Sick kids and knitting

September 30, 2007

You would think that having sick kids would be a perfect time to catch up on knitting since they won’t want to do anything but sit in front of the TV. But no! It is very difficult practically impossible to knit when you have to wipe a nose every 31 seconds, locate the Kleenex box every 2.3 minutes, get someone a drink every 4 minutes, clean up the spill of the aforementioned drink every 4.2 minutes, locate remote control so TV channel can be changed every 16 minutes, clean up barf every 2 hours, remember to feed every person and critter that requires feeding. and make at least one trip to the store to purchase the only food item on the planet that sick kid is willing to eat. Is it any wonder I only completed one row of Indigo Ripples? At this rate, I won’t finish it by this time next year. And I only have about 15 rows of the lace and the ruffle left. Fortunately, I was able to get a little knitting done yesterday because today has been a knitting washout. To add to my fun weekend. My hubby has been working out of town this weekend. When he came home today he was sick too. I made a different dinner for every member of the family. I sure hope they remember this when it is my turn to be sick.

Adrienne has a contest running on her blog for a skein of STR and a skein of Tofutsies. I am hoping that she will see this post and feel really sorry for me and send the yarn to me. If you go to her website and leave a comment that you saw this post she will give me brownie points. Don’t you think I deserve them after the day I have had. Please go to Adrienne’s website and leave a comment telling her how much you think I, I mean you, deserve her yarn. And please tell her that I sent you.

    hi tabitha

    you definitely sound like you should be a winner. fortunately for others, i am doing a random draw for both yarns. i would really have a hard time trying to pick a person otherwise.

    good luck! you, poor thing.

    You are going the contest as a RANDOM drawing. And I spent all that time trying to sound sympathetic. Thanks for visiting.

    No, no one will remember when you are sick. You’ll have to do everything for everyone. It’s in that invisible mommy contract that none of us remember seeing.
