I haven't been able to complete a row in 3 days, and this senseless violence at Virginia Tech doesn't help. Been crying since I heard full details about it since yesterday afternoon -- first news I got was @ 10:16 am while making the store's bank deposit. I almost fell over when I heard about the first shooting, and haven't stopped crying since getting details about the Norris Hall massacre. I was depressed when I heard about the guy who jumped off the Empire State Building on Friday afternoon, and only his leg had made it to the sidewalk below. I don't even know why I'm so upset because I don't know any of these people except that it is making me sad to even imagine the evil, turmoil and violence that is brewing outside my 4 walls. (Other than the Leech and her crappy "writing" project, but that's a whole other can of worms that I care not to re-open)
Blew out my knee yesterday while doing stuff at work and that's not making me happy, because I'm fine only when I stand in one place for a short period of time, or don't have to walk or get up from a sitting position...but what do I do all day? Stand and walk around and if I sit down to rest my working leg/take pressure off the injured leg then I have to get up.
So I was hoping to complete my sweater today, but I just picked up my WIP and couldn't do anything but stare at it. It's dinnertime, and I'm hungry but it's more work that I want to put into to go eat something for dinner. And tomorrow I have to go walk around Annapolis for work-related tasking, then finish my day at the store. And no, I cannot take time off because there is so much work to be done.
My one day off this week is a road trip to NJ but I must be back in time for work on Sat. morning.
I almost bought a supply of yarn - more Twinkle Soft Chunky - and another Lexie bag, but I stopped myself because this iwould be depression shopping, and for all the wrong reasons, so I reined myself back on the reservation for now and will see how I feel after I get back from NJ. No time to visit NY/NJ knittyheads - sorry - but maybe I will see you at MD S&W.
*pets a ball of KSH for inspiration*
Thanks for letting me bitch and vent.
Got any sushi or pho?
