I've been awfully tired the last couple of days, and I'm not sure why. Wednesday was understandable. I had to get up at the ungodly hour of 6:30AM to go to a continuing education event in New Hampshire and only got about 6 hours sleep after being up for about 34 hours before. It was a good day, though, as the speaker was a friend from school whom I hadn't seen for probably ten years. On top of that, one of classmates - who I didn't realize lives less than an hour from me and whom I also hadn't seen in nearly 3 years - was also there, so it was kind of a mini-reunion.
And there was knitting ! I took along my sock-in-progress and started knitting away when the lights went down to help keep myself awake. Then I looked over and saw the woman sitting next to me was also knitting (a poncho, on a very nice wool/acrylic blend that had been gifted to her). Then later I noticed a woman on the other side of the room was knitting (a pink sock on two circs for her daughter - I asked during a break).
Today kind of defies explanation, though. I slept pretty solidly for nearly 12 hours, which one would think would be sufficient to recover, but I still woke up feeling rather zombie-ish. This evening we went to see Karen - the laughing sweater model who can be seen here modeling some of David's 2007 line (scroll down a bit) - in what I believe she said is her second public performance with her four-woman acoustic band, and I was using David as a pillow for most of the show (not a reflection on the music, though it was kind of soothing).
Anyway, aside from the sock, which is very near to completion...
...it's been a fairly unproductive week off so far. This is not good, as the major item I need to get done this week are my tax returns. I put the basics into TurboTax some time ago, but with all the alpaca stuff (both owning them myself and treating those of other people) it gets a bit more complicated, and it's all that complicated mess that I need to haul out and get sorted. At least I know that I didn't make any money at any of it, but it still needs to be documented. First, though, I need to deal with this:
After I've gotten more sleep.
