Sorry for not putting up an entry last week!
So, the past few weeks have been ups and downs of jobs, and last week was quite a busy one so my weekly post was mostly forgotten... Whoops!
A lot of stuff is happening this week, and has happened even since Sunday. I found out yesterday that a good friend of mine from college passed away. It's apparently too soon to find out details of what happened, but I am wishing him well. His funeral is this weekend, and I will be attending. My mother describes her side of the family as the show "Six Feet Under," but with less story. Funeral home families are interesting.
ALSO, this weekend is my dad's 59th birthday! I blame him for a lot of my learning to tinker at a young age, so, he's probably a big part of the reason why I got into sewing machine repairs. He's also in IT, so, I can blame him for a lot of my side work dealing with network and phone equipment. Good job, Dad, look at the monster you helped create!
Moral of this story, you can really never escape your past, but you can use it to mold how you treat your future. Both of my parents instilled a want to learn new skill sets in their monster of a child, and that has pretty much stuck throughout my life.
Thank you, Mom and Dad!
Your sewing machine guy:
I am a Jack-of-Most-Trades that was roped into working on sewing machines, and managed to find a knack for it. I love hilarity, fixing things that are broken, video games, dogs, cats, most other creatures, and sleep. Especially sleep. On here you'll usually find tidbits about recent visits or ADORABLE CREATURES THAT LOVE ON ME WHILE I WORK. There may be ancient machines, there may be unique machines.
