Taj Update

This is today's update of my Taj Mahal. If you look really close at the bottom left corner, you'll notice the first 10 or so beads. I just couldn't resist starting the beading!

I'm going through a 'funk' right now. You ever have those days or weeks when everything is okay but your just anxious and unfocused? I pick up a book (a good one too) and I start reading and find myself reading 2 or 3 pages and not digesting what I'm reading - or I want to stitch and find myself staring at the bags of projects and can't decide which one to work on. I've always multi-tasked well and I'm really bothered by this. I have a ton of stuff I would like to do; new projects to start, redesign this blog site, upload all my finishes to the new finishing blog Fantastic Finishes ; and alot of spring projects around the house (fun ones too) but I just don't want to start any of these. I told my husband maybe I'm a little depressed and just don't know it? Maybe I need to find a part-time job, just anything that gets me out of the house for a few days a week; nicely dressed with makeup, etc. Something to do that is concrete then maybe I'll use my 'free' time better. Right now it's like - it's all free time so I can do anything at any time I want; so I find myself sitting there and not doing any of it. Am I making any sense at all?

I will update my links as well. I LOVE this design.

I am in the "funk" mood, but trying to push myself to finish up the MIL's gift. I am soooooo sick of it. *LOL*

Wanda, I totally understand the "funk" feelings. People who have worked in fast-pased jobs where you had to be very organized, etc. probably don't know how to "relax." Maybe you could write a self-help book about how to handle this -- I'm going to need help in a few years. (Well, I need help now, but you know what I mean). I hope it gets better.

You are making wonderful progress on Taj! It's so pretty! It really makes me want to start my EG.

Your funk will go away soon enough. Just hang in there...and maybe Lin will hire you at the shop. *wink**wink*
