The Simple Woman's Daybook for Monday, July 20, 2009


Outside my's raining.

Waiting…seems to be what I do most lately.

Catching up on…laundry. It's a never ending battle.

I am thinking...that today is not a good day. Tom and I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon and evening arguing. I need to think more and feel less. At the very least, I'd like to just feel a little less.

I am thankful for...not going crazy.

From the kitchen...I have no idea. Oddly enough, I have a general food blog and another food blog I do for my local online newspaper and right now I could care less about food.

I am wearing... an alumni t-shirt, bike shorts and flip-flops.

I am creating... nothing. I'm not feeling at all creative. I don't feel like sharing. I want to just go inside myself and stay there for awhile.

I am going... no where.

I am reading...nothing.

I am hoping...for very little. I am trying to let go of any expectations.

I am remembering…what my life was like before.

I am hearing...thunder.

Around the house...except for the rain and thunder, it's quiet.

One of my favorite things... being alone. Sometimes being alone is far better than the alternative.

A few plans for the rest of the week …I'm not sure. Maybe a few errands. I'd like to make a couple of market bags, too.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

When the going gets tough, I just want to go to the beach and feel the sand caress my bare feet and the ocean breeze on my face.

The Simple Woman’s Daybook originated with Peggy Hostetler at The Simple Woman’s Daybook. Peggy is on vacation for the summer.

While Peggy is away Grandmother Wren is hosting.

Not sure what you are going through. But I do know the feeling. My husband and I have been losing everything for the past 2 years. We have bitten at each other we have turned our home life upside down at times. We realize that is not good for us or our children. We are comment and we are going through this together, we need to cry on each others shoulder. And most of all praise GOD. And lay this at his feet. Best book I read latetly was The Praying Wife. Check out this blog she posted daily there were over 200 of us reading and praying.

Saying a prayer for you.

I'm so sorry, Terri.
You have a gift for describing your experience - I know that most women would read what you've written here and find themselves transported back to a time when they were living the same sort of day.
I do hope that things will get easier as the week moves along.
God bless you, Terri and thank you for sharing so much of yourself in your Daybook.
