One of the things I was surprised to see again and again at monuments and museums in Paris was what I would call "the goofy shot." So many people took pictures that looked like they were leaning on, grabbing, dancing with, knocking down a site or sculpture. It was hilarious - and something that never would occur to me. Here's my ode to the "goofy shot."
When Robbie hurt himself with Mom's sewing machine, I became totally terrified of this machine. I remember in home-ec just wanting to run out of the class because it scared me so. I have used a sewing machine with less fear since but it is rare. I am determined to not only get over my fear of this machine but really learn how to use it. I am so tired of clothing not fitting me properly. I want to learn the basics of sewing and learn how to make a shirt that is long enough and not too tight for my body. Make pants that fit well so I don't look like a wanna-be rapper. This terrifies me to write, so I obviously have got to do it and you are the first to hear about it!
