I have the blahs......

Posted by JorgensenStudio

It has been raining here for what seems like weeks thanks to all the passing hurricanes. It feels like winter up north. The doldrums. Is that how you spell doldrums? Do people still use that word?

So I have been lazy. I spend more time on the computer and less time at the bench. I keep blaming my head cold and I guess the weather is just another excuse. I definitely have a case of the blahs. Everything seems to be on auto-pilot. Neat and tidy and on schedule, but that routine is not conducive to creativeness.

I had to run into "town" to get some quick supplies yesterday. I wandered around aimlessly in the store. Tried to go clothes shopping and hated everything I put on. Although, that really isn't out of the ordinary. But here's the thing, It seems to be spreading. It might be because the state is in such economically bad times, and everyone is just trying to muddle through until we see some light at the end of the tunnel. But everyone seems to be sleepwalking, just going day to day in their routine.

I was watching the television with my darling husband and a commercial came on about a kid dragging his dad through the supermarket because "Wednesday is meatloaf". I know it seems like a benign commercial, even cute when dad says we can't have meatloaf because mom's gone out of town and the nice butcher saves the day by showing dad how. But I hate that commercial. I told my husband, if we ever get to the point where Wednesday is meatloaf, just put me out of my misery. One, because I deplore meatloaf, meat should never come in loaf form, ever, and two because I don't ever want to be that stagnant.

So what's the answer? I dunno. But today I am making kielbasa and cabbage stew. I never had it before, I don't know if I'll like it, and even less if the kids will dare to eat it, but it's something new. Maybe it smell so bad I will have to go out to the bench.....

Your blog is beautiful. I adore your bling rings!

It's funny...I was drawn into your store because you have the same last name as my fiance(and soon me)...Jorgensen.

Best wishes,
Jenn
