Just Wave My Magic Wand
Am I the only one who is feeling like a Domestic Disaster™ during this holiday season? I had big dreams, but only a few came to fruition. And the reason why, you ask?
Not quite sure…
Maybe it was the Sewing Fairy™ who pulled a work slowdown,
because she had requested a gravity-fed iron
or perhaps she was pissed that she has no fabric stash
or she realized her sewing chair was too low to reach her sewing machine.
Ok. Back to my fantasy life…
Although I finished buying and shipping all necessary gifts, I still have over 100 gifts to wrap…and my gift wrap table is a disaster. So is my sewing room. At least the rest of my house is pretty clean (and decorated, too).
I thought my messy sewing friends would enjoy seeing why I fall short of diva status from time to time.
Now’s it’s real life time…
Many of you don’t know, but I’ve been living with Lupus for 22+ years. Most of the time it’s not a problem, but every once it a while it really slows me down–like for the last few days. Seems when I get stressed, my body just shuts down and it zaps me of all energy. Really bad timing!
So I rest until the guilt of seeing Mr. Diva™ step it up a notch starts to bother me. Honestly, he tries, but he’s not me. And my life (family, friends and home) want ME, not him.
Mr. Diva™ literally takes over running all the errands and finishing up whatever I can’t accomplish. He’s good like that. In the meantime, I rest until I gather up enough energy. So that’s where I am…slowly undertaking things that need to be done.
But not to worry, I’ve already finished putting away all the clothes and most of the fabric in my sewing room is now folded. That will leave me tonight to get all the gift wrapping done. Thank goodness for gift bags…LOL!
