Blah, Blah, Blah

Ready for your weekly update?

Well...I've found something that I like knitting again. And it's totally mindless. And I totally cannot show you because it's secret gift knitting. But it's looking good and I guess I needed mindless. No, I know I needed mindless knitting. Why...?

Work is crazy. Some days things go really well, not like a well oiled machine but at least we're headed in that direction. Then there are the "other days". The days where my pulsing headache starts around 11:00 and continues until 4:30. The days were nothing seems to go like it should and every child seems to have ADD. Today was the latter. I wanted to put my key through my eye and I was snapping at everyone about anything and everything. So mindless knitting is good to keep the crazy eye twitches away.

I've also been really busy after work. Lessons to teach, random meetings, run here, do that, fetch this...Maybe a little too busy. I'm learning that the word "no" is ok, that I will not be fired if I don't go to the uptenth billionth staff development, and that I don't have to go to every single standing weekly function. If something better comes up I can do that instead.

Another thing I've been partaking in (which, coincidentally adds to the busy-ness, but in a way I'm enjoying) is social time. I'll admit I haven't taken much time to hang out with some of my friends outside of the places I would normally see them (church, work, etc.) so I'm trying to get out with them more. And I'm liking it. So I think I will keep doing more of that for now.

Speaking of social time...I'm having a bunch of friends over on Sunday to hang out since I have Monday off for Labor Day. This is both simultaneously debilitatingly stressful and incredibly motivating. Today I was stressed but hopefully by tomorrow I will be motivated again so I can get this apartment cleaned.

Oh yes, the importance of mindless knitting is VERY important!!! This is why I knit kitty blankets and am knitting baby washcloths right now! Some days even a basic basketweave is too much for my brain. I think it's the kids that zap the brain cells!!!

Enjoy!!! Social is soooooo important. Just like mindless knitting is....and watch... I'm telling can predict the moon phases and the weather (big barometer changes by that ADDness of the kids. Since I get a headache with the barometer change, it wasn't a good mix when I was subbing elem. Hey, would you throw me some ceu's? Since you're going to all this staff developement and all *wink*

Have a Fab weekend
