Thanks for all of the positive feedback on my little mental health awareness plug, it's nice to know I'm not the only one :) It's hard sometimes to try to describe it in a way that doesn't make you sound self centered. I know my limits and there are days/situations where I cannot put up with people's bs and removing myself from them isn't being self centered, sulky or always getting my way. If lancing the brain was possible, painless and not life threatenning sure we could monitor it like diabetics can their blood sugar but it's not really a viable option.
Yesterday was one of those days, the work day that never ends!! I went for a run at the gym and finished reading Embroidered Truths in the car while I waited for Alex to finish playing with his friends, I wasn't in any mood to put up with "but I'm not done having fun yet". Not that he gets away with this normally, but it's not like I wasn't 10 pages away from finishing a book ;) So now I've read all of the Monica Ferris paperbacks, woot! I wonder when Sins and Needles is coming out in paperback, or if I can drop enough hints for Matt to pick it up in hardcover...yeah right!! So now it's onto the Scrapbooking Mystery series.
My Mandolin Santa was almost finished yesterday but I forgot my beads at home so I couldn't finish that part at lunch, instead I worked on my Lost Dragon Sampler which is working up remarkably fast. I also met up with Eleni and did a small stash exchange and got a little girl hug from Callie :) In the evening I finished doing my DMC inventory, now to set aside some time next week to wind!! ;)
This weekend Alex and I (and maybe Matt) are heading to the Miramichi Saturday morning, I can't believe it's been 3 months since I've gotten home :( Alex of course is VERY excited at this development (and mad at me for not going right after work, but if Matt doesn't go I don't want to be on the highway alone after dark). I'm hoping to attach the mustache to Mandolin Santa and quite possibly finishing the Lost Dragon Sampler this weekend, we'll have to see ;)
