I made "Bugs" little sundress last night, with a matching hair bow. The dress has an elastic top with ribbon ties so we'll see if she likes it. Right now she's going through a "too tight" phase so she'll decide for herself if she likes the dress. I hope so, even though it was one of those materials with the elastic already in it. I also finished a placemat that "Race Queen" started for her mother. She has already decided sewing is not her cup of tea. She prefers making jewelry, either necklaces or bracelets. Naturally, all the women of the family have several bracelets.

The weather is so hot here - we haven't gotten much rain this week and the temps have been high 90's. It's too hot to breath......

I went to a childs funeral this morning. The little boy was 3 years old and drowned in the swimming pool at his mother's house. It was hard, but with God's help I made it through the funeral without a lot of tears. All funerals are difficult since our Jessie is now a Heavenly Angel.

I took a Lyrica last night at 9:00 p.m. and this morning at 6:30 a.m. I still didn't want to get out of bed. The leftover feeling is like being drunk with a bad hangover, and it's been several years since we've done any partying. I never have been much on taking medicines and I guess this is one that doesn't agree with me. So I took 2 mild pain pills before coming to work and 3 Arthritis Tylenol at lunch. This is the first time today I don't feel sore. I'm glad Dr T gave me a sample of the Lyrica so I didn't waste my money purchasing this myself.

A follow-up on the previous blog : Dr. T prescribed Lyrica for the fibro, but when I take that I could eat everything in sight and can't seem to stay out of the refrigerator. If I continue like that I'd be as big as a cow. So, I didn't take any yesterday, finally fell asleep at 1:15 a.m. this morning, was in a medium amount of pain, and only slept until 4:00 a.m.., at midnight I wished I had taken the Lyrica at 9:00 p.m., like I had been doing, I knew 1:00 a.m. was too late and I would want to sleep past 6:00 a.m. when I'm supposed to get ready for work. There must be a happy medium somewhere -- does any one know of any or what are you taking?

How do I start this post? I went to the doctor's yesterday and the diagnosis I thought it was going to be is true - I have fibromyalgia. That was the only thing that could explain some of the symptoms - chronic fatigue, tiredness, lack of sleep, sore muscles & joints. I had been taking slight pain pills fro what we thought was arthritis but since the muscles are so sensitive he changed the medication. I know I'm getting older but still I didn't think I should give "out of steam" so fast that I couldn't finish a small chore. Anyway, I'll go on from here - now that we know. Several of my cousins have fibro and according to the internet its a predisposition and somewhat hereditary. My mom was more upset than I, but she already sees the effects on other people. I follow a blogger who has fibro and she was so kind as to answer my comment. It helps knowing that I can reach out to someone. I think it is so strange that I feel more comfortable talking with my blogger friends than my "real life" friends (whom I haven't told yet).
I changed the main picture on the top of the blog. Once again, I was inspired by a fellow blogger. Her pillow was cute with all the yo yo's and my mom gave me several, so I made a pillow. I used a navy background instead of a white. I have so many projects started that I need to finish - I guess I need to pick up the pace to get them done.....and to the family members I promised them to....

Pillow Swap

I did a pillow swap with and my pillow arrived Saturday. It's so pretty, my colors are pink and all country colors so this fits in my decor nicely. It's always such fun to see who sends your pillow to you, since the names are given in secret.
The top picture doesn't do it justice, I was trying to get close so you could see the flowers - they really are pretty.
Thank you to jamie and my swap buddy....
