Let's focus on something else
I'm trying not to think about a few things:
States east of me that start with M. Michigan = The closest stop on the Harlot Tour and yet too far. According to Google Maps, it's 5-1/2 hours from my house to Kalamazoo -- I'll bet it would take half that time (and worth considering) if it wasn't for that stupid lake. Maryland = Waaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Computers. I think I'm making progress. My mouse suffered no abuse last night (and neither did I spend all night with it in my hand). I'm dedicating the weekend to solving the problem(s) in one manner or another. I'll also be able to practice my knitting while computing (I've never been very good at it).
Knitting. I worked on Cromarty and by the end of the night, I'd frogged everything I'd accomplished and more. Obviously, I still need to practice "reading my knitting." I'm happy that I'm working a sleeve instead of one of the body pieces. The good news is that, in the process, I also ripped an additional mistake that I was going to live with, but now I won't have to. Maybe I just need to loosen up.
Smoking. My morning Quitnet numbers: 49 days; 983 cigs; 7 days, 12 hours; $171.50. By this time tomorrow, that cig number will be over a thousand. One thousand. 1,000. It's still hard sometimes, but numbers like that motivate me.
On the bright side:
States east of me that start with M. There will be bloggers galore at both events and I have not yet tired of such tales (or pictures). There are sure to be antics in Maryland with the list of known attendees being what it is; y'all be sure to spill. I want people stories sprinkled with pics of cute sheep, gorgeous yarn and breathtaking fiber. Don't be shy you guys -- if you recognize anyone/anything (a plain vanilla sweater, a tank top setting off metal detectors, Hulda, a sock taking in the sights, an Aran that you know you've seen somewhere before), you walk right up and say hello, rub some shoulders, take some pictures. No one's going to think you're weird -- you're one more crazy knitter amongst a bunch of crazy knitters! You know you'll be sorry if you don't. And I'm counting on you!!
Computers. Really, if it weren't for computers, I wouldn't be a part of all this fun.
Knitting. I'm holding down the fort at work today, and that means knitting! I'm going to practice reading Cromarty and I brought a baby bootie.
Smoking. Did you see those numbers? I'm so proud of all the quitters.
Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day.
