I got my embroidery machine back and I think my sanity is coming back also. We all have ways of dealing with stress and pain -and it seems like mine is creating wearable art forms.
Of course the bad thing today was that I was having a fight with "fibro-fog"- I HATE it. It meant I could not remember how do my project and I did EVERYTHING wrong to start with - had to rip it all out and do it a second time. It was very disheartening-but it was just something that I work constantly to overcome.
The weather today was Beautiful - lots of sunshine and very warm temperatures. I even had to turn the air conditioner on in my sewing room window,as this room has full evening sun and it got really warm. Our oldest son stopped by with a friend to change some tires and visit with DH. I know he really enjoyed their company as he has not felt so great today. He said he was weak and his stomach hurt. The doctor had told him that he has diverticulitis and game him some antibiotics which is suppose to help -but it has hurt every since he started taking it last week. It makes me very sad to see him hurting and not be able to fix it for him.
I thought I was making good progress so I cut out a lightweight tee shirt for my sister-in-law and found the perfect design for it. It was sewing out nicely and I was happy until I ran out of bobbin thread. Little did I realize that was not my only problem. When I turned it over to snip threads I had left a part of the shirt hooked on the back of the design -so I had sewed the front to the back of the design. GRRRRRR! Anybody with a spare brain out there I could sure use it. LOL
I am still trying to make friends with these False teeth-I wonder if everybody has these challenges when they get them? Of course I believe I am doing better than DH did with his. I gave it a week to hopefully let my gums get toughened up and then I started gently scraping on the spot that hurts. It helped that was one of the days when we took the Brother machine to N.C. , so it helped to keep my mind busy. There was one spot that was higher on the right side than in the left side -so I gently scraped a little at a time till they looked even and fit better. I am learning how to eat with them -but it is kinda like eating with rocks in your mouth. Where I had asked the lab tech to slightly push the two teeth on each side of your two larger front teeth -she did an excellent job with that . I told her that I was not a perfect person and I did not want perfect teeth-I always enjoyed my slight imperfection as it made me ME. So, that helps me enjoy them more and attempt to incorporate them into being part of me.
I do enjoy this "grandmaw age" much better than all of those younger ages -but I am finding that you have to get up and "put on your false parts" -it is definitely a learning age. False teeth -false eyes - what else will be next?????? LOL
