Stolen hour

This evening, I found myself with an unscheduled hour. The kids had Junior Nature Club with my mother, and my Sweetie was hunting after work. (yes, it is that time of year again.)   All day, I pondered my options. I could stay late at the office and attack the pile on my desk. I could get a decent workout. I could give myself a mani/pedi. I could clean the kitchen and vacuum the living room. I could relax, watch an hour of uninterrupted TV and knit.

I ended up watching the Season Finale of Home Fires and worked on the Christmas teacher mitts. I have barely knit at all in the past two weeks. I only have about four weeks to finish three more mitts. I wasn't lollygagging. These mitts have to be done before Christmas vacation. Doodlebug was asking just the other day when I was going to start working on the mitts for HIS teacher. Really, I will get both pairs fine in time. It is nothing against him that I started Bugaboo's teacher's mitt first. 

Today, it is all about the remembered deadlines.
