So Tuesday I wound up feeling worse than I've felt in ages, depression-wise, undoubtedly in part because I didn't get to the gym. (The death didn't help, either.) Part of my funk was finding a rant on a knitting blog blasting the yarn I bought, although the post provided sources of better yarn, too.
Yesterday was a little better, although I still didn't get to the gym.
Today we're having lunch with another volunteer chaplain from the hospital, and then I have a long committee meeting at work. Tonight I'll probably try to catch up on some grading. I'm going to try to get in some laps before all of that.
Tomorrow I have to grade like crazy and work on my homily for Sunday. At least my schedule's open, though, so getting to the gym will be easier.
Saturday I go to the hospital, and grade in whatever time is left over. If I'm going to swim that day, I'll have to get to the gym at 8:00 a.m. Ooof!
Sunday I preach two services, go to the 4:00 animal blessing service, and grade in whatever time is left over. I have to get to the gym, too: Tuesday taught me that skipping that is not a good idea.
Meanwhile, the Lion yarn arrived yesterday, so I've started my first shawl. Four rows so far: wheeee! At this rate, I'll have it done in a year or so! The yarn's indeed somewhat difficult to work with, but I think it's pretty anyway. I'm going to knit up what I have (unfortunately, I ordered a lot of the stuff) and then switch to this yarn.
My friend Sharon will be my first shawl recipient. I hope she'll forgive me for not realizing before I ordered it that this yarn has a bad rep!
