Feeling pretty low.

Just a quick one to let you know that I have been away ona family weekend to the Lake District. It is my parents' 50th anniversary so they took all of us away to a hotel for a few nights. It would have been great except that my sister and I have fallen out and we didn't speak a word to each other all weekend. I had previously texted her and she hadn't responded so it was obvious she didn't want to put things right with me. It is very sad as I don't generally fall out with people and never with my family. My other sister was sticking to her like glue and at one point they even wore the same outfit. It has always been the case that they go off together and leave me out of things and this is just what they have done. She upset me so badly the other week that I was in tears on my bed for over an hour and my dh was away and my dd was upset by it. The baby didn't move for a week after the upset so I was worried by that too. It's moving fine now though. I don't think she realises how bad she has upset me and I don't think it's something that will solve itself until she decides to put things right. So I am feeling very low and so I did not do much for the August SAL challenge but here is what I have accomplished. Very sorry to depress you all.
August SAL

Hang in there. Everything will be OK. It seems that everytime there is a big family event, someone ends up getting hurt and upset. It seems it never fails. It will all work out fine. Focus your attention on your dh and dd and your stitching.

Sending good thoughts.

Jenn said...

{HUGS} Oh Hazel I hope everything works out for you with your sister soon. Just concentrate on DD and DH and everything will work out.

The HAED your working on this month looks great. I just started mine the other day and I hope one day I'll have enough shown to share with everyone. It just feels like it will take forever to get to that point.

I just e-mailed you.

I'm so sorry that your sister's attitude had to spoil this special occasion. Hard on your parents too. Hopefully it will all work out but in the meantime take care of yourself Hazel and enjoy DH, DD and this new little wonder.

Your HAED looks lovely and must be fun to work on.

Hi Hazel...thanks for visiting my blog. I love your stitching! As far as your sister is concerned, if you have a chance, check out my Bookends-r-us blog and scroll to the book "What's so amazing about Grace" It's a wonderful book about the power of forgiveness. I'm sure you can get ahold of it on Amazon.com. Email me if you have any questions...my prayers are with you.

Cheryl said...

Oh Hazel, im so sorry to hear things are still bad with your sister. Thinking of you and praying too.
Look after yourself {{hugs}}

So sorry things went so badly with your sister. And at such a special occasion too! I've been through similar with my own sister so I know what its like, and at our mother's wedding! Try to think of yourself though and the baby for now and look after the 2 of you!! {{{hugs}}}

Your WIP looks great. I hope you and your sister can work things out soon.

Sending happy thoughts your way Hazel, hoping things work themselves out soon. Take care of yourself now! Your stitching is amazing, I find it takes my mind of things when they get me down, perhaps it'll help you too?

Karin said...

I hope things work out soon for you and your family. You're making good progress on the HAED - congrats!

Vonna said...

Your HAED is gorgeous!!

AND I wish I didn't understand, but I do...I've always have had a difficult relationship (at best) with my middle brother. We've had lots of issues throught ht eyears and there have been many, many times when I've felt the odd man out. What has always made me feel best is that I have my own family now and my own little support system. You made a try to reconcile by texting her...if she's wanting to be so difficult that she didn't answer then let her stew. What goes around, comes around. She'll come around in her own time. Put it out of your head Hazel, you'll be better for it.

Your WIP is beautiful!

I've got a sister whose hard to get along with as well. I think I've just learned to thicken my skin when she's around over the years.

Nicola said...

Hazel, I am sorry that your weekend was spoilt. My relationship with my brother isn't always that good so I know how you feel. I do hope things will improve soon. Take care of yourself.

Jamie said...

Oh Hazel. I don't have any siblings but I have a few friends going through similar situations and it seems like the hardest thing ever to go through.

I hope things work out however they are supposed to.

Your stitching is looking fantastic!!
