Pulling myself up by my bootstraps....

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement and to those of you who are also experiencing some depression, please do feel free to share the load with me... It's a lighter burden when we share it with others who understand...

Today, I didn't even get dressed... was on computer and had more than one bowl of chocolate orange ice cream.... Then I knitted on the scarf I started last nite to go with the hat I finished. I didn't want to do a long scarf, so I did an eternity type thing and sewed it together and I'm pleased with it...

So, what can I be thankful for today, the temp. went up and it is warm and comfy in the house....I have the skill and desire to be knitting and creating things. I even had a phone call from a teacher I used to work with and she made me promise that I will teach her how to knit, when she gets 2 months off in March and hopes to come visit.... Ok, not really a lot of gratitude being shown here, but will think on it some more....

    I hear you, dear friend. You're in quite a rough patch at the moment, and I know you're being brave and trying to get past it. You will. Hang in there, Lila, hang in there. I find that smelling certain essential oils help a great deal - for me, grapefruit and rosemary, specifically. If you're looking for other options to the bootstraps method, maybe that could be something to try.

Meanwhile, I hope today brings you some relief. Remember that you're not alone, and lots of folks here truly care for you. Be well, my friend.

    This is a tough time of year for many people, myself included. The Christmas holiday has gotten so out of hand, I find it disgusting. I yearn for a simpler, more meaningful celebration. Hang in there--spring is coming!

    I am trying to keep myself is NOT working. I havent been able to settle to anything .....I did stay on track all day but dinner will be the challenge.

Comfort food, mac and cheese. I usually only make enough for one or two serving, so the challenge tonight will be to not over eat the stuff as I made a full casserole dish...maybe 6 or 7 servings. Why did I do that? Sigh.

Glad you are warm, and knitting.
