Weekend

Chez bitch hosted madre and the friend-who-never-shuts-up . It was a lot of stress. My mother did tell me the house was "shaping up." Later she undermined that complement as she always does by saying that the dude and I were "slow-moving." Because when you leave the house at 8:00 am and return at 7:00 pm, the first thing you feel like doing is putting up toe-molding and painting trim.

I did make a tiny bit of headway on the peace tree. And while sissy took mom to church, I worshipped at Borders. I checked out Super Crafty (not for me) and Alternacrafts (I'd buy it) and a big stack of magazines. I came home with Marie Claire Idees, so I could practice my French and make foreign crafts--lots of cute idees--and BHG Holiday Crafts for the felted throw instructions. I started making a felted throw out of thrift store sweaters about three years ago for friends who moved to Montreal. Now, they're freezing in the Canadian winters and I have a big bag of felted wool in the craft room.

Speaking of the craft room, I can shut the closet door! Now that's progress!

Isn't it the best feeling to have a closet door shut???? I will hopefully have that same feeling today when I start tacking DD's bedroom. Hey, I will be happy if a drawer fully shuts. LOL

I'm a weekly Borders and B&N worshipper. Where I live, B&N has a better selection of magazines, not to mention that I get 10% off them. (Borders doesn't discount their magazines at all). But they do send me coupons every Thursday like clockwork, and I always seem to find something to spend it on... LOL

I too had a mother like you...

OMG!!! I can't believe Anna (the grammar snob) said, "Later she undermined that complement as she always does by saying that the dude and I were "slow-moving."" Compliment, perhaps??? JK, Anna, I love your blog! I wish you still lived in SoCal, because you sound so much like me. But you'd probably a lot of the hate the stuff I stitched in the past. I took a very long break and my tastes have changed somewhat. "Subversive Cross Stitch" speaks to/for me!
