Today, I emptied the trash and it may have cost me a job. I accidentally deleted 700 files from my computer only moments before they were to be turned in. Tomorrow, I hope to either be rescued or to somehow rescue myself for free.
Notes to consider: I was 2 feet from my external hard drive when this happened. No, it had not been used for it's sole purpose for ten at least days. On it were the first 200 files I worked on. So, that is good BUT I can't find any file recovery freeware for Macs.
Also, I am broke! Everyone is. There is no hundred dollar program solution to this problem. Free is my only friend.
I will post when I find a solution.

furniture online or are too pregnant to move things around. Plus, you can pick out details that look like the stuff in your home. Look at my living room! I'm making the switch this week. Thrilling.

- 600 files left until this leg of work is done.
- Figure out my round needles. Practice knitting washcloths.
- Kill the mouse (or knit it a scarf).
- Fabric Lab Art Show in June. Ideas: collage, drawings, photo.
- Folk Art! Loneliness!
I am getting worse at seclusion. If I could escape for a while, like I used to, I might do fine, but for now, I have spent countless days in this house with my son. I miss drawing in peace until my eyes broke. Its too lonely for a person like me, without family and everyone else so busy. A visitor would keep me sane. If this keeps up I might be looking for a new place or a new city soon. Its getting harder to be in a room with my mate. I need conversation, family, love and someone to cook for me.

Our peaceful, little Goya, who spends most his days eating dust, joyously licking the spot where his testicles used to be, got messed up today, this very Easter Sunday. There was blood everywhere! One of Chuckie's mom's dogs, Blue, took a chunk out of his ear. That little Blue bomb was set to go off and Goya just didn't see it coming. Poor thing, it's his first big battle and he didn't win.

I didn't like the original farm pattern, but I liked the bones, so, I covered it in a nice aqua and turquoise print, followed by a plastic protective layer.
At first, I thought it would be a fast, staplegun job, but I found the seat base and back impossible to penetrate. I ended up using about fifty carpet tacks, one at a time, whenever Miles' naps allowed me. Alas! If I did this over again, I would get new foam cut for a cleaner result. As is, it looks a lot better and was free.
I will post the final product, with him eating in it.
