The Blahs


Once again I am unable to use my camera. I need some batteries and won't be able to get them until this weekend. I feel as though a part of me is missing!

Harold went to the hospital again over the weekend. He came home from work early in the day and said he felt really funny with chest pains so another ambulance made it's way out to our house. They took him to ER first then set him up in a room on another floor to moniter his heart for the remainder of the day. After a days worth of blood tests they finally decided to release him around 9 that night along with some medical orders and he came home.

I am still digging through my stash and constantly changing my mind on what to do! I need to just pull something and start it! I have an order to make later this week. Nothing big. Just several charts I saw that begged me to bring them home!

The past year since my Dad passed away has been a hard one for me. It was full of tears and memories. My mother died when I was 15 years old on August 12 and this has always been the hardest day of the year for me to get through. Now I have the anniversary of my father's death on August 13 to deal with also. Harold may take a day or two off to help keep me busy. Not that I would forget either day but staying busy would help some. August has always been a hard month for me and now it seems even more so. I don't know if it's because of the sadness involved with this month, the heat or a combination of both but I always feel a lack of energy and desire to do anything productive until September arrives.

I will be back after this hard week is over and life resumes back to normal. So until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Oh Sherry! I hope Harold is doing better now. And to have those anniversaries of your parents' deaths so close together! No wonder August is such a tough time for you. I will be thinking of you. Definitely keep yourself busy. My mother passed away the day after her birthday, so whenever her birthday rolls around, it's a bittersweet time for me and for my father too. Hugs.

Sherry, I know that this may be difficult for you but remembering is okay. My grandmothers death was very difficult for me and I have resigned myself to taking the anniversary of her death to remember her. I look at pictures and things that she had given me over the years. There is definitely sadness but it does pass. I wish you an easy week.

I am so sorry to hear that August is such a difficult month for you. I can certainly understand why though. I hope Harold continues to feel better without any more chest pains.

Aw, Sherry, what a rough time of year this must be for you. I'll be thinking peaceful thoughts and sending them your way.

Your chart to me arrived today. Thank you so much for your generous giveaways. :)

Sherry said...

I hope Harold is doing better and what a sweetie to hang with you through your difficult days. I lost my dad 5 years ago, he was much to young 62 (as was I to not have my dad here any more - just over 40)...and it's hard, but we have to pray our hearts to be calmed and the sadness to not overwhelm us...in my thoughts!

Hope the DH is feeling better. Thoughts and prayers for this difficult week.

Sherry, I'm so sorry that this month looms before you, what with all the sadness. I'm sending good thoughts your way and hope to hear you smiling once again very soon.

Carol said...

Oh, Sherry, I can only imagine what a difficult day today and tomorrow will be for you. Just sending you a warm hug and hoping that you smile when you think of the happy times you surely shared with your parents. Hope Harold is feeling better soon...

Hope Harold is doing better and hope you feel the love that comes your way in this hard month.

Jennifer said...

Prayers sent your way. Seems like August is a difficult month and I wish for Fall so soon to be hear for so many reasons myself. Take good care.

My thoughts are with you...I hope Harold is better and on the mend. I'm sure worrying about his health is also weighing heavy on your already-saddened heart.
My Dad passed away nearly 5 years ago, and I still miss him so much. Little things can come up at unexpeted times that can still bring tears to my eyes. It's okay that you hurt and miss your loved ones - the ones that you someday will leave behind will miss you in the same, deep way. it's the "circle of life" and sometimes it just stinks, huh?
I'll be looking forward to see what you pull from your stash and again, you'll be thought of in my prayers.
