A penny for your thoughts

*** Update on Friday's vomit situation (thank you to everyone who left a comment)... so it turns out that the raccoons are not taunting us after all!! It's actually a fungus called Fuligo septica (Thanks for the link S!)

There's a really weird bug going around and guess who caught it? I have a sore throat and it's slowly working it's way to my head - ya know, that cloudy hazy feeling?! So odd, coz I was just thinking... wow, I haven't gotten sick in a while. OH IS THAT RIGHT? BAM! Here you go!

My weekend was a little stressful, work-related stress. I've been working on a big{ish} project for a while now and there's a big chance that it may not happen anymore. I'm not going to go into the details but the whole stress of it prompted me to rethink my work life. Mainly about blogging. Nothing to do with this weekend's events, but lately I've been thinking about it a lot and I'm starting to realize that this world/community, like the corporate world, has parts about it that I can certainly do without. I know, I know - very naive of me to think otherwise. Maybe I'm just meant to live in a secluded cabin (with a garden of course!) Or maybe my head is just cloudy from this damn bug and I'll feel differently about it next week.

Agreed. It really, really sucks when something you've invested time and energy and good thoughts in looks like it might not pan out. This internet-based, be-your-own-boss, handmade world thing we've got going on here is really freaking hard work. And sometimes I just want to run away, too!

Once anything becomes a chore that you no longer enjoy, it's just not worth doing. Especially if it's a chore before it even started!

Hmm...I wonder if that means I should stop cleaning my house. I no longer enjoy it, it's become a MAJOR chore!

ha! good point about cleaning :)
I guess sometimes you just have to think of it as a "sign" so you don't get too depressed over things not working out. (aka faith to some)
