Home Therapy

This week has been pretty rough and I am beat! It was hard...knowing *the boy* was leaving to go 3,000 miles away and having to be the one who in a way pushes him away. We both cried our fair share of tears. Both sad and upset at the hand we've both been dealt. The day he was leaving, he asked if he could leave the next day and I had to be the lucid one and say "no". It was already painful. What good would it be to spend one more day together to only go through the same turmoil and emotions the next day? He made it to Rhode Island ok and he's in a funk already about how hot, humid and rainy it is. Oh no, this does not bode well for my upcoming trip!! I don't handle hot, humid or rainy all that well!

We will be apart for five weeks...until I go out for my vacation.

The last couple of days, I have been feeling sad and mopey. No longer is that 6'2" figure on sticks crutching around or chirping in my ear or feeding me. It's quiet...but the quiet is also nice. I haven't felt motivated enough to start my fitness regime. Comfy pants, futon, tv remote and lounging is more my style when I feel blue. I also become restless so it's hard to focus on anything. But these are the things that help me get happy.
My tv remote, netflix, a stitchy project, my current book and a nice beverage. Oops...forgot to put netflix in the picture but you get the idea. All sorts of relaxing type stuff. As you can see...I'm very close to another mini happy dance. Only the border left to stitch on my November block and then I only have one. more. block. to. stitch. OMG...I can't believe I made it this far especially after my whole border derailment! Once this project is done, I am most likely adding the Newton's baby announcement and Mary Wigham to the rotation. Poor Fairy Moon will have to wait a little longer until I can fully concentrate on her.

Ok...going to go finish that border tonight! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Until next time...

Comfy pants and lounging around are good for you!

"These are a few of my favorite things..." ( Sound of Music) I think you deserve this time and I am sure that it will go by fast! You know that you have support, so if need just reach out!
Take care,

Wow, you are so strong to say no to one more day. It would have been so hard to do that day twice.

I am glad that you are doing things that are comferting. Mostly I am glad that you are taking care of yourself on many levels.

Silly question... what is the jar of little threads for? I have done that myself. But, haven't really seen it done by others.

Hopefully, the five weeks will fly by.

Isn't it nice to have those comforts when you're feeling down. How's that book, by the way? Rhode Island is very nice most of the time, so I'm sure your visit will be lovely.
