Life and Bomb Threats

         Hanging out with Mom at work

I know I said I was just taking the month of April off from the blog but it looks like I’ve taken May off too.  Work has been so mentally exhausting lately that when I get home it’s all I can do to keep my brain cells firing long enough to fix supper, fill the dishwasher, the washing machine, get little bitty her bath, and then stare hopelessly at the tv while I think about all the things I’d love to be working on.  But honestly I’ve been so mentally drained that I just can’t stand the thought of having to sit down in front of a different computer and edit pictures and write posts.  I just can’t.  The green quilt I hoped to have finished is laying in the floor of my sewing room with the edging squares laid out around it ready to be pinned together and sewn.  It’s been like that for three weeks.  

I can hear it through the sounds of cyberspace - girlfriend you need a few days off work!

Oh how I wish.  I’m not going into it because it’s work and I don’t really feel like that’s something that needs to be on the blog but needless to say it’s just not possible right now.  I have a few days scheduled to be off the end of July but I just hope that happens.  We’ll see.  I’m just glad to have Memorial Day off.  

Life has just been crazy. For example yesterday, Wednesday, sometime this week there was a bomb threat at Lowe's in town. Allie's daycare is right in front of Lowe's. The state gave the daycare an hour to evacuate. I had to pick her up before 3:30 or they would evaluate to a local elementary school all the way across town.  Thank goodness for YouTube, chocolate milk, and fruit loops. 

So, this weekend I hope to sew a little, edit some pictures, and post a nice long lengthy Stories of the South post next week.  That’s a deadline I’m going to hold myself to just so I get something done and hopefully get the ball rolling again.  I had a lot of hopes for this year and I’m not anywhere I need to be to get them accomplished.  It’s a little depressing but I’m trying not to let it get me down.  I hope you all have a great weekend and take a few minutes on Monday to think about those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  Please remember the mother and fathers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters who lost their loved one defending our country.  Remember those who are still lost in foreign lands and who may never be returned to the arms and hearts of their loved ones.  Have fun at your BBQ because that’s what those proud soldiers fought for but also take a silent moment to remember them.  

Thank you to those who have continued to comment and let me know they’re reading.  Love yall and we’ll talk again next week.  


  1. Life does seem to have its times of being turned upside down. I was in the blogging slump (mostly due to work also) for most of the spring. I hope you get a bit of rest and some of the joy back! Keep the faith, and carry on!
