Day Zero Project

Progress and Failure

Let’s start with the failure first, at least then the progress will seem more..  Progressive?  A while back I ticked off “Stop Biting My Nails” on my dayzero project list.  At the time, I think I’d gone over a month without nibbling my nails.  I know it is a bad habit.  I know I am too old to be doing this, but I still do.  Unconsciously.  I’ve been biting my nails ever since we went back home in December to visit family – and I keep telling myself that I’ll be able to quit again.  I’m sure I will be able to, but in the meantime, it doesn’t feel right to tick it off as “done”.  I must find another way to deal with stress.  Master has been helping me, because the vast majority of the time that I am biting my nails, I do not even realize my fingers are in my mouth and I am biting away.  Having someone else does help me in this regard.  At least I can call attention to it, and stop myself.  It’s harder when I’m alone though.

And now for some progress! :)  I’ve also been working on getting Master’s blanket crocheted. :)  I took a little hiatus from working on it for a bit because of wrist issues, but I’ve been really gung ho about it lately.  I’m going to finish it by Oct 1, 2012 – MARK MY WORDS!  Here is where my determination comes in to play.  I’ll finish this goal list on time, and my blanket isn’t going to stop me. :)  Here’s some pictures.

Here's a long shot of the blanket; it is longer than the couch! Don't forget: I did NOT choose anything to do with this blanket. Master chose the length, the amount of rows for each color, and he chooses each color too!

Another progress shot, a bit closer up, so you can see the colors better. :)

And of course, kitties prefer their blankets to be in a big messy pile, for maximum snuggling power. :)
