What isn't so amazing is how my body has been reacting to these storms. I've got arthritis so generally everything aches when we are going to have a storm. Mostly, I manage with the pain as it comes and goes with the weather issues. This last week though, I've had throbbing sinus issues every time a storm comes. Essentially the left side of my face feels like the pressure is going to make my head explode.
This makes it difficult to do anything - edit, crochet, talk, breath. I've been doing all the right things - eucalyptus, heating pad, tylenol, extra allergy meds. Still the pain is there and I deal.
What frustrates me most is I've still got four and a half rows on the afghan to finish. I've got all the yarn I need (finally) and all I need to do is sit and crochet. The problem is I can't because my head is going to explode.
I'm determined that this weekend those last rows will get done. I will have the afghan off my to do list and on my DONE (finally freaking done) list. It is gorgeous but I'm tired of working on it. I want to work on something else - anything else at this point.
Once that one is done I'll be able to look at the other three I have piled up behind it and start on one of them. I'll also be able to look at smaller projects to get done for holiday gifts. I have several things I want to experiment with - stitch sequences I want to try, patterns I want to try and there is always the colors and texture to consider too.
Before any of that fun can start, I have to just finish this one freaking afghan! It will be this weekend.
