Not what I had in mind

It’s no surprise when things don’t work out the way we plan them. It’s just a surprise when almost everything goes wrong!

I’m tired of us being grumpy and gloomy. I’m tired of being tired all the time. I gave up on doing things, fun things, because staying in bed seemed the best thing to do. I won’t complain about me sleeping and getting a good night’s rest, but I don’t feel any better when I wake up (even after 16 hours, which I think is my personal record so far).

Oh well, things could always get worse. So I won’t complain anymore.

Hopefully, our good cheer and motivation will come back. I just want to finish the things that I started and get on with life (including my blog).

Little improvements

The year has been stressful so far. So many things to do, and so little time (in some cases, no motivation at all).

It felt like having your soul sucked out of you. My only consolation is that things will change in 3 months. I actually can’t wait. It’s going to be a major change, hopefully a change for the better.

I did stitch in the last month. My current project is going really well.

I’ve also been reading a little bit. Other than that, nothing new. I mean, I did put on a few pounds from boredom eating, I’ve got glasses (things are so clear now), and I’ve been drinking every night for the past week. But, somehow those are not things that I feel like bragging about.

One thing I would like to change. I would like my photography inspiration to come back.

Days of Spring!

It’s April and I’m happy!

I’m happy for no particular reason. OK, maybe my good mood was triggered by the lovely weather we are having, my stitching projects, the fact that I am on the morning shift at work (and I’ll be on it for the next 2 months as well!), and by many others.

Don’t worry, life is not that perfect for me and John but it certain has some good things in it.

This is my only free day for this week. I plan on taking advantage of it. Besides the cleaning, washing and even a little blogging I intend on stitching some more and just chill.

I finished my needlepoint poinsettia from Krif. I was really happy with this project because it was small and very easy to stitch. And, I made a resolution to myself to buy smaller projects that I can finish before I get bored of them.

I did a little shopping for more needlepoint projects, but I started a medium one. In fact, last week I had a stitch-a-ton. I am almost done with the black floss (which has become really boring) but I am happy of the way I advanced on it.

Needlepoint Project

Oh well, I think I shall blog more next week. Until then I’m off into my stitching world. After all, we have to take advantage of the lovely sun.

How to keep willing hands active

Just give them a new stitching project.

Just two weeks and I’m almost half way through. I actually missed stitching and truthfully I wasn’t in the mood to stitch on the old projects. This is a smaller model and it’s very easy to stitch and follow the pattern. I managed to see 2 series of The Amazing World of Gumball and 4 series of Adventure Time. I guess my brain really needed some time out from daily life.
