I have been in a funk. It happens every year and every year I try to be more prepared but it always smacks me in the head. It's not just the anniversary of my Dad's death, it's also the less sunlight. Did you know that the sun set here at 4:56pm yesterday?! That is insane. Poor G-dog can't get the the dog park during the week anymore. I hate that. Also, I STILL don't have my kitchen back so the cooking I do to make myself feel better...not going so well. I have about zero counter space right now.
I needed a clean slate. I needed to wake up in the morning, looking forward to the day and plow through it. I did that yesterday and it felt WONDERFUL! My brain started firing it's synapses again and ideas for the holidays began to take shape. It was a relief. Just needed to post it and see it myself. Kinda like a reminder that things do come around. :)
