::Weekly Rambles::

What’s really on my mind and heart?
I am so ready for the month of May to be over! So much drama. So much stress. So very busy. So many bad decisions on the parts of too many people. So. Much. Over. It.

What am I thankful for?
Jesus and His mother Mary, because when I'm so over it, I know that He is all that matters and that they will both help me through it.

What’s going on in school?
Two more days. Then the very first graduation for our little hybrid school which will be both joyful and sad. Sad for reasons other than the usual children growing up stuff. Vague, I know, but not bloggable. 

What’s cooking?
I can't think about anything clearly, especially dinner. I'm sure I'll come up with something at the last minute, but not fast food as I was just telling my kids last night that it's fairly simple to make something healthy and delicious with minimal fuss when you're rushed or stressed. Of course. 

What’s on the needles?
Nothing. Maybe that's part of the problem---no coping mechanism. I finished my Liesl tunic on Friday, blocked it Saturday night (after wearing it unblocked!). Yesterday I spent about an hour fixing it after it snagged on something and pulled out a 20" loop! I will have to be very careful not to brush against snaggy things since it has such an open weave.

But, boy, am I itching to go buy yarn today! 

What’s special about this week?
Last day of school. American Heritage Girls Court of Honor. Graduation ceremony.

What am I reading?
Nothing. Again: No coping mechanisms. I've been a little afraid to pick up a novel that will be compelling and keep me from doing the actual work that needs to be done. I guess that's also why I don't have a knitting project yet.

What am I praying about?
All of it. Especially our AHG troop and leadership.

What’s on my ipod?/

What projects are happening at home?
Hoping to have new hardwood floors installed and little bit of bathroom work done. Really dreading the amount of labor involved in those endeavors.

Aren't you glad I decided to blog again after 2 weeks? ;-) Sorry for being so cranky! Except for the past 5 days, it has really been okay around here. We've had a Confirmation and a college graduation that I haven't had time to blog about...and drama...good drama, not the bad kind...more to come. Maybe I'll be back next week to update you some more. I actually have a couple/three draft posts waiting to be finished when I find the time and the brain-space (at the same time!).


  1. I know what you mean about coping and just getting it all over with. My mom always said, "don't wish your life away," in other words, don't wish the days away. But, I just have so much that thinking about it makes me anxious beyond words. If only we could spread out the events to enjoy them a little more.

    I hope your cranky goes away soon! :-)

    1. I remember your mom saying that! ;-) I'm not wishing my life away, just the human strife. It can still be May. I have learned over the many stressful years of parenting that we don't need to be in 2 places at once, something always works out so that we almost always figure out how to get there (or our children), the event goes away, or we make a choice. Then we wonder why we worried because it all worked out!

    2. You may not be wishing the days away, but I think I am. I'd like to fast forward past most of it! Sad, but the anxiety it all causes makes it true.

    1. Thanks! I just posted a photo of mine blocking. I'll have to get a picture wearing it, and not in the dark, so you can see the yarn better.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
