Not long ago I put up this card table in my office because I was going to start cleaning out files. Instead, the card table has become a dumping ground for mail and things to put away. My desk also has things to file and put away, and on that gold paper is the print out of Judy’s Labor Day weekend quilt challenge…………as if I don’t have enough projects going already.
My laptop computer sits in front of my desktop computer because I was going to switch everything to my laptop and retire the desktop and of course it hasn’t happened yet because that would take a day or two of concentrated effort and I can’t even seem to find the energy to clear off my desk or the card table.
Why do I fall into these slumps? I got up this morning full of energy and did thirty minutes on the treadmill (a miracle for me) and since then I have moped around the house, reading, playing computer games, and just wasting time.
I’m waiting to hear news about my sister. She is being moved today from the hospital to a rehab facility and I’m waiting to hear when and where so that I can go and make sure she is comfortable. She has a husband and a daughter that can do all that, but I like to get involved too because I love her and want her to be happy. So I wait and can’t seem to engage my mind on anything else.
I need to bury myself in a project but I just can’t seem to get started. Anyone out there have any good advice? In the mean time, I think I will go back to my book.
