What a crabby day

Mary Engelbreit


I should have just stayed in bed..if I was comfortable I may have….

terrible night sleep from my RA…..

within 30 minutes of waking..Erinn and Nate were already at each other’s throats…..

Within inches of the final hem on the bathroom curtain, I run out of bobbin in the sewing machine……

Did I mention my body is killing me? 😦 ……..

and the final straw…..

popping Nate’s clothes in the dryer because I was too lazy to put them on the line… and I hear clunk clunkity clunk  ..

Ugh..his Nintendo DS was in his jeans pockets and ran through the wash cycle…seriously? praying it will dry out and work

Okay, so if you called me right now and said…
“I would like to stick a needle in your foot a thousand times for an awesome tattoo”

I would say..”Sign Me Up!”

But if I receive this in the mail from the pharmacy and instructed to take one injection once a week…

You will find me under the dining room table with my head between my knees 😦


No, I DO NOT have Cancer, Praise God

But the medicine that is used to treat my Rheumatoid Arthritis, is traditionally used in Chemotherapy. I have always known this, but I have been taking this in a pill form. Lately, my RA has been acting up, so my doc decided to switch me to injection form, which is a bit more potent and effective treatment.  But, opening this up in the mail was a bit startling and scary. I didn’t realize the severity of my treatment, I guess..

Why am I such a baby? I dunno 😦 What’s the difference?

Will I complain each week when Hubs gives me an injection?

You bet!

Will I make another tattoo appointment before Summer rolls around???

Another great day in the Sewing Room! I have finally found such a Quick & Easy pattern for Sewing Machine Cover and it also came with some great accent patterns too! It is McCalls 8391.  I only needed a yard for each pattern and each one took me under an hour to complete!

I made covers for my Sewing machine and Serger, a trash bag for the Serger and this great wedge pillow for my sewing chair. My RA has been really bothering lately, so I am hoping this should give me some relief so I can continue to sew. I am really enjoying these projects and I hope I can keep thinking up fun ideas so I don’t fizzle out…
