Two of my closes friends will give birth within the next 3-4 weeks, another friend just told us that she'll be having the second baby in febuary, which is when I will be off of medication. I'm a little cranky today for various reasons and I nearly cried. I'm totally happy for all of my friends, some of them had to try very hard to get a baby and they will be awesome parents or are awesome parents but today that was too much. There are days when live just feels unfair.
I know, that I should be gratefull for having healthy nieces, nephews and godchildren and I am in 99,9% but today I'm cranky. I'll be o.k. tomorrow and gratefull but today I'm not. TOmorrow I will feel happy for all of my friends without having to cry. Tomorrow I will plan more handknitted and handsewn gifts (no quilts though) for the babies to come because that is all I can do (plus changing nappies like I did today with my oooh so cute godchild! It was a blessing that she was there and baby Max, so I could get my dose of baby and cuddling today. Otherwise my cat would be cuddled to exhaustion tonight...)
Maybe it's that I can't knit at them moment what makes live harder too. My arm hurts ( I told you, I'm pounting!) and I don't think it's too wise to knit much. I swatched a bit though. And if life gives you lemons: make lemonade!
6 blocks of the quilt of doom got done this weekend. So the total is 55 blocks done, 233 to go! I hope to be at 65 blocks next weekend!
