Thanks for the sympathy friends. Today was a whole new day. Even though we woke up to cloudiness in our area, I felt a whole lot sunnier! Dh was back to normal and the thing that I tried to talk to him about cleared itself up in a way that I never expected. In a way I think the Lord showed His hand in it so I could know that it was Him and not me trying to fix things. And I can feel a little ashamed of myself for not trusting Him in it, but I am still so thankful!
I just hate it when I make mistakes. I always want to feel like I have done things the 'right' way. I have been so fearful of making mistakes in my life I end up doing nothing. I am trying to correct that, even if it only by trying a sewing pattern with a technique I haven't tried or venturing into a conversation with someone I haven't met (You really old friends, from my old blog, will know that is something.) It took me years to venture into doing a buttonhole! Isn't that funny?
I don't want my children to be afraid of making mistakes like I have been. I hope they don't inherit those perfectionistic tendencies. I hope they know I don't expect perfection, only that they receive correction and try their best. And be able to laugh at themselves.
Today I sent S. of to her Civil War dance. I didn't take pictures of her before she left because the camera was almost out of batteries and she wanted to take it with her. But I forgot to tell her to make sure someone takes a picture of her. Rats. She probably won't think of it. I hope she has as much fun as she's expecting.
I think the rest of us will have a LOTR night since we haven't watched it in a while.
And maybe I'll get to knit for a bit. I am trying to make a sweater for Babykins. Maybe if I work really hard I'll get it done for fall? But I'm making it a bit big, so it will fit him next year if not. I'm not very good at knitting, but it is soothing to clink, clink the needles together. Until a little boy climbs on my lap and makes me drop a stich.
What projects do you have going?
