Knitting Makes Everything Better

I just started back knitting again today and I remember all the glorious things knitting does for me..... like calm my frantic nerves when it feels like everything is spinning out of control!!! which seems like my life these days. Calling on Jesus, reading fiction and knitting are all I can do to make that pounding in my chest quiet down and make my head feel like it's not about to pop. I had to rip back a couple (like 20) rows of my Hedera heel flap because I read the directions wrong...that always sucks. I knew something wasn't quiet right, but with knitterly denial I knitted onward! But I'm glad i did so now it looks like its suppose to look.

My fascinating Tuesday night will consist of doing my budget, doing Bible study, watching tv and knitting and maybe a little reading before I go to sleep. Pretty routine, I need to go buy the next two Harry Potter books: Year 4 and 5, so to distract me I've picked up "The Devil Wears Prada" by Lauren Weisberger. I've only read the first chapter but so far so good. I originally bought the book last year in October, I thought i would have a chance to read it when I got all four of my wisdom teeth pulled...but i didn't want to read, i just wanted to watch tv, sleep and moop.

I've decided that I'm starting 2008 now, meaning that I'm changing the way I do things now, instead of waiting until the first of the year to make some bullsheesh resolution that I won't follow through on. So, I've started my financial reform, I'm giving myself 3 years to get the majority of my debt paid off. I'm also gonna keep to my savings plan if it kills me and start investing this year.

YAY for starting 2008 early. I think I'll join you. Goodbye 2007, you've been one seriously tough year!

I'm so glad you're able to find calm in the things you love. I understand feeling like if you don't distract yourself, all the hurt and pain your pushing down, will rise to the surface.
