We had a rough day here yesterday, and since Kim was finished, I figured I should start my next monster as a nice distraction. This worked for a while, before my attention was needed elsewhere. I didn't get back to it, because by the time I sat down again, my brains were doing 90 miles an hour. I decided that television (as bad as it is) sometimes is the only distraction that slows the brains down.

Today is already leaps and bounds better. I can think at a normal speed again, and I'm looking forward to spending some alone time with the old crochet hook. I tend to only use one hook for most projects... so it's kind of special to me. Me and my D hook... Is that weird? Any other hookers out there do that?

Yesterday's troubles with Kiddo made this sketch happen. It was therapeutic to get that out, but also kind of heart wrenching at the same time. It's hard to see your kids going through something that causes them so much pain.

I've been trying to keep the idea that in order to really live your life, you have to feel every part of it... even the this-totally-sucks parts. Those are the parts (apparently) that make the amazing parts feel really amazing. That's what I'm going with anyway.
