Funky Cole Medina

Ugh. I am in a funk.

I don't usually complain but this has been going on for close to a month and it's not like me. I usually try to keep myself in some type of a schedule. If I don't have a designated day for things, they seem to pile up on me. I usually clean and do laundry on the weekends and try to cook every night. Seeing as we don't have any kids this is not hard to keep up with. But lately I haven't wanted to do anything. I haven't really cleaned the house in over 3 weeks. My house is not a pig sty, we clean up but I haven't really cleaned. Saturday comes around and the laundry doesn't get done. I end up doing just what we need for Monday. I still have been cooking most nights but it's really hard to think of something to make. And I love to cook. Even my knitting's lagging. I am still knitting but I just don't feel like it as much as I used to. I also dread going to work. Well, it's not that bad, I do love my job. It just seems so hard to get anything done while I'm there. I feel bad that I am there all day and have been pushing things to the side on my desk. All I have been wanting to do is read. I still love to lay in a warm bed all morning and read a good book. But what to read...

Now I am not going to bore you with my complaints any more. I started the Horcrux Sock again. I got the ribbing done and am on the pattern part again.

I don't seem to have any problem buying anything lately though ;-) My newest acquisition would be the Knit Picks Circulars that I got today. I wanted to try them out to see if I like them. I have heard so any good things about them. I can't wait until I can get my hands on a set of Knit Picks Options needles.

Oh, I almost forgot. I think I have an alligator nest in my backyard. We have heard them the last few nights and they are loud. They have a cry that sounds kind of like a squeak but deeper. I am freaking out! We don't live on the water with a dock and all that but we do live on a canal. The canal is at the end of our backyard. I am worried and wonder if I should call animal control. If there are babies there is a mama near by...

Well I hope everyone else is having a better day than me!

I hope you have a better day tomorrow. :) Just hope the alligators decide that a different canal would be better.

I hear you on the funk. I've got school work, work work, knitting, housekeeping, a party in the works, and a kid to raise. Some days I'd like nothing more than to sleep in, watch old reruns on tv and eat popcorn straight from the bag. Having a kid certainly does help in some ways in forcing you to keep at least part of your schedule, but I'm pushing a lot off, too. Maybe it's the summer heat making us so blah. Oh, and on the gators in the backyard... are you sure they're not just frogs? There's a particular frog around here that sounds suspiciously like a gator. We have a canal behind us, too, and for a long time I swore there were gators there. I was afraid to let the dog out! But it ends up, it was just a bunch of noisy frogs. With all the rain we've had lately, they've been noisy again.

Hope you shake the funk soon.

I hope you get your groove back soon. If it helps we all go through times of funk.
