I find that even without working outside the home full-time, there's just always so much to do that it gets really hard to find time for knitting. And don't get me wrong, I love sitting down for an hour or so in the evening and knitting, but that just doesn't always happen.
But last week H had her first parent-less swimming lesson ever (yay!) and so I was able to just sit. Sit! On a bench! By myself! And I managed to put a couple of rounds on a sock, which is very amazing to me. Everyone else was just wasting their time, twiddling their thumbs, looking at their phones, or, you know, watching their kids in the pool. Whatever! :P
The lesson was only half an hour, but it feels so hard-won when you're home with a preschooler all day, and even to get a couple of rounds done is amazing. A win for multitasking and fitting in time for the good stuff.
