Meh. Not such a great week. Two potlucks in two days was too much for me and I’m feeling kind of bloated as a result.
I finally pulled the trigger and stepped down from a lead role with one of my knitting groups. This has been a long time in coming and I feel good about my decision, despite some second-guessing this weekend. My choice is directly tied to the participation of two individuals. It’s a shame when a good group is tainted by one or two interlopers who contribute little to nothing while sucking the life out of the body. Or maybe it’s just me who feels that way. In any case, I’m less and less inclined to voluntarily spend my free time with people I find vexing and toxic, and while my involvement with this group may be less, I do intend to maintain my contact with those of the group whose company is enjoyable.
I have some other thoughts rumbling around in my head but I’m somewhat reluctant to voice them publicly just now–fear of karma or whatever–but I will say I’m pretty sure I’m ready for the next thing, whatever that is. My life could use a little shake-up right about now.
Better days ahead, people. Better days.
