So I had a bit of a health scare earlier this week. I will spare everyone the gory details but I am fine and will continue to be fine. However, I was off work until Thursday and under doctor's orders to take it easy so I had a lot of time to think. This is where the good part comes in. I have always been a worrier. It is in my genes. My mother was somewhat of a worry wart but it was her father who took the cake. I am definitely a grandpa's girl and have continued his legacy of being paralyzed by fear. Now that I am almost 31 (I HATE saying that!) I have decided to let this fear and worrying go. It was a pretty easy revelation but putting it into action is different. However, I am proud of the way I have handled my biggest source of worry - my job. When I got to work on Thursday I realized that no one did anything while I was gone and my desk looked like a bomb blew up on it. However, I did not worry. I just sorted everything into piles and got as much done as I could. It took me until Friday afternoon but I got it done and did not stress myself out over it. When my boss went into her martyr act by telling me that she had to work late and come in early because I was not there I just let it roll off my back when I would normally get myself worked up over it. I am proud of myself and even though I know I will have some set backs it feels good to finally feel like I am in control of my life. I will no longer allow other people's thoughts, feelings and reactions to control me. Whew now onto the knitting!
So in the stressed out state I have been in for the last several months I have not done much knitting. I have been so exhausted when I get home that I only want to veg out in front of the TV. Well that is going to be no more. I will knit some every day and not allow my job to suck my enjoyment from my life. So I am knitting and reading a lot more in the last week because that is what I enjoy doing. Right now I am reading The Historian and loving it. I have also been knitting. I finished the March Mid Month KAL
The basket weave pattern is very cute. I love the theme of this cloth with the bunny from the March KAL. Get it - the bunny and the basket!? Too cute. I have to work on my projects that have been languishing in my bag for way to long. The two I am going to be concentrating on the next week or so are my Irish Hiking Scarf and the Fuzzy Foot. Of course it is warming up now so I will not have much use for a wool scarf and slippers but I want to finish them already!
Now I will leave you with my PS 2.0 picture for this post.
This cherry picture hangs next to our shower and I love it. It is a nice pick me to the winter doldrums. However, spring is on it's way and I am so happy. I have had the windows open all weekend when it wasn't raining and it is nice to get the fresh air in here finally. Until next time ....
