I just want to complain!

Usually, I don’t indulge myself this way, but right now I really have a lot on my mind and no one I want to talk to about it in person, so this blog post will have to suffice.

First off – one of my little sisters – the youngest one – may have a heart problem. Well, that’s not an accurate statement; she does have a heart problem, but the severity and cause and solution of it remain to be seen. She is only 20 and could only last about four minutes during a stress test before the cardiologist pulled her off. They don’t have anything conclusive yet other than ‘we think it’s something in the right side.” Well, okay, that’s helpful! Yay for waiting for another week to see the doctor.

And, I finished a crafting project, which I am really happy about it. DD and I refinished a book case and it looks beautiful. Unfortunately, it is part of a bigger project – my bedroom makeover – and I haven’t made any other progress in the room yet. I have a quilt planned and bought the material for it, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten so far. And for some reason, I have hit a major road block in this project. I think the problem is that I no longer have a sewing room and it’s a real stumbling block for creativity when you can’t just go sit down and sew, you have to dig things out and spend twenty minutes clearing and sorting and setting up before you can start.

Also, I am STILL not sleeping at night. As in, at all. With two toddlers three days a week who get here before the sun comes up, I really really need sleep…but despite my best efforts it’s not happening.

So, really, that’s all the complaining I have…health issues, quilter’s block and a sleep problem. Seeing it all written out like this makes everything feel a little less overwhelming. I think I can handle all of that, easily, now that I’ve stepped back and looked again from a new perspective…

Thanks for listening to my venting! 😉 I am off to read my bible and spend some time praying for patience and the right heart condition so I can change my bad attitude, and see what tomorrow brings…


About messymama
I'm a SAHM with a busy schedule and a love of too many things to count! I sew, I write, I draw, and I love to create. I'm always on the lookout for a new project idea. One other very important thing about me - my house is in a continual state of upheaval and mess. Slowly but surely I'm working through the piles and boxes, but I am still in the process, and some days it seems like it would be much easier to pack up and move!
