Last night I was watching “Two Tarts & Their Starts“, the ladies from The Attic. They were talking about Carolyn’s mom, who is 86 years old, and she just learned to cross stitch and she’s loving it.
That made me smile because I was thinking . . I should buy more charts! I had figured I might cross stitch til I’m 77 years old but that doesn’t give me time to get everything done that I’ve purchased but .. if I can cross stitch til I’m 87 years old . . I need more charts!
Raise your hand if you think Vince is going to buy into that line of thinking. OK . . that’s what I thought. No hands are raised.
Yesterday I was reading about the cost of living increase for social security and I was calculating and thinking . . I can buy more cross stitching supplies but then I read that the increase may cause social security to go broke a year sooner than they’ve been projecting. Vince is probably thinking we should stop spending and save for when/if social security is cut and I’m thinking . . I’d better spend more while we have it coming in! 🙂
I’m not real concerned – nothing I can really do about it anyway. But I thought it was worth sharing that Carolyn’s mom is cross stitching. Carolyn said she and her mom cross stitch together every night and sometimes, they cross stitch til midnight! That’s how I want to live when I’m 86. Stay up half the night and sleep half the day! 🙂
