Random Friday: TGIF

This has been a really tough week in our house. We had some bad financial surprises to start us off, The Pirate has H1N1 (but so far, knock wood, not the Bug), and work has been stressful. I have gotten an amazing amount of support from an online community of which I am a part and I can't begin to express my thanks to them. Their kindness and understanding has made a hard thing bearable. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I don't think any of them read my blog but I wanted to mention the kindness of the invisible people in my computer. I have been beyond stressed and haven't had the peace of mind to blog. That said, here are some thoughts.

It snowed here for the last two days.

I have three books waiting for review. I hope to actually review them before I forget them.

Tomorrow is Halloween and I am not at all excited about it.

Shop Update: I have listed a brand spankin' new type of item to the shop this week- small zippered wallets. They have a zipper pouch big enough for your credit card, cash, id, and chap stick, and a second snapped pocket that will also hold an id or credit card. They also have a key ring so you could attach them to your keys if desired. Go check them out. I have quite a few more cut out and ready to sew, so keep watching if you don't see a pattern you like. I also have a few crayon rolls in the wings.


  1. I'm so sorry The Pirate is sick and that you're so stressed right now. I hope you can find some way to de-stress. Take care of yourself!

  2. I hope life looks better tomorrow. Hugs

    Hope Bug (and the rest of the family) stay well, and hope Pirate feels better soon.

    No, one doesn't read or sew or anything for long periods of time when there are little ones in the house.

    Somehow, for quite a while, I've missed looking at this blog. Sorry. I've added it to my Reader.

  3. Awww Lisa!! I'm so sorry to hear that The Pirate has H1N1. I hope he'll be fine and the Bug won't catch it!!

    Take care of yourself and be strong!

  4. Sending lots of prayers your way that things iron themselves out quickly and you can destress.

  5. Lisa, I hope that the Pirate feels better soon and that the other news turns into opportunity rather than stress and upset. We're kind of skating on the edge here so I know the toll stuff like this can take. Cheers my friend.

  6. Sorry your week has been bad and that your little one is sick. :( SO many people seem sick lately. We picked something up at a Halloween party last weekend, and it's keeping me all up with my little man because he's all stuffed up and can't sleep. But I'm trying to keep it in perspective... I know it could be worse. Fingers crossed that both are kids get better quickly!

  7. Sounds pretty stressful! I hope things start to look up for you soon!

  8. Oh no! I hope things (and the Pirate) get better soon!

  9. I truly hope that things get better and you have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by my space!


  10. Thanks everyone. It's been one of those weeks I'd like to crawl into bed and sleep through. Unfortunately, the boys didn't get that memo.

  11. Even though it is extremely annoying at the time, I think children and/or other distractions are good for us in the long run. I truly believe it is God's way of helping us keep our sanity. Really. So here are more hugs.

  12. I am just catching up on my blog reading. I'm so sorry that the Pirate got hit with H1N1 but maybe it's good to get it out of the way now before the entire world is hit with it. Just trying to make light of a tough situation.

    I'm also sorry that you are so stressed right now. If I were close, I'd take you for coffee. I feel stressed often and sometimes it just helps to dump your troubles on someone else for a while.

  13. Hi Lisa,
    I'm so sorry last week was so rough for you guys and hope this week turns up. Hoping Pirate recovers quickly and Bug, Mom and Dad stay healthy, too!

  14. Hope things are better and the Pirate is feeling well again! Thank god for online communities, right? I don't know how I'd cope otherwise sometimes!
