So, then what have I been up to?
I made a tutorial for an easy cat costume for Halloween here. I have written my second chapter and now waiting it's return, hoping I improved, even if just a little. Nothing worse than thinking your taking their advice only to find you haven't learned a thing. I have also added a line to my business and started making decorative pillows which you can find at By L.A.C.E. as well.
I am still raising money for Bobby's Fund over at Reece's Rainbow, check out Jane's blog post over at Forget-Me-Nots on the Flight Platform. If we get to $3,000 raised, I'm on of the people going to dye my hair the colour of a rainbow. Yep, you still get another chance to see that one happen.
I am working on a priority list instead of a to do list. I find to do lists leave me finishing my small stuff, while never getting to the important stuff. I cleared so much off my plate within a week during this process. This last week I've been slacking. I'm experiencing a ton of anxiety. I have a surgery coming up on the twenty-ninth and I'm nervous about the recovery time, how it will affect my job, my kids, my husband, my life. I need the surgery, but it still has me trippin'.
My husband had to be rushed to emergency. One of the most creepiest and scariest moments in my life. He's fine now, but we were scared there for a bit. We don't know if it was an allergic reaction to our cat or his contact got stuck and scratched his eye. Not something either one of us wants to experience ever again.
My eldest has done well with his schooling. The best marks I've seen from him in four years. So proud. My other two are excelling in their classes as well. I'm just feeling overwhelmed by life, but bored if that makes any sense. Yeah, I don't get it either. One minute I can't catch my breath and cannot move one more step. Then after about 15min, my mind is roaming and saying, "do something damn it. You've got this to do and that to do, and this game is boring." One day I'm hoping I'll be able to slow down, even if it's just a little bit. And not because my body is falling apart because I'm old and brittle.
So here we are. Right here. So much behind me, and so much to look forward too. I wonder what the next couple of months will bring. And hoping the Mayans are wrong, I have plans for 2013. The world ending doesn't fit into those plans.
