Sew very annoying

I hate sewing. I didn't really realize how much it sucks until a few weeks ago when I finally got around to mending several of my items of clothing that really needed it. But, it's horrible. There's a company that does free pickup and delivery of dry cleaning to Microsoft, so I think I'm going to see if they also mend things; I think they do. I'd rather just pay someone to do it. I hate getting results that look like they weren't even half-assed, but more quarter-assed, despite putting my entire ass into the task, and that's exactly what I get when I try to fix my own stuff.

Also, I really just need more shirts.

I really underestimated the value of having the free service of an extremely skilled seamstress when I lived back in Nebraska. And, actually, I used to kind of like sewing, at least cross-stitch. I had smaller hands then, so it was much easier. But, I understand now that I probably only liked it because it was something my mom loved, and I got to hang around with her.

Sewing is awful. Maybe I could just buy duplicates of every article of clothing I get, so when one gets a hole, I can just switch to the backup.

Amen. I draw the line at anything more complicated than a dog toy, mostly because Leo is the only one who doesn't care how crappy my stitching looks.

I disagree. Sewing is fabulous. It got me through ERP and still allowed me to keep my sanity.

Now, the results of my sanity keep me warm at night. :)

I don't know how realistic this is--but you could send home to mom all of the clothes you need mended :).
