Venting

Sorry, no pictures today. I’m just venting. I have nothing to show because I have had almost no time to knit since work is sucking our life away at the moment. I know it’s only temporary but every time we go through it, it seem like an eternity. My husband is working the “insane” hours while I’m doing the only “very heavy” hours since I’m taking care of the kids most times. That’s okay; I’d rather have it that way. That’s the only reason I managed to get any knitting done yesterday and it felt so good. That and that I bought some International Delight Southern Butter Pecan to go in my coffee – mmmm, flavoured coffee and knitting.

At the end of this coming week, hubby has to go away on a course for two days. He’s extending it to a third day since he’s never visited this place before. As a result, I’m also going to miss my yoga class which is my only other stress outlet aside from knitting. My other crafts and hobbies don’t provide me with the same de-stressing ability, not that I’ve had time to touch them anyway. I always say I’m grumpier when I haven’t had time to knit, can you imagine me by the end of Saturday?

I’m drinking a glass of red wine and watching the third Lord of the Rings movie while I do this; it helps. Any time I’ve not blogged for a while, the sole cause is work. I’ve always been afraid of venting on my blog because I was afraid some of the people I work with might discover my complaints. Oh well, I guess I'm past caring (to a certain extent). I just had to vent.
