That's how I'm feeling — upside down. Don't you think Chili is illustrating that perfectly? ;-)
I miss talking to my son. I miss knowing that he's going through all sorts of new and challenging times and I can't know what he has to say about it, at least not until the letters start coming and even then, it's not going to be the same. I miss our conversations. I miss our little texts to each other during the day. I miss our dorky almost daily ritual of watching Jeopardy together. And I can't believe how weepy I still am. I know I sound pitiful and I know it will get better. But right now? Well, it just sucks. Thanks for listening.
I know my pity party isn't much fun for you guys so I'll move on to other things.
The only sewing since last weekend has been to sew a button on my younger son's friend's shorts (hide your eyes Selfish Seamstress!) and today I serged the raw ends of some cuts of fabric so I could pre-wash them and put them away. They were the last hold-outs from my fabric closet reorganization. (That's still more sewing than some people in NYC cough:Peter:cough.)
I did pull out actual garment patterns tonight and I will be starting on SOMETHING wearable tomorrow. I also want to make another HP Sunshine Top so maybe I'll even get two new tops done by the time the long weekend is over. I decided that if I plunge into a new pattern, I will distract myself from the pity party for a while. I might have something new to blog about too.
And for those waiting with bated breath, I'm also almost finished writing up the tutorial for the Bread Safe (DS#2 wants me to call it the Bread Buddy — opinions?) and that will be available soon. But no more anonymous bread lectures from the peanut gallery, OK? I *do* buy and also make very healthy whole grain fresh breads on a regular basis, but I also have a husband and son(s) who prefer the squishy bread for PB&Js. I don't think lesser of them for it. But since I'm sure I'm not the only one who buys that devil bread on occasion, I thought it would be fun to share a solution for something that has bugged me when buying the evil stuff. Please feel free to have your own bread preferences. Really. Now I'm off to eat some Twinkies, Cheetos and Diet Coke. Hahahaha …
