Tired and Wrung Out

I've been feeling really tired and wrung out for the past two weeks. I've been taking antibiotics and ibuprofen for the toothache I've had and I think between the both of them, they are dragging me down. All I want to do is sleep. My dentist told me that I have a cracked tooth and that I need a root canal, a new filling, and a crown. I understand the root canal and the crown, but I'm confused about the new filling. In the meantime, he has decided to retire, so not only do I have to go to a special dentist to get the root canal, I now have to find a new dentist. I really hate it because I loved my old one.

Somehow I feel like I'm repeating myself. It could be that I've talked about this in a previous post. Either that or I've thought about it so much that I think I posted about it. If I've posted about it before, I apologize for the repetition. My days seem to be running together too.

Well, on a good note, my peonies are blooming like crazy and I cut some for a tabletop arrangement.

I've also been hand piecing some 5" x 5" squares, and then I decided to make a small quilt square. Then I thought, what am I going to do with a small quilt square? Then I decided it could be used as a pretty mat under a vase of flowers, or a mat for a candle or whatever I want to use it for. I really like sewing these by hand because it doesn't require alot of physical effort on my part, which right now I couldn't muster up the energy to do if I wanted to. I can sit in my recliner and watch TV while doing it and talk to Eddie. Then if I get sleepy, I can go take a nap. Of course I can only takes naps on the weekends because I can't at work.

I made two of them. One in lavendar colors and the other one in some yellow.

I think another thing that is dragging me down is work. We have several projects coming up this summer and my boss is all geared up to get started and finished. The more geared up she gets, the more wrung out I seem to feel with her sense of urgency. I think I'm burned out and I need a vacation. The good news is that we are going to Florida in two weeks and I can't wait.

Pretty!! Your little quilts look gorgeous! And I'm so sorry about your toothache! Try to get a nap in, and good luck finding a new dentist! :) On the upside, it's a great excuse to pamper yourself! ;P

Oh my goodness! The Secret Garden is such a beautiful book! I can imagine why it would be so sad to end it! I'm glad to find another reader with good taste! ;)
