There’s been a long radio silence on the blog, and that was because:
– We were planning a year-long relocation to Mexico
– We found out we’re having a baby in January
I realize plenty of people blog about life changes as they’re unfolding, but it didn’t work for me. We had to thoughtfully roll out the communication for first the relocation and then the pregnancy, meaning there were long stretches when only certain people knew. By the time the info was blog-able we were so deep in logistics that there wasn’t time for much else.
But now I’m in Mexico! Cholula, to be exact. R. is here doing research for his dissertation. I wanted it to be a joint adventure and my job was willing to give me a year’s leave of absence. Then we found out about the baby. I guess when we have adventures, we tend to do several at once.
I plan to blog about planning a move abroad and having a baby abroad, since those were both topics I googled a lot this spring. But there will still be posts about knitting, quilting, and spinning, since I entered the country with a borrowed Hitchiker wheel (thanks to Christine), a pieced and pinned quilt top, about 20 skeins of yarn, and several pounds of fiber. Let the projects begin!
