Hunkering Down

Some days, I feel like I’m on a carnival ride that is spinning too fast for me. I just want it to stop, so I can go somewhere and rest and hunker down. This week is feeling like that, and it hasn’t even really begun! There is so much to do, and so little time!

I wanted to join in on the fun at Project Show Me (be prepared, if you follow that link…music will start blasting at you and you have to find the button and turn it off to think). Robert does have an interesting photography project going on, and the participants are coming up with some exciting photographs. I learned about it from Robin, who always finds cool projects. But, I’ve got too many things on my plate.

My husband just left for a business trip, and the cats and I are feeling very bereft at the moment. This isn’t a good week for him to travel (though I don’t believe that any week is good for him to go away). I’m waiting on the results of some medical tests. If they are positive then I’m going to be a basket case.

If, however, they are negative, I’m going to jump up and down for joy, celebrate by eating my final BLT (go read my bacon posts, because there may be no more…sniff), and begin an aggressive treatment for high cholesterol. When the gastroenterologist saw my cholesterol levels, she said, “How are you alive?” Her eyes were as big as sausages (oh no!…no more sausage either!).

So instead of posting much this week, I’ll show you photographs through the week of some of the projects that are keeping me busy, and keeping my mind off of blogging.

It begins with these:

These are two afghans in the process of being made from squares left over from the Share A Square project. I’ve got 27 afghans ready to package (eight are currently being put together by volunteers) and enough squares to make about six more afghans. Then, I can deliver them all to Cook Children’s Medical Center to be given to cancer patients who didn’t attend Camp Sanguinity this summer. These two afghans will be finished this week! See why I don’t have time to write much?

Besides, I’m also working on this: …and, I could use your help! Click it and see.

Excuse me while I “hunker down.”

    Oh, I’m on the high cholesterol bandwagon right there with ya, sistahfriend. Although, you get a 9 month free pass from caring when you’re pregnant. WOOT!

    I can only use that excuse for another three weeks, though. Damn and blast!

    I’m sorry you’re feeling all spinny and chaotic right now. I wish I had some magic words that would help it all feel better, but I don’t. I know what it’s like waiting on those medical test results, scary and oppressive, and it’s no good trying to think of anything else!

    I’m still thinking negatively for you, so you’ve got “awesome test result” vibes on your way from Colorado. Be sure to check your psychic-mail. 😉

    It will get better…I appreciate your kind words, girlfriend.

    I want to hear how you resolve your cholesterol, since mine is also extremely high. Still negative thoughts in my head.

    Marcias last blog post..Decisions come hard for us

    Yours is high, too? I thought that being a vegetarian would keep it lower, so yours must be some kind of genetic thing. Believe me, if I figure anything out about it, I’ll be talking about it. OH…do you eat a lot of dairy products? Everything I’m reading said cut back, or go “no-fat.”
