Lately I've been reading alot of mysteries and most of them have evolved around either quilting or knitting. Debbie Macomber, Clare O'Donahue, Jennifer Chiaverini, and there's another, I can't remember the author. There is a 'club' in all of them that meet once a week and work on projects, talk, eat, fellowship, become friends and help each other thru thick and thin. Would that not be fun!?!? I would love to be a part of something like that. Not sure if it is becuase I'm reaching middle age, empty nest, hor(ror)mones or just general unease and discontent but I seem to be longing to be a part of 'something' lately. It really doesn't have to be knitting or quilting, maybe it could be a group of ladies who come together to work on projects for charity. I don't know.
Seems all I do lately is school work. I'm overwhelmed with it. I know I 'chose' to bring that into my life's madness but I also know that in the end there will be a reward for it. Not sure where it will lead me but I'm excited about it.
Is this what they call 'midlife crisis'?
So. What are any of you in a group like this? Charity? Volunteer?
I need an outlet. I need a 'break'. Any suggestion?
