I've been down so long, it looks like up to me

Well, I've kinda got the steadily depressin', low down mind messin', digital scrapping blues.

That's right, even though I have my kit in the store at (see left) I feel as if I'm spent and my MOJO is gone, baby.

Maybe I should find a quieter hobby, like knitting.

Maybe I should chuck this blog. I just got the Blogger Beta and I'm sorry, what's so much beta about it? So far it's been a large pain in my ---.
Speaking of blogs, do you like my new header that I cannot center for the life of me? Yes, it's a pre-made header by Shabby Princess. I will probably make another soon, but I've been too lazy lately.
Hey don't mind me, I'm a bit grumpy tonight.

I think I'm sleep deprived, yet I continue to stay up way past my bedtime.

The boys have to end up making their own breakfast in the morning, which is very scary. Thank goodness for uniforms otherwise who knows how they would dress themselves, because their zombie mom sure can't dress anything at that hour.

We were all late the other day. I slept in until 7:45 a.m. The boys have to be at school at 8:15. We didn't make it to school until about 8:30 a.m. I got to work at 10 a.m.

I felt I was behind all day. I just couldn't catch up to save my life. Then I came home, made dinner as if on auto pilot, gave the kids the a bath and got back on the computer to stay up until at least 1 a.m.

I'm just insane.

When will I learn?

Maybe I like looking old?

Maybe I like sleepwalking through life and ignoring laundry? Well, yeah that is true.

So, I guess something good that I can report is that I feel as though I have lost weight. So running yourself ragged does have its benefits.

Whoo hoo size 10!

If I keep this up, I may just waste away into a size 9 and a half.

Anyway, I do have a freebie for you and I had big fun making it, the doodles are hand-drawn and scanned, so if they look like crap, that's why. Anyway, it's called "Into the Mystic" based on one of my fave songs by Van Morrison.


By the way I'm still looking forward to the outcome of the Scrapartist contest Round 2, I think there are some that are pretty sure they are going on to the next round. Not me. I can't believe I made it as far as I did.

Anyway, enough of that, be sure to check out (man that's a long title) and check out all of the lovely ladies there. They would love to have you as part of the community.

I can tell I've been on Hello too long because when I type the word "love" I expect a heart to fall across the screeen. Sheesh. I'm off to bed now. Really.

Stop going to bed! there's so many things to do in life, others than ironing and laundry... Take a little time just for you, you know, when someone takes care of you alone: maybe hairdresser or beautician! Hope you feel better.
And I still love the wonderful freebies you're offering. You didn't lost your creativity! Good!

send you love and sleep, to sleep changes everything.
Like your freebie, it reminds me on afrika, but more important than freebies is your time for you, we will still be here, after you slept

Heather said...

You even sound tired. Take a nap on Saturday! It might catch you up. Take a day off of the computer (easier said then done). Its 5am and I am just getting up for work. But had to check my blogs!

Whatever you do, have a good day today! Oh, and thank you.

Love Van Morrison, and i really like the texture on this paper. Don't give up so easy. You are very talended. Thanks for the freebie.

Jean said...

It's amazing what just *one* good night's sleep can do for your mood. You need to force yourself to get one :)
Hang in there, you're too talented to give this all up. Thanks for all you do :)

Like cars...I think a lot of the time we get overkill and need to switch gears, girl. Plus it is the change of seasons here, I don't know if it is there. I don't much like the change from summer to fall, it always is ho hum to me. Maybe that is what ails you?

You do beautiful work. You are really an artist. Good luck getting your mojo back. When I lose my mojo, I don't go looking for it. I am stubborn. I make it come to me. Eventually it comes back every time :)

Thanks for the really neat papers!
When we love something I know it is hard to limit our time spent but don't ruin your health over scrapbooking!!!! cg

I love your new kit - that little red dress is a brilliant idea. Haven't heard back on round 2...hope we're both on 'the list' but it's hard to tell since Scrapartist is down. Sleep deprivation is my biggest vice - sure puts you in a bad mood.

This is absolutely gorgeous! Just hang in there. Your work is fabulous.
