Life or something like it...

I've been sick the past week which means I've have more time to think too much.. that causes me to get in one of my moods.. but then I remember everything that has happened to me in the last year..... and then I think I'm actually doing not all that bad. Everyone says I need to give myself some credit... but I don't really feel that way. I have to learn to be tougher and not be trusting with people even when they appear to be someone I can trust. People who take the time and effort to show they care.. to work their way under your skin, through your wall.... until you actually feel something for them..... then.. where are they?... not with you...... it makes you feel very low and it just sucks out that last little bit of love and trust you had left.


On a better note..I got an awesome prezzie from Kristina over the weekend.. one of her Ellies.. I love him. I don't have a photo of him.. but he is amazing. I will take one tomorrow. It's too dark in here or I would go grab my camera. 


I had loads of fun getting ready for the Teddies Worldwide show. I have a few bears left over.. I will likely put them up on Etsy next week or over the weekend. Other than that as soon as I'm well enough I will start on my new floors. I can't wait to see them down already.
Hope you are all having a good week. I will try to pick my blog back up again. My apologies for how dark it's been.
Hugs,
Melly

Teddies worldwide and other ramblings.....



Got another bear ready for the Teddies Worldwide show. If you've not gone to vote yet please do! 
Had company over,  armed with pizza and the last Harry Potter movie. It was pretty good although I would have liked to see a few things portrayed differently. I found the death of important people seemed to be in passing. I found that disturbing after they have spent so much time with character development.. and then it's like "well they are dead, off we go". Anyway, I guess I'm putting too much thought into it.. lol. 


Go vote!!


I had better get off the computer and go get some work done... I think I might sneak over the the bakery... I've not had my fix of sugar and cholesterol today.. lol.

Found this quote today... and I think it sums up the last few years of what happened to my life.......


“What kills love? Only this: Neglect. Not to see you when you stand before me. Not to think of you in the little things. Not to make the road wide for you, the table spread for you. To choose you out of habit not desire, to pass the flower seller without a thought. To leave the dishes unwashed, the bed unmade, to ignore you in the mornings, make use of you at night. To crave another while pecking your cheek. To say your name without hearing it, to assume it is mine to call.” - Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

"On the journey of life, just find someone as normal as you

Pinball and other ramblings.

Went out today for lunch and some much needed retail therapy and was so excited to find the restaurant we went to has 3 pinball machines.. one of them being a favorite of mine that I do not own. I must get back there soon.










I bought new flooring for some of the rooms in the house. I am looking forward to starting that project.. it will be a big one. I have paint and floor now for 2 rooms and just as soon as I have my show bears all done I will get working on the house again.


 I am busy getting ready for the Teddies Worldwide show while trying not to get sucked down into a depression. I've been feeling it lately and fighting it in any way I can. Life just keeps giving me obstacles and I start to wonder if it's really worth climbing them.


Anyway, I just thought I would check in,
Hugs,
Melanie

Loosing my marbles... yes, oh yes..


So the Teddies Worldwide show scheduled for the end of the month had a last minute cancellation... So... what does this mean??? Yep. I'm just crazy enough to leap into that spot. So look forward to some new bears coming at the end of the month.. lol! 
I managed to get one of my pinched nerves in my neck.. likely due to all the work I've been doing in the house... so this will give me a good chance to heal up and get some motivation to get back into the studio.
