That ain't bad...

Life is full of decisions.  

Some decisions are easy, like Chocolate or Broccoli.

Some decisions require a little more thought, like "paper or plastic" for your groceries.

And some decisions are very difficult, requiring weeks of whether to get a Nook or a Kindle!

I'm not sure which category today's decision should fall into. . .I mean, at the outset, it looks like it should be a no-brainer. . .then I start thinking. . .then I remember why I hate to make decisions!!!

Well, here. . .let me show you.  This is my desk, without me. . . 
I spend 40 hours each week at, or near, my desk.  Without me, it looks lonely and sad. . .but look at this:

This is my Sofa, without me. . .
I probably spend 30-35 hours a week on, or near, my sofa.  It looks pretty lonely and sad without me, too!  But wait, there's more.

This is my current knitting. . .
I would estimate that I spend 20-25 hours a week knitting. . .most of that happens on my sofa (and some of that time might-or-might-not be at, or near, my desk. . .believe what you will about that).

So, what's the big decision?  Well, here it is. . .

Every Friday afternoon, when I leave my desk, I agonize a little about the things that I didn't get done.  It seems that there is always at least one. . .sometimes I even consider going back on Saturday to finish up, even though the "great, unfinished things" will surely wait until Monday. . .so, can I just let myself off the hook, and try again next week OR will I wonder and worry, all through the weekend, that I am not worthy of my great job.  My perfectionist self says that my sofa and my knitting will understand if I stay later at the office to finish up on Friday (and other days occasionally), right?  

However, my inner weekender says,  "NOT!!!"  Besides, if I make my Sofa and my Knitting happy, that's 2 outta 3. . .and I hear that 2 outta 3 ain't bad!

I hope that you are making your sofa and your knitting happy this weekend, and that you are Knitting in Good Health!
