Good heavens, what a wonky week it has been. I was without my trusty car for 2 days while it was locked inside my garage. I belong to the Artful Hands quilt group here in town. We meet every Wednesday and I was excited that I could go for awhile before I had to be at work.I went out to the garage and the door would not go up. Not panicking yet, I tried several times to open it up. I went back inside and found the box of keys that my landlady gave me four years ago when I first moved in. It is full of keys that I have no idea what they belong to but I tried them all on the garage door to see if I could open it with a key. Nope, not even. I texted my landlady and then decided that I would work on my cross stitching till I had to leave for work. My daughter took me and a friend from work gave me a ride home that night. Thurs my son in law picked me up so I could be at work at 7 a.m. I hate being without wheels and dependent on others for a ride. In the meantime, the landlady and her hubby come over and forced the door up until he could get in and trip a switch so that it overrides the automatic opener and we can manually open it. I walked home from work and with the help of two strong neighbor guys, I got my car out so I have wheels again! The garage door is still not fixed but at least I can get my errands done and go to work.
I am hoping that all is back to normal this next week. We are done with inventory at work so the overtime that the company expected us to work is a thing of the past and now this week the store cut hours to make payroll. My hours were cut 3 hours yesterday so I came home early, did some laundry, and took a nap. Tomorrow I hope to work some more on the Cardinals and I need to cut out some quilt blocks for my Veterans quilt. I am also quilting a customer's top but I've had to rest from that to let my neck heal. Maybe some pictures of my quilt squares will be posted tomorrow - yea! Until then, happy stitching to everyone.
