I was tagged by KnitNZu for a meme!! Finally got it finished…you wouldn’t think 7 things would be so hard to think of, now would ya?

7 things to do before I die

  1. Finish knitting a friggin adult-size sweater.
  2. Go on a Cruise.
  3. Conquer the perfectionism that dogs me and keeps me from being all I want to be.
  4. Kick the procrastination habit.
  5. Learn to play a musical instrument.
  6. Learn to paint with watercolor.
  7. Make a quilt for my bed – and finish it.

7 things I cannot do

  1. Read music
  2. Organize anything, including myself.
  3. Read a map.
  4. Motivate myself. (I’m VERY good at motivating others, however).
  5. Think of a good retort when I’m “in the moment.” Later, I can think of many things “I could have said”.
  6. Eat just one Hershey’s kiss.
  7. Accept praise or compliments without cringing. Working on that…

7 blogs to tag

I’m cheating here…if you’d like to do the meme, consider yourself tagged!

Let’s not talk about how many times I’ve made foolish errors in the RPM sock…suffice to say, it’s been ripped a time or two or three. Almost done with the gusset…whew. Precious little knitting is going on…I’m sponsoring a huge bellydance event – for which I’m poorly prepared, lol – and that has taken the majority of my so-called free time.

Next week….hopefully reality and routine will return and we’ll have pictures! We can hope at least… 🙂
