That "Do something drastic" feeling?

Do you ever get the feeling to "do something drastic"?

Like....a daring new haircut, or rearrange a room, or get a tattoo?

Ok......maybe not the last one.

About once a year I get the feeling to do something drastic. To make a change. Get out of a rut. However you want to put it. That's how I feel right now!!!

Perhaps it's the unheard of frigid temperatures that have gripped the deep South, keeping me indoors, and driving me crazy!

Maybe it's the 15lbs I've gained since last Christmas.

It could be because it's Saturday and I just feel like it.

Whatever the reason, I've got the itch! The only problem is, I don't know what I want to do!

Oh, the list is a mile long of things I NEED to do......clean house, do laundry, set up my monogram machine, paint my toenails......but I feel like I need to do something drastic. Something to greatly improve my mood. I've been known to sit down in my stylists chair (she's done my hair for 15 years) and when she says "What are we doing?" I say "I don't care, just make me feel better than I did when I came in!!" And she does! So maybe I'll just go get a haircut. But, Britt hates my hair short though. And really, I love the length it is now. It's perfect for both curly and straight. So I guess that's out.....unless I can't come up with anything else!

I really want to take the furniture out of our guest room and turn it into a sewing room. No one ever sleeps in that bed, or even goes in there for that matter!! It is actually the dogs room. Sad, I know. We even refer to it as "Bentley's room". He sleeps in a playpen in there. My goal is to set all my sewing machines up......regular one, surger, and monogram, and buy a project/hobby/cutting table. I really want to start sewing again. I sewed alot for the kids when they were little, but just kind of stopped. My goal is to start making curtains and bedding.....first for myself....then perhaps as a side job!

I want to redo Carlie's room too. She got a new bed, but she needs paint, and bedding (why I need to do sewing room first!).

Maybe my mood will improve. Or maybe this feeling to do something radical will pass. I hope so, because it looks like I'm going to have to get a tattoo, since I can't think of anything else!

Yeah funny we must have the same mood going.To bad we can't think of anything crazy to do together. Ok you know what I mean, at the same time. I was thinking of going to the tanning bed. I know I live on the edge. LOL

Hurry! Then maybe I can come to your house and sew! I need some space! And you can teach me how to use MY serger!
