Thoughts On Thrusday

It's been a week since I've written a post. I just don't don't have anything to write about.
While I was out running errands today a friend called me and we agreed to meet for coffee (she had coffee, I had my usual, an iced chai). While we were talking she says "You don't seem happy."
Guess I'm not, guess that's why I haven't felt like writing. Often, if I'm depressed or upset I don't like to write. I'm not inviting you to a pity party or looking for sympathy, just trying to explain.

Christmas was stressful, my step son refused to come to any family events. He's depressed for a couple of reasons and it's not getting any better. I'm worried but not overly so. 
Right around New Year's day I developed the same chest cold and cough that hubby and grandson J had. A couple of evenings I went to be early and slept for 12 hours. I'm feeling better now.
Last Thursday hubby came home and was CRABBY and angry with me for something......
This went on for a couple of days and I don't know what it was about and never will. He DOES NOT discuss anything. Sure, you're thinking 'make him sit down and talk to you' ain't gonna happen...he does not talk!!! 'It' just gets shelved.............
Even though less than 10 harsh words were said  I was still upset and after any argument I have a sort of 'hangover' and just don't feel like myself.

This week has been frigid, the schools were closed for 2 days. I remember that happening 18 years ago when my step-kids were in school. I went out one day because I had to work, otherwise I stayed inside, no make up and wore my sweats...... I kinda liked it.

So life has been pretty darn quiet here.
I think it's getting back to normal now. I worked my normal days.....middle of the week holidays are a pain.....
Tomorrow I am going to Appleton to Archivers to take a class for my Cameo. I'm pretty excited-I get to learn more about my new toy and it's my favorite scrapbooking store. But....they are going out of business. I am so bummed....I LOVED that store! My bff and didn't get there often but we sure had fun when we did take a road trip there. This will be my last visit :-(   
I don't plan on buying much, if anything, now that I have my Cameo I don't need much.
Wish me luck and safe driving............I'll try to report back in a day or 2.


  1. Linda- I am so sorry. Sounds like you have had a bummer of a few weeks here. Hopefully, the new Cameo and lessons on using it will cheer you up. You can always blog about things that you create from there. I am sorry to hear that store is closing. Sad to see those places go. Wishing you a safe trip and a better new week- xo Diana

  2. Hi Linda, You are truly amazing and so inspiring! Love that you are giving back. I send you a HUGE hug on this Thanksgiving holiday and I am grateful for being your blogger friend! Little by little, I will be redecorating our house and I look to your blog for ideas.
    Great Information

  3. Your pictures are beautiful! I think our weather and the "different" weeks (with the holidays in the middle) have a lot to do with how we feel. I love not having to go out but I am feeling "lost" without my hectic schedule.
