Typically Typical

It never fails. I make great plans to sit and knit for a couple of hours and there is a mini crisis that has to be dealt with right then. Yesterday morning I got all my usual things done and then had to help The Husband with the table that resides in the kitchen. It’s become a necessary fixture in our kitchen as extra counter space. It holds the microwave, bread basket, dog treats and assorted human snacks. On Thursday night it had been bumped and the leg fell off. It’s been loose for a while so it wasn’t unexpected. But what was unexpected was the fact that it couldn’t be easily fixed. It was a hand me down (free!) IKEA table that was wobbly when we got it so I should have had lower expectations. Anyway after giving up and dismantling the old table I moved in another old table and got as much stuff on it as possible. It’s slightly smaller than the other one. Once this was done I got distracted by a few other little chores and then the phone rang and my time just slipped away. I did manage to squeeze in a few rows so it wasn’t a complete loss. Today will be different though. I have tons of laundry to do and a few other chores plus N will be home so I’m not planning to get any knitting at all done.*

*Yeah right. I’ll be knitting every minute I can to make up for yesterday.

    I totally agree, what a bummer, but hey, when the universe pushes you around, it’s time to push back and ignore things that need to get done and knit away!
