Wednesday Weigh-In


No change in my weight. I can live with that. I actually haven't tried very hard this week.

Ever get one of those phases when you are not inspired nor motivated? A slump, dry spell, bad period, blight, funk, dip, downswing, downtrend, downturn, drop, dumps, low, rut, sag, stagnation. (I love my thesaurus! It's literally falling apart!) Not quite a depression. Not a hormonal thing either. Just blah.

That's me this week. It may be the heat. It may be worrying about Kat finding a job.

I just haven't the umph to do much creating nor house work (not that I ever really want to do that!) I have managed to get the laundry done. Am gonna iron shirts in a few minutes. Made a killer meatloaf - in 6 small loaves - last night. YUM!!

I have done some embroidery. Just a wee bit. I'll post pics tomorrow for Vintage Thing Thursdays since the patterns were my Aunt Pearl's and from the 40's!

But that's not getting the bridesmaid dress altered for that nice young lady. Nor is it getting the curtains sewn for the nice lady over near the golf course. Our windows are still sorta nekkid and I've had fabric to make BillHubby some shirts for almost 5 years now.

Okay - gonna get off my hiney and iron those shirts before they multiply!

What do you do to get over a slump?


  1. I check out A Holy Experience and that, usually, always works!

  2. The right music sometimes does it for me.

    Sometimes a walk on a really nice day perks me up, but I have to be motivated to walk so that's a catch twenty-two.

    I know this might sound weird, but sometimes doing a crazy random act of kindness changes my state of mind enough to motivate me.

    Then there is always chocolate, but that just usually stirs me to more chocolate so I don't guess that really counts.


Do tell! Whatcha thinkin?
