I "heart" my commenters!

Thanks you guys for stopping by “Snapshots” – your feedback is very much appreciated!

I was looking around the blogsphere today and noticed lots of folks who are going through the same angst-laden period that I am, and it feels good to know that I’m not alone in my confusion this time of year.

The Mother’s Day holiday seemed to bring out a lot of introspection about 30-something female choices concerning kids. You would think that we would be past making other people feel bad about their choices. I feel so blessed that at least I have choices and opportunities to have angst about. My grandma certainly didn’t have as many opportunities in front of her at my age . . .

Also for some reason I fell into reading an lot of academic blogs, and it is quite amusing to see everyone expressing their frustrations about bonehead students and their joy at finishing final grading of exams and papers. (For example, DON’T email your professor with the same question every five minutes until you get a response. They have a life just like you do and aren’t chained to the computer to be at your beck and call. All it does is tick them off.)

I had a busy weekend and haven’t been able to write much. Went to the local Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning, instead of running and bought 2 pints of strawberries and a bunch of rhubarb . . . so guess who made strawberry rhubarb crisp from scratch this weekend! And guess what was totally gone by late Sunday night? YUM! Unfortunately, that meant that I didn’t do my long run this weekend, since I spent Saturday AM at the market and K needed the car to play in soccer games both Saturday and Sunday afternoon (Saturday was a rain date.) However, I did get a lot of knitting done, but I still have a ways to go on the baby blanket. I so hope the blanket is done by the 22nd . . . I’m getting tired of working on it. After I finish both it and the shawl, I think my next projects should be trying to learn how to knit socks. K goes through socks something awful, and if I could knit some decent dress socks that would be cool.

Busy, busy, busy today!

oh I think it is a universal human trait that we like to judge other people's decisions. I don't think that will ever go away. Kath, I'm sure what ever decision you make will be the right one, as I said before, God has a path for us all (now if only HE would send me directions to get to said path - smile).
Glad to hear you are enjoying the area farmer's markets, I was working one this past Sunday for the local Dem's (voter registration), I can't wait for the real vegetable season to start!

I used to do stuff for a local Dems group too - I was quite the fixture at a local Farmer's Market (which happens to be the same one I went to on Saturday.) :-) If the Sunday one is the one I'm thinking of, you may be pretty close to where I live. :-)
