....but joy wins out in the end! The day after my last post, I basically went into hiding. I was in so much pain, emotionally, that I couldn't find the energy to post here, or even much on Facebook. Interacting with anyone beyond my immediate circle of trust was just too much of a struggle. … Continue reading Sometimes the pain wins for a while…
Sleep has been elusive, and I am anxious much of the time. Distractions help, praying and spending time with friends helps a lot. But the anxiousness is draining and exhausting. An encouragement for you tonight.
Arthritis is a pain. Literally. My joints are seriously disliking the cold. Not that it's sub-zero weather here...it's actually quite mild. But wet...and windy. It penetrates right into the bones. I'm still getting things done. Nearly finished with an eternity scarf, and tomorrow I'll finish up my grandmother's flower garden blocks. A little at a … Continue reading Rough week
Not the scifi type, silly. The UnFinished Object type that is taking over my house. So many projects, so little time. I've had to put off a lot of personal projects this year due to work and school, but I've made it a goal to take at least some of my time back this year. … Continue reading UFOs
One of my classes this term is PE, more specifically, bowling. I've always loved bowling and was hoping to get this class, because it always fills up quite quickly. After 2 days of bowling for 2 hours each day, I am SO sore. But a few days off to do other things, and I'll … Continue reading Bowling is fun!
Winter break was just too short this year. In the morning I go back to school (while my daughter doesn't have to start back until Monday...grrr). JTerm should be pretty fun, though...bowling and "Jesus at the Movies". I also scheduled a very light Spring course load so I can spend more time with my family … Continue reading Back to school
2013 has not been the kindest of years. I'm ready to say goodbye to it, and tie some loose ends created by this year. Time to make some changes and move forward.
To say I've been busy for the past several months would be a gross understatement. The past two days, I have spent sleeping as much as possible to recover from the most insane, most stressful, most exhausting four months of my life. Some changes are about to be made in my life, to be revealed … Continue reading Back to the blog
Potato peeling has to be one of the most menial, tedious tasks in the kitchen. Why is it that when I’m doing it for my own family, it’s such a chore, but today it was an absolute joy? The fact that I felt completely out of my element (being in the kitchen is not my … Continue reading Peeling Potatoes
And now we're 2 weeks into the Spring semester. WHEW! That was pretty rough. Got a letter a couple of weeks ago that says I made the Dean's List last semester. It wasn't a goal I had even thought of working toward, but now that I know I can, I will. Classes will probably keep … Continue reading I survived JTerm!
