A Doll for a Doll...

I am beginning to really dislike Mondays!  And Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays!  The rest of the week, however is just fine!

More than disliking the days - I dislike the stress that goes along with those days.

I made up my mind on Sunday, that I would return to work on Monday with a refreshed attitude to just go to work, do my job, not get caught up in the politics and stresses, and to let go that which I could not change or control.

Well that lasted all of 20 minutes - until the system kept crashing, until I really waded through my in-basket - until 2 new doctors were added to our roster, until we were told that yet another new doctor would be added in September - until, until, until...  And then the eye twitch that had all but disappeared on the weekend  returned with a vengeance.

After work I went home determined to put it all out of my mind, so I picked up the hook and thread and finished the outfit for a little cheapo doll I found.  She has no value what-so-ever, but she reminds me of someone, and I think she's terribly cute.  She is essentially a doll - for a doll...

Then it was off to do errands after supper, with a stop at WalMart.  I was waiting for the pharmacy to fill and prescription so I spent time in the magazine isle -something I have not done in years.  Checked out the crochet, knitting, and quilting magazines, and a few of the decorating ones - then went to the craft/yarn/fabric section.  Well there really is no such thing anymore in the Canadian stores.  Blah, blah to WalMart Canada!  I was looking for a fine-tipped mini glue gun - Nadda!

And back to the twitching eye!

Tonight an old school friend who lives out of town is dropping by with her husband for a visit, and she is bringing me her childhood doll to restore.  Can't wait to see her - and to have a new project to work on.  Tonight is going to be a much better evening than last evening - but first we have to get through the day - 

Twitch, Twitch!


  1. what you need to keep in mind is that when that system crashed there was an IT guy having a bad morning to.

  2. NO - The IT guy is vacationing in Japan, and left for what I'm sure was a much needed vacation without fixing the server problem we have had for about 2 yrs.... :(
