OMG, TotalBabe @TotalBabe brought out the lost art called Handwriting! Good job and legible!

Is it me or does it seem like that since we type and swipe so much today that our handwriting looks tons worse than it did years ago when we would do a lot more writing?

My handwriting is complete garbage but always has been. I’m impatient when writing, and now the with addition of arthritis in my right thumb and constant pain, I can’t be bothered most of the time

My mother had beautiful handwriting. She went to catholic school and they taught her writing by making spiral circles between the lines (like tunnels across the page).

I have nice handwriting - too.

My daughter just recently 'taught' herself to read script. I've been urging her to at least learn how to sign her name - she was never taught script - so she prints everything :(

I remember learning script in 3rd grade. I think people should learn some script.

OTOH, in another century - we might hardly be writing at all (all voice to text). It might be a dying art..........

Good Morning!

So, I went a little crazy yesterday and ripped up the awful carpet that covered the stairs. I've wanted to do it for some time, but I just never got round to it. I was sitting there looking at it, and I just couldn't stand it anymore. I just went over there and started pulling it up. After I was done, I had to go purchase a palm sander and sand the crap out of what was underneath and then prep and stain it.... I did every other stair, so today I have to work on the ones that didn't get done yesterday...It looks pretty good, but imo, anything was better than that awful carpet! - oh, and I have to finish cleaning up the thin layer of dust that is on everything in between bouts of turking...
