Hello, it's Monday. It's November. Daylight savings time has officially kicked in, and with it my annual holiday freak out.
I'm not knitting Christmas gifts this year. I'm not! Except for the seven that I haven't started yet. Seven is actually a lot more than zero, I guess, if you really think about it. Thinking about it is where I draw the line.
Thinking about things leads to thinking about more things, which leads to a big, fat anxiety spiral. But that's another topic.
The Christmas knitting involves things I really do want to make, so I'm looking forward to that. Just not the rest of it.
Every time I try and let things go, I end up feeling twice as worthless because of all the things I could have done but didn't. So that's not the answer.
Maybe this will help. I printed the checklists, forms, and countdowns on this site, and put them in a neat little binder. The more tasks I check off, the more sane I feel. So maybe that's a good thing.
