Sigh. No sewing to report on. Remember my plan to bind and wash that quilt and give it to the little girl on Monday or Tuesday? Forget it...that went out the window. I have to go to three days of training for 8 hours this week (Mon-Tuesday-Wed) this week and next. No problem I figure. HA! I went for my training yesterday, and I was wiped out by the end of the day! I had such a headache from eye strain that it wasn't even funny. When I went to the eye doctor a bit more than a year ago, he suggested that I might want to consider bi-focals now that I am (ahem) over 40. Ha ha, very funny I thought. But it is becoming more and more obvious, espcially when I do embroidery while watching TV, that I need to go get the bifocals. Yesterday in training, trying to look back and forth between the powerpoint presentation, and the handouts (and coupled with the sitting down all day, which I never do) really did me in. When I got home, I made dinner, straightened up a bit, and fell asleep almost immediately. So none of that binding on the quilt got done.
Today, training was a lot more physical: we learned about how to restrain someone having a violent outburst and how to protect ourselves. Let me just say that if one of these guys in my care ever decides to hurt me, I'm probably going to be in trouble! I'm exhausted. No sewing is going to happen tonight either.
I need to get Thing One's costumes together: Tomorrow I have to go straight from training to the first Dress Rehearsal for the dance recital (we have four shows, and each show has a separate Dress Rehearsal, plus there is a technical rehearsal for certain numbers that we also need to attend). There goes the next 11 days. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
