Excuses, Excuses

For not writing or stitching.  And all of them are lame. 

Too busy.
Too tired.
Days that are too boring to write about.
Not enough stitching to warrant a post.
Bothersome poor vision during these long nights.
Dishpan hands.
People plopping their hineys in my stitching chair and not getting out of it.
And so on and so on and so on.

Anyway.  I've given some thought to leaving this blog behind altogether, but jeez...after writing here for all of these years, it seemed so wrong to just walk away.

So I guess I won't.  I'm moving on towards 2013 and letting go of my guilt about hardly posting in 2012. 

 Thanks Ryan.  You're the man.


  1. I think we all have those moments...hang in there....

  2. Good for you for hanging in there. Don't feel pressure about posting - just post when you want and know that we'll be here to read you! Happy New Year!

  3. Ha Ha. I have all those same problems but never thought of dishpan hands.

    Also, my kids have been hauling out all of our old home movies. Those take real concentration so no stitching. I don't want to miss a second of those little guys who are now all grown.

    Happy New Year,


  4. Oh, Lee, it would be a shame not to see your blog. I would so miss seeing Ryan otherwise! ;-)

    I haven't been blogging for awhile too since I had a new contract (work) and I had considered just giving up. So, I hear you on that topic. But I think it's worthwhile to keep at it.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Oh wow...I could have written this post my very own self!! I have often thought of leaving the blog behind but then I think of the many friends I have made through it and I quickly snap back!
    I'm so glad you aren't hanging it up.
    Happy New Year to you and yours.

  6. Now he could talk me into anything :D

    Glad you're hanging around in blogland. Just blog when you want to, it's supposed to be fun!!

  7. Don't you dare, or I won't come to see you next time I am in the 'burgh!

  8. Can you tell I've been suffering some of the same on my blog? You are so right - after all these years we cannot walk away now. Hang in there. The occassional post is much better than no posts!

  9. Some days/weeks/months are better than others and sometimes a picture will do! Just keep Ryan around, how won't lead you wrong!

  10. Don't give up on your blog. I would really miss you! After all you must listen to Ryan's advice... :)

  11. Glad you decided to hang on. It appears my following posts suffers from the same malady as you were feeling about getting around to posting. How do I get Ryan to come put me in order? LOL Your posts are always so funny and I laugh out loud at some. Post when you can and when you can't it's OK. No one is keeping score.
