Everything retrograde



I know I haven't written in a while, with my life being upside down lately.
This is just a short update post, but I still hope to resume my previous,
more prolific blogging habits soon - at least in time for Halloween :)

So. I picked up my new meds and tonight will be the first time in my life
that I will be trying anything other than anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds.
I don't want to say more about it at the moment, except that I have reached
a point where I am willing to try just about anything, and that there probably
will be a lengthier post about this coming sometime in the near future.






My store is finally and officially up for sale and the countdown
to unemployment has begun. Most likely it will be a lengthy process,
but we've hired a realtor to handle any negotiations, and that's a load off.
My dead-line is Halloween. If the store isn't sold by then, I'm closing it down.






Trying to go back to school will not be as easy as it first sounded.
Apparently my chance at getting a degree ran out this spring, and I have to
apply for dispensation to get back in. On top of that, it is unclear if some of
my Uni points are just too old to be allowed to make up part of my degree. Ugh.






I made this thick grunge looking hat because I needed a distraction,
and because a friend reminded me, and turned me back on to, crocheting.
I don't really wear hats because they make my short thin hair look like crap,
but if we should get a proper "wolf winter" this year, I am prepared.





So, that's what's up with me. On a much larger (and superstitious) scale
apparently just about every planet is going retrograde at the moment,
 tonight is a full blue moon - and it's only 3 months to Halloween!
Craziness and spookiness abounds. Stay hydrated out there.

  1. Hoping the meds work for you. Love the hat too, but I know what you mean about the hair thing because mine is pretty thin too. I always feel a bit silly wearing hats, I don't know why, but ai wish I didn't!

    1. Thank you! I have (and am :)) a hot head and feel uncomfortable wearing hats indoors for even a few minutes - and I seriously have to take a shower to fix my ugly hat hair.

  2. Love your hat! I To have gosimur hair! Had the same hair my whole, long life! Except for a touch or 2?3?4?....
    So long and straight, that's it NO curl.....straight, that's all I get!
    Well then learn a new crafty craft!......sew hobo bags? make pointed hats! or altered books?
    You know WE! can keep you amused while you decide!
    Have a weekend at peace! Huge Hug! xoDebi

    1. What is gosimur hair..? I like my curls, I just wish I had more hair :)

      Altered books sounds interesting. I will have to google to find out what that is. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I really love the hat! How about opening an etsy shop to sell all your creative wares?

    I'm hoping your new meds will be just what you need. Halloween is definitely something to look forward to, and as for hair, I'm so tempted to chop all mine off when the weather's really hot.

    Enjoy your weekend, lovely lady ♥

    1. Thank you very much <3 But I only make a couple of thing a year and I can't put pressure on myself to make more, because then the small amount of peace and pleasure I get from creating just fizzles out.

      Maybe you can sell your locks, like Sylvie the Little corp goth girl, did :)

  4. Hey, that's a great idea Yvonne has ... an Etsy shoppe! For when you and everybody you know tires of getting hats for gifts, because some of us don't know how to crochet and we might need one if it's a bad winter. ;)

    Hope these meds will be good ones, although I'm sure it will take a while to be able to tell. Craziness and spookiness indeed! I'm looking forward to it this year now, since your last post. And I think I will decorate as if an endless stream of children will be popping by on All Hallows Eve, even though I know that's ludicrous.

    Stay hydrated out there - that's funny! :D

    1. You aren't saying you don't know how to crochet hats, right? Because I would be more than happy to make you one!

      It will be a few weeks before I know if these meds work, but like I said on facebook, I just don't know how to conduct a normal existence, with work and such, in the meantime.

      Oh, I wish I could visit you for Halloween. I'm sure if you start spreading the word around town already now, you'll have plenty of visitors for Halloween :)

  5. Woo so excited for Halloween! That sucks about school though. :( My brother experienced something similar and he wasn't even out of school for that long, only a year, but when he returned they said he'd have to take the whole program over again. I'm pretty sure it was just some load of BS to get him to pay them more money but he should've stuck it out and stayed in school, I think he only had two months left to go.

    That's a very cozy looking hat. I hope your meds work out for you and your shops sells quickly! :)

    Svar
    1. I don't see how that BS they pulled on your brother could even be allowed :( I can understand that my 10-year-old points are a different story though, unfortunately. I will find out for sure next week.

      Thank you for your luck wishes!

  6. I hope the new meds work out for you. This retrograde has been a doozy! I've had lots of problems and drama from others because of it. In fact all of July has been pretty tough. I feel like a passenger on an out of control drama train. I really need to simplify my life. :)

    1. Thank you!
      I try to cut out all drama from my life, but unfortunately I'm the most dramatic person I know... :)

  7. I love the hat! I am all about hats. Outdoors, indoors, I wear a hat (do not judge me) :-D
    I sure hope the new meds will do the job and make you feel better, soon. I also hope that everything will eventually work out for the best.

    1. I would love to be able to pull off a hat look - but mostly, to just be comfortable wearing one. I'm not judging, you go for it!

      Thank you for your well wishes <3

  8. Yay for the Halloween countdown! I really hope the meds work. Change is always scary when it comes to new medication or when it comes to changing your career. I hope returning to university works out and I hope your business is sold to someone who just loves it. Sending you light, love, and a heavy dose of hope!

    1. Thank you for all your encouraging words! This whole year has been about scary changes, and I just want things to start working out, I want to land on my feet.

  9. I know it's hard when the meds just aren't doing the trick anymore. One will try anything to get a handle on life. i hope yours help you find your balance. I think you're brave for talking about it. I love that there are so many supportive kind people we interact with online. Be well and be gentle with yourself.

    1. Thank you. I have tried every anti-depressant in the book and am considered treatment resistant, so most of my life has actually been without drugs. But it's just too damn hard, so I'm putting my hopes to something completely different thsi time.

      Radera
  10. Sorry you are getting through a rough patch. I think you have given yourself a good deadline for the store, it will give you time to sell it.

    1. Thank you, Guillaume. I hope it's enough time, but these are hard times for small businesses.

  11. I hope the new meds work, I really do. Being on different meds constantly seems devastating =(
    Picking up an old hobby sounds like a great way freshen things up-- I myself am thinking about starting up my beading and wire work again, though I wonder if I will ever get my tools and supplies down from my Momma's house, heh.

    Svar
    1. Most of my life I've actually been without drugs, and it's been 6 months since I went off the last one that didn't work. It's not the drugs that are devastating, it's my chronic depression that has so far been treatment resistant.

      Radera
  12. I keep my fingers crossed that these meds work for you. Also that your shop sells off well and you can start a new future without it!

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Thank you, it would be a great weight off my shoulders to be rid of the store, so I can concentrate on things that make me feel better.

      Radera
  13. Best of luck with the new meds. I hope you are already getting some good results. I'm also hoping that the process of selling the shop takes a lot less time that you're predicting *fingers crossed*. Love the hat, the colors are so you.

    Three months until Halloween! ♥

    1. Thank you, but so far the meds are just making me sleep for 12 hours straight and walk around like a zombie the rest of the time :( I am hoping the change will come soon.

  14. Retrograde seems to be messing with everyone! Good luck and love!

    1. Thank you!
      I don't believe in such things anymore, but reading about this occurrence it does seem to fit my life pretty well this time :)

  15. Sorry this is coming so late, I have been all over the place lately.
    I love the hat it's pretty!
    *hugs*

    1. Thanks Hannah!
      Don't worry about it, it makes two of us. I am scrambling to get some control over all my changing situations...
