My newest obsession that I wrote about in my last post has been temporarily put aside so that I can work on a secret project, the yarn for which arrived yesterday. It's callllllling me! But I can't show you that or even tell you much about it, cause it's seeeecret.
What have I been doing? Saturday Gibbering and I babysat our friend's 19 month old toddler for five hours. He's adorable, he loves us, he was astonishingly well behaved (except for one decibel-rich tantrum), and he napped for a whole hour of that five hours, but he still completely wiped the two of us out. How do you people with kids do it??
Work is still astonishingly stinky, crazy, stressful and overworked. I estimate that each of my team members is doing around two and a half full time job's worth of work, which will probably only increase from here on in. Sigh. My desk is a TIP.
What I really want to do is pully my other current project out of my bag and keep working on it: I'm crocheting again. I'm crocheting a big granny square rug (as in like a big giant granny square, not a big rug made up of little granny squares) from some yarn I got courtesty of Yarnivorous' stash clearing. On Saturday night I stayed home and taught myself to crochet the granny square. I KNOW HOW TO LIVE IT UP, YEEEEEHAW! I'm finding it quite soothing once I get into the rhythm of it, actually. And watching people catching sight of me crocheting in the car on the way home in the afternoons is very funny. They seem to think it's something you should only do in private, like picking your nose or something. Not that I would.
Anyhoo. I have a big stressful day ahead of me, and to cap it all off I have a dentist appointment tonight. Yay me.
