I have been working furiously on the blanket for my 7 year old. I plan on having it done for her by Christmas. I decided to make her one because....well, there is a bit of back story to it....
When her and her daddy and his S.O. moved a few months ago, she and her daddy were driving the Uhaul and towing his car and his S.O. was driving her car. Well, the car he was towing somehow caught fire and they lost that car and everything that was packed up in it...which included all her bedding. She has other bedding but I thought a nice warm blanket made just for her would be nice.
When I asked what color she liked (because it changes from week to week) she named off the whole rainbow, plus pink, lol!
I found a really nice basket weave pattern that I am enjoying and making a rainbow blanket with pink on the end. All of the colors are very bright and I think it is turning out so pretty. Added bonus is that it keeps me busy. I will post a pic when it's all done.
I also made a blanket for my niece and also made some babies out of cloth diapers for her too. She is going to use cloth diapers for awhile and I thought it would be a cute way to give them to her. The shower is in two weeks and all I have left to get for her is diaper pins, rubber pants, and a few other assorted goodies. (I love this basket and want to get one for myself too...half off at Hobby Lobby!)
Today was a rough day for me. It's Sunday, no where to go and no energy to get there even if there was.
My digestive system has been giving me a really hard time for the last few days. While I DO feel better daily since having my gallbladder out over a year ago, I still go through segments of time that I would trade the nonstop bathroom trips for the way I felt before I had it out.
I guess the good part is that I get extra trips up the stairs, eh?
I know, I know, this too shall pass. Lame pun not totally intended...ok, well maybe it was, lol!
I haven't had the extra energy to get out and do anything in a couple days and since today was Sunday and its football season here both tv's were on the games...blah. I spent the day getting caught up on my emails and going up and down the stairs to the restroom.
I didn't even do my usual in the kitchen today...I made breakfast for me and my beau and cleaned up the counters (my sister wipes down the whole kitchen with Clorox wipes every Sunday) I didn't make supper, and I didn't clean up after...my sister did everything today. I feel bad about it because I try to help out as much as I can while I'm not working but I am just wiped out.
My panic attacks have subsided since I stopped taking the niacin supplements. Good thing that niacin is flushed out of your body quickly so I didn't have to deal with more attacks while it got out of my system.
Now if I could just get a handle on my mood swings that easily.
I've had a rough day with mood swings, nothing out of the normal, but when the ups and downs happen several times a day, its also energy-sapping. I know that I will feel better soon though, I always do, sometimes the swings are 5 minutes apart, sometimes its a few hours before I feel better, but I always bounce back.
I guess the only time I will let my brain chemistry get me down permanently is the same day I quit processing oxygen!
Take care and love yourself.
