Sewing Day and other Domestic Activities

Yesterday, the darling husband stayed home from work because he was sick.  He thought he had strep and called the doctor.  They were so busy, they just called in some antibiotics and of course, gave the speech about resting and drinking plenty of fluids.  You know the drill...Anyway, his being home unexpectedly was very distracting and I seemed unable to complete my usual tasks in any kind of efficient mannter.  Plus, because he was home, my mom, who lives with us, stayed hidden in her rooms all day, so I felt sorta guilty about that.   I also felt the need to ...more
