"Oh, that's just your body getting ready for the sleepless nights ahead."
I don't get it. Wouldn't getting ready for no sleep involve sleeping MORE so you are well rested? I guess I understand the theory. You have to build up a tolerance to sleep deprivation. I just wish it didn't come at the cost of my sanity. I just bit poor H's head off earlier. He wanted to know if I wanted steak for dinner tomorrow. Well...how am I supposed to know if I want steak for dinner?? It's not tomorrow yet. I don't know how I'll feel tomorrow. He was being so kind, too. Offering to cook dinner so I don't have to.
Pretty sure the heartburn will kill me if the insomnia doesn't. I wonder if it's possible to overdose on Tums?
In knitting news, I'm kinda feeling down and having a slightly less than awesome week. My book proposal was rejected. But alas, I will not take no for an answer!!! I will work on it some more, flesh out a few more details, write a few more patterns, explain the proposal better and resubmit. New deadline is December 1st. Maybe January 1st. We'll have to see how life works.
In the meantime, it could be a blessing in disguise. I have to get the last of my patterns done for Little Seasonals. They are done, but the samples need to be finished. I also need to finish my sample for the Gentleman's Argyle Vest I started much earlier this year. Again, the pattern is done, but the sample is not. I might hand off the yarn and pattern and 1/4-done sample to a friend to help me finish it. I have discovered I do not like intarsia at ALL! It's so pretty when done, but I do not like the process. I like fair isle. I do not like intarsia. Cables and intarsia together are beautifully complicated. Cables and intarsia with pregnant-brain are a mind-breaking combination. Cables and intarsia combined with pregnant-brain and sleep-deprivation is a recipe for disaster...or possibly the looney bin. But I have got to get this done. It has taken me much too long!
Sadly, I suspect I don't have enough yarn for the entire project. I hope I am wrong.
I wonder if I'll manage to finish my nephew's sweater before Christmas? Or my mother's sweater? Those are the only two personal projects on the go right now. I want to knit. I want to sleep more!
