… although I thought I was going to have to call my friend Caitlin to get a reminder on how to do it. I haven’t had time to do anything on it since October or so! But while on vacation I went through my yarn stash and paired up 24 skeins of sock yarn into sets of two-like-colors, with the plan of weaving one scarf per month. Hopefully that will even happen. I think if I warp it the same day I take something off it, that’ll keep me going. I’ve been wanting to warp it for a while but only ever think of it at, like, ten in the morning, before the day explodes… and since it takes two to do the last stage, I’d have to wait for Tim to come home, and I hate to interrupt his lunch so it would have to be in the evening, and there’s not really any place the loom can stand, with yarn strung out across half the house, and not be in the way. LONGEST RUN-ON SENTENCE EVER.
Yesterday I got my sales tax for Q4 all done; it took me most of the day because I have such math anxiety you wouldn’t believe — I mean, I even have a spreadsheet I type everything into, that does the work for me. But my anxiety is so severe that even between flipping from one tab to the next I can transpose the numbers I just told myself that I have to write down, and that’s where problems happen. So then. That probably explains the headache I had for most of the day yesterday. That and the weird dead balloon smell of my new office chair. I swear, it smells like roadkill plastic. I’ve sprayed it with Lysol, Febreeze, and had incense going for most of the day, and still, ick. But I do love the new chair! It rolls! The wheel doesn’t fall off! It’s got lumbar support! It’s the right height! All of those things cancel out my being weirded out by the odd smell. (Of course I say that now but if I wake up in a couple days with a third arm growing from some sort of plastic/rubber poisoning….?)
Alright, folks, I got stuff to do. I can’t sit here and let myself get distracted by the Internets all morning. Only until the end of this cup of coffee, which is coming up soon.
