Stressed Out

Posted by on November 17, 2005 in craft | 4 comments

Hello internets, I didn’t feel like visiting you for awhile. It’s nothing personal, I have just been a little stressed out these past couple weeks. My poor little car shut down on me late one night, and now I’m trying to find lots and lots of money to get it fixed. Apparently when the timing belt breaks it flies around and messes up large expensive parts of your engine. So go get your timing belts checked, people. The last time I saw it, it’s guts were spread out all over the mechanic’s garage. So sad. I will try to remember some happier times:

I should be able to pick it up Tuesday. Just in time for Thanksgiving, which only means more stress as I will have to clean the house and drive 3 hours to pick up my mother-in-law so she can spend the weekend making comments that I’m never sure are compliments or insults. Like when she told the husband that she thought I was a good cook, but she’s never seen or tasted the things I make before. So I’ll be slaving in the kitchen making turkey and pies for her. I hope I don’t get too crazy exotic with my food selections.

I did get these little guys finished and packed up and sent off for Plush Rush. Here they are in their box:
I hope they sell, I think there are going to be a lot of cool things from people who are way more creative than me.

I should really end the pity party now, so here are a few positive thoughts: the dog bite is nearly healed although a bit of bruising remains, it’s Thursday-only one more day until the weekend, I started knitting myself a sweater, and that’s about all I can think of for right now.

Thanks for all the comments lately, I really do plan on responding, but I just haven’t felt like checking e-mail. Maybe in the next few days.


  1. So sorry to hear about your troubles – not to mention expense.
    I have learned that least said soonest mended with mother-in-laws. Hope it’s not too painful!

  2. Sorry to hear about your car. 🙁 AND it’s SO CUTE! Hope it feels better soon and doesn’t dampen your holiday spirit too much. Also glad to hear your other “wounds” are healing. Take care!
