I'm still alive...

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned," -- William Congreve

It has been a week since I have posted.  I know you were worried if I was still alive - or maybe you were not, but either way these words here assure you that I am alive.

I am not going to go into details...but I will say that it has been an emotional two weeks.  VERY emotional.

It is funny how in situations like this, some things just aren't important at all anymore.  Halloween is my favorite holiday and I tell you, if I hadn't already decorated and done the crafts that I did...well, I just don't think I would have.  I had a few other projects planned that were scrapped, maybe next year on those.

Even though Halloween is not something that I am even caring about right now, I still have to make a Halloween costume for the most important person in my life.  The toddler wants to be a scary ghost.  I could make him just about any crazy thing he would want to be and he wants to be a ghost.   So the plan today is to work out how I will do this where it isn't just a sheet with holes...because he isn't going to like that.

I am sure that sometime soon I will get back to my usual blogging self, but...
Until then, think of me as a phoenix rising from the ashes and thank you for all the blog love and support.


  1. you go girl. I have a phoenix tattoo for a similar reason (the dog is from the same era. what can I say, that imagery works).

  2. PS I would go the Jacob Marley route with the ghost costume. Chains, rags, etc.
