Possibly Another Addiction

It started out as a normal morning.

I woke up as Robert was leaving the house this morning. I had the day off and my plan was to make the most of it. I was going to do some cleaning around the house, take a walk around the neighborhood, read some, maybe work on some projects that I have been putting off. It was supposed to be a very productive, yet relaxed day.

First thing in the morning I always check my email, the weather, and the handful of sites to which I am extremely loyal. This morning, however, with nothing in particular to pull me away from the computer, I decided to "surf" the web for a while. After a few games of Scrabble online, I got bored.

It is at this point that everything becomes blurry. Before I knew it, I had tracked down some supercraft website. I haven't crafted for years *those of you who are close to me probably have some relics from that time in my life I refer to as "high school."* It seems one of the major trends in "hipster crafts" *possibly an oxymoron* is clothing reconstruction. This process requires old clothes, sometimes a sewing machine, and a lot of creativity.

Like a mad woman, I pulled all of my old clothes out of the closet from the "give away" pile and threw them on the living room floor. I felt like Edison right before he discovered electricity, Bell when he got the idea for the telephone, the Olsen twins when they were on Full House. I knew I was on the verge of something amazing.

This is my cat, Mackie Di Pippo.

He now has a hat that was once the sleeve of my favorite sweater. I swear I don't know how it happened. One thing just led to another. I am very sorry.

But you just wait, I really will make something great. Something.
