I'm definitely in a pickle and even I cringe to read that in writing.
I have lost any interest in reading. I mean, it's completely gone. Wiped out! I'm killer bored and I look at a book and think, nope.
Who am I?
If I had competing interests going on I could see the problem but I finished all the movies I rented last night, there's nothing on TV that is remotely appealing to me, shopping is blah and I'm in that 'killing time' mode again!
There's this saying that pops up every once in a while on my screen saver. I use Paperquote and everyday you can download a new picture and saying but they have been recycling something fierce lately.
Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Susan Ertz, Anger in the Sky
I used to get mad when I saw that saying thinking she didn't know jack. Well, she's friggin' intimate with jack.
The not so good news, although there is comfort in the knowledge for me at least, is that I'm not the only one sucking on fumes. I've done the rounds tonight and I'm not the only one trying to fight off a slump or even boredom and exhaustion.
That said, my brain acts weird anyways so I know I have one of my best buds coming on Thursday so there is this need to get the house cleaned. Then my birthday is on Saturday so it's family day here and then because we left the whole summer blocked we have to go to our friends for a visit on the Sunday.
I don't do well when our weekends are packed and poor Bob is feeling the brunt of this one. 'Had to do the stupid shed all summer and now we're booking the end of the summer solid!'
Oh yes, Pleasant Cindy was out earlier tonight.
You know how I know when I'm in a real honest to goodness slump?
When I buy a bunch of books online (like I did last night) and then look at the list the next day and think 'meh'.
I'll share what I bought next post and maybe I'll be able to scratch up some enthusiasm.
Wonder if I can buy that online?
