My arms hurt, my neck hurts, my back hurts, my legs hurt, my feet hurt. There is a spot on my backside that hurts. I’m exhausted, and I don’t WANT to be exhausted because there’s something else I want to be doing.
Today I helped my brother move. We disassembled a pool and a fence and it was WORK. For a living, I sit in front of a computer. I am not prepared for this sort of thing. I mean, I got tired just lifting the stupid battery operated drill. It was literally too heavy for me after 30 minutes – my deltoids are not up to snuff.
As for the spot… I sat on a decrepit old picnic table and it broke. A 2×4 piece of wood splintered – well, chunked really. The wood was obviously rotten, but it’s still terribly embarrassing (and painful) to land on your butt. I’m sure there’s a bruise. (Don’t worry – I won’t be sharing photos.)
The thing is, I started out the morning with another moving project and I really wanted to get back to that. See our new toy?
Through the misfortune of someone else, we were able to purchase this awesome quilting frame and long-ish arm machine for less than half the retail price. It’s new, a floor model from a defunct quilt shop in the area. My mom, two aunts and I are now the proud owners of a Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter 18×8 with a 10 foot Imperial frame. (But it lives at my house!) The 18×8 stands for 18″ long and 8″ high throat space.
Or, to put it in perspective:
And darn it, I’m too tired to play with it! But tomorrow after work, you can bet I’m going to take the bull by the horns.
