Tuesday, Paperwork, Blah!


 Even though I have way too much work to do in the shop, I also have these little nagging paperwork thingies' I have to deal with, and I want to put off, but I really shouldn't.   They creep in while I am sewing and take my mojo away. So, while I was writing to (actually bitching to) Sissie this morning in our morning email, I made a list and actually made myself do it and it took less than 5 minutes.

Call and set appointment for car to be fixed, as insurance finally sent us the info. Call pharmacy for refills, one is ready the other ordered.  Call another pharmacy to order very expensive med, this is a pain in the butt. Call and set appointment for a medicare meeting with my insurance agent as I will have to go on full medicare next year and I need to know my options and get my budget set.  They say you need to do this 6 months in advance. I also need to use up 4 points at Albertsons or lose them, but I can go pick up prescription that is ready and get some free things or money off.  Hopefully it will be meat.  So that is slated for this evening. I hate niggy noo crap like this and how do you handle it?  Just little things that are always there bugging you.  Like a mosquito you can't seem to slap. Oh also call and make a nail appointment.

Anyway, I am feeling better although now I have to make the appointments I set and remember them and carry these things out.  Another bother.

Hubs did very well with the apple yesterday as I refused to help other than finding the strainer for him and bagging the sauce. It took him many hours to get all those apples peeled and ready.  He complained that his wrists were sore.  Yeah, I know that feeling.  We got three bags of pie slices and 8 quarts of homemade sauce. So that made enough for 16 meals of applesauce and three more pies.  Now I have enough pie filling except pumpkin for the year. We are actually talking of getting another upright freezer and getting rid of the small chest freezer we have, but that would mean rearranging the garage and there is not time for that right now.  But the chest freezer is very hard for me as stuff gets lost in the bottom and I find it aggravating to organize.

I was able to complete three wedding dresses yesterday and they will all be picked up today! Today is bridesmaid dresses and the piles.  Lots of hems and mending and little things that just need done and out of the way.  I did hand baste a couple of hard zippers into items last night, so I want to get those done also.  If I can get these things done, I will start on another wedding dress that is due out next week and I would like to get it done before I leave.  The rest of the wedding dresses are slated for Sept 24th or later.  I will start on those next week when I get back.

The list:

1. mend swimsuit, and toy

2. sew in zipper

3. sew in zipper and mend a swimsuit

4. hem 2 jeans

5. hem jeans and mend item

6. hem and take up shoulders of a bridesmaid dress

7. hem brides maid dress

8. hem two bridesmaids dresses

9. peg and pair of work pants

10.hem 2 shirts

11. hem a pair of pants

12. pile of mending

13. pile of mending

14. get to a wedding dress maybe.

Okay if I get through this list, it will be a Holy miracle.  Remember when you were little, and your mother would tell you that anything she could not explain was a Holy miracle?   Well, mine did anyway. All miracles were Holy. I just went back and capitalized Holy..... 

I am going to set my timer and get busy knocking things off this list.

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

  2. Oh how I enjoy your writing style…yes, many things in my childhood were Holy miracles ;). We had a thunderstorm a few days ago and when I heard the thunder I told my husband…when I was little, I was told that the noise was either God bowling or God’s stomach growling. Made sense at the time ;). I also laughed at how when you wrote down the list of paperwork to do items, once you did it, it took no time really. I absolutely hate doing floors, specifically vacuuming. I finally timed how long it took me to vacuum all the high traffic areas…15 minutes. I spent more time than that grumbling about it. So now, I vacuum without all the anguish ahead of time! Love your blog, Hilogene in Az.

  3. Do get your nails done. Never mind making money...lol. Oh, I have done the same for years, just not now. The last semester when I had to pass algebra, I quit having my nails done. It was all too stressful. I forget why you have yours done.

    Tommy leaves too much of the core and it chokes me! So, he does not peel apples. I need to get him to do it right, but he won't! I have to get the ten peaches done...lots of work to do in a chair when it is all so juicy and slippery.

    It took me longer to decide to get out the vacuum than to vacuum. Plugging it up seems to take so much time and energy. Once I plugged it in, it was all downhill. Of course, now I cannot push it. So, I don't.

  4. Man you are the busiest human I know! I made a list of 3 things to accomplish today and other than making the bed and doing a load of laundry (neither of which were on the list) I have done next to nothing.

  5. Add me to the list of folks wiped out reading your post. Though, I tackled both going to the Mall of America and IKEA in the same afternoon. You know I hate malls, but since it was with my daughter, it was fun.

  7. I am a procrastinator -I make lists of those annoying little tasks and just keep transferring them to the next list for weeks, eventually they get done but yes, I'm slack on the paperwork side of things. I lose things in my chest freezer, I should have got an upright one.

    1. I know. I really hate my chest freezer, but it was free, so I took it. I really need an upright. Put that on the list of things to put off getting done.
