A Slice of Life: Last week was one of emotional overload – so much so, I pretty much made myself sick. Thus, Friday ended up being a day of rest and on Saturday, I got up and started walking forward again. Along the way, however, I must have bent over or picked up something (a laundry basket perhaps) the wrong way, because I “jarred” my back, which caused me to move slowly and carefully for the rest of the weekend. While I don’t feel like doing cartwheels or anything, it feels better today.
As for overload, sometimes it seems as if it is easier to deal with the big things than it is a lot of little things. Or, perhaps one should deal with the little things as they arise, because then, they would not accumulate and turn into something more than they are. Who knows? Certainly not me. If I had it all figured out, I’d be writing a syndicated advice column and doing interviews on Oprah. LOL.
Husband started his annual truck-driving sugar beet gig on Friday. Just as I was thinking today about the fact that they had gone for four days in a row without rain, they shut down at noon today, because it is too warm for the beets to be piled. They will spoil. Too hot. Too cold. Too wet. What a touchy crop and a good example of why I had no desire to be a farmer and/or a farm wife. LOL.
I am incredibly busy at work. I was informed they are hoping they will have new people hired so I can start my new job by mid-November. It cannot be soon enough for me. While I have done my best to make the best of a bad situation these past few months, now that I know I am soon out of there, I am chomping at the bit.
This is a photo of the wool felt table runner I mentioned a few weeks ago. I finally finished it yesterday – not because it was difficult but rather because I am such a pathetic perfectionist, I had ripped out that blanket stitching around the edges about a hundred times before finally making up my mind to just “do it.” Once that determination was made it was fun, and although it is really a very simple project, I really felt as though I had accomplished something when it was finished.
How have you been? I hope you forgive me for not only being a bad blogger but a lousy blogging buddy. I am going to visit everyone this evening and am anxious catch up on what you have been doing. I hope my visits find everyone healthy, happy, and creating up a storm. Take care, friends, and thanks for stopping by.
