Thank goodness........relax

Today, is the end of a stressful and emotional ten days for me, which included phone calls and e-mails from one end of the country to another.  It  may not have been an earth shattering situation for anyone else, but for me it was.  I will not bore you with the details, but suffice to say, it was not a matter of illness or life or death.   When I feel this way I fill the day with tasks that need no concentration, such as gardening.  My garden has never looked better, all the weeds are gone, so I did accomplish something. Obviously no sewing or quilting done, or I would be doing more reverse sewing than necessary. 

What I did do was asks myself a lot of questions, and answered back, it's difficult not being able to bounce ideas and questions off of  someone else.  My children would have/could have helped, however, this was something that I had to do myself.
 
Am I doing the right thing?  Of course you are, you made the decision months ago. 

Will I have any regrets?  No, it is the right and only sensible decision.

Could it have been handled in a less stressful way?  Likely, but at the time you did what you thought was the best way to proceed.  In the end it has worked out OK for you.

Will it affect my family in a negative way?  No, this is your decision and yours alone, your family will not suffer any ill effects. 

Did or will they question my actions now or in the future?  No, they are OK with what you are doing.

Could it have turned out better than it did?  Yes, it likely would have prior to now but,  as it happened you had no control of any of these circumstances.

Are you happy with the result?  Yes, you are and hopefully by this time next week someone else will be.  A worry, (concern) has now been lifted on your shoulders, ......relax.

Putting my thoughts down in black and white makes me feel  a lot better, my headache is gone and everything is alright with the world again.  Thanks for reading.

A One block Wonder is up on the wall and I can start re-arranging the blocks, again, at some point in time I will have to say enough is enough.  Sandwich the quilt I have made for my bed and also do the same for my grand daughter's quilt.  Time to get at it and get back to work.

The immediate tasks at hand are to do some errands and grocery shop for some fresh veg.

Have a great afternoon, I will
Patricia

Writing things down is a sensible way to address a situation.
