Big Cry Baby...

I am having a Cry Baby no sale Monday...instead of a Cyber Monday Sale which is taking place today after the Big Sunday Christmas Sale which took place after the even bigger Saturday Big Blockbuster Christmas sale which was directly after the Humongous Black Friday Sale...........I am saled out, & am feeling instead....discontent, malcontent & just plain miserable...there...I said it.
. M. I . S. E. R . A . B . L . E. 
. G . R . U . M . P . Y . 
...just plain blaaaaa...
. s . o . r . r . y . 
i can't help myself
The sale of our home didn't happen
So now I have to endure more cleaning, more open houses, more disruption, more waiting.
. I .  A . M . F . E . D . U . P .
. P . E . R . I . O . D . 
 The folks from the states who so excitably said that they wanted to buy our house & everything in it have decided to wait till the new year...bah humbug!!!
What a let down...I was so excited & as usual I became too hopeful...now I am in the doldrums sitting in my studio & feeling just plain uninspired...trying to get things done...but instead I feel like I am just spinning my wheels and not making any progress. So I thought I would come in here & whine. I have to say it does help as there are an awful lot of online shoulders to cry on...right my friends?
Anyways...sorry to blunt your Christmas spirit with my griping...but unloading this junk will help me get back to business. I won't be listing anything on TDIPT December 1st because I have been so preoccupied with this dang house *#*%$!#*....opps...sorry!
I am however trying my bestest to become un-GRINCH like & I hope to have a new outlook & new creations for a New Year...am thinking of taking a wee break to do some Personal stuff, Christmas Stuff, Happy Stuff...just for me & my family.
I am sorry to have not replied to all of your comments the last few posts...being a grumpy bear, I just didn't have the gumption to put my mind to replying...I do love you all & I appreciate every one of you shining stars...
YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE!

Thanks for listening...
Susan
XOXO

**getting out pitch pipe***clearing throat***hummmmmm, me, me, me, me, me....(singing) "Lean on me...when you're not strong...and I'll be your friend...I'll help you caaa-rrryyyy on"

Hope this helps you feel a little bit better. I know just how much selling a house can interfere with life. We'd moved to FL and it took us three years (with two homes!) to sell our place in WI. Lost a lot of sleep, we did. They always told us people quit looking at Christmas-time...full of their own stuff. Let go for now and enjoy the holidays.
There might just be one someone who can't live without purchasing another of your sweet creations for her birthday (not to mention anyone specific, but my birthday is Dec. 3rd).

If you need a shoulder to cry on (or punch), I'm here for you!
Love and best wishes,
xoxo

I am sorry about the sale of the house.

I do want to point out something though...the Grinch was inspired in many ways. None of them good...but hey he stapled antlers to the dogs head. Sure it was mean...but it was inspired! Maybe you should put antlers on a mouse?

This too shall pass! Keep your chin up! Kelly

Hope things turn around and you can get into the Christmas spirit. Things happen for a reason, so maybe there's someone better about to make an offer on your house. Anyway, hope your frown turns upside down!

{{{{{HUGS}}}}} Sorry your sale fell through; selling a house is so stressful and is so much work it's no wonder you are feeling out of sorts. Let it go it you can, focus on the JOY of the season and come on back and vent whenever you need to, we're here for you girl! Deb

I am sorry the sale didn't go through - but your blog was fun to read - sorry to say that - but the way you wrote it was funny to me. I have had those feelings about things (especially this time of year) and it was good to see I'm not the only one. I do hope your get your house sold soon. You are so talented and I'm sure once you start working on something you'll feel much better!
Happy Holidays!!

Well poo!!! I don't blame you for being grumpy. What a let down! People can be just so darn wishy washy sometimes that it can make you crazy!
Hang in there girlfriend and take a little you time to have some fun.

ya know what, there is nothing I can say that is going to change what has happend but I know exactly what you are feeling. I don't take disappointments well at all. matter of fact people just tick me off so much when they disappoint me. If I did it my self I can deal with that a lot better then when someone else does it to me. I am so very sorry for you to have to experience such a let down this time of year. I could always say that things happen for a reason and yes I have to agree they do, it just doesn't make it feel any better. you just are going to have to feel it, then let it go and get on with your bad self. Heheheh
Hugs my friend and I do hope that the rest of this season is going to be better then the first part.
take care and just don't let it bum out the rest of the holiday.
