A Full Day

We accomplished a lot today and I am just plain "bushed". We got up early and I contacted a seller that we had purchased a set of tires from on Ebay and he allowed us to come to North Carolina to pick them up at his business. It was a lovely two hours drive . The people were absolutely wonderful so we plan to check with them for our tires .

While we were there I placed a phone call to a Brother Dealer in High Point , N.C. that I had planned to take the Brother Embroidery machine to for repair. I gave it several different attempts before I realized that they were closed on Mondays. I had a small list of Brother Dealers and I started calling them all -and all of them were closed except for the one that was in Greensboro ,N.C. ,which of course was the furthest away from us-but they were the one working . LOL

It was a two hours and a half drive from where we was at and by then we were both so tired. The dealer was a very nice man who said if we decided to do business with him that we would not have more troubles like this? He seemed so nice I did not have the heart to tell him -IF- we got it fixed I hoped to sell it and never lay eyes on it again. But, we will just wait and see what he thinks about it.

I certainly will not get off as easily as I have on the past three places because he said just to look at it would be 150.00 and then all parts would extra.I told DH that it seemed it was like pouring good money after bad. It was a long tiring ride home .Normally time seems to pass more quickly as we return home from a trip-but - because we were tired it seemed to lag on forever for me.The ride seemed to help DH -I think it helped to get his mind off of the cancer. He has always enjoyed driving -I think the distractions help keep him occupied .

Of course when we arrived home I got sick at my stomach. I don't know why except for every time we travel  since that wreck we had I seem to get sick.

I wish I had remembered to take my camera with us today, as we saw some lovely territory.I don't know how long it will take , but we will see how long that will take ?

I hope you have had a lovely day.
Happy Stitches and many more.


  1. Traveling always exhausts me too!
    Hope this guy can fix your machine easily and get it back to you~ If it is fixed, maybe you will end up keeping it! ♥♥♥

  2. Hi Linda,
    We have just come back from a trip that took almost 2 hours.
    Know the feeling about being bushed. Sit back, have a nice cup
    of tea and relax.....think of sewing, that will relax you!!! lol.
    Cheers, Anita.
