I got a little sewing done on my pants this weekend, and I’m excited with what I’ve got done so far. I am a little depressed at all the time I’ve wasted with them though. For example, it took me 2 hours to put the buttonholes in because my machine kept bogging down. I was cursing the fact that I didn’t have a buttonhole foot, madly digging through my sewing stash, looking for something, anything, that might work. Then I found the buttonhole foot I didn’t know I had. After that, it took about two minutes. The next part I got (am getting?) hung up on is the fly front installation. I’ve about come to the conclusion that I was supposed to shorten my zipper to the length of the fly shield, but it doesn’t really say that anywhere. It would have been nice if it did. I’ll take out the fly, fix it, and then move on to the next step.

I cleaned out my cabinets today. Apparently, I’m subconciously worried that I might run out of things. That’s the only reason I can come up with for the 3 boxes of oatmeal, 4 boxes of saltines, 2 bags of Splenda, 5 boxes of macaroni, 4 boxes of spaghetti, and 1 2-year-old bag of flour I found today. I wish I was exaggerating about that, but I’m not.  🙂

I had asked Nathan to hang the coatrack and shelf in the kitchen for me, but he never quite got around to it. I really can’t say much, since I was perfectly capable of doing it myself and was just to lazy to. But since everyone is coming for Thanksgiving it’ s probably time we tried to make things a little more presentable.  To that end, I hung my own things in the kitchen.  Don’t they look cute? And yes, those are the hand towels I outbid you on at family reunion, Mom.
