Not trying to depress any of you, just telling you where my head is right now. Overall, I still think life is good, and I'm so glad to have this group of lovely people to hang out with every week. I hope you don't mind me indulging myself in some memories today.

Your blocks turned out really great! Love the stratification.

I was thinking of you and your mom the other day - I'm not sure why you came to mind but you did. She was a beautiful woman, what great photos of her.

Thanks, I was not thrilled with the one with the rocks fabric at first, but after seeing it behind me in the video I've changed my mind, I really like it.

I try not to talk about personal stuff too much, but it's been on my mind so much I just decided, it's part of me I'm leaving that part in the video. You can also tell the difference me filming at the end of the day instead of the morning, I look and sound tired.

Love the blocks, especially the one with the fault. The fabric on both was perfect.

I lost my mom when I was 25 and still have times that I become nostalgic and teary. But it does get better with time and I laugh way more than I cry when remembering her and some of her antics.

I almost cut that part of the video out, but then decided, you guys have seen me gross without showering, in my pajamas, etc, why not with my heart a bit raw too. I was just aout 25 in that college graduation photo. I can't imagine losing a parent at that age or even earlier. It was hard enough as a grown up with a kid of my own. That's what I'm working toward, focusing on the happy, good memories, not the ones from the last year of her life.

I was kind of "meh" about the blocks when I was making them, but the more I look at them the more they are growing on me, especially the one with the rock fabric.

The blocks look nice, I love the rocky look.
Stay positive Jules.

Thanks, I like them more now than when I first finished them. They are growing on me. Just one more set of Birthday Blocks and the swap is done for this year.

I love your blocks they are great. I can completely understand the feelings about your mum, I lost mine 9 years ago and I find the last few weeks of October hard, that's her anniversary and her birthday was 5th November, its so hard. It's good to talk about things though, thats why I love this group no one judge's and everyone is supportive. Xxx

Thanks!

I'm trying to think of the better memories with mom instead of her last couple of years during her big decline. It's starting to get easier to bring up the good memories in spite of them being less recent. That's a good thing.

What a sweet tribute to your Mom, and such good memories. This year is 20 years since my Dad died - hard to believe - and that anniversary was spent sitting in the hospital with my Mom. So I think all of us here relate to what you're saying.

Love the blocks, my first thought about the orange/brown one was that looks like a fault, so success! :)

Thanks, I am lucky to have you folks because some of you truly know from experience what this kind of weird conflict of emotions feels like.

That's a relief on the block. I need to get busy on Cat's this weekend so I can get them in the mail.
