grouchy

OH my.  When I start feeling really ill I get grouchy.  And this week I am GROUCHY.  I feel bad for the family.  But they can tell with my snippy reactions.


So let's not talk about that :)


So the last two weeks that I was off of meds, I felt a lot of my creativity come back.  I've been browsing Pinterest and have gotten some inspiration there.  Here's what I've gotten done over the last two weeks!
I furiously set about to paint my daughter's crib the NIGHT BEFORE I started this week's meds.  My husband came in to help me for a bit and was asking me about my sudden surge of "projects".  I told him that since I feel better on "off" weeks, I get more creative and as the two weeks come to an end I feel like I have all these things to try and to finish before the dreaded day that the meds/bugs dying start slowing me down to where I'm trudging through sludge.  I told him I feel pretty useless those two weeks so I feel like I have to put all I have into these things I try to get done before my "on weeks" start.  He seemed to understand and stayed a few extra minutes to help me get the first coat of paint on the whole crib so that I could finish it up the next day.

I also set about to decorate the house for fall.  I made a front door wreath:

A "thankful board":


My daughter's first grateful leaf: "God loving us" :)


Pumpkins :)



I decoupaged this foam pumpkin:

I took a cute mirror and turned it into a chalk board:


Anyway, I will now resume my place resting and feeling grouchy.

  2. Holy Moley...you've been busy. No wonder you're grouchy. You left it all on the mat (or, in this case, cutting board).

    :) kidding...

    Hope you get some rest and feel better soon. When I am in pain, I turn into Frankenstein. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

    Cheering you on...
