I’m back

October 26, 2008

Well, no one reads me. No one knows about me. No one even knows I’ve been “away” for 10 full days! My old PC broke, my Mac was useless, and now I’ve got a new PC. Ah… at last! I really missed writing, but as the time went by, I, again, got used to not writing – which is really bad for my blog.

I’m so bad at letting the world know about me. If I were rich I’d had people doing it for me, but I’m not, so I only have myself to do it. I like writing, but then – how do I get other people to read what I wrote? I guess I’d have to do some work and post my address in every blog I read.

My very little etsy shop also suffered. I have to, have to, have to add some mew items to it.

I really have to say that without a computer, or – without the internet, I felt disconnected from the world, but day after day, I also felt a bit more free. Free from reading e-mails, free from the need to see if I got any new e-mails every hour, free from any net-obligations, which was rather nice. It’s not that I really used my time any better though… (I really felt the urge to put a smily here – but not that yellow thingy, only a typed one – how do I get rid of the drawn smily? (Actually I haven’t learnt how to manage my blog yet so stuff here is still messy. Hope my husband will be to use here).

Ok – I have to publish some pictures, right? otherwise this blog will suffer from bored-nonreaders.

See you!

Goodbye PC hello Mac hello PC

October 16, 2008

My PC breathed its last breath yesterday. May it rest in peace. Thank god I kept my old Mac. I retreived it from the basement and connected all the wires myself – only I disconnected the router so only I had Internet in this house yesterday – unintentionally of course. I’m so bad at these things. My husband noticed he couldn’t have a connection to the net, so of course I had to hear his cynical remarks… He’s know for them 🙂 – part of why I married him (it can get on your nerves sometimes though…). He has a strong dislike to Macs. He is a software engineer and works only with PC’s, so you understand his frustration – he knows almost nothing about the Mac, and I was too lazy to learn more about it than I needed in the days I used it – so it’s a freak in a PC lovers’ house. As soon as Segev saw it back on my desk he went and found me a brand new PC (cheap and good!) – which I will probably have by the weekend. Yeah!! Then I will be able to upload some illustrations of mine to the blog – you will know this side of me as well.

In the meantime I can’t seem to be able to upload pictures from my Mac so you’ll just have to wait.

See you.

A little bit more

October 14, 2008

Hi. 2 posts a day – I must be bored. Actually I’m Just excited.

The 2 pictures here are of what we called “Trocky” – it’s a doll to hang on the door handle to keep it a bit opened when your child goes to sleep. I will soon give the link to our etsy shop – I just have to learn how to do it…

Hello

October 14, 2008

Well, today I really felt the need to write – the concept of typing my thoughts and in a foreign language too is a bit hard, but I feel more comfortable knowing that people outside my country read my blog, as this is a very smal country (Israel) and everyone is about to know everyone here sooner or later…

I feel a bit depressed. No – a lot probably – it’s about our ability to have children. Shira, our only daughter, was a miracle. We had problems and somehow things went so well we did not have to go through an IVF treatment with her. Although I did inject hormones towards a treatment then. Well, now we went through one unsuccessful IVF treatment, and one treatment that was stopped in the middle of it cause my body did not develop any eggs. I feel so OLD and dried up. I became a bit obssessed with this whole thing and I can’t let it out of my mind. Today, Saturday – I really wanted to sleep late, and Segev, my husband was not feeling well. Shira woke up early as usual, and as she is not yet used to playing alone in her room (though there is a slight progress in this field), she woke us up, she was noisy as a 3 year old girl is, and I couldn’t go on sleeping. I started thinking – DO I REALLY WANT ANOTHER CHILD??? 🙂 Well, I have to say that my body just feels a real urge to get pregnant. Maybe someone else will take care of the child after it’s born 🙂

Wow – I really feel so good writing! It’s probably the knowledge that someone reads it and I’m not alone with these crappy thoughts (sorry – I tend to curse) in my OLd mind (35 – will be 36 in the coming November).
Lucky for me I started sewing with a friend of mine. We sell our stuff bit by bit. We call ourselves “InGrid”. It all started as a graphic design studio, but inevitably changed into a crafters’ studio. I think there’s nothing better than feeling the materials you work with.
See some pics. See you.
 
Oh! the pics are of demi-season baby blankets with attached stuffed toys.
