I taught this morning and it went really well. I think I maybe talked a little too fast, but not obnoxiously fast. There were the requisite technical blips, but nothing I couldn’t handle. In all I’d say it was a success.
I talked to my boss this morning and she said she’s really proud of me for recognizing that there was a problem and then asking for help. She says this is huge for me, which I suppose is true. I hate asking for help, with anything. So, I asked her for some more help – I asked for the afternoon off. She was more than happy to let me have it, provided I didn’t tell Josh. She knew that I needed some time to myself and she wanted to make sure I got it.
And I am. And I’m happy.
So far I’ve managed to vacuum our area, run 2 loads of laundry, reorganize 2 of my knitting bags and put a slew of supplies back in their proper place, figured out how to cat-proof my knitting area, made lunch, made a mocha (hey, it’s before dinner, I can have one!), wound 6 partial balls of sock yarn up, and did the math so I can start my uncle’s socks tonight. I’d start them now but my mom loaned our kitchen scale to my sister and since his yarn is all in one ball I have to wait for her to bring that home so I can split the yarn. No worries, there’s plenty to keep me busy.
But I’m supposed to be resting…? No, I’m supposed to be relaxing and right now doing stuff is very relaxing for me. Besides, if I can get all of the to do list that doesn’t require anyone’s help done today, then I have TWO WHOLE DAYS to fuck off.
I leave you with some yarn porn…
That is 3 pairs of socks for Mom, 4 pairs for Josh, and 6 pairs for me. Guess I’d better get to knitting!
