I went to the doctor this afternoon. He thinks I have some tendonitis. Nothing that a little break and some ibuprofen can't fix. I sat in his office and told him that if he had said I should stop knitting permanently that he could find me on the bridge.
So, I've been compiling a list of things to do during my hiatus from yarn.
1. Wash the dishes after each meal.
2. Make real suppers for a week (more veggies, less PB)
3. Paint my fingernails.
4. Paint my toenails.
5. Read lots of books.
6. Read lots of blogs.
7. Take more bubble baths.
8. Tidy the basement
9. Um... type less (sorry)
10. Dust the entire house (wow, it's been while)
11. Vaccuum thoroughly.
12. Mop the floors.
13. Really clean those baseboards.
14. Look longingly at each and every ball of yarn in my stash.
15. Look at seed catalogues and plan my garden.
16. Iron my undies, (I've never done this before, but I'm sure there must be a benefit).
17. Floss every day, before and after each meal.
18. Obsess over my roots.
19. Pluck my eyebrows - well, mow, really, they need some work... Hey, I wonder what I'd look like without eyebrows.
20. Try on my wedding dress.
21. Realize that I don't fit in my wedding dress anymore and eat all that Ben & Jerry's in the freezer.
22. Count and categorize all of my moles (this should take some time - I'm pretty moley).
23. Wonder where that twitch came from under my eye...
This is only the third day without yarn... I'm pretty sure that Andrew will come home Saturday to find me weeping on the couch wearing an ill fitting wedding gown, surrounded by an empty ice cream container, tweezers, a mirror, various manicure tools, household cleaners, and an empty box of chocolates.
