When time is short, shouldn't everything go smoothly?

I finally found some time to sew this weekend after working almost 60 hours during the week.  I know that sounds unbelievably ridiculous for a teacher, but my job is not an average teaching job this year.  Unfortunately, my new Babylock is catching on something and won't stop jamming.  I know it could be me, but I have been threading it for some time now and following the directions carefully.  Argh!  I am fighting the Charlie Brown attitude that if something can go wrong it will. 
I went to church this morning hoping to hear something that would help, and the sermon was about how life can throw you wild cards changing your plans completely.  I have an Uno card in my purse to remind me to accept the wild card because you never know what can happen. 
With any luck my trek out to the store from which I purchased the machine at the American Expo will have  a wonderful treasure. 
Hope your weekend was better than mine!


  1. I hope your current week is less filled thank last week, though probably not. I taught for 30 years, and 60 hours a week was the norm. The job just expands to fill the motivation, and involvement. I don't know how long you have been in the classroom, but I'd be happy to talk with you further if you want me to listen.

  2. I hope this week is better than last.
