I think I want to cry right now but I HAVE to laugh instead! These past few weeks have been so ridiculous it's unreal! After having my old computer crash, then having internet connection troubles with this new one, plus a HIDEOUS Lupus flare-up AND a bad old fall which caused - you guessed it - MORE stitches in my round head, plus a burn on my hand, and on & on, I THOUGHT things were finally turning around. But today I decided to try to get some small carpet stains up. The landlady - a sweetheart - did not replace the carpet before we moved in and it's very light-colored so it shows every little DOT. I HAD professional carpet cleaners out here the first week we were here, but they didn't do a good job, and these spots - while not all that bad - BUG me. Well, I read that Oxyclean will get out even old stains. So after I spent two hours scrubbing the house up one side & down the other earlier today, I decided to try a small spot & see if it worked. It SEEMED to so I went ahead and scrubbed ALL the spots. Only problem IS, it leaves a white spot where the dirt was. Sigh. So I NOW have MULTIPLE lil' white spots all over the house. CRUD. Decided not to stress over it and came in here to my craft area. Now most of you know I do not have feeling in my hands or legs a great deal of the time. THAT'S why I fall so easily & burn or cut or stick myself so much. I didn't do ANY of those things tonight. Huh-uh. Instead, I walked past my shelves - the ones behind my craft table and heard a loud, "CRASH!!!!!" OH, NOOOOOOOO! Approximately 10,000 (no exaggeration whatsoever) beads came pouring out of the huge container I didn't even FEEL myself knock off as I passed by it. It took me 2 solid HOURS to get 90% of them picked up. Heaven only KNOWS how long I'll be finding the REST of the cursed things. Once I finished, I thought, "Okay! I should just make this sound FUNNY & blog about it. So I found a couple of pictures of multiple beads. (You don't REALLY believe I'd take a picture of the actual MESS I had to clean up, right? No way! I was WAY too busy using up my year's supply of bad language!) Saved the pictures & came over here to post. The picture thingy in Blogger isn't working. Sigh. As a result, THIS is what you get tonight! A grumpy old post with no photo. I HOPE by Sunday evening to post a HAPPY account of my latest creations AND some PICTURES. In the meantime, I think I will go drown my frustration in a HUGE Margarita. Oh, wait - I don't drink. LOL! Maybe just some water & an aspirin. Nighty-night, all! Tomorrow HAS to be a better day, don't you think?
NOTE: THE CRAZY PHOTO JUST DECIDED TO POP UP ALL BY ITSELF. GREMLINS, I TELL YOU!
