Update in the form of a Rant

By on January 24, 2013

Yes, I’m nuts, feeling totally overwhelmed and crazed. Basically happy though. I’m having my peri-menopausal PMS and it’s kicking my butt yet again. It’s like there’s no one in charge down there! The inmates, in the form of aging hormones, are truly running the asylum.

That may well be all I have to say…

I got a new computer. I love it.. *her*. It’s not weird to talk to your computer and tell her you love her, is it? It would be weird to tell your actual child that she has a new sister and so I didn’t do that.

See, sane.

I need to exercise and I need to stop eating sugar.

I’m doing my first Craft Fair and even though I know it’s no big deal, I’m a bit upside-down about it. Who am I really? What is the point of the things I make and why would anyone want them?

I also saw an Etsy store yesterday where the artist had done a couple of things I really liked…. things I wish I’d done…. and it left me feeling like a poser.

Em is doing great. School is great and she’s still perfection in a 5 1/2 year old human.

Our escrow is still on track to close in February, but nothing is sure until it’s done of course.

I’m officially and totally committed to my Homeopathy school. This is a great thing… when I can schedule it in of course.

And now I’m going to get on my elliptical machine (still in the garage in the middle of boxes) and I’m going to sweat until I’m feeling happy again.

But just before I do, here are a few photos of the good stuff!

    Welcome back! :) Your pictures are adorable. Yay for a new computer! Totally normal to call it “her”. LOL

    Oh, that Em is perfection, absolutely. Those bursting with personality expressions get me every time.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling at your most excellent, but it does sound like all is coming together. Your art is YOUR art, and it’s extraordinary because it comes directly from your beautiful heart, so go to that craft fair and shine, you hear?

    Thrilled to see you back in this space, by the way!

    Vulnerability is a bitch, isn’t it? But this is how we grow. (It would be nice if we could do it without the heebie-jeebies, though.)

    As someone blessed to have pieces of your beautiful work, I can assure you that you will hold your own with anyone else. You ARE enough!

    Just wanted you to know that I’m sitting here in a room with just my kitties, laughing out loud at the photos of your ham of a daughter. Five and a half is such a blessed age.
