At home now...

I arrived back home this evening around 6. The dogs were very happy to see me and I was very happy to be home. I have lots of pictures and lots of projects that are further along. I got so much accomplished this weekend and met a ton of new friends! The ladies that were in our room were so much fun and we all laughed a lot and got to know each other. It was neat to see what everyone else was working on and so exciting when someone got something done and showed it off. Since I got so much done, I can also say that it was great when everyone cheered for my finishes!

There are so many great ladies that I met this weekend and I can't wait to continue interacting with them at future Guild meetings and events and new small group meetings. Considering how large our Guild is, I am always so amazed when I meet new-to-me members and they are so nice and friendly! Experiences like this weekend just reinforce the idea - 'quilters are good people.' And they also help to dispel the very few number of negative encounters with a few off-putting quilters that I have had the misfortune of meeting over the last year or so.

After a weekend of many laughs, lots of chocolate and fudge, jell-o and sewing, I am ready for some sleep. And my dogs want to see all that I got done. They have to doggie test it all, you know!

Tomorrow, I start posting about the retreat. I'm sure that you can't wait!

Isn't it funny how a few bad apples still don't manage to spoil a group of quilters?

I still don't get why people just feel that they are entitled to act any way they want.

I also don't understand people who get their undies in a bunch just because someone has different religious beliefs than they do. That'd be like picking your friends based on what political party they were affiliated with.

I still read your blog just as you are reading mine.

Hope you never have to put your family member on a ventilator to keep them alive while they fight kidney failure, sepsis, pneumonia and infection. You haven't even started to live your life and all you can do is put other people down. I feel so sorry for you.

I don't wonder any more why you never received an invitation to your nephew's birthday party. They don't want to have anything to do with you and neither do I.

Oooook, talk about insanity. I still don't get why she's targeting you specifically when you haven't posted anything about her or even talked about her in months.

Jill,
You are loved. Narcissists are incapable of seeing how their own behavior impacts their lives. The very nature of their borderline personality disorder means it is impossible for them to take accountability for their own actions. It's much easier for them to target someone else as the source of their unhappiness. In this individual's case, unfortunately, that target is you. Don't respond...it just feeds a narcissist's demented ego. You're better than that.
