To knit or to clean?

Been plowing away on the lil ole Forest canopy shawl. For some reason I'm getting arm cramps.
Arm cramps from knitting? I must be hopelessly out of shape.

Took himself to the airport this morning....Ahhhhhhhh.
I tell ya, I had no idea there was a 'slow season' in his line of work. Having him home for 6 straight weeks really threw a monkey wrench in all the habits and routines we were just getting used to. I don't understand why, but I am the laziest creature when he is around. When he is gone, the house is clean clean, like dust free, all laundry is washed/dried/put up within 24 hours of it being worn. The vacuum cleaner cries for mercy and even with 5 kids, I manage to keep the kitchen and living room clutter free. When he is here....not so much.
Like take tonight. We moved Bible study to Tuesday nights to help with some peoples schedules, and my Lost watching (hehehehe). I popped him on the plane, returned home only to discover that I have a heck of a lot of cleaning to catch up on before I have company over tonight. The pantry is pretty bare too. *sigh*

I foresee not having much knitting time today....ahhh well, at least he is working again.

When they're home it's so much nicer to spend time with them and leave the chores for later. Always better to spend extra time with loved ones when you can. :-)

I understand how you feel. Just on a lesser scale. :)

I am not at fault for this, really. I have yet to see proof of this so called cleaning epidemic that occurs while I'm away. methinks it's an urban legend. Maybe Jamie and Adam can take that up on an upcoming Mythbusters show.
