Focus, not in

It's raining outside. I usually love these kind of days - slightly cool, rainy - days like this used to feel like a free pass to take a day off and just read, eat and sleep. Those days haven't made an appearance in my life in quite some time and I miss them.

Today I woke up around 5 am, my mind heavy with thoughts of all the things that I need to get done. Why is it that when times get stressful I want to do absolutely anything other than what I need to do? I had this problem when I was in college. If a paper was due the next day I suddenly wanted to strip a piece of furniture, make new curtains or even (gasp) clean the house. Today all I want to do is sew a mini-moopy.

Alas, mini-moopy will have to wait. I have orders to fill, orders to ship, pieces to sand, jewelry to assemble, inventory to take, emails to answer (my worst skill ever) and I need to get to the studio to do some glazing. I will try to work in some chocolate and perhaps a Dr. Pepper and maybe, just maybe I will accomplish half of what I need to. :)

Isn't the mini moopy the best?! I think we should have a mini moopy challenge! Wouldn't that be fun?

It's rainy here today as well. I know what you mean about stress making you not want to do what you should. I'm there now. Hopefully, I'll be able to push through.

The mini-moopy is way cute!

It's raining here too and all I want to do is crawl under a blanket and take a nap. I should be cutting and tumbling rings for chainmaille. Maybe just a short nap.

Wow, it sounds like it's raining everywhere! I wish we could all get together and have a slumber party!

1We had your rain yesterday, all day. You aren't alone when it comes to putting things off. Its our nature to procrastinate. Just like its ok to change our minds when we want. I myself work best under pressure. Really love the new necklace design.

If I could sew, the Mini Moopy challenge would be ON.
