Sugar here. I have not been feeling super about a) not getting the job/promotion I applied for at my office and b) now having to work under the person I competed against and c) not being able to just f-ing quit. Obviously now is the time to do lots of craft projects, which usually make me feel a lot better. I knitted fingerless gloves for myself, mittens for the bean (which he won’t try on, but I know once it’s freezing out he will wear) and started a fair isle pattern hat. Also, and this is the exciting part, I decided that I was never going to have time to make the sofa cover we desperately need while the bean was asleep. So…I just made it while he “helped.” I actually showed him how to use pins and he did indeed help me pin my pattern to the fabric. This was slower than me doing it myself, but WAY faster than trying to put him off while I did a thing he wasn’t allowed to do.
Those tulips, by the way, are a result of the Bean’s habit of saying “I just want a flower to make me happy…” whenever he is tired or sad. Bionic got him some the last time she went shopping.
