“Totally have the blues here.”


Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: My sister in law bailed out on me for my last show, and she knew I was completely counting on her help! I hate to complain, but I really needed her because my ankle is still not all the way better and I had 2 shows back to back, and lots of work! Sometimes I feel like all the things I do for everyone else makes no real difference. I am surely just feeling sorry for myself...

    :( Sorry. The good you do really is important. But I think I know exactly what that’s like.

    Well this is a very pretty blue pick. Sometimes I get beyond these kind of times by telling myself I am lucky to have any help at all. I know it is depressing to feel you do it all alone, but trust me we’re never alone. On those days I just say Lord I know I needed the exercise. Thank you for the help. (I hate exercise and house work.)

    Usually, it doesn’t depress me so, but lately it has been a little overwhelming. I volunteer 4 hours a week at my childrens karate school, clean at my in laws one day a week, and have all my kids to take care of too! When my SIL’s health was ailing last winter, and she was getting divorced, she moved in here and I took care of her for three months! I also packed up her house, and helped move her into an apartment. I dont think it was the help, so much as the dissappiontment, ya know?

    I know, but, you have to be who you are, Bubbly, and that’s a nice person!! I think in the end that’s all that matters!!! It’s hard to be a nice person & go out of your way to help & there are those people who think they just deserve it…… Don’t even think about it, you know she’s not, & it will only upset you! We love ya & here’s a BIG HUG!!!!

    Oh, Lorrie, I’m so sorry your SIL let you down when you needed her help. I understand totally what you mean — you are such a giving person and when you give your word, you follow through. You assume that others will be that way, too, and when they’re not, it’s hard to understand. Sadly, I’ve been there myself. I wish we lived closer, because I’d have been there in a heartbeat to help you out, my sweet Bubbly Chick!

    If it helps at all — your pick is beautiful! ;)

    It is difficult to understand how a person can say they will help you then bail out of it especially after you provided care and help when she needed it. I agree with Funny Chick…some people think they deserve what ever they want regardless of the inconvenience to others. I’m agree with Lynn and if I lived close enough I’d be glad to help. I’m afraid if I had been doing a pick after this kind of situation mine would be in shades of RED! But I do love your blues.

    I can understand you Lorrie, it is not nice when someone bails on you and you must surely hate the fact of needing to depend on someone when you are not well. Hugs to you, hope you feel better soon!

    Oh, Lorrie, I am so sorry your SIL flaked out on you. Sounds like she’s still wrapped up in her own life and doesn’t see the big picture yet.
    I hope all went well at the show without her. I know how exhausting it can be.
    And you have created a stunning blue pick!

    Hi Lorrie. This is a beautiful pick. I love blue. I’m sorry that your sil bailed too! I would’ve helped you out if I lived close to you. I too, unfortunately, know what you mean. But, if you are like me, the next time she needs help, you will be there for her. Just remember, what comes around, goes around. Love ya! Hugs to you too!
