Not Dead!

Man, I haven't posted anything here in a long time.

I feel like I've been busy-busy, but I'm not really sure doing what.  And most of my good habits seem to have dropped off as a consequence.  Sigh.  What does it take to really establish a good habit long term?  Very frustrating.

And is it bad that I have thoughts of retiring from work in my head?  Not that I can afford it any time soon.  I figure I'll need to work at least 15 more years before I can really retire.  It would be nice to be able to have the full day, every day to do what I want, though.

I'm stressed about getting ready for GWW.  I have tons to do, and not much time left to do any of it.  I haven't a clue what I'm going to wear.  I guess I need to put my black wool bodice back together after taking it apart to draft  a pattern off it.  (And fix the arm opening.) 

It got quiet at work.  Everyone went off to the Tuesday meeting.  I guess I should get some work done.

Jeez it's been a totally f*cked up day!  I was supposed to spend most of the day working on this Rights clearanc especial project (which has a deadline of next week!) and I spent almost the entire day putting out little fires.  I need to teach the crews I work with to not bug me immediately after a research report from an outside company comes in, cuz, you know! I just might need a little time to look it over and I *might* actually be dealing with a previous crisis!

TGIF but I'm taking a script home to read and work on over the weekend.

I've decided that I can't wait any longer to find my missing shift pattern.  I'm going to take about an old shift and make that into a pattern.  (The old shift is really a shirt, I like them longer now, with (not great) blackwork on the sleeves but it's out of some fabric that must have a high poly content that I would never use now.)  I know the pattern isn't a period one, but if I make the shift out of linen at least part of it will be right.  I finished some (not great) blackwork to go on the collar and cuffs.

So weekend plans are:  

Start a new shift.
Finish the layout on a really simple scroll
Write an article for the Tydes
Work on my chair
Read a script
Write the memo on the script.
Clean my work inbox.

Relax.  :)
