Warning - I get personal here.
I'm one of those blog readers that rolls their eyes when someone blogs that they are taking an internet break. How on earth could updating a blog be so taxing?
Well, sometimes it is and go ahead, roll your eyes at me because I would.
For lots of reasons, most of them to do with the brain cancer that my mom is having to put up with, I'm tired. I have lots of projects I love to do and want to do on an almost daily basis, but it's been well over a week since I've wanted to do them. I think that is a sign that it's time for a break. I'm requiring myself to finish up some samples for the July Phat Fiber box, but other than that, I'm going to sit on the couch, watch season 6 of the Sopranos (yes, finally) and maybe knit stuff... for me.
I realized that something had to give today when I actually pondered putting my wool stuff away in the basement because I was tired of the mess in my house. Yeah, hold the phone, what was I saying? Before I get to that tragic point, I'm going to see if I just need a vacation from the extra (normally fun) stuff.
Aside from being tired from the time I wake up in the morning, which has been an hour or 2 earlier than usual lately (and waking up at 5:30 just to stare at the window watching it get brighter outside is not as nice as it sounds) until I go to sleep at night, I've also found myself getting really peeved at things that I would normally find enjoyment in. Normally I'd smile at someone going out and having fun - for the past week I've just scowled at them. Normally your jokes would make me laugh or at least smile to be nice - for the past week I've yawned at the humor.
I'm hoping that just chilling out for a while and looking forward to my best friend coming to town next weekend will help me snap out of the funk 'cause I have to tell you, the funk kind of stinks.
Oh, and this weekend is the weekend to blow things up so hopefully I'll find a good buy one get 3 free tent and get lots of fun, bright colored explosives to light up the night sky on Saturday. If that doesn't help me out of my funk - I'm not sure what will.
SO - please don't forget about my blog if I don't post for a while... I'll be back with clever, witty, cooking inspired and crafting inspired things to say soon.
