MAMMA ALWAYS SAID
forrest's mama did say it
an i've been wanting for so long to make some new pillows for the living room for this dark furniture to say SPRINGTIME and woe is me but every dang time i went in to sew the mackine would refuse to behave. only an inch or so and POP the thread would break from the top. i changed needles, changed tension, prayed, oiled and did everything short of a sewing machine exorcism but got nowhere with it.
sooooooooooooooooooo i took it to the sewing machine hospital last thursday and left it for repair
yesterday i drove a new patient to his radiology treatment and had a long wait so i decided to go shop around at the goodwill until he called to be picked up and lookey look what i found for a total of $21.00. Yep four of them and i was blown away because i have the same fabric already! and i like the way they look in here
weeeeeeeellllllll wouldn't ya just know it i no sooner got home and the phone rang and yep it was the sewing machine doctor's wife telling me my machine was ready to be picked up and the cost was $55.00. yikes i only paid $79.00 for the thing and now i owe 55.00 on top of that.
but it was broken and they did fix it........so what the heck am i complaining about. actually when i figure the 55.00 bucks for the machine repair and the 21.00 bucks for the pillows of which i already had the fabric for goodness sake then the pillows really cost me $76.00. ouch....if you say it real fast it won't hurt quite as bad
just like miz gump says........life is like a box of chocolates and ya just never never know what you'll get
for instance we got ourself a green day here today and that my friend spells T-O-R-N-A-D-O and in louisiana ya just never know what you'll get so i better run out and grab my machine while i can and when i get my bad self back home i plan to curl up in these fluffy yellow pillows and enjoy this book that Peggy from Queenmothermamaw suggested i read
i didn't buy it but ordered it from the library two months ago and it finally came in and boy was she right......it is a heck of a good read
'yall have yourself a fine day 'ya hear?
