At the Riverbend Festival this year we stopped and had this picture taken for free next to Mark Martin's number 6 car. Eddie is a Richard Petty fan (notice the 43 on his cap), and I'm a Dale Earnhardt, Jr. fan, but since neither of those cars were available, we decided, what the heck. It's free.
I've been working on cleaning up my sewing room this week. I can't wait to get it back in shape so I can use it again. Over the past couple of years, ever since the construction on the sunroom, it has become a catchall room. You know, one of those rooms where things get tossed when trying to clean up the house. Or, someone calls and says they're coming over in 5 minutes (if you're lucky enough that they call first) and you're trying franticially looking for a convenient place to put stuff to get it up out of sight. It's the room where you keep the door shut and hope that no one opens it either by accident or on purpose. I've had that happen to me twice within the past week. The first time my cousin opened it by accident, and the second time my friend opened it just to see what the fuss was all about. I had been bemoaning the shape it was in and I guess she was curious. I don't feel too badly, though, because her sewing room was once in almost as bad a shape as mine. She said if she can get hers back in order, I can get straighten mine out too. And I'm doing it, little by little. And I'm beginning to see some progress, but I still have a long way to go.
