I have been really slacking off on my blog lately and I have to apologize.  I think of great topics to write about, jot them down and then never get around to writing them.  I could say that part of it has been the fun I have been having in the studio but that isn't entirely true since I haven't been spending enough time there.

It really has been more about stress and how it effects my fibro.  Oh and apparently my blood pressure since for the first time in my life, it seems to be hovering around 134/70.  (That might not seem high but since mine has always been on the rather low side, I was in shock when I saw those results.)  My fibro apparently hate stress and I have been averaging about twelve good hours a day and when eleven of those are taken up with work. Well you get the picture.

Now I am sure you are wondering why all the stress lately.  Well it is this house.  Now mind you, I love this house.  It has enabled me to get my dream job which is working from home and I have my own space to play with my jewelry.  We have a fenced yard for the furry part of our family which is shaded in the afternoons so wonderful to kick back in.  The house is big enough that we are able to host a monthly potluck where we can have up to fourteen friends joining us.

So where is the stress coming from?  It is going through the purchase process and it has been a process since I had lousy credit when we first moved in.  My credit has improved and now I am jumping through all the hoops requested and that means stress.  I swear if it wasn't for the fact that this is such a perfect house for us, I would throw up my hands and run away screaming.

It will get better.  I know this and I am really looking forward to the day that I will be able to announce that the house is ours.  Until then, I might be sporadic on my blogging except for my ramblings posts and my blog hops.  I hope that you will be patient and stick with me.

I know that I do mention fibromyalgia a lot.  For folks that are curious just what it is, just click here for a great infographic that does a great job of explaining it.  For myself, I don't suffer from depression but am really sensitive to sound which means I am not able to listen to music anymore.  I think that is why I have become addicted to audio books and podcasts.


  1. I sympathize with the stress of home buying. When I bought my home (which went totally smoothly, by the way) I got hives for the first and only time in my life. I wish you all good luck!

  2. Buying a home for us was also horribly stressful. I hope it all resolves fast for you.
