I Long To Make Art... or Craft Something!

Drama, mayhem and everyday crap!  Drama is having a 17 year old with an 18 year old boyfriend who has unimaginable drama in his home life, which of course, spills over into ours.  Then the mayhem of murder in a small town, a shooting in the same town, guns in school where my child is and strep throat that turns into pink eye.  Then pile that on to my new job, mounting bills from being unemployed, moving (still unpacking and sorting, by the way) and selling/attempting to sell stuff while downsizing.  I'm not sure why I'm so tired... ha!

So why am I sitting here smiling?  No, I didn't lose my marbles.   I just feel incredibly blessed to have a job, even if it's seasonal, have a child who is more than I could have wished for, a roof over my head (even if I'm not sure how to pay the rent), a vehicle to drive (even though it needs a tune-up and new tires), a loving family and wonderful friends.

Now, if I could just find time to get back to creating...


  1. Creating definitely is a de-stresser, but ack and the 18 year old drama boy! Can you tell her to focus on her studies and wait until she finds a dude who isn't living at home and doesn't have drama baggage to sidetrack her? (Other people's drama affecting my life irks me)

    PS Your blog is so pretty :)

  2. Thanks so much Penelope! But she's in luuuuhhhve!!! And she makes good grades. And she knows EVERYTHING. I know my Mom's smiling down on me and whispering "paybacks"... lol
