Lack of Dance = Shot Nerves

I haven't forgotten you, don't worry, my dears. It's been a little hectic hereabouts what with work and the ins and outs of life with a roomie. Sleeping in the living room is a bit of an adventure when you have to get up at 5am for your shift at work too lol
I'm going through severe dance withdrawl. And that is not a pretty sight. A word of advice to those who read these words: never, ever deprive a dancer of dancing if you want a dancer to remain in a happy mood. Walking is just not cutting it anymore. Must look into finding something soon; my nerves are shot from the lack of movement :P
Knitting report: Going to start a pair of socks soon as my fingers need some dpn dancing lol Also need to work up a baby set for roomie's sister's nephew due in August. Roomie's family has been very welcoming and are a lovely bunch so I want to do a little something for their newest member's arrival.
Had a fur-gang report from Mom: Ziva is still evil but not emptying the basement water dish quite as often as before her surgery (April 3rd). Eddie has been having some tummy trouble; at nearly 22 years old that's to be a bit expected I think. Rest of the gang are well.
That's all the news that's fit to print!
