The sky's the limit!

At least that's what I'm telling myself.  It's Friday and I have just finished with one of my worst ego-slamming weeks in my life.  At work, I've had two three parties to a guardianship to adoption with a dispute that seemed unsolvable, then today arrived at what I thought was the correct time to court only to have the master lambast me and about three social workers for not being ready 1/2 hour before the time we've always had to be there in the past.  Lesson learned, but when stuff like that happens, I always feel like garbage, serious garbage.  Luckily the adoption case
 worked out well:) And really, that's what's important.  My personal life: well that requires some work and organization on my part.  I did give the shawl to the recipient for a birthday gift a couple of days in advance, first, because she didn't want gifts at her party and I didn't want to be the sh*thead who brought the only gift to a party (that's just rotten), and I knew she was going out with her husband tonight, so last night was the only time before the big day that I could give it to her.  I think I did a rather good job on the shawl, and, sadly, perhaps selfishly, I do get a charge when someone enjoys what I knit for them, but that satisfaction was not to be.  Oh well, it's her gift, not mine, LOL:)
But that does mean, I now have another UFO which is now an FO:) Kewl.  But, after frogging a few projects with which I knew I had fallen out of love, I still have 24 more UFOs in waiting. 

So really, do I have the right to lust after a new project?  A lace project maybe?  These are calling me: Aren't they lovely? (sigh.
..)
But NO! I will wait.  I will finish those UFOs, to wit (In alpha order):

Wow -  I'm tired already.  As you can see from this:
That baby blanket is not getting knitted by itself, so I'd better get cracking.  The little person is due in October:) and I'd like to have some things on the ready.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I'm going to try to get to the morning sip 'n knit (or do some housework - hey there's an idea!).  Then, in the afternoon, I have a rehearsal for the Passion reading.  After that, I'm going to Connie's big birthday bash for an hour or so then on to Nancy's at Diane's (hoping to catch the movie with everyone - they're watching Amadeus!) for another hour or so.  
Sunday is a long morning ringing, reading and singing.  I'm already tired, LOL! Well knit on as they say! Maybe I'll bring some knitting along for the 'down' times HAH!
Oh well, have a great weekend, dear readers and I will be back soon, until then, God be with you 'til we meet again!
