I cheated!  I used two different patterns, the headband is so versatile that I have to share!

I feel like a mess.

I don't fit anywhere.

living life, or trying to

I have amazing kids.  I have an ok job.  I have given up on the idea of love or finding someone to  make me theirs.  Topher admitted to me that he did nothing while I worked all day.

I'm lost

I hate that they made me come home to him, this house, this mess.  It's a wreck.  I'm a wreck.  I just want to cry.  We've been fighting more.  I feel extra irritable.  I'm trying so hard to catch my breath and cope.  It just hurts.

Anyone else?

Occasionally when I buy clothes on clearance I buy something waay too large and never end up wearing it.  Today I modified a tank top that was on a medium sized hanger.  It's now a drawstring top.  Creativity is food for my soul :)
