Today, not being able to find the perfect gift, and not getting students names into the newspaper seem like insurmountable problems. The kind of problems I imagine most people take in stride. I take the defeat, stuff it down deep inside then deny it and then eat until I can't remember what was causing me all that trouble. Problem is tomorrow the same dang problems come back and thus the cycle continues. Husband is a different animal. If something bothers him he focuses on nothing else till the thing is dealt with. I believe this is "normal". My question is: can I learn this behaviour? I've certainly had it modeled for me long enough and truth be told it kind of irritates me. I think I'm just jealous.

Good Mood Hunting

Today I am trying to decide what to do about my extreme lack of motivation. Which leads me to the question: Am I blogging to avoid..... what ..... life, housework, eating??

I will decide what to do with this blog sooner or later but for now I will just experiment with what can be done. I would like to get my story out in writing away from certain eyes. Odd thing to say in a blog but, honestly, this is probably the best place to hide out.

For now, I will not worry about the motivation. I will just start. Like the song says, I'll just put one foot in front of the other and eventually something will get done.

Once upon a time......

I was young. When did that change?
