She isn’t harassed. She’s busy, and it’s glamorous to be busy. Indeed, the image of the on-the-go working mother is very like the glamorous image of the busy top executive. Arlie Hochschild The Second Shift

I have news for dear Arlie, there’s nothing glamorous about being so busy that your head spins. That’s what I’ve been all this week: too busy — too busy to even be busy. Very little knitting has gone on and so the Autumn Lace Sock pattern is still not ready.

My poor baby girl, a pointer labrador mix, Dakota, needs an operation to remove a large lump. I love her to pieces and am just sick over this operation. Too boot, the vet is now treating her for hypothyroidism. I’m not crazy about taking medication myself and I always have grave reservations about giving my pets medications. But the vet says she needs the soloxine. I read up on the med and hypothyroidism in dogs on the net. Dakota doesn’t show any of the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Yet the vet said her blood test showed hypothyroidism. I’m real uncomfortable with this.

I hope to get knitting done on the Autumn Lace Sock this weekend. In the meantime, I have a box full of hats I crocheted last winter. I am going to go through them, take pictures and put some of them up for sale in my Etsy store Avalon’s Dream. The link to my store is here and on the sidebar. I hope to post one or two for sale over the weekend.

Tonight I think I’ll just sit and love my 2 pups.
