postponing reveal by one week

As I sit in the hospital waiting for more tests, I have to admit thorough disgust and disappointment in having to postpone reveal date by one week, to Saturday, May 10th.  I have tried with herculean effort to fight through some things that I am quite sure you're tired of hearing about but I swear there is nothing I can do other than postpone a week and beg understanding.

If you told me you were unable to make the original date but now can, let me know.  If you are going to be out of town, I hope you will be able to schedule your blog to auto post (there are directions further in this blog, or post on WWW.beadsoupcafe.com for help.

Once I'm done here at the hospital I'll send a mass email, too.

Trust me, you couldn't be more disgusted with me than I already am.

    Take care of yourself Lori and don't sweat the small stuff - and it's all small stuff. We'll all still be here on the 10th. Looking forward to the big reveal.

  5. Please -- no disgust!!!! Just take care and sending good vibs for positive test results!! (((hugs)))

  6. Oh there is NO reason to be disgusted with you! As someone who suffers from (essentially on paper) the same thing, I know better than anyone some of what you're going through so there is NO feelings except concern, love, and lots of positive vibes for you dear friend <3

    This actually works out for me in the long run because I've been down and out myself for the past two weeks!

    Everything happens for a reason.

    You just take care of yourself and your loyal friends, followers, and fans will follow YOUR lead. All the others that have an issue can take it up with ALL your supporters!!

  7. "Disgusted" is probably the last word I would use to describe how I feel about you Lori! I would go more for "courageous, amazing, tenacious, talented, unbelievable . . . " you get the idea. Please, just take care of yourself and know that you have a network of artists that support you every step of the way. Much love, many hugs and constant prayers for you my friend.

  8. Lori, I know it's not possible for you to just "forget" about the BSBP, but please PLEASE try and funnel your amazing positive energy to your health right now. Sending plenty of hugs and extra energy (this event has been marvelous experience for me and I have some extra Energizer Bunny juice LOL... so it's YOURS!) xoxo

  9. The most important thing is that you get better and do not torture yourself with deadline issues, because, I am sure, we'd rather you get better than keep the reveal date :)

  10. Sweetie, we just want you well. Hang in there, with warm hugs from all of us. Postponement is no biggie.

    ReplyDelete
  11. We can wait. No problem. Banish the worry and regret.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lori, the main thing is that you are okay, days are just days. Your health is the most important thing. Healing energy to you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hope you are well soon. I will be out of town on the tenth, so need a link on how to set up my reveal in advance. Thanks.

  14. Look at the bright side..it will give the procrastinators more time! I am ready but you are our leader. Just get well!

  15. Lori - I have had week of computer grief, so this actually suits me. I'd been worried that I mightn't be able to post on sunday. But never mind my trifling problems! You just get through the urgent and important stuff and, most importantly, look after yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Please. There is no need to be disgusted with yourself. Your health is priority # 1.
    So it gets postponed with a week? So what? Not the end of the world. Again, your health is far more important!!
    So please take it easy, no worries about it.
    In fact, for me it is much better. I'm swamped with work and was going to have problems making Saturday.
    Lori, I so hope and pray you will feel better very soon

  17. Don't feel bad, Lori. it's ok. Just take care of your health. We all love YOU and now, there's more time for beads that may still be calling us :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Get better right quick, Miss Lori! I haven't even started, although I did get my beads a long time ago and even opened the package to look at them. So one more week is a welcome respite for me! Enjoy the day. Erin

    3. I'm in the same boat with you guys! I couldn't be more pleased to have another week. (Though not for the reason that caused it.) I have two pieces made, not yet photographed, and I'm not thrilled with either of them. Only just got an idea for a third last night. Now I'll have time to make it work!!
      You work so hard and have persevered through so much, there is no way I could be disgusted with you for postponing. Life is life, take care of yourself first!

    4. I'm in the same boat with with you guys. I am actually quite pleased to have an extra week. I didn't like my first two pieces and I have yet to photograph them. Just got a new idea for a third piece last night. Now I'll have time to make it work.
      No way could I be disgusted with you for having to postpone, Lori.You have a lot going on and it's amazing you were even up for doing this this year. Take care of yourself first, and the rest of us will just happily fall into place. Anyone who is bothered by it can just suck it!

    5. Be kind to yourself! Take your time getting well. I'm ready whenever it happens!

  19. All is well. Don't worry. Be happy. Cliche - I know. But it's true. Take care of you please!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awwww Lori! Disgust is sooo not the right word....empathy and sympathy for you. Please do not be so hard on yourself about this. Its just a reveal, your health should be your main focus. If people here cant get that, then poo on them. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  21. *hugs* Don't be so harsh on yourself, Lori, and don't beat yourself up about delaying the reveal. We can wait, the beads can wait. What is important, is YOU and your health. You are an incredibly strong woman, soldiering through all this, don't let anyone guilt-trip you. Get well soon! <3

  26. There is no one that should be disgusted with you for what you go through to have this hop every year. Take care of yourself first. I hope you will feel much better soon.

  31. Lori, I am so upset to read that you are 'disgusted' with yourself. Really and truly - please, sweet lady, I can understand that you feel disappointed, but you have so, so so much on your plate. Go easy on yourself. Be kind to Zack's mum. You have a big - huuuuge, in fact - heart, and are super critical of yourself. But sometimes things happen in life, and you need to prioritise - and THIS IS OK. This is a blog hop. A bead swap. It's wonderful and a beautiful thing that you share with us, but it's no big deal for us to do it all a week later. Really. NO BIG DEAL. And you send anyone who thinks it is over to me. You've done the right thing for you, and therefore the right thing for the BSBP. Huge hugs and get well soon to you dear heart.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please relax! I hope you get better soon! Life happens and even if it would have been a better reason because you won a great holiday trip instead of being forced to be in the hospital... these are things we can't change and if you stress yourself about this, it also won't do you any good! Take care, try to relax and also take your time (or rather give yourself the time). :)

  40. Lori,
    You are fighting a battle that every one in the world should pray they never have to fight. You are beating one of the hardest things in the world to beat and doing a darn good job of it. Do not feel disgusted feel proud that you are winning this battle. Damn girl you are the strongest person I know right now. Your life is much more important than this bead soup and if anyone here does not agree with me then I feel very sorry for them. Hugs and Love to you and yours. Take care of yourself first and foremost.
    Big hugs,

  41. Lori please it's not a big deal, if we are ready for the original date we'll be ready for the postponed date. We all want you to get better. Big hugs!! Please ask if you need help.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is so understandable and I wish you would not be so hard on yourself. The priority is your health first and thinking bad things about yourself isn't going to help...so please think of healing thoughts and be kind to yourself! I for one welcome this delay. We'll be ready whenever you are, Lori! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Certainly not disgusted with you Lori, and you shouldn't feel that way either! Sending much love your way, and hope you get home soon.

    ReplyDelete
  46. No problem Lori, your health is the most important thing, don't be sad or disgusted...things happen. On a purely selfish note it works well for me as I have another reveal this weekend and I didn't want anything to interfere with BSBP. Hugs, sending good wishes your way.

    ReplyDelete
  47. No problem! Your health is first priority here. I'm one of those afore mentioned procrastinators and don't mind having an extra week, anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. This brought tears to my eyes. There is nothing to be disgusted about. I understand your disappointment, but life happens. There are things that are out of your control. All I want to hear is you're working on getting better. Be well Lori. Happy to wait.

    ReplyDelete
  49. PLEASE Lori! Please, please, please remove that word from your mind!!!! You are a wonderful woman, this couldn't be helped, we all understand and would hope for the same understanding if we were going through such an ordeal.
    Only positive, healing, uplifting thoughts from now on, (I know that's hard, but please try, I love you.) as that is what we are all sending you.

As all the previous sweet and KIND people here have posted, we all love you, want the best for you, appreciate you and all the Bead Soup Blog Party has brought to the Beading/Jewelry Art community! As a group, were all cheering for you, hoping and praying that you feel some relief, get answers and feel our hopes and prayers for you.
    Do whatever you need to do, knowing we all understand, take the burden off your shoulders. XOXO Laura

  57. I don't know you Lori except from my participation in this year's hop, but I cannot imagine that anyone could think those things about you. It would be far truer to say that you should feel proud of this thing you do, in spite of all the horrible things you are going through. You strike me as being a very strong and determined person. Please don't be hard on yourself, be kind.

    ReplyDelete
  58. No worries, Lori. We all make like a bead and roll with it. xx

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yay, more time to finish one more piece. Sorry it's because you are unwell Lori, but no harm, no foul, and it helps procrastinators like me. No excuses left. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Its not a problem at all Lori. I am so sorry you are not feeling too great today and hope all goes well at the hospital.
    Please don't be disgusted, be proud of yourself that despite everything you are going through your first thought is for all of us. That's why we all hold you in such high esteem. Just look after yourself!
    Personally for me the postponement is a welcome delay as it gives me more time to do full justice to my soup which I only started working on last Sunday after months of blurred vision.
    Take Care Lori xx

  64. I'm so sorry to hear you are still not feeling well Lori :( Get rest and take care of yourself! Waiting is NO big deal really. I am honestly RELIEVED! We have had our share of all kinds of crazy things happen over our move. Feel better! xoxo Genea

    ReplyDelete
  65. Lori, We all knew that you were having health issues when we signed up. Please be kinder to yourself. We know how hard you work to make this happen and a delay is not a big deal. It just gives the procrastinators more time. Your health is SO much more important than this hop happening on the specified date. Please take the time you need to get well. The hop will be fine whenever it happens. Hugs and pie to you.

  72. Lori, my dear. Were you disgusted by anyone who told you couldn't make the reveal ? No ? Then please... PLEASE, honey... Don't use that word about yourself. You deserve so much better than all this, I know, and I wish I could wave my magic wand and make it all go away.

    This just means we get one more week to make more pieces. That's all. <3

    ReplyDelete
  73. Its all good.. It is more important for you to be in good health. You have the best intentions and its all appreciated. Take care and I hope you feel better soon. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  74. That's the last thing you need to be fretting about, Lori. Be assured that your health is much more important than rescheduling the reveal date. We certainly aren't disgusted. Concerned, yes. Disgusted, absolutely not! Please take good care of yourself and try not to worry. It's just a week. Hoping you feel much better very soon.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Lori!! what??! making us wait a whole week? Just kidding!!...don't worry so much, it's not good for you!!! no big explanation necessary, we understand! (((HUGS))) Praying you'll feel better asap.

  78. Would you please ease up on yourself? I swear you'd feel better if you could/did! Nobody cares if the reveal is move a day or a week or a year. They care about you getting well. Period. End of rant. Sending love.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Do not beat yourself up. No one is disgusted with you. When one is fighting a battle, one must expect sudden setbacks or surprise attacks. And you are fighting a great battle. Rest, take care of YOU. That is your big priority. Do what you need to do.

  83. Hey Lady! Don't apologize. Your health is several orders of magnitude more important than the blog hop. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. We will survive. Get some rest and take care of yourself.

  84. Lori-Take care of yourself and your family! We can all wait for the blog hop at a later time when you can enjoy and take part in it. You are after all the reason we are able to even have it. You give your time and energy to make it happen. Get well!

  91. Get well soon. I am actually relieved for the postponement as I too, have had a health issue lately to deal with and I am teaching 2 classes at Bead Blast 2014 in Kansas City this weekend. Still have a bit to do to get ready for that. Prayers for your quick recovery.

  92. I am another who will not be completing anything I had a four-level spinal surgery in early December and is more than impessed with the BSHP ! Beautiful things. I had an extremely compassionate from Lori and my partner. I am so grateful for their remarkable support. Thank you so much.

  93. I'm sorry because I know you must be totally stressed to do this but since I had just decided (after getting home from work at 8:30) that there was no way I was going to be able to make it, I'm certainly glad that I have another chance. And that I can enjoy the derby without feeling guilty about not hopping. I wish you better days ahead.

  94. Stop worrying about us and take care of you! Feel better!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. There is absolutely NO reason to be disgusted with yourself. We all have things to deal with and you seem to have more than enough for yourself and others. Please don't worry about this. It actually works out better for me as I've been fighting a problem with one of hands and joints and it's been difficult to get my piece the way I want. But please don't worry about it. It will happen and we're all just happy to be able to play. Hoping you get to feeling better soon.

  99. Even though I am so happy for the extra time, I am sorry you are feeling under the weather again! I am just so thankful to be invited to join a group with such wonderfully creative artists, I could never be upset with you. I don't know how you could handle this healthy, it is truly amazing what you have accomplished with your health issues! Hugs and get well soon!!!

  100. I am all kinds of things, but disgusted surely is not one of them, more like worried about you! Taking care of your health is much much more important than a reveal date! Sending you an overload of healing thoughts, love and light!
