I'm Trying So Hard

I'm really, really trying to get back to crafting, blogging, and commenting - and all the fun things in my life, but it just isn't happening right now.  A very brief update is that I've been busy with the ER, hospital, doctors, back to the ER and hospital, now back home, and caring for Jim.  Bottom line.....his health is just all screwed up......and yes, it's hell getting older.

It's been an extremely long week - actually it's been two weeks I think.  I've completely lost track of time.   I'm one tired stressed out little chicken every single day of the week right now.  When I do have a few minutes and could get back to crafting, I just want to curl up and sleep a little.

I will get back to blogging and visiting everyone's blog soon but just don't know when right now.  Please don't give up on me just yet.

Thanks for stopping by.....
Lynn

Oh you poor thing! I'm so sorry you are going through this stress right now and it sounds like once you are able to settle in with Jim that you need some good sleep! Never worry about us crazy folks out here! Take care of yourself and you'll find time when it comes. For now, take care of you and Jim. Sending best wishes and hugs your way!!

I'm so sorry to hear that Jim's health isn't improving. You need to take care of yourself too and don't worry about blogging. Being a caregiver is HARD! Take care and I continue to pray for you and Jim.

It is important to take care of Jim...yes..but it is even more important to take care of yourself my friend. If your body is telling you to go to sleep instead of crafting, listen to your body and rest! We will all be here when you get back!

I won't give up on you ever Lynn, but I'm so sorry things have taken another turn for the worse for Jim. I hope and pray all turns out well for both of you during these difficult times. Chin up, and take all the time you need to care for Jim. Life is short, and your priorities are in order. Crafting will come when you aren't so pressed for time and energy. (((Hugs)))

PLEASE just worry about yourself and Jim and don't even think about blogging or creating right now. If you get an extra minute just lay down and relax. I am here for you as I know all of your followers are and will always be. Just stay healthy yourself and know my thoughts are with you, Jim and Rambo.
Hugs,
Donna

NanaConnie said...

Oh Lynn, it hasn't been a good start to the New Year for you or Jim. You know you are both in my prayers and right now you are right where you belong. Taking care of Jim. Rest when you can and don't worry about the blogging or commenting. Everyone will be right here for when you can. Sending super big hugs to you my friend, Brenda

You poor dear.... praying everything starts falling into place soon. Hope that hubby takes quick turn for the better. Please hang in there. Sending a big old hug.

lauren bergold said...

oh i'm sorry! what a start to your new year!!!! thinking of you both and sending "get well" and "getting back to normal" vibes. even if it's maybe a "new normal" so to speak. lots of love to you and some awesome naps!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

MaryH said...

You hang in there, Sunshine. When you have a few minutes to rest, do so! The blogging, crafting, etc and all that can wait until you have time once again to just concentrate on that and not all the other stuff that is going on just now. Lots of prayers. Rest when you get a chance, and big hugs. Prayers too.

Lori Kobular said...

Oh Lynn, I am so sorry your husband isn't doing well right now. Caring for a loved one is no easy job! I don't know why they call the older years Golden Years, there doesn't seem to be anything golden about them. Rest! Whenever you can rest! You need to do that for yourself right now. I look forward to seeing your gorgeous cards and your great sense of humor again soon, but until then ~ take care of yourself too!!

Lynn McAuley said...

Focus on your health and Jim's. Know that you both are in my every prayer. Sending my love and best wishes.

Tammy said...

Hi Lynn, so sorry things are a little difficult right now. Don't worry about us and blogging, just take care of Jim and get plenty of rest for yourself! Sending hugs and prayers!

Kat W said...

Poor you, that all sounds very stressful and tiring, and of course, Jim is your focus right now. I just hope it all gets a bit calmer and easier really soon for you both and I'll certainly be here waiting for you as and when you are able to pop back into blogland :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx

Diane said...

Oh Lynn I am sorry to hear how stressful life has become for you and Jim, gosh I hope things improve.

Hugs Diane

I know what you mean. It is that way here as well. Can't seem to find time any more with all of the demands on Jill and I. We went through many years of of running back and forth to her and my parents and in-laws trying to help take care of them. Take care of your Jim and don't forget about yourself as well. You both are still being held up in prayer every day.

Love, Hugs and Blessings
Jim

Di said...

Hi Lynn! I'm really sorry that I missed this post - it was just a comment you left on Carol L's blog that made me come and check. I was always a folllower of yours and this is the second blog today I've found I'm no longer following - even though I have a Google account! Weird! Following you again now.

I was saddened to read that things are rough on the health front right now and I do hope that things settle down soon. We miss you - but will all be here waiting for you when you find you want to come out and play again.

Love and hugs

Di xx

Thinking of you Lynn and praying for you and Jim. Hope he recovers quickly and you guys can get back to a better, dull routine. Look forward to hearing more from you. Hugs, Maggie

Shelly Schmidt said...

Thinking of you and keeping you in prayers! Please keep your own health in mind : )

nwilliams6 said...

A million hugz to you. I know you are tired physically and mentally. This has all got to be draining you both. I am sorry I haven't kept up and already had you in both in my prayers. I see you have made a few cards after this so I hope that means things have settled down a bit. Definitely I will be praying for you guys. I agree getting old is not for sissies.
