handholding

Get me out of this place!

I've gone out! I've left the nest! I went to the thrift store (and found a bag that matches Harry's in GoF near to perfectly). I've done massive amounts of cleaning and organizing and now there's nothing more to do other than destroy my sewing room with projects. And oh I have projects.

This mono has warped my entire sense of time. I've got less than a month until ACen. The table stuff is FINE. I'm done with that, except the Star purses that need to be stuffed. Then I'm done.

I need to get cracking on my costumes now, working my best under pressure. I just hope to God I don't get sick again. Just talking on the phone had my voice doing funny things. It's widely known that once you have mono, it's really easy to get it back again for at least the next 6 months, so I should be relaxing. And I will, but I still need to feel somewhat active.

I started working on Irvine. 2 hours later and the chaps are 80% done. I'm ordering the hat now, and then all that's left is the vest, jacket and necklace. I can do this. No problem. I just hope once the steroids wear off I don't lose my productive edge.
