Need Some Time Off

So. Things are not back to normal after all. Now I am dealing with severe anxiety after a month dealing with chronic pain. I thought that because the pain is gone, because the stent has been removed that it was all behind me. Nope. I have a habit of telling myself, “I can do this!” over and over during stressful situations and after awhile it all catches up with me and anxiety sets in and forces me to deal with the stress after the event.

My hands are shaky, I’m irritable and nervous and can’t seem to focus on anything, even my knitting. Instead of forcing myself to come up with something positive to write about on my blog I am going to take the rest of the week off and just de-stress and try to make a list of stuff to blog about when I am more myself. I hate, hate, hate making posts all about what is bugging me or things that are going wrong. I prefer something interesting or even amusing as well as informative to post so I’ll say, “See ya later alligator.”

Take care. God bless. Do wonderful, marvelous things and enjoy yourselves! Be back soon…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
