Not doin nothin ! .............

That's exactly what I have been doing......nothing . I did stop at a yard sale the other day and almost froze my hiney off ! LOL . The little coffee pot will probably be turned into a light and I will sell it at my favorite store. I like it but it goes with nothing in my house.
I love the candlelabra, I have been wanting one of these,just paid a dollar for it.The pot was a dollar and the canister was too. I will probably make the canister into a light also.
I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since my last post. I don't know what is wrong with me unless it is the changing of seasons. You see I am not a winter person, I absolutely hate wintertime.I guess I am alittle depressed.My mother has been sick too and that has had me worried. I can tell my mom is breaking. It makes me so sad.I cant' get her to go the doctor like she should, and when she goes she want tell them them what is really wrong with her.
I dread the holidays too because I am just not able to do all of the cooking I used to do and no one seems to want to take the torch from me. Sniff,sniff .
I bet you didn't know you were stumbling into a pity party when you stopped in here today, did ya ?
I'll get better and snap out of it soon.I usually do.I need to stop and count my blessings, that always does the trick for me.
Have a great day little darlins !

Hi Theresa,
I'm so sorry you and your mom are not feeling well. Know that I will be saying a little prayer for you both. Blessings to you and yours and my you feel better soon. Have a beautiful day.


Stacey said...

Theresa, every girl deserves a pity party now and then. You'll be ok in a day or two. :)

I do hope your mom gets better. I'm sure that's very hard and emotional.

Man you sound like me! Thanks for putting it all in words. I finally told the girls they were taking a holiday, they could pick, but I am done with cooking and cooking and cooking!


Theresa said...

Honey, I just checked on you yesterday wondering if you are OK. Sorry to hear that your Mom isn't doing so good. Hope she feels better and you too:) Hey, it isn't a pity party when you are sharing feelings with friends! Have a blessed day!

MARIA said...

Theresa, I am so sorry about your troubles.
Your advice is good, we all need stop, take a deep breath
and count our blessings.
Yesterday I came back from Canada, I was very happy.
Today my daughter had accident, and I was very sad.
Thanks God she is alive and not much injured.
I started count my blessings.

Have a blessed day, my sweet friend!

Hi Theresa...I have missed you. Don't let the cold weather, and your mom's health, and the holidays get you down! It's these valleys that make you strong and when you get to the top of the mountain...just think about the feeling of accomplishment you will get when you look at that beautiful view!

You are a sweet and precious lady. Have a good week!

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Theresa,
Good to hear from you. I'm making your pizza casserole tonight, yum! Sorry to hear about your mother, hope she'll get well soon. Your lamps are going to be cute! Love your little candle holder.

I have informed my family I no longer do Christmas. I am planning on a tea at half past 3 that suites me (ha, that rhymes), but no big cooking, etc. We're gonna play dress up and have tea and little tiny sandwiches. It's gonna be fun! People just don't get how much work it is to put on Christmas!

So twin and I are not the only ones who HATE winter. I have dreams it is winter and I wonder where the summer went. The last 2 summers for us have been very mild. They say we are going to have a BITTER winter. If I didn't have to work and could stay home it wouldn't be so bad. I know there are those who blog that love winter but I don't think the have the snow or the bitter cold we have.
Cheer up things will get better. Hugs~ The Twins

ginny said...

It's ok Theresa to have "those" days!! We all do. I hate winter also. It has been so cold here in Michigan, that we had our heat on already for two weeks. Today, it was almost like Indian Summer should be, but it won't last. By next week, we will be back in the winter temps. That is when I get crazy inside of me. About Feb. I want to do bodily harm to someone!LOL! Hope your mom starts to feel better soon.

Truly sorry you Mom is not feeling well. I am 72 and I sometimes wonder if you kids wonder how I am. I am ok but I wish they would check more often. My husband never gets sick, never has anything wrong and won't ever take a pill. Me I got allergy troubles all the time. I do have someone else do Thanksgiving now. For Christmas I have homemade soup and dessert.

krystyna said...

Hi Theresa!
I think that you feel better now.
Writing is a very good therapy.
When I am crazy I write everything what is in my mind (thanks God nobody reads it). After that I am surpise that my bad mood disappeared.

You and your mom are in my prayers!

Everything will be OK.


krystyna said...

No, it was not me. My youngest sister (in Poland) had an accident today. She was walking and car hit her. Hopefuly she is alive and has broken only heel. My mom was scared, she thought that they hide the truth.
God bless you always!

Rhondi said...

Hi Theresa
I love a party, so here I am! You said it was a party, didn't you? Oh it's a pity party, oh well, lets get out some food, maybe some chocolate and have a glass of wine, or a cup of tea. Let's tell some funny stories of silly things that happened long ago and then count our blessings. If we still feel sad after that, well...
Seriously, I'm sorry you feel so down. I know what it's like. Do whatever you can to cheer yourself up. I'll be praying for your mom.
((hugs)) Rhondi

Beverly said...

Ah, I'm sorry you're feeling down. I will keep you in my prayers.

My mother has gone down since she broke her shoulder in March. It makes me sad, but I know she is trying hard. I, also, know you are an only child - just like me.

Do you need me to send you some cookies? ;-) I'm sending you a hug, too.

SmilingSally said...

You're a Floridian at heart; it doesn't surprise me. I hate winter too. But I love blue skies and pleasant temperatures.

That coffee pot would go in BJ's house!

jeanne said...

OK Theresa, I am here to cheer you up. I wonder if you know how many people are affected by dreary cold weather. Lots! You need some sunshine girl. That's where I come in...Ms. sunshine herself. Come on laugh with me. Theresa, have I told you how much you make me smile with your funny and humorous comments. I treasure your friendship and if I could I'd come right over and take you to lunch. I always have in the back of my mind that we will meet one day. We will, I know it!!!

I am sorry your mom is not doing well. I admit that is a hard thing to take. A worry that won't go away. Pray Theresa, for peace about it. Think about all the wonderful things about your mom and the fun times you have had together.

Now as for cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner, 'don't do it' this year. Once we went out for Thanksgiving and it was 'awesome' not to cook. I mean it. the only think I missed was pie for breakfast the next morning. A tradition in my family. Oh yeah, take a Thanksgiving Vacation from COOKING. Buy a pie. I would. Are you feeling better yet???

Finally, only you can find such bargains like these. You go girl. I didn't know you made lamps. Do you really do that? If so, that is amazing girl. You are amazing in my opinion and start playing some loud happy music. I love the music on your blog. Nothing perks me up faster than some jumping music.

Now I must go to bed, but not before I thank you for my birthday wishes. Now, that should make you happy. You are lots younger than me.
I do love you my dear friend...Jeanne

Hi Theresa! We all need to feel sorry for ourselves sometimes, just don't stay there too long. You do have so much to be thankful for and I know you know it. I feel for the situation with your mom. That is a difficult one. Imagine how she must be feeling also. Try to enjoy the holidays. You don't have to knock yourself out cooking up a storm. Just enjoy your family and treasure the moments. You've often shared some super recipes with us that are very easy. I often make those fudgy cookies and my kids love them every time. Still wanting to make the apple cake you shared about a month ago. You're an inspiration to me. Okay now, get up and go inspire yourself!!

Joyce's Journey said...

Oh, and I LOVE that cute little coffee pot. If you want to get rid of it, I will gladly take it off your hands. Just tell me how much you want for it and the moolah will be in the mail. It would look adorable in my black, white and red kitchen, don't ya think??? BJ wouldn't want it!!!!

I'm just saying . . . :)

Theresa, sorry to hear about your mom and that you are having a hard time passing the torch. I hope things turn around for you and that all be much better soon. On another note, love what you found at the sale.


Sheila :-)


I hope all is well with your Mom...and I've had a few pity parties myself...I'm also not a winter person and it's been cold and rainy here...YUK...
Here is to a better week for you.
Deb :)

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Theresa,
Hope your mom is doing better by now.

I made the pizza casserole and have a picture of it on my blog. It was soooo good. Thank you for sharing!
