I Have Been a Bad, Bad Blogger!

Yes, I have been a terrible, awful, no-good blogger this week. I didn't even post yesterday! GASP!!!!  You all know that we have been having VBS all week and that has taken A LOT of my time but here are a couple of things that you don't know.....

C2 (my youngest) is extremely shy and extremely attached to The Hubby and me. This week has been a major stress packed time for him. Even though he has been enjoying VBS it has put a lot of stress on him and he has been regressing. This past week I have had to be right beside him 24/7. And most of the time just being in the same room has not been enough. He wants me to hold him constantly. That's OK. We are working through it and once VBS is over things ought to go back to normal.

I have Fibromyalgia. I wasn't sure that I was going to talk about that here but then I decided that I definitely SHOULD. Spreading awareness is a GOOD thing, especially for a condition that is so misunderstood. It is a REAL thing. It can be a debilitating thing! So, while I have had LOADS of fun this week with VBS it has caused me to have a major flair up. That means lots of pain and exhaustion. It's OK. I am dealing with it and it's definitely better now that I am on medication. I knew that this would probably happen but I also knew how important it was for me to teach this week. There's no way my little guy would have gone otherwise and I have been so incredibly blessed this week watching the little people come to understand more about God and His amazing love for us. I will definitely be volunteering again next year.

So there you go. Another little peek inside my world.

OK, enough about that. LOL

I have finished cutting out the fabric for the Retro Butterick '47 B5209!!! YAY!!! I won't be able to start sewing on it until tomorrow, though. I haven't sewed a stitch all week!! WAH!!! :( Well, unless you count patching d's jeans... And I DON'T! LOL

OH!! D has had all kinds of compliments all week on the bag/backpack that I made her!! YAY!!! Maybe I should make some up to sell?? I have no clue about pricing though. I want to start selling but I am not sure where or how to start. Anyone have any advice in that area?? I am definitely open to suggestions! LOL

I am very sorry about being a BAD BAD blogger!! I hope you stick with me!! Things will get back to normal this weekend! Well, as normal as it ever is around here. ;)

Leave me a little note and tell me what YOU have been up to!! I would love to see what everyone is working on!!!


  1. Oh Stacy - I completely understand where you are coming from! I have Fibromyalgia too. And I am recovering from overdoing it too! It is so hard to stop when you are doing something you enjoy. I hope you can get some rest and feel better soon. And I bet you feel the same way about sewing that I do - it takes your mind off the aches and pains!

    Happy sewing and gentle hugs,

  2. Thank you, Patricia!! And you are absolutely right!! Sewing has been the best thing for the fibro!! It's my therapy! ;)

  3. HUGS, and I hope you get feeling better once life gets somewhat back to normal :)
