Switching subjects

Life is so mean! With my FIL in the hospital, and me being a great caregiver my time is being sucked away. I am trying hard but keeping the doctors on point can be draining. Even if I am not in the hospital I am on the phone. As of right now his foot has been removed. He should be in lest pain that he was before. He compare the pain to have an operation without any anesthesia.

When I go to see him later today I am praying that he is in good spirits and has a more positive outlook for 2009. But what a way to start the year.

I recently helped my friend move from her house into an apartment. I was also happy to give her a housewarming gift of a bread maker. She loved it. Until she started using it. She follow the recipe that came with the maker and the bread was.....well not a good as expected. She made me a banana bread and the smell was wonderful. It just made your mouth water. But it was a little dry. She was so disappointed.

She did not give up and re gift. She search and found a recipe that worked!




I smells wonderful and taste delicious! I have enjoyed a piece each day since she gave it to me. I love giving gifts that I can enjoy!

I do not make New Year resolutions because, well for me it is the same as lying to myself.

You know the phrase " Just do it!" Stop waiting for the beginning of the year, or Monday, or tomorrow and just do it! Do it now.
There is so much going on in my everyday life that I have decided tonight I will be in my sewing studio and I will be creating something as the New Year comes in. My hope is that I can be creative all year long if I start the year this way. This does sound like a resolution but I prefer not to think of it that way.

This past year I have made several clothing items but not nearly as much as I have in the past.


I have made some gifts for babies
and I have had lots of ideas on how much I can earn with my crafts. I just need to be more productive.

So that is the plan to be more productive, active and creative.

Switching Subjects.

I think that I need to finish all the Avon training again. My paperwork is all over the place and I am not really paying attention to all the details. How many hours are there in a day? 24 right, so why does it seem like all the successful people have more time? Don't we all get 24 hours or do they get more? I know I am using too many hours sleeping right? oh grief!

No more switching of subjects because I have run out of things to say. But my brain just does not stop.

Be Safe everyone do not over indulge!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
