I just don't know WHAT it is, but man- have I got the heebie-jeebies lately. I can't seem to settle into anything. And, on top of all that, when I was sick and coughing up lungs and a pancreas or two, I aggravated an old back injury. So now I am walking around like Lurch. (Doesn't that give you a pretty picture???) And I feel like Ruth Buzzi on a bad day. It's like I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. I just can't seem to get "into the groove". I tend to think it is a combination of January (one of my least favourite months) and pain issues (I also deal with a chronic knee problem) and maybe, the fact that I haven't been knitting. I am not kidding- with this back thing, I can't get comfortable knitting!!!! I swear I am like a little kid without the comfort of her blankie!!
Years ago, before I started knitting as much as I usually do now, I wouldn't have been able to fathom how much I would miss my quiet little times spent with some needles and a nice soft wool. But it truly DOES comfort me- gives me some time with my own thoughts while keeping my hands busy. And I miss it.
Hopefully tonight I can turn on some mindless TV (hmmm- was that a repetitive thing- isn't most TV mindless these days???), get out some knitting, and just gently ease myself back into the lull. I hat e to say it, but I feel like I am jonesing for some knitting!!!!!!!!!!
What about you? Are you feeling unsettled lately as well??? Got any suggestions for how to get out of it?
Well, on the good side-February is coming- both Annie and I have birthdays coming up.
I think a contest is in order. Let me think about it-and then go stash diving for something really nice........
