Maybe I should clarify. With some things I have no patience; traffic, restaurants (though I'm minutely better than my husband) rude people, stupid people, computers...the list goes on and on. You get the idea. And for this I don't really apologize. I go through life making every attempt to obey the law, be polite and considerate, and pay my bills. I expect others to do the same and I'm disappointed quite a bit these days. Turn signals are a thing of the past, no one uses their inside voice in restaurants (maybe I should say that the outside voices are the new inside voices) and everyone seems to have given their children carte blanche to behave badly.
Is it any wonder I like to stay home and plan things to do that involve minimal outside contact?
I do have patience with some things. For instance I know that unless I'm Tony Stark a dollhouse isn't built in a day. I can happily spend days sewing tiny jointed teddy bears by hand. I spent months making doll clothes for my niece's doll. (Actually that required my husband's patience more than mine, but you get the idea.)
That doesn't mean that I don't put the cart before the horse now and then. See the dollhouse is still in its two boxes. I'm still trying to figure out the dimensions for the protective/display case to keep the dollhouse in. (Yeah that sentence was grammatically ugly, I know, get off my back.) And yet...I've now purchased two dolls and another piece of furniture for the dollhouse. The results of my folly are displayed below.
|A nice Victorian lady.|
|See, a very nice Victorian man.|
|I only had one bureau and the bedroom is pretty big soo...|
See what I mean? Cart before the horse. No patience... Eh, what's life without whimsy right?
But I am pretty excited about some other stuff I bought. Had this great idea for hats...for the dolls in the dollhouse... see the lady doll I bought has removable clothes...so wouldn't it be nice that she have a new hat? Something in keeping with the Texas climate I think... Hmm...
Yeah... I know. For someone with an Associates degree in Accounting I really don't seem too organized do I?
I never claimed to be normal. Or sane.
But at least I'm not boring.
