Monday, Monday....

I apologize for not relpying to all the comments yesterday. I was out of the house most of the day (it was delightful! church out of town and lunch with friends!) but by the time I got home was pretty wiped out and headed for familiar territory...the couch! And that is pretty much where I was the rest of the day.
My blog activity is probably going to be sparse for a bit; the deadline for my banner project is quickly approaching and the banners, while a goodly way along, are not DONE.
I would freak out, but I have not had sufficient coffee to do a good job of it yet, so I guess that's for another post. And believe me, it will be here.....when I do it, it has to be just right....LOL!!!
All of you who have to meet deadlines know the dreaded "Oh-My-God-I'm-Not-Going-To-Have-It-Done!!!" sick feeling, and that is where I am today. So. The old blog-a-roonie may be a bit on the dead side for a while. Work is work and sometimes I have to completely hole up and focus. Sometimes I can juggle six things at once with no problem but for whatever reason, this is a project where I cannot. It has taunted me and continues to do so. Plus there have been some personal issues (friends, family) that have kept my mind distracted--yes, more than normal! Everything hits at once, eh?
At last check, I had 149 e-mails I had sort of glanced over.....just the title headers and not the contents, so if there is something DIRE that I need to read, please send it high priority. If I have not received your snail mail addy for the box give-away, please send it with high priority attached to the message! I don't want to miss anyone.
If luck is with me, I can get some good progress made and be back here babbling about squat pretty soon and just making everyone's day! (said with tongue firmly implanted in cheek!)
I hate being in this position, but if some of us would check the calender earlier in the year, some of us would have realized when the first Sunday in Advent was........
Until I can provide proper laughs and giggles, allow me to sign off; the lame brained, overworked and totally clueless Anne, bidding you all...

All to familiar with that feeling. Somehow, you'll find the way to get er done!

Glad you had a good day in spite of spending some of it on the couch.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I love my couch!!!! I spend way too much time there, but you know how it is! At least I could knit a bit....


marianne said...

then are are those of us who only get that final push going when the deadline starts to loom..... looking forward to having you back :)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey MArianne,

Another kindred soul! I never have this problem!!! (well, normally never.......)
Still tinkering thru the e-mails, then to work-work-work.
Think of me and laugh! A spastic flea, hopping all over!!!!


Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

149 emails????

I have the answer: delete, delete, delete. If it's important, they'll write back. If it's not, who cares? LOL

Frankly, I could never follow my own advice! LOL

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

That's why I love you Tristan----you say what I am THINKING, but I know I won't do.
Have plowed thru many...quick notes to family and friends, and damn, had to delete SALE e-mails.
AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! (I know there was something I just NEEDED there! LOL!!!)
I am more OCD than *monk*.....


Deborah said...

Oh Anne, you did provide a proper laugh and giggle with your mention of Advent! Good luck, and back away from the computer. **blows kisses** Deb

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


It sucks me in....finishing up my *haf-to's* on here, then off to town, then work.


Georgina said...

I agree with Tristan...delete!!! However, unlike the two of you, I do delete...usually lots of forwards from my brother's unemployed best buddy...they're usually just lame-o!!!! Now on my other email at yahoo, OMG, I get all kinds of FB stuff that I don't even read unless it's a comment for me!!!

Will go into the studio tomorrow, I think, after I drop Ian off at his father's and will sit there and try to come up with some ideas...skulls and skellies are still floating around in my head!!! I'm facing a block right now...more like block head!!!

Take care and don't work too hard...takes the fun out of it.

Love ya,

Anne - just take a week off from the whole blog world. We won't forget you, I promise. There is some stress with trying to keep up with everything. You should see my inbox! I just let them all pile up and up and up. Even when I read things, I don't always remember to delete. I think it's kind of like my house! Clutter, clutter. Take the time you need to get caught up with things.

Babbling about squat? But we LIKE your babbling! Never mind, do your banner and we'll still be here when you're done.

Sophia said...

Good luck with your projects...we will be here when you return. Looking forward to hearing about them. :)

Have a super Monday!

Awww sweetie, hugs to you and just breath. I know for me I work best under pressure. Not sure why but I often find myself with 24 hours to go and knock it to completion. Just remeber to get up and try to walk away for 15 minutes when you feel stifled. I don't know if it helps others but it does me. I will be thinking of you as I know the pressure. be sure to take lots of pictures so we can your work. Hugs. Tammy

Just a quick note, good luck with the deadline and thanks so much for stopping by and commenting.
I sure hope you are going to post pics of your banners.
Love and hugs.

You mean too much to us...We'll be happy for you when those banners are completed!...with photos!
xoxo, gypsy

I agree with gypsy whatever you need to do and immerse yourself in your process...the banners will unfold and bloom right before your heart. You are so loved! Count your happies!!! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
