I’d be seriously dangerous. Yes, it was one of THOSE days today. I probably shouldn’t have even attempted to drive my car or run the quilting machine, but I managed to do both of those things just fine. The problem is all of the little stuff that makes me crazy.
Mark asked me to do 2 things for him. Print a report and write a check. About 10 minutes after I’d gotten downtown this afternoon, the phone rings. I had forgotten to do BOTH. SO…Mom kindly let me run home while she kept watching the shop (tough job, I don’t think anyone came in…), as long as I took her coat with me, so Mark could look at the zipper.
I was nearly out the door (not 30 seconds later, after promising to do so…) when she says “The coat?”
I’d almost forgotten it.
There were other examples, but…I’m so brainless I can’t remember what they were. Oh, one of them was that I couldn’t actually print the report right when he wanted it, because I had done something stupid when I entered some transactions, so I had to fix that brainless mistake…
I did manage to make some pretty feathers though:
I also worked on moving some stuff out of my sewing room, so that Mark could begin some deconstruction. After my second trip down the stairs, I suddenly thought to myself:
“HELLO??? THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE CHILDREN.”
And then I made the boys carry the rest of the boxes downstairs.
I was going to sew or do some more straightening up and packing, but I got distracted by a big wad of yarn in my yarn drawer. It was pretty nasty: a whole bunch of yarn that had gotten all tangled together. I dominated it, though…there may have been some cheating by way of cutting some of the yarn free…but still…I cleaned that mess up. I also found a scarf that I had started knitting….more than 2 years ago. The scarf was plenty long enough to wear, so I took a few minutes to go ahead and a bind it off. Now, I’ll probably stick it back in the drawer, because a whole bunch of ends need to be sewn in, and that sounds like too much work.
I think I’ve finally managed to finish the things that Mark asked me to do…so I’d better get to bed before I hurt myself.

Nice feathers and no chips in the bunch.

yeah well, being too organised is annoying. I strive for functional and most days I can hit it,lol.
Wow, it must be terrible being so flighty. God knows I’m completely organized and never forget anything so I can’t relate. Not one bit. Uh un.

Girlfriend, I can totally relate to the scattered behavior! Some days I scare myself! At least you can still feather like mad crazy! Very pretty!

When I have days like that (often), I grab a quilt and a paperback and banish myself to my bedroom where I can hopefully not injure myself or others. Notice I said paperback; a hardcover book could be lethal to me on those days!

I know that feeling, we have a million things going on in our minds at once, and at the same time working on a million projects, so how can we remember those other things in life;)
