One Thing A Day

This is what I've decided. I can only do one thing a day. Otherwise I need too much time to recoup! I did my grocery shopping yesterday and it about killed me! I had to have my husband come home for lunch and unload the bags and have the boys empty them. Then I took a 2 hour nap! When I woke up I thought about cleaning but that's all it was...a thought! That's why I called someone to come and help me clean my house! Now, this was very hard for me. The thought of someone cleaning while I watch them kind (even if I'm paying them)of makes me feel like a slacker or something. I know, I know, it shouldn't. But I have a habit of feeling guilty if I'm just sitting and other people are doing stuff. I'm sure I'll get over it though ;o)

This whole one thing at a time philosophy doesn't carry over into my knitting though. I have 3 projects going on, although I'm paying the most attention to the stars and hearts blanket out of the Adorable Knits for Tots book. I have some sweaters going on as well, but I figured since this kid is coming in the beginning of July a blanket is more practical than a sweater! I got a lot done on the blanket this weekend while visiting my family. It's easy to knit when you don't have to cook, clean, do laundry, and while the kids are occupied by the grandparents :o) Now that I'm back in the real world it's a little more difficult, I haven't knit since Sunday but I'm going to do a little when I'm done on here.

Maryland Sheep and Wool was fun. I needed an entire day to recouperate from all that walking, but it was a great way to spend Mother's Day. I'm glad I didn't try to go on Saturday because I heard it was mobbed. I didn't spend a whole lot of money, it was a little overwhelming. So much to see, and I didn't really *need* anything. What I DID need was some of that funnel cake and BOY was it good. I can't even think about it because I'll want some!

I promise I'll try to do blog updates more often. It's just that whenever I sit down I fall asleep! LOL! I swear I don't remember being this tired this early with my other two. I wouldn't be surprised if this one decides that June is a better month to be born than July!
