Missing Mojo!

I seem to have misplaced my blogging mojo lately. Please forgive me if I haven't read or commented on your blog. For one thing, my computer is from the dark ages and so incredibly SLOW!

Plus, to tell the truth, I've been feeling a wee bit stressssed lately [see, I couldn't even spell stressed right!]. I'm a worrier!! Worry about this and that and so many things right now. My head aches, my neck and shoulders are tense and hurt and I can't sleep past 3 or 4 am nearly every day. Well, I usually do fall back asleep finally around 5:15 am and then the alarm goes off at 5:45! Time to get up -- ugh!

I really need to remember and repeat daily, no . . . make that hourly, one of my favorite Chinese proverbs: "Worry doesn't empty tomorrow of its problems. It empties today of its strength."

Already I feel better [thanks for listening] and in attempt to get my mojo back, I thought, how about a post about nothing really? Wow -- that sounds interesting, doesn't it? :) Hmmm -- wasn't there a slightly successful tv show in the past about nothing!
So, here goes with some things I've really been liking lately:

Love this hat, but don't have the guts to wear it though
I totally need it to hide my hair and dark circles under my eyes!
I think you have to be a bit younger than me to pull off a cool hat like this!

These are Maddy's school shoes! Aren't they the most adorable ever? Little Nike Mary Jane's!! I searched for my size. But, bummer -- they don't come in adult sizes.

I love love love this rolled-paper wreath. I saw it on some blogs last year. Please forgive me if you're the blogger whose photo I borrowed. It's my inspiration!

I hope to make one myself this year!

Ready for storms and power outages with all these lovely candlesticks and candles!

Isn't that chunky little mercury glass candle holder cute?

How about those little bottles? Adorable!!

I've missed your updates, but blogging shouldn't be a stressful thing. AND....sleep is too precious to have it interrupted at 5:15am. Yikes! Cute shoes. And I'm also loving all the variation of paper wreaths that I keep seeing cropping up all over the place. Hang in there. Virtual (((HUGS))!!!

So sorry to hear you are stressed! I think you should treat yourself to a day at the spa and maybe a little botox and you will feel much better. Your eyelashes already look fabulous! Hang in there!

Great finds too!

You aren't the only one that has been lacking on the blogging lately. I have been horrible lately. Don't let the stress get to you. Just take a few deep breaths and then a long soak in the tub.

Well I'm a worrier too, and I just wrote down that wonderful Chinese proverb. Please don't worry Janet, that's easy for me to say but hard to take my own advice. Get some botox, maybe a pedicure a all helps. :)

Love your shopping finds. I've been collecting mercury glass before it became popular. Love that wreath and the hat too! You have awesome taste.

Gail said...

Oh, and blog whenever you feel like it. I am in a blogging funk myself right now.

Kim said...

I am with ya! I love the Proverb. I hope you can get past your worries soon. I have been sick,our whole family has and it is going to stress me out if we can't get over it soon!

Lissa said...

I'd say that this is a lovely blog post and doesn't seem to be missing any mojo. :) I hope you get to that wreath! It will be beautiful!

From one worrier to another - thanks for your cute post! I love all your cute "wants" and by the way you could wear that hat! I have seen those wreaths as well - perhaps I will get around to making one - one of these days! I love candle holders of all types - I actually just saw one similiar to the bottom picture (mercury glass) at TJ MAXX Homegoods. It was really cute! Hope you are enjoying a worry free weekend!!!

I positively love that wreath. And those shoes. I will pray that you can sleep better. I know missing sleep is one of the most STRESSFUL things ever!
