Have you ever been so tired that, at the end of the day, all you can think about is food (anything edible) and the sweet, sweet relief of not having to make any more decisions? I mean, the kind of tired where you could literally watch the paint peel for hours because blinking is just so exhausting?
That's where I've been for the past week. The wheel's still turning, but the hamster's dead.
I don't really know why. Maybe because it's February, and as the daylight's coming back, I can't deal with the extra hours in my day. Maybe it's because I know that spring break starts next week, and my brain has gone on holiday early. Maybe it's because of that family of nocturnal screech owls we adopted last week. I knew putting that cage in our room wasn't a good idea.
I don't know. But seriously - I have to get a grip!
I seriously need to get crafting! It feels like it's been for.ev.er. But nothing sucks my creativity like exhaustion. And I can't take it anymore!
***Editor's note: Some of those sentence fragments were unintentional. Too tired to fix. Hard to think over the screech owls.
So, in order to get me pumped, here's a page I made a few months ago with some rah-rah spirit:
When Cliff was in broadcasting school, he was given the opportunity to broadcast live from the BC Lion's CFL pre-season opener. It was such a wicked opportunity for him as an up-and-comer!
This page is in an album where I've included some 6-photo-slot 12x12 pages so that I can include more photos from this awesome event. Since there's no room for journalling on this page, I'll include a 4x6 journalling card in one of the slots.
I also need to find a way to include the media package (an 8x10 booklet) in my album. I just love these photos - I can still feel just how excited we both were for him. Ok. Feeling a little better already. :)
So, what about you? What do you do when you're tapped out of energy and creativity? And what are your solutions for oddly-sized memorabilia that you want to include with your albums?
Oh. And if you have any solutions for a craft-room that looks like the drawers threw up all over it, I'd love to hear those too. No reason. I'm, uhhhh, just wondering.
