Wednesday, Life is a whirlwind

     What happened to yesterday?  I do remember blogging and then I ran upstairs to fix my hair (nasty curly mess )  I get  a phone call and it is Sissy she is at the airport.  I didn't expect her for two more hours.  Thank goodness mom was ready and the airport is less than 5 minutes away.

     Then is was home to try and get some sewing done, but with plenty of interruptions. Sis took mom to run some errands which was so nice.  Mom was her usual cranky self.  Which was not so nice for Sis but at least she got to see what I deal with on a daily basis. I had to be to the studio at 4 to help choreograph a number for Peter Pan.

     I taught dance for 2.5 hours and then went over to Lil sis's.  All of us girls and mom went out to dinner, (mom's treat).  We took the left overs home to Hub's.  We had a lot of laughs and spent time organizing the big birthday party we will have here on Saturday.

     Then I came home and had to finish up a wedding dress and the bride came by about 9:30 to pick it up she was thrilled.  I was tired.  Got mom to bed and then collapsed myself.

     Sis slept at Lil sis's so she could get up early and help Lil sis get her house ready for the company as all 5 beds will be filled this weekend. Lot's of laundry to get caught up on with the beds.  Sis was back over to my place by the time I got up and was racing through the house.  She has mom and I am leisurely typing at my computer with no one picking at me.  It is wonderful.

     There are  several stacks of alterations to do and another wedding dress to get ready for a fitting tomorrow.  So I had better get busy.

     I am just so happy that my sissy is here.  I love when the three of us get together.  We can have so much fun.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

    1. I am and it was so great to be able to sew for a little over 3 hours today and get done what usually takes me 6-8 hours with mom.

  4. I spent some time catching up on your posts. You have been very busy, to put it mildly. I'm glad you got so many sewing jobs in your studio, and it sounds like you are making tons of progress on them. I'm sure the bride was delighted. 8 more to go? I hope they are not complicated.

    There are so many projects I want to do, like work in the yard, sew, quilt, and so forth. But, I'm sure if I did sew for as many hours a day as you do, I would probably become ready for another activity. It's amazing that you can do it for so long without getting a back or neck ache or a headache!

    1. Becky Gepford,
      As someone who can sew for ten hours straight with only bathroom and snack breaks and then go back for more sewing, I can tell you it is possible not to suffer. I rarely sewed in a tense condition unless it was just to get lots done. I never had a back, neck, or headache from sewing.

      Using a vacuum for an hour caused more pain...lol...and I have the damaged back to prove there was a problem long ago.

      I can see how she sews so much, but it is the rock hauling stuff she also does that makes me wonder how she can do it all!

    2. I am starting to get some back spasms this last year. But this is a 40 hour a week business so I sew a great deal. I feel blessed to have this work. Sewing is relaxing for me and works well with my arthritis. Some of my Wedding dresses are complicated, but I have sewn for so long nothing really phases me. If I get a bad feeling about someone or something I tell them I am not able to do it.
