I am filling in, but it was like every strand I stitched ended up just a few stitches short of completing the tree, or the leaf or the face. So I am trying to catch those area so I can start to call areas complete. Today I decided to just call it a stitching day, and I have stitched 10 hours so far.
I got my dishwasher installed - I have used it twice. It looks a little wonky, but it is level, my kitchen counter isn't anymore. But I would rather the dishwasher fill and drain properly, than look level, and not work. It is rated as being the same level of quiet, but it is quieter. I am still getting used to the control buttons. It flashes at me like - hey lady - you don't know what you are doing.... I have actually read part of the manual, but not all the manual. I see cookie making in the near future.
I am trying to put myself on a slower spending budget. What I spend seems to swing wildly at times - and I am sure sometimes it is from need, sometimes it is pure emotional spending from depression. Sorting that out and seeing if I can lower my monthly averages. But like a diet, it is an everyday thing that you can be good all month, then blow it all up in a single day, or the last day of the month. So I am back to wearing things out, using things up. This will be a year of finishing projects I have started, and buying only the one to two that I truly love.
