WIP Wednesday: And It’s Only Wednesday

IMG_1881This week has sucked. We’re getting our second dumping of snow. I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes in the dentist chair yesterday having a tooth prepped for a crown and now all my teeth ache and so does my jaw. The grocery store was a madhouse full of snow panickers. My uncle died yesterday. (It’s a blessing really but not for the reasons you’d think.) I still haven’t finished my Christmas shopping. I can’t get beyond the ribbing of the Sparrow Fingerless Mitts. I seem to have lost the ability to follow a pattern. I really want to retreat and cast on a sock (head hat). Maybe I should offer you some cheese to go with this whine.

I’m going to get some slightly warm cocoa, a couple of Advil and a handful of stitch markers and revisit the mitts. I am passing on the wake and funeral. Why go when the only person you’d want to console is in the casket. I did get a lottery ticket but with the way my week is going I’m sure I won’t hit the big one.

  2. Sounds like a hard week. Personally I’d cast on the hat, sometimes you need something simple and enjoyable to knit with your hands and give your mind a chance to think, or just a chance to not-think

    2 hrs and 45 mins? That’s a LONG time. o.0 Hope the rest of the work is quicker.
    Maybe set the mitts aside and indulge the urge for a hat or socks…
    Sending you a hug or two. 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear about your uncle. And all the other things making this week a whine and cheese fest. Why do these things always have to happen at the same time? Sending some good vibes your way. Maybe tomorrow will be better (??).

    Oh crap – I’m so sorry about it all – this totally sucks. Now, since I’m days behind, I do hope you’re feeling better – nothing hurts worse than dental work, imo – and I’m sorry for your loss. Better to rest and deal with the death personally, as it suits you best – imo once again.
