Today I decided that my priorities must be adjusted, even if just for today. There is a "situation" in my kitchen. Even though on Thursdays I usually don't have to cook dinner (because I have class, and the boys spend the early evening with some friends), there is not even a place to put another dirty dish on the counter top (and no matter what, I KNOW there will be more dirty dishes today, even if I don't have to cook dinner).... And there is not a burner on top of the stove which doesn't already have a dirty pan on it..
And normally by this time of the year we already have our tax refund, but this year I have to get some organizing done so that I may even *begin* the process of filing our return...I have to tell you that the "lady who cleans my house" has **really** let things go, but, at least she is somewhat bothered by this. And so, as an immediate step toward rectifying this issue, progress on the Fana Cardigan has been halted until my cleaning lady can get things under control...though she is quite motivated by thoughts of knitting soon, so I think she'll find her inner strength and just DO SOME DISHES so that knitting may resume tonight!!
On a much happier note, one of my friends from my moms' group, whom I'll call "Catherine", is showing initial signs of a possible knitting addiction. I know this for a fact, because yesterday she mentioned to me that she understands why people might have more than one project going at a time... There are certain projects which just cannot be used as background material during a conversation, and so she was thinking she might need an easier project than the one she currently is working on so that she does not have to put down her knitting when she talks with her husband. Yup.
I think "world peace" might be within our reach... Let me know how things go with your class!
