A Long Way to Go (and ashort time to get there)

April 16th, 2007

In typically Amy fashion, I seem to have much more on my To Do list than I have time to even think about doing. My plan for today is to plop myself on the couch and finish, in this order, the crochet felted bag for Saturday’s class, and at least one of the pair of Argyle Socks for Vogue. The bag will take about 30 more minutes until it’s ready for felting. Apres-felting, I can then photograph it, blog about the class, send out an email about the class, and generate some more interest. It’s a cute granny-square-inspired bag that will make for a fun time.

The Vogue socks? If I get myself past the halfway point, the last leg (so to speak) will seem to go oh-so-much-more-quickly. This is how I work. It’s all subconscious mental gymnastics.

It’s 10:15am. I’ve just finished organizing the shop to do lists and getting Sandra all caught up. She’s just headed out. I’m in my comfy lululemon drawstring pants and my comfier (but grease-stained) Olivia sweatshirt. I’ve got a big plan for roasted yam wedges for lunch, with a bottle of Pellegrino from Costco as a nice treat. I’ve got Casino Royale on DVD, and on Tivo, several bad movies and hours of 90210, plus a few episodes of current shows that I’m actually into. It should be a good, productive day.

Thanks for the helpful comments on the last post. I don’t know why it took me so long to connect my mood (or lack thereof) with the hormones. That should have been an obvious red flag, no? I’m talking to my GP on wednesday afternoon about my concerns. I’m willing to stick with it, if there’s a good chance things will get better as I get used to the pills. It’s been a month and a half. I can make it another month and a half to see what happens, right?

OK. Off to productive and healthy deadline knitting.

    Glad to hear you’re doing a bit better. When I first went on the pill it took a good 3 months before my hormones settled down. I am so envious of your day, even if it is deadline knitting, its knitting. Want to trade and study oceanography for me?

    Seriously, don’t mess around with your hormones. It will only get worse, from my experience. After 4 years of being on the pill, I went from slightly sad all the time to horribly depressed to dreaming about driving head-first into every semi truck that passed me three days before my period every month.

    I’m behind and had to read “Stuck” to understand today. I know all the emotions your are talking about but mine seem to have come as a result of menopause. The thing about the sadness in this case is that it isn’t connected with life. My life is great too but I still have bouts with all the emotions you describe. They do go away and things begin to look normal again. I hope your day was everything you wanted it to be. I love days when I can do just what you did, especially when at the end of the day I can cross something off my list!

    I can certainly identify with the mental gymnastics. Getting to the point where “it will go much more quickly” (especially working on essays) means I am then allowed to procrastinate another hour/day/ or whatever time frame fits the project!

    Blimey, I read ‘roasted yam wedges’ as ‘roasted YARN wedges’. Who says I’m obsessed?!
