I’m sick of not having a network connection at home. Yes, I admit it, I have become dependent upon the Internet. Upon broadband, no less. A modem just won’t do it when I feel the sudden urge to upgrade my installation of Python on my laptop.
So I have an appointment tomorrow between 8 and 12 for the Time Warner guy to come by and hand me a cable modem. This means that someone will come by at about 2 in the afternoon. Such is the whimsy of the cable company. But on the bright side, this means that I am obligated to be physically in my apartment for about four to six hours tomorrow. This is a perfect excuse to get back to work on the Aran sweater! Hurrah!
Actually, I got back to work on it as soon as I got back from Seattle. I put in four rows that night as I waited for sleep. But I’m almost done with the front, so I get to move on to a new section. Keeping motivation on a big project like this is very much like keeping motivated on a long bike ride or a long run, at least for me. You look forward to the changes.

“Just a few more miles, and there’s a good hill climb.”
Except I don’t sweat nearly as much when I knit as I do when I ride. I must not be doing it right.
