My apologies for my post yesterday. It was unnecessary and spiteful, and I am sorry for it. I can’t control the behavior of others, but I can control mine, or at least make the attempt, and I surely didn’t with that rant.
That’s it for now–I may post more later if I have something to say. Right now, I’m enjoying some sunshine, my coffee, and a bit of knitting before it’s time for mandatory family fun. Hat number 31 is nearly done–I’m aiming at finishing it up later today–and I’ve just cast on number 32 so I have a take-along, in case I have need of some soothing knitting later on. It’s good to be prepared.
A good Saturday to you!
ETA: The drive to and from MFF was not fun and induced a headache. MFF itself wasn’t completely awful. I tend to create a fictitious worst-case scenario before these events that is over-the-top awful so the real thing isn’t bad by contrast. I should probably not do that any more.
Aside from not making up a worst-case scenario, I came away with the following observations:
1. I will never trust directions as given by an 87-year-old again.
2. I will check Google maps for directions to unfamiliar locations.
3. I will never please my mother. It’s futile to try, though I do.
4. Some people just smell funny. Nothing to be done about it.
5. It’s kind of nice to have brothers, even though I think I was born to be an orphan.
6. Some heartaches will never, ever heal.
7. Sometimes, a PITA is worth it.
