Will someone please tell me where my week went?

Because I'd really like to know.

Wait - I know where it went - I want a do-over!

Monday I worked from bed because my back decided it wanted a day off. Of course, that doesn't mean I can take a day off.

Tuesday I worked a 14 hour day helping a colleague get some last minute uber urgent work done.

Wednesday it was a 10 hour day. And Dave emailed me about the stone chip he got in his window that morning from a passing truck. Of course by the time he'd made the appointment to get it fixed and went down to his car to get something - the cold had cracked it all the way through. $300 later he's got a new windshield.

Thursday wasn't as long, but it was still more than the 7.5 hours I'm suppose to work. And then when I get home, my dishwasher decides to commit suicide. Fortunately, I stopped it before it lit the house on fire. Dave found the problem - a melty wire. But it's currently in pieces taking up half my counter space until Dave has time to fix it. Since he's working all weekend - I suspect that will be Monday at the earliest.

AND - I haven't knit a stitch all week.

However - there is an upside of the week. My boss told me that if I even tried to come into work Friday, he'd boot me right out the door. So, I decided not to waste the gas trying, and instead Dave and I slept in until 11. Then I headed up to Mom's for a little Mommy-Daughter day. We had lunch, did some shopping, then came home and bothered my Dad for the evening.

So now it's the weekend and Dave's working both days. And that means - if I can get my house work done in a timely manner - I have hours and hours to do nothing but knit (and finish my coworker's shawl)!

But before I head off to do just that - I do have one small FO to show you.It's for Dave but I had to model it because he refused. Last Friday he announced that he'd lost his hat(yet another). So I took some time out last weekend to whip this one up in some Tabby Cat Worsted, for just such an occasion. Nothing fancy - just a ribbed brim and stocknit crown.

I finished it on Sunday and he absconded with it before I was able to take picture - I only got it off him again last night.

Oh and other other reason I had to model to get a decent shot....There was now way I was getting one without the Rockster.......seriously. No way.

My week has been a year long. I think I must have gotten part of yours by mistake...

I think it was just one of those weeks. I normally work a 20 hour week; this week was closer to 40 though I've claimed 30 and am holding the extra 10 for next week. Very little knitting here and it's school holidays, at least there's only one more week of those to come.

It must be the week for bad weeks. Mine was the pits too. It is almost Saturday night and I have yet to just sit and knit this week. I pick up the needles and as soon as I do it's one catastrophe after another. I am going to be very cranky about it soon.
Dave is very lucky btw. I stopped knitting for The Mister long ago because he either lost everything or tore it up. Men.

Boy, such weeks just should not happen. A do-over would be nice. I like the hat, and its color.

Busy busy but what a wonderful mom and daughter day you had!! A nice reward for the week. Your so quick with your knits....great hat!! Cute cat too ;)

If the hat has been approved by Rocky *and* Dave, it's definitely a hit! (And easy to see why, it looks very cozy.) Hopefully this will be a much better week!
