Friday, November 9th, 2007 • No Comments on Snap Out Of It!
For some reason, I always think of Cher in Moonstruck when I hear that phrase and not Mary Engelbreit. Maybe that’s because I think Cher could kick my ass, while Mary Engelbreit would only dress me in bright, busy, mismatched clothing. I need ass-kicking, not a polka-dot and plaid makeover.
I’m in a bluesy little funk right now. I’m still sick and cannot seem to shake this cold/virus/plague, I have a ton of work to do (writing work, teaching work, house work, work!), my NaNoWriMo novel is going nowhere, the holidays officially begin for me as of next Friday when Sheri arrives and my house is wreck, the guestroom is a storage facility and my pantry is bare, plus I have all of these veterinary issues lately (and the corresponding bills). Jay is home for the weekend and I’m afraid all he’s going to be doing is working around the house (and probably doing the bulk of the work himself because I just don’t have the energy) and listening to me whimper that I’m hot, tired and feel lousy. Blah.
I commented recently that November is always my crazy-busy-happy month and then I usually get sick at the beginning of December because I run myself ragged. This year it seems I’m putting the horse before the cart, so to speak. I hate this feeling. It makes me want to give up the aspiration of a do-it-myself Martha Stewart holiday season and opt for an out-of-the-box Betty Crocker one instead.
Sigh. I need to snap out of it.
