What kind of rubs me the wrong way is that for the last few days is that I have been crocheting until I got cramps in neck and my fingers were stiff in order to finish the BaqBaq blanket I had been working on for Layton. The obsessive-compulsive in me decided it had to be done last minute. And everyone showed up at my parents house when I was 5 minutes away from having it done.
I did take it out of the sack to take a photo of it and show Mom from across the room that I had finished it. I said, "I have to take a picture because I said on my blog I would."
I'm reminding myself that approval is nice to have, but no one owes it to me. I don't have to let approval or acceptance or appreciation be an idol. I'm not mad about it, and I'm not saying that no one liked it, I just expected a little more reaction.
I really need to end this post now. Those three Christmas trees that I put up for some unknown reason aren't taking down themselves. My goal is to have them down tonight!
