We’ve talked about fears already so let’s talk about worries.
I try not to let things bother me and worry about them. The kidlets I nanny usually say “T don’t worry!” at least once a day. Mostly because they are playing too rough or sticking their hand half an inch from the iron to feel the heat radiating off of it or placing their hand on my freshly ironed shirt so they can feel the warmth from the fabric (I try not to iron when they are home but sometimes they come home halfway through). So I just turn to them and say “I can’t help it. I love you too much”
So yeah – I worry. But I think it’s just the maternal side kicking in. Dang those kids for bringing it out and making me love them! *shakes fist in fake anger*
Lately, I’ve been worrying about one thing in particular. Blankets.
I’ve started on this quest to knit or crochet a blanket for each of my kidlets. So I worry about that: can I actually finish 4 before Christmas? Yes, I can, but will I? Will I still be working here by Christmas? I hope the answer is yes.
I started the first blanket yesterday and I’m already 1/4 of the way done. But it’s crochet and an easy design that I literally just learned yesterday. But now I’m worrying if I bought enough yarn to make the blanket as long as I want it to be. And if I didn’t, if I go back and get another skein will it be the same dye lot to make the ombre look even? Or does that matter with this particular rainbow colour?
But it will all work itself out in the end.
Look out for posts as I finish up the blankets to see how pretty they look.
I’m also worrying about that one student downstairs. He flat out lied to me yesterday about going to school. I’m almost at my wits end with him. So I’ve stopped packing a lunch for him. Now he has to go to the main house and pick it up like he had to before Christmas. And guess what!! He went to school today. Well, I saw him walking down the road with his backpack. I’m not sure if that means he went all the way to school or not, but at least he’s out of the house for the first time since Thursday evening. And it’s even snowing right now so what could be better?! In all honesty, it’s probably slippery to walk in and he doesn’t like the snow and cold. He doesn’t get this much winter in Japan but dude it’s SNOW! It’s magical and beautiful!!!
