It’s a short day for me at work today. I have the appointment with the foot doctor to see about getting me healed so I can start training again. I’m going to throw myself on his/her mercy that I can at least get back into swimming and cyling. Tears may be involved. This has greatly affected my attitude about many things and I need to get it resolved and get back to where I was.
As to this past weekend, where to begin? I did a lot and did so little that I really don’t remember all that I did.
Saturday I braved the commissary because we were expecting cold, blowing rain on Sunday. There were so many Super Bowl displays set up. Almost made me feel like I was at Costco. I managed to stay within my weekly budget, even after spending $20+ on a Brita pitcher for Kahuna to take to work. I also worked more than 15 minutes in my office making room for my sewing machine.
On Sunday there was the obligatory laundry all day while I watched TV and stitched. Before I started any of that though I made a huge bowl of pico de gallo, some guacamole, and a pot of chili. Then I spent time getting to know my sewing machine again (I’ve got to figure out what’s up with the tension). I only managed to get Ann Holewll serged and basted before having to put her away because I don’t have qsnaps available for her. I almost finished Atelier de brodeuse (I need her qsnaps for Ann) instead of working on FAS.
I also need to figure out my stitching schedule for the month so I can be sure to get done what I want accomplished when I get back to training (thinking positive here!). I’m currently thinking 1) Ann Holewll at the beginning of the month until I get the monthly lesson finished; 2) FAS page #x after Ann Holewll; 3) Hannah Beeby during the SAL dates; and, 4) one of the small designs for the rest of the month.
And last, but certainly not least, a shot out to Melissa and Darla for finishing the Surf City 5k in very cold and driving rain.
