Status Update

This morning is the first time I have felt like blogging so I best do it before the motivation passes.
Unfortunately, little has changed since my last post. Every day I anxiously await news when my husband will get to come home and what the goob our future is going to look like.
I got my truck back. The damage was $6,000 dollars and counting because now it has some "bugs" that need to be fixed. I start physical therapy for my neck injury this coming week. Because of the neck pain, sleeping has been awkward..so hopefully they can help me with that.
The best thing is that I am back in my lovely Idaho. I never want to leave again but I know I will have to, so I am trying my best to enjoy it while I can.
I am now "surfing" my 5th couch; have I mentioned how much I hate living out of a suitcase? And mind you, I am lugging my Etsy inventory with me wherever I go in order to keep the shop open. I have to say that my little Etsy shop has been the only consistency in my life lately. I can't express how reassuring it is when I package an order up and take it to the post office. It's like the one thing that hasn't been taken from me...that at least a little part of me is still going.
Anyhow, I haven't even been "up" for tatting.
It would be really nice to get some good news soon. I would love for my next post to be cheery. Which brings me to the next point. When I am this "down" I can't bring myself to talk to people. I owe so many of you emails but I just can't do it. I have always been this way and I guess I just don't want to bring anyone down with me.

I took this photo while walking my dog the other day. I thought I would share it with you. I adore tulips! I wish they would stick around all summer...but maybe the fact that they are so short lived is what makes them so special.

I have listed a few new shuttles. I am extremely low on shuttles and anxious to get my studio back up and running so I can make some more. I don't have hope that will be anytime soon however.

Well it's good to see you back if only for a short while and with no tatting to show. I bet when you get over the glitches in your life you'll be back and super productive. Keep smiling.

Just keep in touch with us whenever you can. We are all worried about you. Hope the Therapy will help you neck. Will you get back into your own house or is it let out.

Fergeal's legs will stay crossed for as long as it takes until you get some good news.

Sherry, I've thought about sending an email many times to you, but I didn't think you felt like writing and believe me, I know what that feels like! I understand. I remember some encouraging words you wrote me while I was going through a very dark period last year and I'd like to remind you of those words. I'm going to write you an email and you just write back whenever you feel like it.
I'm glad to hear that you are back in Idaho and getting the treatment you need for your neck.
I'd better go check out those shuttles before someone else snatches up the good ones! LOL!

Hope hubby comes home soon!

I was just thinking about you this morning and wondering if you had heard any news. I hope something happens soon! Keep in touch when you feel like it, and don't worry about it the rest of the time... we'll keep! I'm sending big hugs your way!

It seems to be very true for you right now that when it rains - it pours! Any one of the things you are going through would be stressful, and so I'm just praying everything will get back on an even keel for you soon. Keep taking care of yourself, you're in my thoughts. :-) *hugs*

I know what you mean by not wanting bringing people down with us (but there is a cliche misery loves company). But at times you need to share else you will be bursting to the brim (which happened to me early last week but a friend helped me out of it).

Sherry, I am so sad that you are going through such a trying time. I too am glad to hear that at least you are enjoying staying in Idaho and it is great that you have at least one good thing consistent in your life with the etsy site. May your walks be filled with thousands of Tulips until happy news comes your way. Sending you the biggest of hugs. Clyde.

Its good to hear from you. Take care.

The dark days suck. And every so often we all have to go through them. Right now, it's you, stuck in a miserable place. But, I see you are sending out beautiful tulips! (my fave - I even have a tattoo of one!) That is a very positive sign. Hang in there, the days pass, and the sun will shine. You have a LOT of fans! Fox : )

It is so good to see your post. At least you are home in your Idaho. I completely understand not wanting to talk to anyone. I am the same way. You just concentrate on your little family and I will pray for hubby to be home soon and some normalcy to return to your lives. I am so glad you have the Etsy shop to keep you going. Love you. Lala

Count your blessings, Sherry. You have many things to be thankful for. Hope things get better soon. Thinking of you!
