One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other


This is another "get 'er done" post
This chair in my studio gets a lot of use.
Both sides looked like the left one 
before I thought to snap a pic.
Around 11 pm last night I decided I had put off fixing
these arms long enough, as in YEARS. I knew it was a quick fix
and I was tooling right along, covering the damaged
"PLEATHER", and glued it all back together....
 until I hit the last of four bolts
holding the arms on..
Over 30 minute later and many, many, many, 
curse words later, I went to bed.
Tried again today and poof, went right together.





I was feeling pretty smug and pleased
 until I tried to download pics into new "photos"
on my new Mac.
Dropbox kicked up a mighty storm for some 
freaking unknown reason and 2 hours later
on the phone with Apple Care my brain exploded.
Can we all agree we 50+ somethings 
have a steeper learning curve with techno crap?
sigh 

Just sent out my first class announcement
for September.
 It's been 2 years since my last class, so
we'll see how it goes.
I keep forcing myself to face
new challenges, and deal with dignity
when life disappoints.
It's all a journey and I am NOT 
in first class seating, ha!

I find I must 'walk away' and then come back. My frustration level goes from 1 to 100 pretty quickly these days. The chair looks awesome! Techie stuff truly drives me nuts! XOXO

Exactly. Over 60 only gets worse.

At least you tackled the chair and came out winning. I have been circling the sofa for days now, trying to convince myself that I CAN make a slipcover for it. Uh-huh. I haven't put a zipper in anything since high school.

Love your spirit and ability to take on challenges, Z.
Hugs,
Lin

Great job! I'm too lazy or impatient or something for that kind of project. Good for you -

I doubt I would have even 'thought' about changing the arm fabric on the chair! You did fabulous!! Computer stuff can certainly be a challenge but I do enjoy making myself learn new things!! Have a super upcoming weekend! Blessings, Cindy
