I’m a workaholic. It’s less noticeable because most of what I do is a hobby to everyone else, and because I love it so much I don’t constantly complain about my 16 hour days. But I wake up early, I work all day, and then I go to sleep. I get excited for the weekends because that means I get to work even more.
It’s important to have hobbies, and as ridiculous as it is for me to say, I need to take a break from the knitting a spend some time doing other things I love.
It’s not like I don’t have a million crafty project lined up, like I’m sure all of you do! I bookmark crafty projects till my heart content. But just like if I were a lawyer or doctor or salesman, I can’t stop working long enough to pick up any of these projects.
But I recognize that I need a break. As I’m sitting here typing I’m wearing wrist supports because not only am I having wrist pain from knitting, I’m having wrist pain from typing.
The Sweatshop of Love has been too much sweatshop and not enough love lately, and I’m using crafts to fix that.
So I hereby declare next week HOBBY WEEK! No knitting. No work. Just crafts. Sewing and embroidery; playing with fabric and floss and hot glue guns. It’s going to be glorious.
I’ll be documenting my hobby-ing daily. Short posts with little typing and lots of fun, crafty pictures.
HOBBIES! What a revolutionary idea!
