I'm Back!

Hello my lovelies...I'm back! Did you all miss me? I missed you all. Apparently lots happened while I was gone and I came back to a majillion posts to catch up on and it's taken me days!

New York...was amazing! I had a wonderful time and have some writing to do and photos to resize to share with you all. The weather cooperated and I was freaking out for nothing. I walked so much...I should be down to 100 pounds! Yea, who am I kidding!

Things since my return have been a bit sad with the death of good friend's dad, some worries about job stability and feeling like I've been hit by a truck exhausted.

I just wanted to let you all know I had fun and got home safely but am in a quiet mood with very little stitching going on since I've been either burrowed under blankets or sleeping in my spare time due to this tiredness. If I'm getting sick...let it happen already! Much too busy to be this tired and not feeling entirely myself.

I am here...keeping up on blogs and forever behind with emails and always thinking on you all even if I'm a little quiet and otherwise mentally preoccupied with the little curveballs that life throws. Hug your loved ones tight and often. I give you all a virtual *hug*.

Until next time...

Glad you had a good time in NYC! Bummer about things being yucky on your return. I feel like we're just hoping for the best all the time these days with one thing after another happening. Not a good time somehow. Hope things turn up for you and you get less tired.

Sorry to hear that things have been unsettled since your return--especially sad to hear about your friend's dad and your job uncertainty. You take good care of yourself now--I think we all feel extra tired and worn out at this time of year and need to give ourselves a bit more TLC than normal :)

Welcome back! I'm glad you had a good trip to NY. Sorry about the death... it's always so sad. :( Job security... I haven't had that in at least 5 years. And since the merger, it looks bleaker and bleaker.
