No Rest For The Wicked

Since I am still sewing I have been unable to attend to my blog. I will be back to write more when I have more of a break.

Another Day, Another Dirty Dish

So the sewing continues unabated, the orders still roll in, and my household manages to mock me at every turn. Now it is my sink. Yes even the house itself is against me. My sink is clogged. Not an ordinary clog mind you, but a clog to end all clogs. My husband used the plunger, draino, liquid plummer, muratic acid, a snake. He took the pipes apart and forced the hose down as far as it would go and turned the water on high. Nope, no dice. So here it has been three days of him trying to unclog this drain. Three days of not being able to wash dishes, cook a meal, clean my kitchen. If you think that is not that bad, I live in a small mining town with no real fast food restaurants. We have been eating sandwiches off paper plates and I for one want a hot meal so bad I could cry! But have you ever tried to wash a pot in the bath tub? Yeah, right I have a notoriously bad back and would end up in traction in a heartbeat. Hmmm... traction... hospital kids..... nah the medical bills would kill us. But it is tempting, oh so tempting!

Sewing My Fingers To The Bone

Just a quick note to say, no, I haven't died. I have just been so busy sewing I haven't had time to blog, read forums, clean my house, discipline my kids, kiss my husband or any of that sort of thing. Yeah, they are all pretty pissed about it too. The dishes overflow the sink, the husband is surly and the kids run amok. I may just move out!
