Yes, that's me. Bored Stiff! I am really lost while Ellie is away getting fixed. I am feeling good today, so I need to be "doing" something.
I have so much I WANT to do right now and without her I am at a standstill. I keep telling myself that I can begin cutting the next project, but my mind has a real problem with that. "Finish what you start before you start something else!" begins sing-songing through my brain every time I contemplate cutting into the material for my next project. Thus, I sit here like a stick in the mud. Stuck.
I have caught up on paperwork in the past few days and caught up on my laundry yesterday. I am totally SICK of television and reading...I do THAT when my pain or tremor are too bad to do anything else! I looked at a few recipes, but they are not in line with our new eating habits...so cooking/baking is out. I guess I could purge a few more areas of my house, but that is boring too.
I think I need to bring my very first sewing machine home from my parents' house. I gave it to them when my mom started having a harder time sewing by hand and I had gotten another machine. Honestly, she never actually uses it and just brings her mending to me. If I bring it back here then I would at least have a machine that can sew a straight stitch, zig-zag and reverse! It's a good, heavy, mechanical Singer...back in the days when machines were made of metal inside, not plastic, and Singer was a good name in machines. In a few weeks it will be 33 years old! Yup, they made them better back then! Off to phone my mom and see if I can pick it up today. Let's hope by the time I get it I am still feeling good!
