The Few.
The Proud.
The Readers.

I want to thank all of you nice, wonderful and exceedingly patient knitters for your patience these past few weeks while my poor blog lay neglected and forlorn. I simply haven't had the creative energy to blog.

Not only did I have to move my office all of a sudden in February, but couple of deadlines have caught up with me. One is a grant proposal for a low-cost spay-neuter clinic, and one is a proposal to put before the Board of Veterinary Medicine for the operating plan for the aformentioned clinic.

The BVM proposal is due tomorrow.

Morning.

Early.

But it's not like I'm nervous or anything. That slight quaking you detect in the text here?

The text is supposed to look out of focus and squiggly.

New typeface. It's called, "Trepidation Italic." Like it?

It's not from nerves or insomnia or mainlining Maui coffee (thanks again, Lisa).

Honest.

Really.

Okay, okay ... my Mom didn't believe me either.

The truth?

I am as nervous as a cat in a roomful of two-year-olds.

Here is my whole labor of love, on paper, about to be picked to shreds.

Ulp.

I hope to be back to knitting content by the weekend ... unless you really want to know how many different types of suture we plan to buy and what the instrument sterilization procedure will be.

Best,

That sounds like a very worthwhile thing. I wish you a ton of luck with the process.

Oh, Dez, thoughts and prayers are with you for this! I enjoy your animal content as much as the knitting!

Best of luck on your grants - I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you.

btw, you totally cracked me up with the 'trepidation italic'

OK, Dez, it's 11 a.m Eastern time on Thursday -- are you still shaking, or is it all over?

Good luck with it, here's hoping all the shaking paid off!... Hope you can take a well deserved recoup break once you've a second to yourself again.

Thanks for the info on how to make "Imagine" my back ground. It's a bit fuzzy but it brings a smile to my heart! ( I'm completely computer inept unless someone tells me what to do.)

lol @ trepidation italic.

it's one thing to think in that font-- just don't dream in it!

Best wishes. Wish I "knew someone", as only one can in Louisiana politics, to put the good word in. And, of course, we'll all be waiting to hear how it went.

You can do it - and you've got more support behind you than you know.

Best!
