So, did I do either of the two things on my list today? NO!

My 18-year old son left for work about 8 a.m. I took the dogs out for a mid-morning romp around 10 a.m. and noticed my vehicle was gone and his was still here. With a flat tire. After I told him last night that I had a hair appointment at noon. Grrrr! And let's not forget that he actually has TWO vehicles! The first, a Jeep, the one with the flat. The other, a 1965 Mustang, perfectly driveable. By him. Except it was parked in the garage and blocked by the Jeep so he couldn't easily get it out. I don't drive the Mustang because it has manual steering and no A/C and, well, I'm spoiled. And besides, I couldn't get it out of the garage today even if I wanted to.

My hair appointment has been rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon and I did at least make some good progress on my brown jeans. I'm to the point of sewing in the zipper. The front pockets are sewn and topstitched, as are the back yoke pieces. Tomorrow, I'll finish up the fly, sew the in/outseams, back pockets, and hopefully get the waistband on and the jeans finished. I'd work on them more tonight but I think I'm feeling a cold coming on so I'm going to go vegetate in my bed under the covers with my new Threads. Maybe I'll get a second wind. But at least with a TNT pattern, the whole process is a lot faster and I don't procrastinate through it which makes me optimistic about wearing these Friday night, even if I do pass out at 9:30 tonight. ;-)


  1. TEENAGERS - gotta love 'em. We do gotta love em, right? LOL

  2. Sheesh, teenagers! I got me one too, so I can definitely relate. We just need to learn its ALL about them. LOL!

  3. Love the look of your new jeans! I had teenagers ... I know how you feel. You love 'em, but you don't always have to like 'em. lol...

  4. Brown jeans sounds like an excellent idea for fall! Teenagers. There has never been a group of people who can have me belly laughing one minute, and literally crying the next.
