Sienna seemed a bit rough still but a bit more alert when I got home from work yesterday. She still wasn't eating or drinking and when I brought her downstairs she couldn't seem to control that back leg on slippery flooring (now I know why she was staying upstairs where the carpeting was).
Madeline and I administered her anti-inflammatory (a nice way to say we botched getting the pill down her twice but finally managed it with a minimum of choking). An hour later she showed up downstairs in the kitchen. This morning she tried to trip me going down the stairs when I was going to feed them. I am so relieved! Thanks everyone for the good thoughts.
Now...I need some advice. Last spring my mother asked me to knit her a funky afghan for the back of her couch.
I hate it. I hate the colour. I hate the yarns I chose. I hate knitting it. I have about ten inches knit and every single row feels like torture.
Still they say that you should knit something for someone that they want.
But...my parents are back after four months in Florida on the 5th of May and there is NO WAY I'm going to be close to done. And frankly, I'm very pouty about having to do this. I don't tend to knit for others to a deadline. I tend to knit what I like and give stuff away if its appropriate.
So...should I suck it up and knit the damn thing? How should I explain why its not done? Should I just tell her there's no way?
Finally - how do I manage all the associated guilt?
