Tired and Touched

This evening I was hanging out on Ravelry, as usual (grin). I had posted some yarns for sale on my trade page. I had the opportunity to chat with some really nice people. Which was a wonderful surprise. Lately what I have read on some of the groups has made me very hesitant to post any comments. I really believe that people's snarkiness is to be chalked up to our ever increasingly, or decreasingly, economic crisis. So tonight when I was contacted by lovely people it helped to restore some of my faith in the human race. Which has been basically non-existent lately. Not just because of posts on Ravelry, but things that I have experienced in day to day life.

Spending so much time on the computer, while enjoyable, makes me feel quite drained. Simply because I try and make sure, when dealing with selling things, that I have all my t's crossed and my i's dotted. It's like mental Olympics, at least for me. I'm trying to keep all my ducks in a row as well as trying to actively listen to dh and the boy when they come to talk to me.

After taking care of the sales and chatting with a nice Ravelry-er, I checked out the postings on the Blogging group. This lady had posted that she had a contest going on. So I went to check out her blog. If anyone reads my blog I hope you stop by and read her post. It touched me deeply. Maybe because I have Wee Ones, and sometimes just when I feel really tired I know how hard they are to keep up with. Heck even when I'm not tired they are hard to keep up with. I couldn't imagine chasing them when I was dealing with something like MS. I totally lost any interest in her contest and just thought about trying to spread the word of her challenge. Hopefully some one will see this and post it on their blog.
