Weekly Stitching

Weekly Stitching...the first time I've used that post title for a very long time and it feels good! Last week I had just started on Stitch:
I didn't finish him, but I did finish the second page of the row:
I'm not sure how much I'll get done next week since I'm pulling double duty again at work next week (I hate holidays), but I fully intend to spend all Thanksgiving day trying to get caught up stitching for the week.

I had to redo my hair Friday night...apparently the shelf life of the hair color is two weeks. The blonder areas were still purple, but the rest had faded. Funnily enough, it faded in a way that looked like I had my hair highlighted purple and it was pretty cool, it just wasn't purple enough. This time I went a bit higher and only left the crown my natural color but I kind of wish I had done my entire head. It's a definite in the next two weeks. I figured I would be too insecure having purple hair, but I've really enjoyed it!

I'm beginning to think that my meds are already not working anymore though. I had a horrible work week and my mood is getting dark again. I even called the therapist's office but she's out until after Thanksgiving. Typical. I still sound happy and perky but everyone is getting on my last nerve and I'm constantly bored even when I'm way too busy. I did a lot of yelling last week. I keep expecting every week to get better, but it never seems to or, if it does, the next week is even worse. Why do I even bother with hope in the first place? It's never been kind to me. If only I could be a would so suit me better. But until then, here's hoping next week is better.

Love seeing Stitch, that looks so good! Glad your hair faded well and hope it continues. Mood wise, I hope the holiday break helps.

Wow, I do love that design & you've made terrific progress!!!
Glad you're going to go ahead with the purple hair, it really suits you.
Don't worry to much about your mood, believe me, work can get anyone's mood down sometimes!
Just keep taking your medicines, don't mess it up, I'm sure your body will adjust soon.

That is great progress and I'm so happy to see you stitching again.

Have fun with the hair colour! Sounds like purple is the right one for you.

Excellent progress, glad to hear you are stitching again!
I do hope you can get something sorted out with your low mood.

Wow, that is fantastic progress on Stitch. Glad the hair is working out well too.
Not so good about the meds though, maybe not quite the right mix or dose? Maybe you need a little extra when work is particularly bad? Do the darker afternoons affect you at all? Daylight does make a difference to moods and seratonin levels.

Gorgeous progress! I hope work calms down soon. Are you allowed to have headphones in? Maybe listening to some Duran Duran will help the stress of the day.
