Let me say that again with a bit more feeling.
The time is moving swiftly this year, isn't it! I swear ... when I was younger each day seemed to be a month long. Now each month is like a day! Argh! I've got 15 days ... 15 days mind you ... until the For Sale sign is posted at the end of the driveway. I've noticed that quite a few other houses in this town have been recently listed on the market. They are joining the 3 that have been for sale since we moved here 3 years ago. I am trying to be optimistic but the butterflies are break dancing in my tummy & I just want it all to be over & done with. Sigh!
First of all let me beg your pardon if you have commented on one of my posts & have yet to receive a response or you have sent me an email & have likewise yet to receive a response. I am freaking out more & more as the days go by resulting in total paralysis on some days & then flurries of activity on others. Then there are the continuing medical/dental visits which eat into my do nothing/do everything times. Calgon can't even take me away since I can't use the bathtubs here (they were made for Munchkins).
John & I were in Lexington for 7 hours yesterday running various errands & visiting the eye doctor so I could tell him what he could do with those no-line bifocals he talked me into getting even after I regaled him with the history of my inability to get used to them last year. I now have a pair of simple computer glasses ordered & let's all hope they actually allow me to see the computer screen! On the way home we stopped at Walmart & if you remember my last posting then you can probably already guess what I came home with : )
I took along my list of colors I still didn't have & my sweetie bought them for me : ) A few of the colors were not available. I think maybe Walmart is stocking just what they think are the most popular colors? I'm not sure but they had what I needed (with the exception of maybe 10) so I'm not complaining : )
Throughout the flurries as well as the paralysis I have been trying to stitch at bit each evening & usually have been successful at it. I finished stitching my May RAK as well as a small gift for someone but I can't show them to you yet. I still need to make them into something. I wonder if there's some sort of "stay awake & be productive" pill that I could take for a while? It sure would be nice if there were. Anyway, I did start a 3rd project ... something for an exchange ... which is just in the early stages so I can show you a wee bit of it.
It's one of those "I need to make one of these for myself someday" projects of which I have stitched many ... lol! I hope I do actually get them all made for myself one of these days : )
Tomorrow I revisit the dentist. She thinks she is going to permanently cement my bridge but I am once again going to tell her how unhappy I am with it. When I told her this before her response was that I needed to get used to it. Well, it's been a couple weeks now I hate it even more. Even John has said that I talk as though I have a set of bad fitting dentures in my mouth ... lots of "sssss" sounds & whistles. That shouldn't be! A crown also isn't fitting correctly & she nicked the edge of one of my front teeth when she was doing some drilling in that area so it's uncomfortably pointy there. I am not a happy camper.
Okay ... that's it. I need to finish the garage & yard work which the days of rain prevented me from doing last week. John is upstairs working on making "his room" (where he stores all his CDs & DVDs) look presentable.
