I amaze myself...

...but not in a good way.

I decided to make another Belle Bag.

Just because.

I dug it out, cut my fabric (left over place mat material) and then couldn't find my instructions.

But I'm positive that I had them when I started. It's not like I haven't made quite a few purses from this pattern and I don't necessarily need the instructions but I like having them anyway and besides; there are some different variations of this bag that I'd like to try some day.

I'm not kidding when I say that I spent over an hour looking for them. I even went through all of my Nicole patterns but no luck!

I'll be able to finish it anyway but I'm still irked with myself!!! Where the hell are my instructions!!!

So did everyone vote?

I had to get up early so that I could vote before work this morning and in all my life I've never seen such long lines. Baby Girl was in line ahead of me looking ever so stylish in her sweat pants, hoodie, and men's bedroom slippers! I can't blame her attire on the 'college life' as she dressed like this in high school too. But at least she's cute and at least she voted. Right?

I couldn't vote after work because I had to go straight to the inn tonight for my waitress shift. It was almost a total waste of my time though as I only had 2 couples show up. What a difference from last Tuesday when I got slammed, the kid on call wouldn't answer his phone, and I had a group of 9 walk out on me!! But, what possesses 9 people to show up at a fine dining restaurant without reservations?

This isn't MacDonald's folks!!

I hate it when that happens! I don't think I've ever lost any instructions, but I have most definitely lost crucial pattern pieces, never to be seen again.

You should have EMAILED ME, Laura. I'll send you some new instructions!!!

I certainly didn't expect you to send me new instructions just because I'm so absent minded! I found your message when I came home for lunch and I've already downloaded them. Thank you! You're tooooo nice.
