The New Schedule

I don’t know that the new schedule is working so well for Myles. The Husband gets up early and takes Myles out. I sleep a bit later and this is what I find when I get downstairs: Myles out cold catching up on his beauty sleep. N is staying up later in the evening and sleeping later in the morning. I’m wondering if us all being on different schedules is throwing Myles all off.

There was no knitting again yesterday. Between the headache (it’s the lingering variety) and the lack of knitting mojo I may never finish the socks.

    Myles is probably super happy to have his family with him no matter adjustments… real adjustment is when life goes back to “normal” whatever that is 🙂 We may all need therapy adjusting. Hope you feel better headaches are difficult .. I know. Stay safe and well. Until later

  2. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a few days off of knitting, especially if you have a headache. I had a three-day headache three weeks ago and did not knit after the first day. The rest makes the champion, right? You’ll finish those socks.

    Today I frogged a cardigan started last year that Idecided I didn’t want to finish. Maybe you have a project lying around somewhere that you know you don’t want to finish that you could frog? That still counts as knitting – it is all part of the creative process.

  4. I think that you should forget about the socks for a little while and curl up on the couch with Myles and a cup of tea! ❤

  7. Hope your headache is gone soon! I’d say poor Myles, but he looks like he’s doing OK there. He may be a bit disrupted, but he is getting attention from all three of you and getting couch snuggles with you regularly – he is fine!

  8. Certainly you will finish the socks! Maybe not until your toes start getting chilled next fall, but you will finish the socks. And wear them with sandals to show off the heels!

  9. an article by Scott Berinato, published in the Harvard Business Review. He interviews David Kessler who co-wrote “On Grief and Grieving Finding the Meaning of Grief through the Five Stages of Loss” with Elisabeth Kugler-Ross and recently published Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief.

    The article is titled That Discomfort You’re Feeling is Grief.

    Some quotes
    … we’re also feeling anticipatory grief. Anticipatory grief is that feeling we get about what the future holds when we’re uncertain. Usually it centers on death. We feel it when someone gets a dire diagnosis or when we have the normal thought that we’ll lose a parent someday. Anticipatory grief is also more broadly imagined futures. There is a storm coming. There’s something bad out there. With a virus, this kind of grief is so confusing for people. Our primitive mind knows something bad is happening, but you can’t see it. This breaks our sense of safety. We’re feeling that loss of safety. I don’t think we’ve collectively lost our sense of general safety like this. Individually or as smaller groups, people have felt this. But all together, this is new. We are grieving on a micro and a macro level.

    Anticipatory grief is the mind going to the future and imagining the worst. To calm yourself, you want to come into the present. This will be familiar advice to anyone who has meditated or practiced mindfulness but people are always surprised at how prosaic this can be. You can name five things in the room. There’s a computer, a chair, a picture of the dog, an old rug, and a coffee mug. It’s that simple. Breathe. Realize that in the present moment, nothing you’ve anticipated has happened. In this moment, you’re okay. You have food. You are not sick. Use your senses and think about what they feel. The desk is hard. The blanket is soft. I can feel the breath coming into my nose. This really will work to dampen some of that pain.

    You can also think about how to let go of what you can’t control. What your neighbor is doing is out of your control. What is in your control is staying six feet away from them and washing your hands. Focus on that.

    … This is a temporary state. It helps to say it. I worked for 10 years in the hospital system. I’ve been trained for situations like this. I’ve also studied the 1918 flu pandemic. The precautions we’re taking are the right ones. History tells us that. This is survivable. We will survive. This is a time to overprotect but not overreact.

    I’ve been trying very hard to stick to my “usual” routines, especially when it comes to getting up. I’m staying awake later at night so I can wake Lancelot up, but I still get up around 4:30am. It’s a habit now.

    Sorry you have a headache still. I had one last week where I took Aleve finally in the evening but needed another dose the next day.
