The Un-Vacation

The yarn for Giant Super Secret Knitting version 2 showed up yesterday. And after having a major freak out about finishing things, it became apparent that the only way to solve a multitude of problems was to cancel every commitment I have made. Including the fun ones. Luckily most everyone was ok with it. Anyways, this is my long-winded way of saying that I am giving myself permission not to post anything on my blog for a month. In fact, the only things I am giving myself permission to do is 1. Go to work, 2. Work on the Giant Super Secret Knitting, 3. Work on camp stuff, and 4. Cuddle with Scooter. Everything else has been canceled due to sanity reasons.

By my calculations, the secret knitting/pattern writing, which has a hard deadline, is going to take over 100 hours to finish. I'm also in charge of creating crafts for: 2 weeks x 90 campers each week x 5 days of crafts each week. Although I only need to prep for around 25 campers a day since crafts is during free time and the pool is open. Lots of kids like the pool. All these things have to be done in about a month.
This isn't to say I might not pop on if I have something to share, but I thought I'd let you guys all know not to worry if you don't hear from me for a bit. I'm having an un-vacation.

Im so jealous of your ability to make yourself let go of all of that stress. I cannot let things go ever, even when they are stressing me out too much. I think that this will be a good experience for you. I'll miss reading about you adventures for a little while, but I'm excited to see what you do once you recharge a bit. Good luck!!!!!
