I really wanted to say that I have finished the album, but, unfortunately I’ve failed yet again.  I know it’s starting to sound ridiculous, but I’m completely exhausted.  I’ve never made excuses for myself, and find I’m doing it so often now.  I’m so sorry to tell you that I haven’t done anything else crafty, but I have slept about thirty-two hours in the last two days.  I feel like I’m really letting all of you down, and hope I start feeling better, and have more energy.  In the meantime, it’s a good thing that I have a backlog of videos for you to watch and for Rich to upload.

  1. Thanks so much Barbara. I feel like I am letting people down, as I’ve never let my arthritis dictate how I run my life. Unfortunately, now it’s got a mind of its own, and makes most of my decisions for me.


  2. Remember that if you don’t refill your own cup, you’ll have nothing left to pour into other people. You deserve rest. You aren’t “letting people down” by taking care of yourself as you need to. Sometimes sickness and hurt kicks our butt! That’s normal. Allow yourself some grace and a little room to breathe. You are doing this to bring joy to others, not to bring sadness and stress to yourself. ❤︎


  3. I was thinking about this more last night. Instead of “I failed by needing to rest” how about “I succeeded in prioritizing correctly by resting when I needed it.” Reframe your thinking! You deserve support and positivity from all people in your life – including yourself.


    1. I appreciate your thoughtful response. I realize I hold myself to a much higher standard than I should, but have been doing it for so long, that I’m not sure how to “reframe my thinking.”
