Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Simple Joys

Today I am happy because:

It’s Friday!

It’s rainy, which means that my feet got all wet walking from the car into the office, but it’s not as hot and it’s kinda cozy and grey.

I came to terms with not being able to keep everything together on my own and asked our housekeeper to come back. I mean, who doesn’t love coming home to toilet paper roses?

My ultra food planning was a success. I packed lunches for the boys and Tom and me every single day this week. I love putting an extra treat in there for them, although yesterday I forgot Tom’s ice pack and his chocolate cookies melted into a big gooey mess.

I finally got a new fitbit and have met the 10,000 step goal every day except yesterday. One night, Tom and Littlest made some kind of deal before our evening walk about having to wear their clothes backwards. Don’t ask.

I haven’t been on Facebook since Monday! And I don’t miss it! And I feel better! There’s a lot to be said for blissful ignorance.

I got together with a friend in NY after a meeting on Wednesday. Usually I make plans and then cancel when my anxiety sets in (secret shame) but this time I stuck with it and we had a lovely visit.

What’s making you happy this week?




Summer weekend


  1. So glad you had a wonderful week. Don’t you just love it when everything just falls into place nicely? And having help isn’t exactly failure. I’m sure you already do a lot and it’s ok to get help. Frees you up for more important things. I know exactly what you mean about “Ignorance is Bliss” in referring to Facebook. I’m not at that point where I can not take a look on FB, but I did weed through and unfollowed quite a few people that constantly post the negative and gloom and doom. I know it’s there, but I don’t need to see it in my face every time I get on social media. I am much happier with my facebook 😉

  2. Yes! I did go on FB to peek at some camp pictures of the kids, but I’m trying really hard to stay off!!!

I love to hear from you!
