Sometimes Life Sucks

There is just nothing you can do about it. Sometimes life just sucks. And when that happens the sissy, wuss bags lay down and give up. I'm not a sissy, wuss bag.

There is no snow on the ground so I just keep going. I spent today putting up fence posts and taking down other fence posts. Rolling up and and taking down the old wire. Old wire on a cold blowy day doesn't do much for your hands. But I got a fair amount done none the less. Soon I'll be ready to have the neighbor down to auger out the holes for the wood corner posts. I still have plans for a round pen..... NEVER SAY DIE!!!

The other day when it rained I built my binding jig for my little books. I can't give up on that either. No matter what, I can't seem to quit. Things get harder but I can't quit. I seem to have the need to just keep beating my head against the wall. Bruised and bloody but still moving forward. The bruised and bloody is mostly emotional. Though I did raise a goose egg on my head today after hitting myself on the noggin with the post pounder. That's okay.... sometimes a bit of pain brings about clarity.

I know things will get better though... I know this. I have a dream to catch.



  1. Reading Sister Creek Carriage Works' comment about being "too strong", made me think because I've been "accused" :-) of the same thing... At some point, I stopped banging my head against the wall and suddenly things started to fall into place. It was very strange... As soon as I stopped MAKING things happen, they just... did happen. I can't explain it any better, but maybe food for thought anyway....

  2. There's nothing sissy wuss bags about wearing gloves when you are working with old wire. Take care of yourself - inside and out. ((HUGS))

  3. It is sooo hard to find a real good working glove for a woman's hand!!! I did have a pair that belonged to my oldest daughter. I threw them away when i had worn them out to where the fingers were open from the finger tip to past the first knuckle. I am once again looking for a glove that fits and is suitably heavy.
