have you ever taken someone's sewing and made a boo-boo? I just did.

First of all I wanted to be sick. Right there where I was standing. Then... well, after checking the clock, I got my coat on and drove to the store praying I could find another identical pair of jeans to replace the ones I cut too short.

Lesson learned: measure three times, cut once. After being awake and AWARE for at least half an hour. And two cups of coffee and a shower. No more sleep-sewing.

Actually, I found that the jeans she bought were 'tall' so I got an identical pair of 'regular' jeans and will see if she even realizes that they're a different jean. Knowing my friend, she didn't even see that the style she chose comes in tall, reg. and short. If she in fact DOES realize they're a different pair, I'll give her the money for the jeans and call it a day.

I guess it oould be worse. They could have been 150 dollar designer jeans.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
