    I've had one all week! I worked on a new purse pattern for 2 days. I read and reread the pattern all the while thinking that the pattern was wrong, but surely patterns couldn't be written wrong!!! Instead of using common sense, I followed the pattern like a good little sewer. Granddaughter will get that purse to play dress up with! Today, I attempted to make my oldest daughter a sundress. Bad Mistake! Looks like Granddaughter will have a dress to play dress up in. Tomorrow I think I'll learn a new hobby or invite my Granddaughter over for the afternoon. HA! Thanks for letting me vent.

    Pam,
    I just noticed where you live. Since we are so close, maybe it's something in the air. Or maybe we could blame it on the heat!

    Yes, the heat! It's funny, I was just remembering how I was complaining about the cold in February!

    At least I have an excuse for 3 more years - CHEMO BRAIN!

    I do a sudoku puzzle every morning to test whether I can do anything important that day. If I can't do the puzzle, I'd better not try to sew! Every time I've 'forgotten' to do that test, I've had to unsew EVERYTHING!

    Chemo brain is a real thing. Chemo is poison, and it can affect your thinking, memory and ability to focus for up to 5 years. My son just laughed and said 'Chemo Brain!' when I called him TWO DAYS AFTER his birthday to wish him Happy Birthday.

    Ohhh, I can vouch for you...yes there is such a thing as chemo brain. Sometimes I feel like mine has gone to mush. So, 5 years of this, huh? Well, I've got about 3.5 years to go! Yipee!!!

    My advice, relax, enjoy life, and don't touch anything sharp or dust your precious collectables!
