I'm Blah

I feel obligated to let you know that I'm writing from a place of blah today. Do you know blah? Can't quite put your finger on it....but it just doesn't feel like YOU feeling? I suspect it comes from this cold I've been nursing for the past week and a half. Why do I feel guilty when I get sick? I feel like I should have this 'stay healthy' thing figured out by now, but I don't. In addition to the cold, I feel like the past few weeks have gone at warp speed. I hate the feeling that life is whizzing by and I'm just along for the ride. I also suspect that my happy mood might be lost on the roof...since I'm paying for the new roof I had to get just a month before Christmas. And the kids are with their dad this weekend. Blah.

It's been a pull the covers up over my head day. I didn't leave the house at all yesterday and choose instead to work on my December Daily book. As I was assembling the pages, I couldn't escape the feeling that I have no idea how I'm going to fill it this year. I'm also working on a Christmas art journal this year. Two projects? I thought my word this year was FOCUS....apparently not.

I did manage to find a few spots of pleasure over the last couple days...and I do have things to look forward to.
1. I discovered (with the help of my mom) Advil Allergy & Sinus works better than anything I've taken. It's nice to be able to breathe again...thanks mom.
2. I took myself to the movies to see Burlesque. I knew my boyfriend wouldn't go near a that movie, so I happily took myself. I have no problem seeing movies alone...I don't have to feel bad picking a clunker that way. This was just plain fun, though. Christina Aguilera....she was amazing......I may have a crush on her. The music was amazing. The dancing was amazing. Cam Gigandet...amazing to look at.
3. In just a week, I get to hang out with my Scrap Cellar friends. Looking forward to that. Hopefully, I'll be back to myself by then.

That's all for now. Hopefully tomorrow will be brighter. The kids and I will pull out our Christmas decorations...I need a little Christmas now....


  1. Sorry you're feeling blah, but I'm looking forward to our Saturday in the Cellar. Didn't get the outside decorations as I had hoped. And I think tomorrow I'll try to get some of the inside decorated. Feel better fast!!

  2. Oh, dear . . . I know how you are feeling, and have tried to get myself out of blah moods myself recently. I'm sorry they have found their way to you, Doris. Please know that I am thinking of you, and trying my best to send positive energy your way. I do have faith that when that cold bug decided to leave you, things will look much brighter. Until then, keep the faith ... and Saturday we will figure it all out. I believe that. Drs. PK and LT are real good at that! ;) Love you!

  3. CE - Oh nooooo!!! The blahs are not good, especially this time of the year. I hope you are feeling better today (because we have our gathering in five days!!!). If you are still sick, then you probably need antibiotics, so a trip to the doc may be in order. Hope the week goes by fast and hang in there! Saturday will be here before you know it. "Dark Cindi" is allowed, but the blahs are not!
