The sewing machine is jammed. I think I have to bring it in for professional help. I may have to accept this as a standard procedure.


The Pumpkins on the Pier thing really did me in. Mostly it was the standing and bending and so on, wearing my Dorothy shoes. They pinched, particularly my right foot, and I ended up nearly limping. More than one person could see I was somewhat limited in movement. I also had to bring up a degree of perkiness! God! ME! I don't do that well. But got through it. It's a cool event. Lots of work goes into it. Joey would have loved it.

Halloween candy

I bought four bags of candy for Halloween. I thought it would be good to get it while I was at the market. But now I look at them, sitting on the table, calling to me. I can see it. Open one, have one little candy. Then two. Then three. Then talk to myself about how tomorrow is a new start and have four and five. Not gonna happen.

I went to bed early but lay there, tossing around, and finally got up and took a hot bath. I was starting to get a headache. It's gone now. And I am watching ER. Oh yeah, after finishing a movie on LifeTime about a hostage sitch.
