For many people, technology is addictive. They just can't figure out how they lived with out their IPhone, Blackberry, etc. I felt that way for awhile, but when Hubby and I cut costs, one of the first things we did was ditch the cell phones. It's very liberating. We can be out of the house without people bugging us. We do have one shared cell phone, which Hubby's parents pay for because it was just $10 a month to add a line to their plan.
So I'm not a technology junkie. I would love an IPhone, but I can certainly live without it. What I have learned in the last few weeks that I can't live without is my sewing kit. Yes, my sewing kit.
Ever since we moved, I have been looking for the darn thing. We found it once, but when I needed it, I couldn't remember where I put it for "safekeeping." So for years I have been searching boxes and closets, trying to figure out where I put it.
A few weeks ago I decided I wouldn't give up until I found it. Interestingly enough, it only took me a five minutes to find it. My girls were delighted when I triumphantly brought my sewing kit downstairs. Then they proceeded to pile any and every toy that needed mending on the coffee table. That day I repaired a princess costume, a pillow pet, a pillow, a heffalump and a hat. Since then I've been finding odds and ends that need mending.
As crazy as it sounds, it's wonderful to have my sewing kit back. It's also nice that the girls are no longer telling people "(fill in the blank) has a hole in it and Mommy can't fix it." Guess I should have put more effort into finding the sewing kit a lot sooner!
