2012 what to do to keep busy

Another day to fill. What to do with myself.

We have been living in NC for 6 years now. Time does fly when you’re not doing anything. I have come to the conclusion that…… I will not find a job anytime soon and I need to find something to do during the day to keep from eating myself into a LARGE Fat Woman.

Did I say women? I hate that word. It makes me feel so old. I am old, but I don’t feel it. I think it has to do with not having kids. Most of the people I know who have kids at some point had to become “a responsible adult”. Having no kids means No Responsibility. Which translates into, Not Having to Grow Up. So I still feel like I did when I was 25. I don’t look it, but I feel it.

So, what to do with myself today????
I have been quite productive for a Wednesday. I meet with a Handyman type person this morning, 6:45 to be exact at our neighborhood pool. How many of you where up and out by then? Anyway, I got the ball rolling on an extension of the entertainment space at the pool. Hopefully it will not be too expensive and I can get the neighborhood to OK it.

Finished with him by 7am now what?? I started sewing a purse yesterday so…… since I was up and raring to go I finished it. What do you think?? Ok, it’s my first one and I have to admit the zipper was the hard part. Trying to figure out how to connect all the pieces so that it held together and does not look like crap was not as easy as it looks on YouTube. Some of those people are Truly Talented. Me, I just fake it.

I've joined a Sewing Class

Even though I have been sewing since I was a kid I never really mastered it. So, my girlfriend suggested I join her in taking a Sewing Class in downtown Mooresville. I am so glad I did.

Our teacher; Shawnelle at Future Fashion Designers is so much fun. I consider her one of my very good friends in only a few weeks. I am glad I met her and look forward to many many laughs ahead.
