All Better Now, Except for Mysteriously Ouchy Swollen Hands.

Even though I usually have this really strict Never Delete Posts principle when it comes to online journally stuff, I decided to take down my freaking-out post from last night, because I like to keep all my angst over at my LiveJournal. I don't mind people knowing I take care of my mom, or that she has early-onset Alzheimer's, or even that there are definite ups and downs to the whole situation, but I kind of want to keep the majority of my posts in *this* blog at least vaguely knitting-related.

That said, I'm feeling much, much better today, and I'm realizing that being overtired, having PMS, and caregiving are an iffy combination at the best of times. :)

The only thing is, I did lots and lots of housecleaning last night -- clearing out cupboards that I don't think have even been *opened* for years -- and obviously I've been doing lots of Kool-Aid dyeing-stuff, and winding up balls of yarn by hand, so now my hands are all... ouchy.

So that's annoying, because I shall be impeded in my knitting!

Plus, my fingers are all weird colors from the Kool-Aid staining but I'm afraid trying to scrub at them or use nail polish remover or anything.

Ah, well.

Off to do non-knitting-type stuff, and then print out the Hallowig pattern (and directions to the new coffee house knitting group is at tonight), and then ponder the question of whether or not I really do want to have a red Hallowig, or whether red is going to be less Sydney-from-Alias and more Raggedy Ann, so maybe I should just go with using the hot pink yarn I bought ages ago?

Oh, the agony of choice!

[ Edit: Oh hell, and I have the rest of the Kool-Aid yarn photos to format and put up. I keep avoiding forgetting to do that. ]
