Thorn In My Side

Does anyone reading this suffer from endometriosis? I'm so tired of putting up with the effects it has on my body. It was particularly bad again today, and I felt like ranting a little about it, as well as seeing if anyone can commiserate. I'm sure lots of people, especially Mr. BTEG, can relate to having a disease that sometimes disables you from doing things that you want to do, no matter what it is.

Thinking About What My Daughter Said

I was having a text conversation with my eldest daughter the other night. She thinks she might like to be a writer, so she's trying to write a bit every day. Her roommate was out of town working on a play production for a director they both know. The Musician has acted in a local play with this director; it's how she met her roommate. The Musician said that she was a little jealous of her roommate, and I asked her if she had thought about acting in something again. She told me that it's best for now if she focuses on one thing, in this case, her writing.

I thought today how applicable that is to my own life. What is important to me is fashion history, sewing, and the world of doll collecting. In the past, I have felt embarrassed by the doll collecting, the fashion history is only interesting to a few, and I'm not one of those sewers you'll see on Pinterest who comes up with new and exciting projects weekly. But they are what interests me, what drive me to research and do. The people who blog everyday, that's their thing, writing on a blog. While I love to blog here, and am going to keep doing it, I'm not going to feel guilty that I don't come up with something new and witty to write about every day. I'll just post as often as I can.
