Well, mostly over the last month I've been toiling away on a big proposal. That went out this week, much to my relief. But there's been some other stuff too.
My little guy has been doing a lot of this:
Because he's been tired from doing a lot of this:
And in my post-proposal fog, after catching up on the mountains of laundry and getting my filthy house marginally cleaner, I started wandering around looking for the right thing to occupy my overtired brain.
About an hour later, I emerged from the fog to find I had made what you see above. Crochet?? I haven't crocheted anything in probably 6 or 7 years. Maybe this is what I need for recovery. Very therapeutic.
Oh yeah, I also have a weightlifting meet on Saturday. I've been training when I wasn't childcaring or proposaling, so I should do all right. My only goal is to do better than I did last meet (70#/95#). I'm actually opening at 75#/95#, and I made both openers yesterday. I'm feeling a lot stronger and faster than 3 months ago, my knee is better, and I've made great progress on snatch and clean (a little stalled on jerk), so I'm looking forward to seeing what numbers I can put up.
