I am trying to get back on my feet again

May 29, 2012

I spent the first few days off just sleeping. It doesn’t seem like one should have to sleep that much. I only had one nap today though.

I signed up for a class at the Fabric Corner to learn how to machine quilt. They are bringing in a presenter so I should have a major challenge coming next week.

I have been doing Pinterest lately. My daughter got me interested in it. On the days I feel especially tired, I pin pictures to refer back to later. I am also hoping that the people who pinned them gain some benefit from this. For the artists who sell their work, maybe they will get a new patron. I have learned many new things by studying it. I have tried two new recipes and have lined up some new projects to make down the road.

I spent this morning scanning some of my mother-in-law’s pictures. I uploaded them to Facebook so her other sons can see them. My next step is to upload them to a site to make a book that includes the names and some of their stories. It is amazing how much time this is taking though.

The challenge I gave my family and friends was to do 1 new thing each week and to try to spend 15 minutes per day doing something that makes you happy. So far I have done the 1 new thing and spent 2-3 days doing the 15 minute projects. It is slow progress but progress none the less.

Hello, it is me again.

School is now done for the year. At this point, I am not sure when I will go back. I turned in my resignation yesterday. It has been a perfect storm of issues at school and health issues with my mother-in-law and I don’t have any more to give at the moment. Two weeks ago, I stepped out of a hall only to have a running student hit me and I ended up on the floor. I don’t think she did it intentionally but my head still ended up hitting the floor. I remember lying there and thinking there had to be something better for me somewhere…………….
