From the beginning of the year
-I have contracted flu 2 times
-had 1 food poisoning
-parted ways with certain dearest and nearest
-have had more or less continuous ear infection that rendered me partially deaf (temporarily! still unpleasant)
-had fought and lost battle with coop and the downstairs nut who accused me of “heavy walking”; I am now ordered to install rugs on 80% of my floors to pacify her (good bye, $2K of vacation money)
-at work…let’s not even go there
-and now. NOW. right when I volunteered to sew a new curtain for office’s electrical/phone closet – and ordered and brought home 6yrds of [expensive] fabric; measured and cut, and attempted 1st long seam…now my sewing machine stopped working.
Why, oh why?! it has been functioning perfectly, on all kinds of insignificant little alterations. Fates are laughing at me!
