Victory!


You should know this about me:

I'm a painfully slow learner

I dread trying new things (besides eating new things)

I get exasperated and frustrated extremely easy

I often give up

But a goal was set and I wrote it down, and gave myself some accountability. So we watched the Singer dvd, and paused, and went back 48 times, and yelled at the lady for going too fast. Hurdle number 1 was actually finding the beginning of the the thread. I could have totally just given up right there. I called Maria - she helped! We threaded the bobbin. The boys tried to not touch the sewing machine. Hannah gave me encouraging words. We threaded the machine and needle. (BTW Mom, I think that auto needle threader is broken.) But we persevered. I overcame my helplessness and indifference today. We sewed! And it was kinda fun. Thank you very much.

*taking a bow*

Well then. Now we're spending the rest of the day in our cozy, messy house. A fort is in my living room, the sky is gray, and noses are being constantly wiped. And now I shall have tea time. Red raspberry leaf, if you 'd like to know. :)

And today is one of those days I'm not gonna clean until at least half an hour before Daddy comes home. Also, in my Real Simple magazine there is a whole article in there about procrastination. It said to do the worst thing first. Sewing. Done. And it wasn't so bad. :)

My name is khajohn, My husband dumped me two weeks ago after I accused him of seeing

someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any

contact with me. I was so confuse and don't know what to do, so I reach to the internet

for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help people to get their ex back so I

contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and

assure me of 48hours that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third

day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is

back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you Dr.

Sambola, You are truly talented and gifted. Email: drsambola@aim.com is the only answer.

He can be of great help and I will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man
