Feeling blah...

I am really sorry that I have not posted recently. I have been feeling really blah lately and haven't done much at all.

I am so sick of the cold spells every couple days. Which means that most of the nice days in between can't be spent outside either unless you want to breath dirt, which is what it is like today. I need fresh air and I need sunshine and blue skies, desperately, yet today is brown skies and tomorrow is calling for gray skies, AND more blowing dust.

I also got a new sewing machine, because I was getting frustrated with my old used one getting stuck every 5 minutes, only to have problem because I absolutely cannot get my stitches right to sew together a piece of cotton and flannel! Is there some magical trick to get it to sew cotton and flannel together? It worked just fine when I did cotton with terry cloth. So I have been down about that, too.

My kitchen is still incomplete.

Bills and ads and receipts have once again taken over my desk.

I have no energy, so have not done much cleaning or cooking or exercising.

I haven't really posted because since I haven't done much, I haven't really had much to post about.

I am finally breaking down and we are going to purchase a new washer and dryer this weekend. I dread spending the money, but we have been searching for a good used pair that fits our needs for a couple weeks with no luck. And I don't want to risk buying used ones only to end up in this same situation 6 months from now.

I have felt terrible because we have been spending lots of money, after I was so sure I was going to start tracking and quit spending so much.

So all in all, the past few weeks have just been...well...blah... I really need something to get me out of this rut, but I don't know what it is. At this point I believe I would be willing to pay to have someone come in and organize and give me a fresh start...


  1. awwww hang in there! Things will get better just stay positive! Im missed reading your posts!

  2. Sounds like a tough time, but you can get through it. Time to get out of your routine and try something new this week! Visit a new park, rearrange some furniture, cook an exotic dinner - just shake things up a bit and see if it helps. Ruts are hard to get out of, but staying in them means you never get to see new scenery.

    (Also, I'd like to comment with my blog address - - but there is no name/URL option. I hope you'll add that! Thanks!)
