New Year Blahs

I don't know what it is, but I thought with the holidays over, I would get out of my gritchy holiday mood I always fall into. Not so. Everything feels overwhelming. It didn't help that Yahoo had an article on their homepage one day last week about how an unorganized/cluttered home (like mine, can be a sign of everything from ADHD, depression, all the way up to a brain disorder. In fact, there weren't many mental conditions left out of the list. So, not only am I an unorganized clutterbug, I am a mental-case too! LOL Soooo...I pondered that over some crocheting.

After such a productive week off, I have not been able to crochet much. I get about 30 minutes in before I go to bed. My 'Ashley' doily is coming along slowly. I am to the spirals though, and once I get past those little buggers, I think it will go pretty quick. Last nights efforts however were lost, as I discovered a mistake and had to frog back to where I had started when I sat down. Better there than after I was done with all of them right? I have to do some counting, but I may be off even further back than that. I am hoping not, but I was tired last night, so when I counted the spirals I did have, and what I need to have, I seem to have some extras on one side. I am going to recount tonight and I hope I am wrong. I should have some photos for the next blog to show the progress. Right now, it just looks a little funny with all these spirals (I have to do 80) hanging around the edge.

Happy Crocheting everyone!

Bah, I wouldn't listen to some article on yahoo that is probably written by some degree mill graduate. Personally, I think a bit of clutter and disorder shows signs of a working mind ...something is always going on.

I never once heard of one of pur great inventors being a neat freak. If anything, they've been quite the opposite...eccentric, disorderly and brilliant.

I hope the blues pass soon. I know they can suck...I've been there.

It's not a brain disease. Or maybe it is. Wait, I can't remember. It must be that disease. Errr, what disease are we talking about anyway? ;-) *huggrins*

PS. For Tuinkel, a little patchwork blanket, or a scarf and hat will do.
