Girls Night In

There are about seven other things I could or should be doing tonight, but I’ve set them all aside.  Some of them were even fun and exciting things to do, but they required being able to get out of town overnight, and I’ve got to work tomorrow (feh), so they’re out of the running.  I could have stayed later at work to finish unpacking (the actual move of my office finally happened today, and my new office looks like a storage room of my mess right now — hence the need to go to work tomorrow).  I need to be home finishing the chapter I have to submit tomorrow, but …

Instead I’m here, sitting on the cushy ottoman at A and J’s house.  It’s Craft night on Ocean Parkway!

I’ve got knitting in my bag (and writing), and I really need to be relaxing right now.  So craft night it is.  I’ll get a little further on my gorgeous merino lace shawl, and I’ll get to hang out with wonderful women, eat good food, and recharge my batteries.
