Confessions of a Floss Licker

I have a confession...

I'm not stitching much lately. I think it's the heat and I'm not adjusting to it very well. I'm also not getting enough sleep. Part of that is due to faire. I don't sleep well in a tent. I also don't sleep well where there are others staying up and making noise or talking. I've been subjected to both of those lately. So when I get home from work I sleep for an hour or two - part of my prime stitching time. Then I try to make dinner and do chores around the house or run my errands that I've been too tired to do. Unfortunately I've also been logging on to the computer at home while it's still too hot to do anything and I get hooked into a conversation (usually) so then the plant/flower watering is getting impacted too. My poor plants! It's so hot outside and I'm not watering enough. I've got to look up the watering schedule so the "water patrol" doesn't give me a fine - I can't afford that.

But this is a 4 day weekend for me - the company actually gave us Monday off to go with the 4th of July which is on Tuesday this year. My daughter is staying home with me instead of going with her dad (so much for trying to wrangle a date) so I have no plans except for a bbq on the 4th with friends, and possibly stay the night before with a girlfriend. I hope to get lots of stitching done.

No progress to report

I thought it a good idea to take an extra day off work last week and go to Faire early. Faire was in Lake Tahoe and DD and I both needed to get away. I took my stitching because I thought that I might be able to get to it, and I did - once. I have been so tired since then that I have been sleeping instead of picking it up. Since I have no plans to do anything fun this weekend I will be stitching the whole time.
