The Slump

I haven't been blogging lately. I think I'm in a slump. I'm not too interested in continuing my life story in the Silver Valley for now. Don't have much going on right now except for work. Can't talk about the projects I'm working on (mostly Christmas presents).

The rest of my time I have been playing bubble shooter and watching the first 3 seasons of The Office in random order. (Can't seem to find all of any one season at the rental place at any one time.)

I am wondering if I am getting depressed again. Obsessive game playing on the computer - very little desire to call friends (could be that I am saving my minutes now that the home phone is kaput) - shorter days that bring feelings of melancholy - no desire to write on the book I started last October - don't want to get dressed on my days off -

The most exciting thing that has happened lately is that I bought a couple of new pillows for the Hunk and I to sleep on. They are really nice and comfortable. At the same store, the Hunk bought me 4 (FOUR!) cute hooks for my soon to be craft room downstairs. They look like dress forms with various corsets on them done in cream and black with a bit of a distressed look. They were $10 each - so I was surprised when he bought me all four of them! (Now I just have to wait for V to paint over the lime and orange paint in her former room, so I have crisp clean ultra-white walls on which to display my hooks!) I like the ultra-white walls for my Mary Kay room (natural light for matching foundations) and I want it in my craft/sewing room for matching colors.

Maybe I'm not depressed - just in a holding pattern. . .a bit overwhelmed by some of the changes that have been taking place lately. Additional work hours and responsibilities, losing the cat, losing the house phone, adjusting to cooler weather. . .waiting for Christmas, waiting for my youngest to come home from school, waiting for my new craft room, waiting for some new inspiration. . .

Greetings friend: It is nice to read your post again. I think we all go through the seasonal shift and always have to regroup a little. You have certainly experiences lots of changes lately. I am excited to hear more about your new room. The Hunk is a sweetheart!

Thanks for your encouragement. It really means a lot!

Yes, the Hunk is a sweetheart, and really surprised me with such a purchase.

My room is still filled with V's things. She began moving into her new room (aka - the former storage room) and is enjoying the spaciousness of no clutter. (She has, however, lived in clutter for several years and took over the entire basement when her younger sister went off to school.) I can't describe what that looks like here, but suffice it to say - I can't wait to see all her "stuff" put away.

I'll keep you posted on the transformation!

I know what you need but you won't listen to me.

You are relentless. . .Who says I'm not listening?

You aren't listening to me. Not yet! I will buy the Vemma when I am ready. . .It is good stuff. Just don't want to start something I can't finish. . .

Your post sounds a bit like the one I just wrote. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, needing some focus. Lots of changes in our life as well, which could be contributing to my feelings as well. It is always interesting how we respond to change. I miss your writings, and hope to hear more soon.
