Goodbye 2010

A few necklaces I made from my cross stitch squares

Well it is the end of 2010. I am sitting here with Puff. I have just taken 4 ibuprofen, cold meds, sinus meds, lung meds, put hydro cortisone on my eye lids ( I know it causes glaucoma), drank my pumpkin spice coffee, had my lefse with brown sugar and butter, and am catching up on my craft project piles.

What have I learned in 2010.
1. I am not a boy. I don't understand them and they don't understand me.

2. I love to take care of those who need caring for.

3. I wear the same outfit day and night, in public and at home. (as close to PJ's as I can get)

4. Parenting is HARD and is getting harder.

5. Being in a relationship is hard to do when both of you are never with each other.

6. Crafts will pile up and that's ok as long as you are enjoying them.

7. A "clean house" is one with a defined permanent defined path carved out for walking.

8. I am the sick old gazelle but, I feel lucky that I have a place to rest and hide.

9. It's ok to let go.

10.It's ok to hold on.
I hope that I have a great 2011. I would like less drama and more peace. I am planning on taking deep breaths and taking one day at a time. It seems to work good when i do that.

I am going to be reading a daily bible. Hopefully, daily.
I hope for all my friends and readers :-) that you all have a better 2011 than 2010. That way if 2010 was GREAT then 2011 will be FANTASTIC! and if 2010 was a bit of a bummer, then you only have one way to go and that's up!

Happy new year everyone!!

This is a vision that I had. I needed to do a square for it. The left side is my life. Things in order and the flower buds are troubles that occur, but are handleable. The right side is of stress and incoming turmoil. Each color of the buds are represented on the right side. It really was therapeutic to do this square. I have slowly been settling into my new normal, which, by the way, I feel is life for all of us. We go day by day in our life and it is not for us to sit idle and never experience anything good or bad. It's like the quote from Finding Nemo. Dori - "If you didn't let him do anything then he would do nothing....not much fun for little Harpo." K~

Moving on day to day

Signing off

Well as the days go on, we are hanging in there. We have a lot of new routines to keep up going and seeing how things are going to iron out. It's like riding a wave around here.
Here's a new square.
Kind of reminds me of the stripes on a TV channel that has signed off... Thus the name. K~
