose weight and feel great! I am proud of you (this was so a Paula Abdul moment) for being proactive! Way to go! Now here's a pill."
I hate this. I don't want to be on medication, but if it helps me feel better I want it more than anything in the world. argh.
Also, I got a tasty surprise from tigerlilith on the knittyboard. A nice package full of Carmel Shortbread or Millionaire's Shortbread. Yum. I haven't had it in nearly five years, can you believe? This stuff is delish. Somehow though, in light of recent events, I didn't eat the whole thing, and I only had 2 of the smarties she packed along with them. Smarties are sooo much tastier than M & Ms. (For you Americans, like me, Smarties are those nasty chalky sherberty halloween and kidzmix candies in a roll. For the Brits and others they are a cardboard tube filled with rainbow colored candy coated disks of chocolate that taste creamier and darker than M & Ms.) However, I don't like reusing the cardboard tubes nearly as much as the M & M mini's tubes. Those are like my own personal version of the chibis. Which I finally gave in and bought, crooked tip and all. My take, meh. Didn't really notice a difference.
So that's it for tonite. Toodles.
