What in the world have a I gotten myself into.
The stressors in my life right are:
- Work. (It’s been a week.)
- My health. (Why can’t I feel better?)
- Going on vacation soon. (Wait, shouldn’t that relax me?)
- Doing a craft show at the end of the month. (Perhaps it will be better than last time.)
- Editing photos from a job I had last weekend. (How in the world did I take 600+ photos.)
What do I have got going for me? Well, my friend Joan is coming over tonight, so we can commiserate about work stuff. And I’m dog-sitting Patrick here, who is being snorgled by my mom, and time with the Paddy Dog is always nice.
I need to just focus on one thing at a time. Tonight, it’s all about relaxation. I have a long weekend because of Columbus Day, so I have a little extra time to get things together, and to get myself together.
All in all, I will find time to knit for the show and for myself. I also plan on knitting over vacation, too. I am looking forward to my temporary escape, but the preparation is going to be insane.
I need to stop getting myself all worked up over Christmas. It happens every year. And this year, it’s bad because I’m crafting a lot of stuff for people. Granted, a lot of those things are already done, and I’m blowing things WAY out of proportion, as I usually do in situations such as these. Still I have three projects that I agonizing over.
The first is a project that is taking itty bitty yarn on itty bitty needles. It’s a lot slower going than what I am used to. Still, that is a part of knitting. And the pay off? I know that when the recipient of this present sees it, he’ll get a big kick out of his gift. That is what drives me on.
The second and the third are not so bad. One, I am working on during my breaks at work, and the other hasn’t been started yet, but should only take a few days.
Even as I write this, I see I have a plan. Do I still get stressed? Of course! Is the prednisone that I’m still on making me squirrely? Yes! Am I just one big bipolar dork? Absolutely!
My goal is to be done with the two easy ones by the end of this week. Only time will tell if I can do it. Here’s to trying, at least.
