Melancholy Monday

Happy Halloween for those who do that sort of thing. Happy Monday because I am striving to be positive today. I feel like a squirrel tried to make a nest in my nose last night and then do a scratchy little jig on my chest while adding a few bonus acorns to my ears.

Over all my allergy medication seems to work pretty well...and then there are days like today, usually after I have had to take extra antihistamine for whatever reason. But enough about that.

I have been working my crochet hook and plan on doing that some more today until my squirrelly fever goes away or my squirrelly girl toddler gets too antsy. I thought about going back to bed, but then the squirrels will just come back. Wish they had just stuck to my daughter's hair instead of doing their winter prep projects in my sinuses. ;)

I suppose I should go out and take care of the chickens too...but right now, I am thinking an extra dose of coffee...

Hope everyone has a nice Monday.

I felt like I needed to put up a disclaimer of sorts as I notice that my blog seems to have a few hits on it that I wasn't expecting. I am not a professional blogger and while I will try to keep up on my tiny little blog thing here, I rarely have time right now with other various life aspects. So, hopefully I am not disappointing any readers. I'll keep you posted if I plan on getting more exciting.

Reflecting on Focus

I sit here while my two year old lays on the floor at my feet continuously "raspberrying" her tired frustration. I had to wake her up so we could get her older sister to school for Orchestra.

I am busily trying to focus on something other than getting frustrated with constant interruptions. How many things does a person have the capabilities to do at one time? Me? I am not a multi-tasking type person.

Now I sit here with the two year old on my lap. She's talking constantly about something involving a tiny screw that probably fell out of my computer or something. She's tired, crabby, and very clingy. I should get her outside, but I want to get some business stuff done.

I can't seem to get her to stay distracted for more than 3 seconds, but she's a professional at distracting me.

Would I trade this in for anything else in the world? Never.

I Feel Dirty

*sigh* I wasn't able to stay away from facebook for more than a week. How sad is that? Part of it is that none of the other social network thingies are even up to par with how populated facebook is, and I have been on facebook for forever! I can't believe how long I have been on that dumb thing. But I have a crochet group on there that I missed and I have family on there that I missed, and no one was moving or really following me to google +, so I went back. *sigh* I guess I will just really limit my time spent there and change my perspective that it's a world community and not just some weird place to spy on people. In any case, I hope I get some good crochet inspiration from the ordeal. ;)
