Hurry Up And Wait

Tonight I was reading something that said impatience is not the absence of patience, it's a separate entity.  I am not sure I agree with that.  I am not exactly a patient person.  That's not to say I lose my patience, but I like action.  When I am ready to do something, I am ready to do it now.  Why wait?

The past few days I have been working like a mad woman!  I had so much to get done for this upcoming show.  It had to be done by 1 AM my time.  I got done around 6 PM.  It's killing me not to be able to show you the nine new pieces! 

After I finished making, distressing, dressing, photographing and uploading the pics of the bears to the show page I cleaned  up the disaster area that is known as my work space.

It looked like a bomb exploded in the middle of a tornado in here.  There was ribbon, charms, sewing supplies and stuffing everywhere.  Once I got it all put away, I didn't know what to do with myself.


I never get bored.  There is always something to be done.  The thing is, I am not 25 anymore and working this hard for so many days in a row took it's toll on me, so I wasn't up to anything too strenuous.  No one was online to chat with in the middle of the night.  So what to do?  I wasn't sleepy.  I didn't feel like watching TV or reading.

I ended up making origami stars for two hours.  I finally had to stop because my fingers hurt.  I don't know if you have ever made origami stars, but the points poke your fingers while you crimp them.  They are cute though aren't they? 

Basically this is a pointless post because this is what Kelly looks like bored.  I am showing you the stars because we aren't allowed to show the bears for the sale beforehand.  The show doesn't start until Friday afternoon and I don't have anything else to do.  Well...actually I do, I have orders but my back and neck aren't up to starting those yet.  Thankfully I have an appointment with the new chiropractor Monday afternoon for an adjustment.  I hope he is good.  He has assured me he isn't a nervous sort of guy for which I am quite happy because I don't want to put my trust in another doctor and then have them tell me something like that. 

Oh and before I forget, I want to follow up on my last post.  As it turns out, I am not quite so alone as I thought.  I got so many e-mails from people who have the same or similar types of brains as I do.  I want to thank you all for those, and apologize for not being able to respond since I was working so fast and furious.  There is some definite comfort in knowing you aren't alone.  So the question is, have there always been so many of us, or have things changed somewhere along the line and people are just getting smarter and better at memory retention as a whole?

I guess I will go wander around my big empty house some more.  Because sadly...I am still bored.

Haven't you got some knitting to pick up or some books to read. Something to indulge yourself with, because you worked so hard. May be a bubble bath. Ha Ha...

I can't knit to save my life. My head hurt too much to read and I did take a bubble bath...I think it's finally time for bed!

I make the paper stars when I have down time too... they're a fun thing to include in packages XD

I can't knit to save my life either, and I'd love to know how :(

I haven't tried the memory test yet, because I need to do it at home where I can see the video!

It's supposed to be a beautiful day, maybe just get out in the yard. I know I'm wondering a bit what to do with myself now that I'm all done with my show bears. My son said to take some days off. Buuuut, easier said than done. I may just tinker with patterns or start a bear for him. He has fallen in love with one of the show bears. . . . Have a great show Kelly!!!
