New Month, New Resolve
I had to stay home this morning to wait for the Cable Guy. It turns out that, after many service calls and nearly three years of service, the reason I wasn't having great luck with my service is that there was a 'trap' on my cable line, to prevent me from 'stealing' the service I've been paying for! Incredible. But, in that all's-well'that-ends-well way of things, it's fixed. AND it turns out that I now get the Food Channel -- I may have to quit my job for sure, just to stay home and watch TV.
While I waited, I finished up one of my projects, at least to the extent I was able. I got the little coin purse all put together (AND cut out another one!), now I just need to wait for the handle to arrive in the mail. I've never put on a purse handle before, but I hope it will be as easy-peasey as I'm told it is!
After the Cable Guy left, I had a list of Intentions. First I drove to the quilting shop for fabric, only to discover that it is closed on Mondays. Saaaaaaad face. Most of today's plans revolved around fabric.
So I drove to my local shooting range instead, and fired up the pistols. I shoot two guns, both the same caliber, both the same manufacturer, but one is quite a bit heavier than the other. I fired about a hundred rounds today. I've only been to the range six times this year, but I shot pretty well. I wish I'd remembered to retrieve my target so I could show it off -- all shots were in the black (of course), but more bulls-eyes than usual, if I do say so myself!
So the month is off to a decent start -- I'm willing to give myself a lot of credit, obviously, for very little. Hurrah for low expectations!
