She Had To Have Known I Was Going To Blog This

Ring, ring

Hello?

Hello.

Hi Mum. How are you?

Fine. How are you?

Good.

What are you doing?

I'm on the computer.

On the COMPUTER?

Uh, yep.

Why don't you get off the computer and go do your sewing?





My mother. Setting back the women's movement, one phone call at a time.

  3. This was meant to be encouragement, I'm sure. I am giving everybody home-made presents for the holidays, and yesterday I canned 3L of peach salsa (plus made a weeks worth of peach pancakes for the kids' breakfast) and made labels for them, but I did not get to a stitching project as planned.

    Geez, maybe it's ME setting back the women's movement.

  9. Shit. This post made me wonder why I was sitting at the computer and not sewing. There's just too damn much for a renaissance woman to do in a day. Right?
