Words, Words, Words

I've written several blogs in my head as I'm sure most of you have. But they haven't quite made it to the screen. My energy level from the depression is very low. I should be on my way to quilt guild right now, but I just couldn't go there and be sociable. They are a wonderful group of women with lots of energy. When I feel like this, it is torture to go to social things.

I was also supposed to donate platelets today, but I was still coughing from my cold so they told me to stay home.

I did take Harleen for two long walks. It was warm and sunny here today (73 degrees). We didn't leave the property. Just went where she likes to go and sniff and chase a few geese and rabbits. I'm still wearing my pedometer so that's good. It let's me see physical progress.

I have been able to do some work on blocks and quilts. I feel better when I'm touching fabric, especially the colorful stuff.

My brother's mother-in-law recently presented them with a handmade queen-sized quilt. Every stitch was by hand. I can't imagine doing that. I'll find the picture of it and post it. It's beautiful.

Kerry just left to get Chinese food. I've ordered my snow peas and prawns. I figure the green vegetables will help.

Tomorrow I get another Supartz shot in my knees and then book club tomorrow night. That I can go to because it's a small group; they know me well. Plus the book we are reading (She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb) is perfect for someone who is depressed. It's nice to read a book where the main character is more depressed than I am. Good book if you are interested.

I write virtual blog entries all the time.

Thanks for the link you left me. I'm really enjoying it.

I hate to ask, but- what happened with the housesitter??

Hope you brighten up soon :)

talking about social situations - do you dread running in to someone you know at the grocery store, etc?

Last year, I was going to a once-a-month weight-loss group, nicest group of gals tat you can imagine. I haven't been there in months.

Like I said before, I HAVE to work for living, so I do manage to get to work, but that is all I can accomplish. This past weekend, my husband went to town a couple of times but I didn't go anywhere, I'm contect being at home with my pets.

You left home and went on a cruise, I can't imagine even considering that.

sorry you are so down. :(

One plus is you don't have our crrrappy weather! :)
It's gonna be around 30- 40 below zero with wind chills (pretty much all week).
Cabin Fever has set in.
I'm feeling a wee bit crazy.

Hang in there girl.

I read she's come undone a long, long time ago and I loved it. I should get it again.

Count me in the walking wounded (depressed and working) too Joanna. I'm the sole breadwinner around here and have responsibilities up to my eyeballs beyond a normal wife and mother. It sucks, but I am just going on autopilot right now.

And yeah, what did that loser negligent housesitter say???
