Too Many Directions
My focus is being pulled in so many directions lately that no single item in my life is flourishing. I’m churning in circles and don’t know where to look.
Multitasking, that essential skill of modern life, is slowly turning me into a nervous wreck. The kids, the house, the yard, the finances, adult jobs here and there – each is screaming to be done right now. In my perfect world, I would go from finished linear task to finished linear task all day long.
My knitting life is as close as I get to my ideal existence. I know others have numerous garments on their needles. More than two active projects, one easy and one hard, causes me to literally stop knitting. I need my stitching to be an escape from my life, not a reflection of it.
On top of everything, I’m totally bummed that I can’t eat one of my favorite treats. My system can no longer handle frozen Hostess Ding Dongs. All that wonderful chocolate goodness has decided to wreak havoc with my insides.
The kids are happy. Guess what surprise was in their lunches today.
