Sometimes it just turns out that way.........
I've had my own personal musical going on in my head these last few days. Everything I do reminds me of a song. I guess that's what I get for listening to the Golden Oldies and the Wallflowers station on Pandora. Believe it or not, I totally relate to more of what they're singing about vs. Lil Wayne and Eminem. Don't get me wrong, they might have some catchy tunes - but you won't find me up in some club or out on a corner or burning stuff down anytime soon :D Moving along...
Apparently I've got a cold that's like a turd that won't flush (10+ if you can name that movie). Seriously though, I think a week and a half is long enough. I never get sick, so go figure that it creeps up on me two days before my 5k is supposed to go down and is STILL hanging around.
In other news, I went to go make some slippers the other day for Carson out of some fleece I had laying around and I turned on my machine to find that the timing was off. The top and bottom thread don't meet at the same time which, if you don't know, is kinda crucial to sewing. That's what makes the difference between sewing and, well, two threads laying next to each other holding nothing together. Fabulous, no? I was a little sad as I dropped off my little Singer at the repair shop, and I can undoubtedly say - because I've got much experience on the subject - that I actually feel like a little part of me is missing. As much as I yell and scream and swear at it when things aren't going well, it kind of bothers me a bit knowing that it's all on its own, scared and alone, unable to feel the safety and comfort of the only home it's ever known.
What? No I'm not crying. I just got something in my eye.
In any case, I feel really bad for my serger. I haven't said anything to him, but I think he knows that his buddy is gone.
Luckily I was able to find a place that offered a reasonable rate and will clean and fix her up. They do everything in the shop so they don't have to send her out like a few other places I called (which would mean an even longer wait to get her back) and guarantee their work for a year.
Before I go, and because you all read my randomness above (right?!?), I wanted to let you all know that I've got a couple things that I'm really excited about coming up in later posts this week. One's a tasty recipe, and another is a free download/giveaway. Fun stuff, so stay tuned!
