As you can tell by the title of today's post, I'm a little stressed out. There are several factors to this stress.
Being the mother of a teenager who is almost exactly like I was at that age is no fun. I have a fairly decent idea of how Bud works. Not a clear idea, but I can usually figure it out. He's a lot like me in soooo many ways. Some of them make me proud. Some make me cringe.
I miss my husband. I work in the very early morning. My work day starts at 4:00. Not long after I get home, the Man leaves for his second shift job. He works Sunday- Friday, and I work Tuesday-Saturday. Which means we are home together on Saturday nights. That is our only night together. And getting up at 3:00 am to be to work for 4:00 usually means that I'm ready for bed at about 9:00. Which is the same time we put Ladybug to bed on non-school nights. So, it's not like we can curl up on the couch and watch a movie. When we do, I'm usually snoring within a half hour.
I haven't been able to go to knitting group at all for the month of March. Ladybug has basketball on Monday nights and it ends just as knitting group begins. I could still go, but that means I have to plan dinner for 4:30 in the afternoon or 8:00. So, no knitting group until next month.
Lastly, this knitting pattern I'm trying to design is driving me crazy. I just want something simple to knit for my night alone tonight. I'm thinking I might just dig out some cotton yarn and make a simple yarn over dishcloth. Nice and mindless.
I hope you're all having a less stressed week than I am.
