A Productive Weekend

In the process!
              What a productive weekend!  I’ve been learning to sew sugar glider pouches.  It was smooth sailing once Mama showed me how to use the zipper foot.  One side was fairly easy to sew then the other side of the zipper kept getting stuck…  I couldn’t figure out what was going on because everything looked right.  Turns out, I hadn’t slid the foot over to the other side.  It was one of those moments that made me feel incredibly silly.  Oh well, everything turned out well.

First Pouch Done!
            This is an effort to eventually open an Etsy store.  Since I have to rely on rides at the moment, it would be terribly inconvenient for my family if I got a regular job.  So, I am getting creative!  My parents have been awesome about lending recommendations so, hopefully, I will have some income coming in soon.  On the up side, my semester is all sorted out.  I was able to arrange all the classes around the same time as my younger brother.  He has been sweet about me riding along and was insistent I not take a break from school.     

              The PT exercises are definitely not easy.  They have me doing what should be simple stuff but most certainly isn’t at the moment.  My next session is tomorrow so, hopefully, my very detailed record of what each day brought will help direct her in the right direction, so she can help even farther.  This has brought about hope.  It is a relief when you are trying to explain what is happening to your doctor and they can finish the explanation for you because they know exactly what is happening.  It is always disheartening when they have no clue what you are talking about.  Thankfully, this Physical Therapist not only seems to know what is happening but was even able to ask about certain symptoms I hadn’t mentioned yet.
