Two wrongs don't make a right...

I've been terrible about journaling.

This is spring break from work and I've been so busy.

On Monday I went to Jennifer's to make curtains for soon-to-be-big-sister Hadley's new room. Unfortunately my brain turned sideways in my head and instead of making curtains that were 65 inches wide and 45 inches long, they were 45 inches wide and 65 inches long. DUH! Now that seems like you might be able to make it work, but NO! I put this cute bottom border of black and white check fabric with a red with white polka dot piping. I was SUCH a dork! Oh well, I am making it right by making two more panels and all will be right in the world.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but I think 4 wrongs do!! Hahaha!!!

Monday night I drove to Kelly and Scott's and spent Tuesday with them. I had a wonderful time...the kids are so sweet. I left there about 5 am with horrible leg cramps and drove home.

I went to JoAnn's and purchased enough fabric for two more panels (curtains) and I'll make those probably on Friday when Ricky goes golfing.

No pictures in this post either...I've got to get my camera out of the closet and get "clicking"!

Going to WI at WW...hopefully will be another good week.

No picture, emotion pouring forth

I'm really emotional today.

I've been sick and off work since Thursday. I have some respiratory illness and feel like, not a dyslexic slip, just a Freudian thingie. I will be going to work tomorrow, but if I can't manage the whole day I will come home.

The sun is shining and it's beautiful outside. I can get up and do some things, but if I overexert I can't keep going and need to rest. This is troubling to me...makes me feel inadequate. Not a rational thought, I know, but being sick often takes the rational out of you.

I was browsing some blogs earlier and read a post by Victoria at Bumble Beans. She had a really good point about "creating" and how she does some of it. I absolutely love to create. I don't have a ton of confidence in my abstract creations, but her post inspired me. Inspired me to comment on her post and her reply (email version) was very touching.

More emotion...
My daughter told me about a movie titled "Temple Grandin". If you haven't seen it, it's a great movie. I am the grandmother of an autistic grandson. He's just 2+ and he's been receiving help since he was diagnosed just before his 2nd birthday. This movie has given me a different and better understanding of autism. The lightbulb phrase is DIFFERENT, NOT LESS. Somehow I need to contact Temple Grandin and express my emotion to her.

As I write this post tears are still leaving tracks upon my cheeks. As I said earlier in my writings, this blog is for me to journal. This post is from my heart.

To those of you who love me, thank you. To those of you who may occasionally visit my blog and leave a comment, thank you. To those of you who might just stop by and read, thanks for you.

Dear God...Thank you for so many things. Today I ask you to help me. Help me in so many ways that only You can know. You know my heart, You know my needs. Please take my hand and lead me. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
