An Announcement. Kinda.

Hey y'all. I'm struggling with something pretty deep right now. I'll be getting to it with y'all eventually, but for right now I can't. Not that it's a bad thing. It's like being a caterpillar, turning into a butterfly. I'm struggling to get out of the chrysalis, but if I talk through it now, it will be like someone coming along with scissors and cutting the chrysalis open. I'd be horribly deformed and die early. I think we all know that I don't want to be horribly deformed or die early. Right? RIGHT?! *phew*

So I'm going to MIA for a little bit. Probably not too long, but no promises. Meaning I won't be making the rounds much either. Sorry. Know that I love you all. It has absolutely nothing to do with you. Or you. Or you, or you, or you. You either. Well, maybe a little bit to do with YOU. Still, don't take it too personally.

I'll be sharing. Promise. And I'll be posting tomorrow. It just may be next Monday's Funnybone before you hear from me again. And because it may be a bit, I have to share this before I go - I got a package in the mail yesterday. Little Guy got home
from school at three and came in with a big package he'd found by the door. I was still in bed asleep, but what a wonderful way to wake up! Look what was in it!


See those cookie cutters in the back? Little Guy named them. The cow is Albert, the sheep Steve and the bunny is Jeff. I'm guessing we'll be making some very male cow, fuzzy sheep and fluffy bunny cookies soon. To eat whil lounging on the forthcoming cow blanket. What fun!

Mental P sent all this. Along with a gorgeous piece of navy batiste, which I'll show you all when it's in full swing. I've asked her to let me smock for her, and she jumped right on it. I'm so happy. :D I'll be smocking for two or three others of you as well, so the offer to smock is now officially closed. Until after Christmas at least. Sorry. And no, no need to send gifts if I'm smocking for you, as much fun as that is. I do this because I enjoy it tremendously. At some point, though, I may take the advice of some of you and develop an Etsy. We'll see.

So until I'm here and coherent ...

You? Go be you. Even if that means you have to take a detour and find you first. Life is all about the detours, darlin'.

Lori said...

Will miss you!
I suggest you make chocolate chip dough, cut them out and call them "Bullchips".

You got us worried here. Take care of yourself and don't worry about us. We'll be here for you when you feel like writing.

I will be here when you come back. Hope all is well.

Very creative names for cookies cutters.

I pray your break is wildly successful. Take all the time you need breaking out of that chrysalis... we don't want you to injure a wing! I know you are going to be a beautiful butterfly!

A good productive (in whatever manner that might be) break to you!

Waiting anxiously for your return!

Tanya Brown said...

Bizarrely enough, I'd been thinking about you with some concern. It's good to see this post.

Wishing you a good (and painless) metamorphosis!

I hope it all works out for the best. I'm saying an extra prayer for you. And, totally do the Etsy.
