Reality Check Cashed

Hmmm.... Oscar reads my blog. He asked me some kind and pertinent questions yesterday which can be summed up pretty much as "Are you insane?"
You see, I have a tendency to get the bit between my teeth and ride roughshod over my health. It is such a great feeling to accomplish something that I tend to add more and more somethings to the list until I get overwhelmed.
Not very wise, especially as it has happened over and over again since he met me, and even more often BEFORE he met me.
So I am going to do what I can, but take the pressure off accomplishing it all before Sunday.
It will feel wonderful to have my obligations done, but not if I end up sick again.
It is good to have a wise husband, and even better now that I have started listening to him!
So, I will see what I finish, but not go nuts trying to finish everything.

Diana I can relate. I have fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and know what it is like to want to get something or somethings done, but end up getting sick. I know how frustrating it is to want to do something and being limited by your body. I love your patterns, keep them coming but don't get sick.

a wise husband is a very rare thing! although we all knew he was wise, because he was smart enough to catch you!
isn't it lovely that our knitting is actually good for us physically, too? ;-)

Oscar said what I was thinking. Well, more "Are you mad, woman?" Personally I tend to operate on the "Why put off until tomorrow that which can be put off until the day after tomorrow" principle. You're ambitious making a list just be kindly flexible with your self-imposed deadlines. And don't skip recess (twice a day!)
