Having a hard time getting over the hump today...

Have you ever been deep in a funk and haven't been able to climb out? I'm getting there...deeper than I want to be at this point, deeper than I have been in a while...I have gotten out of the house and did my hair/makeup but I just can't shake this gloomy feeling...sinking deeper...stuck...tired. I was hoping it was just the cold, dreary last breath of winter -- but its more than that...its bills, medical stuff, food UGH...this economy sucks and things that wouldn't normally be so bad are just unprecedented...its pirates and taxes and shots and unemployment and headaches....and, and...

What are your secrets for getting out of "the funk"? I'm open to anything...

Maybe some spring flowers?

My foot hurts! And other cranky musings for a Thursday...

  • My left foot is really hurting...and its swollen and I can't keep it in certain positions...its probably stress fractured again! My right foot feels slightly better, but not by much...I need to stop running around and standing on my feet so frequently, easier said than done, right?!?!??!?!
  • Yesterday and today they have been replacing rotten wood on the outside of our townhouse, so its been constant banging, hammering and wood falling from great heights (starting at 9:00am)
  • Martin got most of the cleaning done for me before my sister came...I love that guy! I still have to clean my bathroom and do a quick once-over of the whole house...the girls had another "not so great idea" and spread purple Easter grass all over the first floor of the house...after wearing it as hair...they are so funny...until they had to help me clean it up!
  • Caitie is coming tonight to spend a couple days with us...she's going to help me organize the toy closet in the loft and we'll do some fun things ... she's going to help us on Saturday at the shop, while we paint and move things around, she can organize the ink containers and I'm sure will find some fun things to play with, she always does! I feel like even though she was here while Elizabeth and the girls were here, I didn't really get to "see" her or smooch on her.
  • I have to bake a dessert for Sunday...want to make something "red velvet" for Marty's sister's house...we already celebrated with my family last weekend (I actually feel like its over and done with!) so it should be sorta relaxing
  • I need a new keyboard! I spilled jelly on my old one (its at least 5 years old) and the keys are sticking...I have it on order, I hope it comes today! The space bar is particularly troublesome!

Okay, enough crankiness for today -- I'm going to do a separate post with some cute Easter pictures....

Topic jumble Thursday

I have a jumble of topics to share today:

This is will brighten your day!

I'm not making good progress on my list, but it will all come together in the end... I got to do some stamping and "paper piecing" last night...posting here so I can share with everyone:

Here's some sad news and an output of today's economy:

GL Canceled!
Soap Opera Digest has learned that the cast and crew of GUIDING LIGHT were notified today that yes, the 72-year-old show has been canceled and will turn out the light on Sept. 18. "Being on the air for more than seven decades is truly remarkable, and it will be difficult for all of us at the show to say goodbye," said Executive Producer Ellen Wheeler in a statement. "I'm proud of everything we’ve been able to do, including outstanding storytelling, our community service around the country with Find Your Light and the launch of our new production model. This show has such a rich history, wonderful fans, and I'm honored to have been a part of the GL legacy."

Adds GH Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps, who helmed GL from 1991-95: "GUIDING LIGHT has a very special place in my heart. I began my career in daytime there as a production assistant and later returned as executive producer. It was a privilege (both times) to be a part of such a fabulous group of people who did such outstanding work. Some of the most talented actors, writers and directors have walked through the doors of GUIDING LIGHT. The industry will mourn the loss of this beloved show, but GUIDING LIGHT leaves a rich legacy for all of us in daytime to treasure. I wish all my dear friends a gentle landing."
