I'm kinda annoyed I had to skip knitting group last night. Okay, I suppose I didn't have to but what with it being the first big snow and the crappy roads and my having to take transit for at least one more winter, AND being stuck on a bus for three hours sitting on Glenmore that morning (okay, the full three hours wasn't on Glenmore, it was only half of it.. the rest was spent on another bus and train..) I was not up to doing anything more but going home (which took me two hours), heating some french onion soup, making a pot of tea and going to bed soon after Velociraptor.

This week is taking a chunk out of me. I'll be happy once class and driving lessons are done, then I can handle Christmas and hopefully things will look up in the new year.

ETA: My blog design is borked, I need a new one but I suck with css and I don't have time or inclination to search through premade ones to find one I can live with. Oy.
