This is my rope, and this is the end of it.
1. Blackjack – dh’s cat not mine, we had to have her partially declawed (no declawing lectures please! medical necessity here). Her sixth toe, the claw had become ingrown so it was decided that it was time to declaw that toe (only!). We had always known that it might happen so it wasn’t a surprise, but it was something we tried to avoid. No luck. The cat, she’s fine. I am getting next to no sleep because she is sleeping at my feet all night except when she is chewing at the bandage at regular intervals to make sure that if she has to be miserable and awake, I’m miserable and awake.
2. Monday I worked with my personal trainer. My back is still sore. Let me clarify. Monday night I was sore, Tuesday I was in so much pain I took a tylenol #3 so I could sleep. Wednesday I hurt. Thursday I was sore, and today I only have twinges if I stretch wrong. It’s a bit of an understatement to say she worked every muscle in my back to the maximum. And no, I didn’t *hurt* anything. I just overworked *everything*
2b. To add insult to injury Thursday I had a “fat day”. Everything in my closet made me look fat.
3. Thursday, chipped a freshly painted nail whilst cleaning the bathroom. That’ll teach me to clean the bathroom I suppose.
4. Friday, my beads & braid for TOT finally arrived! Switching from MMV to TOT has given me a headache, and oh I found that somewhere in the top beading I made a mistake. I can’t find it, and I can fudge it; but I am pissed. I’m not stitching right now because of the headache. And no, I can’t take anything because I’ve been taking too much Advil all week because of my damn back.
The PTP fabbie I ordered for the Winter Neighborhood RR arrived with the beads etc. It’s nice, but I’m not thrilled to death with it. There’s nothing wrong with it, I’m hoping once I get something stitched on it I’ll fall in love with it.
And my scroll bars arrived today, well before I expected them. And the cherry to this week? One of them arrived broken. Motherfucker.
I’ll post pics sometime this weekend of an updated MMV, a finished TOT – yeah right, I’m not going to have time, the fresh but chipped mani, and no pic but a happy dance on my F&S #8 that is due in the mail Monday. Which I haven’t started yet. *ugh* Please, if only one thing can go right this weekend let it be this! I do have the fabric, threads, chart ready and waiting in my stitching drawer so all I have to do is stitch it.
The light at the end of the tunnel? The cat’s bandage is getting cut off tomorrow afternoon!
