Not sure if anyone noticed, or remembers, but on 4/5 I posted a little poll asking about what y’all want to see as far as the primary content of my blog. Thanks very much to the FOUR people who took the time to respond. Looks like I won’t be changing anything. Apparently, among those who expressed a preference, the variety I provide you with is appealing. I’ll just keep spoon feeding you the same old drivel for another few months when I get the next wild hair up my ass and decide I need to change again.
I’m back at work in my cozy little office trying very hard to forget all of the unpleasantness of the last week. Not doing such a good job, but oh well.
I got the first sock for Josh done and the fucking thing is too tight at the bind off. I’ve chatted with some other knitters and got some suggestions for how to fix it, but for now the sock is in time out. I just don’t have the patience to deal with it right now.
I finished a crocheted shawl for myself and I’m quite pleased with how it looks. It still needs to be blocked, but I’m hoping to get to that tonight. I started another shawl for myself and brought it to work today for the lunch time crafting. The other one only took a week and that was with working on the damn sock, so maybe this one will go quicker. I’m back in a mood where I need to be able to finish things and see some progress.
The kid drove me absolutely crazy this weekend. I am ever so glad that we only have to deal with her a few days a month. Any more than that and I’m sure I’d have to smack her. Hard.
I finally found the picture of me and my dad that I’d been looking for. My mom had it printed and in a frame upstairs. I brought it to work today and scanned it so that hopefully tonight I can print myself a copy.
I’m running on about 4 hours of sleep today and so I’m not doing so well. For some reason I had a really hard time falling asleep last night. I did take my pills a little later than usual, but not that much. Not sure what caused it, just really hoping I get some decent sleep tonight. I slept like shit all weekend.
The mood has been alright I guess. I still seem to have a fair amount of energy and I didn’t get too bitchy with Josh. I was royally pissed off that he blew off our anniversary, but the next day he went shopping on his way home from work and spoiled the hell out of me, so I guess that was ok. I’ve been practicing my DBT skills quite a bit lately and I know that’s been helping. I know for a fact that those skills are the only thing that kept me from kicking his ass out last week.
I really wish I could have a nice, quiet, productive day today with minimal interruptions. Not going to happen. My mom has already called once and Josh is texting me. I don’t really want to talk to either of them. I’m ignoring Josh. We’ll see how long that lasts.
Calgon take me away…
