dusting off

It has been one of those weeks. Let down, overwhelmed, kind of just blah. Because of the week (and past couple weeks) that I have had, I have been laying low because I don't want to let my gloom slip into my blogging. I don't want to be a pity party blogger - I dislike that. 

So here I am, saying "Give me a minute, I'll be right back. Let me get it together." (Also eating ice cream and watching Glee, but who is asking?). 

I am picking myself up, dusting off, and getting on with it. After all, my problems are nothing compared to what is facing those who have gone through the terrible storms in St. Louis (my city), Joplin, the Midwest, and the South. Send a prayer for the families who have been struck by this. I can't even imagine the heartache and loss.

So, I will be back on the proverbial craft horse this weekend. I have like 11 projects I am working on (not exaggerating). Tomorrow I will have 5 things Friday. Saturday I will announce my giveaway winner, and hopefully this weekend and next week I will be able to get some projects posted - embroidery, a table runner, more embroidery, knitting, and other stuff.

On a high and unrelated note, I survived Sawyer's first bleeding injury. He tripped and fell head first into a toy, cutting a gash in his lip with his front tooth. Lots of blood and wooziness (on my part) later, he is fine, acting like nothing happened, and keeps playing with the chunk of skin hanging from his lip (GAG! Sorry I tooootally just grossed you all out). Here's to hundreds more injuries with my wild thing!

See you back here this weekend - it's gonna be a fun one!



  1. I am glad you are feeling better! But hey, we all deserve to have down weeks, right? I can't wait to see what you have been working on.

    Just wait, the yucky bloody moments get worse! My daughter fell and busted her chin open and fat started oozing out. YUCK! Gross then, funny now :)

  2. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling too good. I've had those weeks, too. I think ice cream and Glee are the perfect prescription!


I appreciate each and every lovely comment you leave!
