Some Days are Just Bad............

Have been absent for a while because of a huge cloud that has settled over our home. Times are very difficult at the moment and I am finding it very hard to deal with normal fun things like blogging.
It is so painful when someone you love and care for get themselves involved in a situation that you know can cause them nothing but heart ache.
I am powerless to change anything or make any of the problems go away and for a control freak like me it's unbearable.
They say what can't be be cured must be endured but it is so hard when you can see nothing but pain and distress for the weeks and months to come.
So I am doing what I do best, keeping a steadying hand, preparing for the worst and so, so hoping for the best.
I have been keeping up with everyone's blogs in the wee, small hours even if I am too weary to leave comments. Lots of Christmas preparations going on in Miniature Blogland I have seen.
To cheer me up and keep my mind of the real world I am planning a 200 follower giveaway.
Wow 200! Thank you to everyone who pops in. I am hoping to post more details tomorrow everything being equal.


  1. Janice, I hope that huge cloud blows away very quickly, and the Sun shines on your Home again. We are all here if you need us.. Sending you a big hug..xxxx

  2. Sending lots of hugs your way ((((Janice)))).

    I too have been away from blogland...but that's just because I've needed a rest and have been busy.

    Do take care of all. :o)))

  3. Oh Janice I am so sorry that things are troubling at home.

    Sometimes all we can do is sit back and let people make their own mistakes...not at all easy though xxxxx

  4. Janice, this post could've been me for a few years...when a member of my family seemed set on destroying themselves. I just wanted to voice my support to you - while knowing what small comfort it may be to tell you that in my case - the weathered storm did pass to something much, much better. In the meantime one of the things I employed to keep myself sane was healthy doses of escapism; just to quiet my poor aching mind. If you can escape to whatever gives you ease even for a few moments it can really help. Wishing you the best in this troubled time,

  5. So sorry to read that things aren't so good for you in your neck of the world at the moment. It's probably made worse by the time of year too! Try and put some time aside to escape into your minis and at least put other stuff to the back of your mind for a little while.

    Congratulations on your 200 followers. That's a thing to be proud of!

    I hope you feel a bit better soon.

  6. So sorry to hear of your troubles. Sometimes all we can do is accept what is and pray. I will be praying for you and your family too.
    Congratulations on 198 followers! You have a great blog! I'm sure there will 200 before you blink an eye!
    Blessings, Kathi

  7. Oh Janice. If there is anything I can do please let me know, even if it's just to be a listening ear for you rant to. I so hope all works out well for you and yours. Sending you a huge hug, Julia xxxxx

  8. I am so sorry to read this. I am sorry that you feel sad and with troubles. Miniatures is a good way to escape and blogging is good for relaxing too.
    Hope everything will be solved soon and hopefully well.
    A huge hug Janice, with my love

  9. I'll be thinking of you and sending my best wishes for this difficult time. I hope it will end soon and be better than what you fear.
    Your blog is wonderful and inspirational and I'm sure you'll be celebrating more followers soon!

  10. Please take care of yourself. I'll be thinking of you.

  11. As much as we would like to shake some people and tell them to wake up. They might not get the clue. I wish you all the strength for what is yet to come and may you still enjoy your holidays.

  12. not sure what is wrong but you sound very upset and thats not a good thing whatever. I hope whatever is causeing you pain and upset can be sorted very quickly and with a happy out come.
    Take care


  14. The next time people snigger when I mention Blogland and the time I spend 'talking' to people I have never met I intend to email them this post.

    I cannot tell you how much better I feel tonight from just simply reading all these wonderful comments. Please be assured that this is not a life threatening situation just damn awful for everyone involved, and totally needless.

    Thank you so much all of you, it has made me feel better just airing how I am feeling as I can't discuss it with anyone in the real world at the moment.

    It is really warming to know that so many warm vibes are being sent my way.

  15. Some times life just doesn't work out for you. I myself have a familymember where things sometimes are good, sometimes are bad. It drains all my energy and I can only sit and wait for what to come.
    I hope that things soon will get better.
    Take care of yourself.

  16. I hope whatever it is, is resolved quickly and without any lasting negative effect on you or your loved ones. ((((hugs)))) x

  17. Warm hugs going your way Janice. We've no doubt all been in situations where we can see the harm a loved one is doing to themselves but are powerless to prevent so you are not alone in your hour of hurt, many are thinking of you. Take time out and salve your spirit as best you can, we'll all still be around somewhere.

    I recently had to sit back and take stock with real life being unco-operative. Time is the great healer.

  18. Dear Janice, Im late as always but always here for you! Strange, as I have been going through bad family drama this end too and finding no time to do what i love with my mini making! No enthusiasm, no time and I can understand your pain so please know Im hear to lend an ear if you need me! Hate to hear you sad, sending positive vibes you way especially so near Christmas! Love and Hugs Kate xxx

  19. ((( HUGS ))) Janice. You have a lot of caring friends here in blogland. We are real people with real lives. I have heard the snicker too from friends who have meaningless lives. I hope the problem is resolved quickly and you are able to enjoy the holidays in peace. My thoughts are with you.

  20. Janice - I'm so sorry to hear that you are troubled. Please try to be kind to yourself, and ride out any storms, knowing that nothing bad lasts forever, even though it seems that way when you're in there.
    love from Glenda

  21. So sorry to read your bad news. May be your minis could help you to cope with the situation. I know they helped me a lot when my father died. Bon courage!

  22. I hope things improve for you soon Janice, meanwhile, I agree with Genevieve, mini making is a great escape.

  23. Oh Janice :( I hope everything sorts it's self out soon & you can return to a happy state of mind once more xxxxxxx

  24. Janice, i totally missed this post and here very late.
    Sorry to hear you have trouble and sending wishes to you that all is better soon.
    I dont know what it is and can not give advice other than to say, see each day through, be all you can each day, ask for support if needed, talk to whoever you can and wait for time to heal. Time always heals, it may leave it scars but in time all improves. Im a great believer in this.
    Much love, Nikki xxx
