Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Doe a dear

I am tired and crabby today. My morning latte didn’t even cheer me up.

Work has been demanding. I fantasize about a life at home; baking bread and cross stitching and puttering about.

We’ve been having discussions about the boys’ schooling and that weighs heavily on my mind. Parenting decisions are so HUGE and anxiety ridden!

I feel like I am constantly behind on everything; paperwork, chores, activities. Don’t even get me started on Scouts!

I desperately need a haircut and wardrobe makeover, make that an entire style revamp.

I am thankful for:

{the big things}

health (mine and my 3 loves)

a loving & supportive partner

a job (even if it is especially stressful and unhappy right now)

food to eat, a nice place to live, an active community

{the little things}

an evening with no plans

my boy turns 10 next week (double digits!)

warm knit socks

hash browns

cross stitching, piano playing, & a particularly cute cat

This and That




  1. I’ve been super crabby lately too. I think its a combination of stress, too much work, and this weather. Blah. Hope things look up soon!

  2. So sorry you are having a rough day. I hope tomorrow is better for you. One thing at a time when you get to it. You have the most important parts down pat. The other things can wait. Big Hugs!

  3. Thanks Ginny! Your comments are always so sweet. 🙂

  4. Thanks Hannah! Sorry to hear that you’ve been crabby too! How’s wedding planning coming along???

  5. Lol to be honest I have been avoiding it! Everyone has an opinion as to what you should do and it stresses me out. I know what I don’t want and we’ve sort of made plans for what we want but we still have no date or true set in stone plans

I love to hear from you!
