all in one day    2009-04-24 07:05:07 ET
Having one day off a week makes me appreciate the day. then I get frustrated in indecision over how the time should be spent. In just me time, or should I also do things like clean the bathrooms?

I have sooo many projects to work on. I am knitting a purse for my mom, a hat for my husband, I am working on a drawing of something inspired by the story of mary of bethany, I have taught my self to shuttle tatt lace, so that work is laying there calling to be finished. I have some fabric that has assigned patterns and I have to have find somewhere to have the machine repaired.

And house work calls. I can never seem to not have laundry to do. and I need to bake bread for the week. I should sweep and mop all tile an linoleum in my house today..

On top of this: an Art show devoted to social injustice; to the education of the public and support of nonprofits (that husband has work showing in), is tonight. They own my soul from about 5pm on.

well. Time to make waffles. we shall see what gets done today.

My sewing machine is not acting right.

I am a little mechanically inclined.. this hints at a temptation to take the thing apart and try to fix it myself... But I love my machine. le sigh... Perhaps I will pick up some cheap sewing machine at a garage sale this summer and teach myself how to fix one on that. Until then.. I'll be patient enough to find a sewing machine Dr.

I could try to make button holes on my serger but that is asking for trouble. The shirt I was making will have to wait.

Someday I will have to buy a really good and expensive machine. My refurbished white is a good girl but she does not compare to my mom's Bernina.

Retail sucks my will to live.

My will to live is then replaced with a slow steady rage.

being angry the whole time at work just makes me really tired.

The exhaustion robs me of motivation to do anything meaningful with my time off.

The downward spiral depresses me and all I can ever think about is how I need another job.

GOAL: to find away to not let retail suck my will to live. so I can search for a new job with hope and patience, not desperation.
