Never have I had the desire to knit lace. I can appreciate it and those who choose to knit on tiny needles with lace weight yarn, but it never appealed to me. I can handle the occasional yarn over, knit two together because I can see the development of the big picture.
ZAP ZAP ZIPPTY ZAP (that is my brain frying on overload – lots of craziness in my life) So what do I do??? Drink? That was on the list, but we’re all out! (Need to make a list) Run screaming out of the house? was considered… I start to knit lace…… yep a meditation of sorts amongst the LOTS of chaos
Let’s define LOTS shall we?
Semi-promotion at work (more responsibility, some more money and a ton more work)
Grad school night class
Crafter Monkey gets bronchitis weekend before school starts, fever, hacking cough, and body aches.
School starts for the Monkey Boy (alone ) bummer.
Monkey Man still unemployed
Lots of homework assignments for me
Crafter Monkey not getting better, still hacking and fever
Grandma in hospital (prayers please) so trying to get up to see her, but can’t due to sick Monkey
Crafter Monkey starts school on week two, still hacking, but finished all the antibiotics
Crafter Monkey has rock extracted from ear by ENT
Staff Meeting (I get to go in early to work)
Crafter Monkey has follow up with pediatrician: she has walking pneumonia, no more school for the week, more antibiotics, and an inhaler.
Talk with Gma in the hospital, happy to hear she’s getting better.
Worrying about my Mom, she’s been up to the hospital nearly every day all day to stay with Gma. She’s looking tired and run down.
Monkey Man still has had no great leads finding a job.
More Grad School assignments
Grad School virtual discussions
Monkey’s needing Mama time (love this part – wish I had more)
Picked up Monkey Boy at school, he was feverish and body aches (@10:30am)
Back to school @ 12:30pm to pick up the Crafter Monkey with same thing!
Monkey Man has a few interviews, but nobody is smart enough to hire him.
Wee Monkey has fever then bout with diarrhea
Monkeys home work
Girl Scouts (cookie sales & deliveries) – yes you’ll get your eventually
Grandma is getting weaker.
4H horse bowl meetings
Monkey Man not feeling well (he’d kill me if I blogged what was really wrong with him – Love you honey)
Blah, blah, blah, blah…… Yep now I’m done whining. I know I’m not then only one out there with mondo crud going on, but stop the carousel I want to get off – I’m getting vertigo.
I guess I may be the ONLY person that finds solace from stress and anxiety by knitting lace. It does require all of my concentration. But I do feel refreshed – almost like meditation.
Now that I re-read through all this…. I guess this is why I haven’t blogged in a bit. I miss blogging – tell me you miss me too! I can’t wait to show off all my knitting (meditation craft)
