Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

I'm feeling decidedly unspired today. Call it exhaustion from the weekend; consider it maybe a brain check-out after finishing round 3 with Blink. Maybe I'm just stuck trying to figure out how to incorporate a new snazzy idea in AWJ.

Whatever it is, I'm at the point where I don't want to do anything.... ANYTHING. TV is boring. Books are bleh. I sat outside and watched birds for a while, but it seemed to be the same old birds again, so it wasn't really blowing my skirt up. (A saying from my Great-Grandmother - a beer drinking, everything-eating, German immigrant who lived to the ripe old age of 95: "Whatever blows your skirt up". Ah, Grandma... what a gal.)

Heck, even Poker - which I haven't played in a while, tyvm - was interesting for about 20 minutes and then nothing.

Ever have one of these days? I get them every once in a while, and they drive me batty. It doesn't help that I have tons to do and don't feel like doing a stitch of it. I've got a database to update, stuff to sort, a house to clean, gardens to weed, lawns to mow, and... Well, that ought to be enough.

Maybe I'm making myself tired thinking about all the things I have to do. *shrug* I'm off to work on creating a new soup for dinner. That ought to take my mind off the blahs for a little while at least.

Maybe its the doldrums from finishing your latest draft of Blink?

Yeah, I hate those days. That's when I usually end up playing Spider Solitaire (medium level--2 suits) for hours on end. Something truly mind-deadening and a complete and utter waste of my time. I haven't had one of those days in a while... lately I've confined my procrastinating to reading, blog-surfing, and Vincent D'Onofrio. *g

Probably is, Tia.

I should've tried Solitaire, Erica. But even that seemed like too much trouble. I got out of it last night by picking up a book for research and getting lost in it. =o) Don't get me started on all the ways I have to procrastinate. LOL
