  I'm feeling cranky right now. (<---- can you see the cats & birds in this pic?)

WHy is it that I work 60 hrs a week and then when I finally have a day off, all I want to do is sleep and eat, knit a little... but then I get pissed off because I didn't do anything I would consider "productive"? I also love to shop, but not with other people. Seriously. I figured that out today when John & I went to Target & to get some groceries that I realized that I hate shopping with other people. Not because I'm anti-social, because I'm not. It's because I prefer to amble and browse the shelves & racks at my own pace, and not have to worry about where my friend/husband/other person is. Or to have them say "hurry up, keep up with the group" or something equally grrrrrr. I thought about the last time I went shopping with friends, and realized that I didn't have a good time or I bought stuff I didn't really want. ANd - they were impatient b/c I wanted to go look at things that they weren't interested in. (sporting goods, MAC counter, books) It wasn't that I didn't enjoy the company, I just like to take my time and shop at my own pace and mode of attitude. The last time I went shopping with my older sister - this was back in high school - I wanted to stomp on her b/c she said I needed to cover my fat ass and to stop picking everything black or purple. (I wasn't fat in high school - was about 135 lbs but thicker b/c I played lots of sports - but compared to my 85-lb twig sisters, I was a beast) My mother was a little kinder the last time we went to the mall last year, but she's tiny and was upset I was such a tomboy back then and a busty sea wench now, so she had her running commentary the whole time I was in the dressing room. So these days, I just really really prefer to shop alone.

On a more positive note, I received very beautiful stitch markers from someone in No. Hollywood, CA (THANK YOU!) as part of the Oct. Stitch Marker Swap - will have to do a monster photo shoot once I get my camera situation straightened out.

Enough of my bitching for now. I'm sure I'll have plenty more to whine about later this week LOL

Much love to you,

PS - if you survive the sheer crankyness of this post, please make a comment to give me something to chuckle about later, while I check my email LOL

Uhm, last time I checked sleeping, eating and knitting were all considered PRODUCTIVE! Give yourself a break, eh?!? I'm with you on the shopping thing. What my friend I like to do is agree to shop for X # of hours (or minutes) and then meet back, compare purchases, then shop more. We keep doing it until it's time to break for lunch...or dinner...or a cocktail! And I'm with you on the MAC shopping anytime. 'Cause I need another lipstick like I need more rice.
No, Roxy... much love to you! :)
I am totally with you about feeling like I "wasted" my day off if I don't do something "productive" (i.e., something horrible, like cleaning the house, grocery shopping, finish peeling wallpaper in the room we're re-doing).

I try to choose one "productive" thing to accomplish, then enjoy the rest of the day off. It doesn't need to be a big thing—maybe just writing a thank you note or calling grandma. Then I can be lazy and knit all day and watch movies, guilt-free.
