Wow, I knew it had been a very long time since I posted, but didn’t realize it was last year. I’m surprised there is still anyone out there to read this.
Do you like the cloud mobile that I made. My daughter saw a similar one for sale on Etsy and asked me if I could make one for her. She wanted it to decorate the new Nursery at her house. Yep, that right, a baby is on the way! Recliner Man and I are about to become grandparents. The kids gave us the news when they were here for a visit at Christmas. It seemed like we had such a long time to wait that I wasn’t in a big rush to finish the mobile. Time was zipping by and my daughter kept asking if I would be done soon. I finally got it together and mailed to her last week.
I didn’t give myself much time to spare – the baby is due in 2 weeks. I’m leaving next week to drive up there and spend time with them before and after the baby arrives. I’m so excited and can’t wait to meet my grandchild. We don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl, but I know it will be beautiful, and amazing, and have the cutest little toes.
On the health front I am still recovering from that stupid Lovastatin. Can you believe it, I’ve been off the medicine for over a year and still on the mend. Along the way my doc misdiagnosed me with Kidney Disease and left the news in a recorded phone message. I finally decided it was time for a new doctor. The new guy figured out that my kidneys are ok but my thyroid isn’t. Getting older is for the birds! All in all, I’m doing well. The thyroid issue slowed me down a little and I think that has contributed to the lack of posts her. Ambition has been at a low and the to-do list has been growing by leaps and bounds. Blogging just wasn’t becoming a priority.
I’ve been trying to decide what to do about my site and blog. I’m not crafting as much and haven’t had interest in keeping up the site. I considered taking it down but it still gets a lot of traffic and that tells me people are happy to have it as a resource. I think I’ll work on scaling it back a bit. I’ve decided to keep the blog but to stop kidding myself by thinking that it is something of a craft blog. It is just a personal blog that will sometimes contain crafts. It was becoming more and more “me” and less and less “crafts” anyway. So now I’ve made peace with that and hope that it will rejuvenate my motivation to post more frequently.
