Improvise, Adapt and Overcome

Mom and I went to the mortgage person last night and it didn't turn out the way we had hoped.  We have some issues we have to overcome and we now have a direction to go to make it to our goal of owning a house together.  I was really down last night and I couldn't sleep.  I kept going over in my mind what I could do to turn this around.  I think I finally fell asleep around 4:55am and the alarm went off at 6:00am.  I did try to get up and ready for work, but when I ran into the wall and stubbed my toe I said I am going back to bed and go into work at noon.

I had an email from my aunt telling me that there is something better out there for mom and I; we just have to be patient and keep the positive attitude going.  I also had an email from mom saying the same thing and a lot of great things we have in our lives.  I just have to keep that in mind, but it was just so disappointing and I felt like a failure and that I had let mom down. 

That was last night and I have sucked it up and I had my whine session, so now it is onto Positivity Out into the Universe!  Mom and I are just going to have to dress in layers and not work in yellow enamel (cracks in the cold weather) until it starts to get warmer. 

On with the great news!  We received an email from our Blog Soup Partner Kristi, CB&CO.  Mom and I are so excited to work with her.  Kristi is a silversmith but started out as a lampworker.  This is going to be so much fun!  Mom and I had started working on our swap, but of course nothing got done this past weekend.  I plan on making some beads tonight and finish up the rest of the pieces this weekend.  We are on pins and needles with anticipation of what we will receive from Kristi.

I have to end this post on a fun note.  Here are some photos of my youngest cat Reveille.  She was watching The Universe with me as I was knitting last week.  She really liked the images of the spiral universes and the exploding stars.  Sorry the images are a little fuzzy, I took them with the phone.

And here are some images of the frost from a few weeks ago.

I am much better now.  I have my Pepsi, though I did give it up for the year, I needed my caffeine to get me through the day.  I plan on working on beads tonight, so that should cheer me up a lot.  I also want to say thank you again for everyones' positive thoughts for mom and myself.  That more then anything gives mom and I warm and fuzzies!


  1. I love the pics of Reveille watching the Universe! I bet my Jezzie would love that :)

    More positive thoughts coming to you guys to make your dreams happen!

  2. Big hugs to you both~ it's hard to accept when the WANT! of the moment doesn't work out but I truly believe everything happens for a reason.

    I have no doubt that you beautiful gals will find yourselves in the perfect place one day soon.

    love y'all!

    PS. Precious kitteh photos!

  3. Hugs and love to both of you. It will happen just not this one. I am sending out the best so you both can have a "yippie" sometime soon!

  4. Stay UP ladies! I know that this is a set-back, but maybe there is a reason for this? I do believe that things happen for a reason and there must be something there. I love that your cat watches TV with you. That is fun! And thanks for clearing up why you can't work with yellow... I had no idea!
    Enjoy the day! Sending UPness to you both!

  5. *lol* My cat loves soccer with all those little men running around on the screen.
    I hope you can keep up the positive attitude. I know how hard that sometimes can be. I wanted something so bad over the last two weeks and today I got the message that I wouldn't get it. So yes, everything happens for a reason.
