Today, I need an attitude adjustment. I am allowing this thing with Tom to affect me. Of course it affects the way our home runs. I can handle that. I know I can handle it. But, even though I've spent the past two days catching up on sleep (and I know more-or-less feel rested), I continue to have a very short fuse and get cranky at everyone very easily.
Tonight, I will finish watching The Shawshank Redemption (which we started last night) and then go to bed. Tomorrow, I will spend some time sewing something (I don't know what yet). Cloth is calming for me.
I was knitting today. I've been working on a scarf. I've got the knit, increase, and decreases down. It's slow going though. I don't feel like I'm making progress on it. I decide today that I will likely be a utility knitter ... kind of like my crocheting ... I do them because I "need" the finished result, not because I enjoy the process. I do appreciate how portable both are though, for being able to do on the run. I actually only tend to knit when I'm out or when I'm on the phone, so, I am grateful to be getting something done during "dead" time. I enjoy quilting. I also enjoy painting watercolors. I suppose I could try to do that tomorrow, but, I can see it being a big fiasco with the boys wanting to participate and me wanting it to be an "alone, leave me alone, me" project. Better stick with sewing something for tomorrow and boosting my joyous spirits.
