My two cats, Georgie (the black) and Misha (the longhair) love to watch the birds just outside the window. Somedays, they get so excited that they forget they are behind a window and they run full tilt and the window and crash into it. I used to laugh at this behavior, but more and more, I am finding myself smashing into the window (metaphorically).
Last night, my efficiency got the better of me. I turned on the laundry, helped my daughter study for her science test by reading questions from the study sheet and picked up my purse to start knitting. For a whole row I am humming to myself,"I am so efficient, I am so efficient, I am so efficient...." and then I smack into the glass, as I realize that I am knitting with mulberry instead of charcoal EEEKKKKK!!!!!!! The question of the day is - did I learn anything from this? Well you be the judge, but I was frogging that row back and reading the science questions at the same time, so I would say probably not.
