It's hard to figure out ahead of time which life events are going to be life changing. I mean, some of them are obvious, like joining the Peace Corps (haven't done this, but I imagine it would be life changing), or graduating from high school (have done). But, in the day-to-day, it's really difficult to predict which people we meet will become life-long friends, which trips that we take will change us forever, you get the picture...
And so, here are a few things I remember about our trip to Duluth in November 1999:
- We went to a yarn store and I bought the materials to make one of these:
- A book was purchased called "Knitting Without Tears"
- There is a reason the book isn't called "Knitting without throwing your knitting across the table in frustration"
- I called my dh and mentioned that I had been having some dizzy spells and I wondered if I might be pregnant
I'd like to visit Duluth with you again, but I'm not prepared to go back in the too near future. Life changing, indeed!
