And I really noticed it this past weekend during my trip to Myrtle Beach.
For instance, it has taught me how to hold my tongue. Instead of me reacting immediately like I normally do, I just focus on my stitches :o)
*If we got turned around/lost during the trip....no problem that is more time for me to work on my project! Besides I just want to do one more row!
*What? There is a 30 minute wait on our table. No worries! I will whip out my WIP!
*Dang! There is an accident on a 2 lane highway and traffic is stopped in both directions. Oh well I will just keep clicking my needles!
It really didn't dawn on me until that very last incident during the trip, that normally I would have been "I.L.L." at being delayed going back home about 45 minutes! Because you know when you are ready to come home you are ready!
Nope, didn't bother me at all! And then it hit me! It has got to be the knitting!
I swear that:And it is TRUE!! I have PROOF! All of the girls came back in one piece! (b/c I swear there were a couple I was on the verge of.....) LOL :op
You know all of that stuff you hear about how knitting is:
~ A stress reliever
~It relaxes you
~Is the "new" yoga
It's ALL true!!!! It really is TRUE!!
Good stuff there! I found the magic! :oD
About my trip to the beach, let me just clarify why I am fully clothed! :op LOL (BTW - I swear I live vicariously thru my MEEZ doll! I dream of having a shape like that! LOL But I do have the belly ring though! haha!)
Day 1 was actually a dreary (overcast with light rain here and there) and cool day (70s) so we were definitely not thinking about swimsuits! All of the indoor activities ended up being perfect even though we still ventured down by the ocean.
Day 2 was muuuuch better and ended up hot/sunny with me having a slight sunburn and resulting in me turning at least 3 shades darker! LOL But by then I was over the whole beach thing. It was much busier on this day. Folks every.where!
Plus, when I did get up to "dip" my toes in the water this little 2 year old boy about two feet away from me hurls pink projectile into the ocean!!! EWWWWWWW I was d.o.n.e and promptly went back to sit on my beach towel!! (I kinda felt bad for him, but then was still disgusted!).
Well I gotta show y'all one more thing I saw on my trip at the Ripley's museum:

Can you believe that!! No extra-marital sex or homosexuality!! Next to none! Zelch! And wardrobes of them!
What really got me was the very LAST sentence!! COME ON!!! You GOTTA be kidding me!!!
Wow! Is all I could say and snapped the picture! Hahaha! :oD
