How do you guys deal with set-backs? You have all these plans and then somehow it all unravels. I pulled out my embroidery machine, did one design and realized I wasn't in the mood to do anything even though I wanted to make something.
I thought about doing another quilt but it required a zillion 2 inch wide strips and just didn't have the effort to go there. And I'm not about to spend 80 bucks on a 2 inch die for the Go! Cutter. I got over the novelty of that real fast.
A couple of people had some great boxes for cutting out on either my Cricut or Cougar but that means pulling them off the shelf and finding paper. It seems too much of an effort to hook it up the computer and hope the machines don't eat your fancy paper.
I've even hit a brick wall with cycling. I'm tired of my thighs burning all the time despite waiting several days to let them rest up. A mile in and it's like my thighs suddenly ate lead for lunch. I'm sick of hauling my fat butt up 3 mile hills and then have to turn around and do it again to get back home. The last trip had a 200 foot difference in elevation. That totally sucks the air right out of you.
Then I realized my stupid front skewer was loose from bouncing around all the gravel halfway home. I'm lucky the front tire didn't come out from under me. Stupid bike. It's cursed. That's all I need, another concussion. I'm about ready to sell it and then other two bikes and have done with cycling. I'm too fat, too slow and making it more than few miles hurts. It sucks reading that some guy twice as fat after a couple of weeks is doing 20+ miles and I'm gasping at 10 a year after starting. I can do 20, but I pay for it in the end with being sick for two days. No wonder we all hate exercise. It's a reminder that you suck at that too.
