Calvin really likes this picture of me. It was taken a few weeks ago. I hate posting without photos. No other reason for the picture!
First, the wedding may be off! Not the marriage...just the wedding. I want something very small and still want to do it at church after Sunday worship service but people are starting to drive me crazy about what I HAVE to do. Calvin is sick of it and so am I. I am about ready to tell everybody to got to Hell and leave me alone. I see now why people elope...I am ALMOST there. If I don't wan't a bouquet, personalized napkins, attendants, engraved cake knife, a video etc., that's my business.
I've been sick since Saturday afternoon. If I never have nausea or vomiting for the rest of my life that is okay with me. My throat feels as though I've burned it with hot coffee. Since Saturday I haven't been able to keep any food down for long and have mostly given up trying. I've been living on crackers and diet Pepsi...the 6 oz cans. I don't know what brings it on but when it does I have go off of my meds but feel as though I'm walking around (okay laying around) in a drug-induced haze. I've got the shakes and am generally miserable. So do I feel like working on my dress or any other wedding details? No. What was I thinking getting married this month? Calvin says I haven't had an entire week of feeling great since September 2008. Yikes! I never really thought about that. I still think someone should have warned me. I was just so sure that after surgery I was going to be back to normal. I think I felt better when I still had cancer! Recovering is killing me! So I'll have to spend about a week off of all meds and then another week slowing going by on. By then it will be the 17th and only 13 days to the wedding. I'm going to sleep on it for one more night but generally I think I'm calling everything off except the "I do(s)."
In your opinion what is the difference between an experienced and an inexperienced sewer? I think the difference is that an experienced sewer really knows what their particular limitations are and readily accepts them or takes steps to correct them. An experienced sewer knows when a project can be salvaged and when to give up the fight and move on. Not every project can be salvaged. I used to have a poster in my sewing room of a man floating in an inner tube in what appeared to be the middle of the ocean. It read "good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from poor judgement." In my opinion that is truly the difference between experienced and inexperienced sewers.
