Things have been really stressful at Job #1. It's nothing serious, just a lot of projects, tight deadlines and sales reps who don't understand that - no I can't pull a 500 word story out of my butt in 2 minutes so you client can approve it because the deadline is in 5 minutes and you took your sweet ass time about selling the space.
One of my editors is bearing the brunt of it and was saying she needed something to take her mind off the chaos. Of course, I suggested knitting.
So, the lessons began yesterday:She's doing quite well... all that knitting after just two lunch breaks. What's she's making has changed several times from a scarf for herself, to a scarf for her boyfriend...but now she seems to have settled on a scarf for her Golden Doodle, Grace.
All in all, it worked out. Just look at the smile on her face. All I kept hearing this afternoon when we went back to work was "I don't want to work - I want to knit." And as I left today she was knitting - the presses were having issues to she had to wait around to send her publication out. But she was SMILING!
Now Dave hasn't been here all week, so I have to go do my own dishes... then it's off the bath, book and bed!
