survival mode

lord, i'm on the brink of slipping into a funk i fear. i'm starting to worry about being able to find a job. really worry. i guess i thought i would have found something, anything after nearly 3 months.

don't get me wrong, if money weren't an issue i'd be digging this stay at home thing.

i am antsy. i want to create something. change something. color something.

we are going to start painting the bedrooms possibly this week.

i want to change the look of the blog too and have looked around a bit online but haven't found anything that jumps out at me. i wish i knew how to manipulate code--i'd design something myself. but, alas, i don't possess that skill.

i am dancing on the very edge of that chasm that could send me spiraling into a full blown funk and i am clawing at anything to keep me on higher ground. i peek over the edge, knowing full well i don't want to end up down there, but also knowing that it is very possible.

i should have noticed the signs. tuning out from blogging. tuning out from music. oddly enough the very things that inspire and move me are the things i turn away from when i'm travelling down that road to a funk. stupid huh?

so--if you know how to spruce up blogs let me know : )

i'm going to attempt to make a peach cobbler for the hubs tonight. maybe that will help keep me from going over the edge for today.

You describe being on the edge of depression (or a funk) very well.At least that's how it always feels for me as well.I know what's waiting for me,and I know I don't want to be like that,but I also know I maybe won't be able to stop it from happening.I hope that you can find something that can keep you in a good state of mind.

I really hope something comes along and shakes you out of your funk, I hate that feeling and I hate knowing I'm slipping into it. tracy

Hang in there. It is nervewracking knowing what is potentially ahead...
Will be thinking of you.
(A little funky here too).
