Do you ever go through those periods when you just feel like you are failing at everything? That is how I have been feeling lately. I can't seem to finish up a project at work, I am not losing weight despite starting an exercise program and watching my diet, and my yarn stash is still completely out of control.
Two weeks ago I had my first dinner party in my new house. Now, I say new as I have only lived here for a little over 2 years. Yes, that is right--it has taken me 2 years to get my house in order enough to have people over. That and to find friends to have over, but that is another topic entirely.
I bring this up because that means 2 weeks ago my house was company ready. And part of the company cleaning was hiding away all those little items that become every day clutter. I left only 2 small baskets of yarn out on my shelves because like most fiber hoarders, I find it kind of decorative. And do you know what my guests said? Every last one commented "Gee, you sure have a lot of yarn!" And they saw only the tip of the iceberg.
