Wish the weekend wasn't over

I've been working on Sitting Pretty the past few days.



I like the way this one is coming. I know I would have this piece done in no time if I just kept working at it but, I seem to work on it for a while then put it down then pick it back up a while later.

Today was a busy sports day. There was the NCAA Men's and Women's games and the Formula One was over night so we had that tape to watch. Hartford played in the NCAA Women's division today at 12. Jennifer Rizzotti is the Hartford Coach and a former UConn player. I've always liked her and glad her team won. If they keep winning though they are going to run into the Uconn Women which will mean a loss. :(

The Uconn men won today too. Which is good after the pitiful showing they had Friday night against a 16 Seed team. Glad to see they have it together again.

The Uconn women won easily tonight. I was only half watching this as I was trying to finish a book I'd started the other day.

And if the Formula One from Malaysian Giancarlo Fisichella won. It's only his 3rd win. I've always liked him so I was glad to see him win today. In 2 weeks F1 heads down ton Australia. Both Paul and I are looking forward to that.

It was kind of a so so weekend here. I thought it would end up being a good weekend but, now that it's over I feel like it wasn't very good at all. I can't remember much of what I did on Friday or Saturday. I feel like I don't want to get up in the morning and go to work. Why bother when all you are going to feel is down. I wish I could take the day off but, I can't. I need the vacation time for Celebration and I need the money. :( I just don't know what I feel like doing. One minute I'm excited and looking forward to doing something then the next minute I could care less about it. The little voice in the back of my head keeps saying to me 'Why bother.' I guess it knows what I don't want to admit, that everything is probably pointless.

Maybe it's a good thing that you stith it in spurts. That way you don't become bored with it. It's a lovely design though. Those birds are very sweet.

Hey there! Cheer up! You know? I was thinking those same thoughts last night. Is it just me, or is there something depressing about Sunday nights? I hate them! I get all depressed, just about the time it starts to get dark. I like your stitching! very cute!

Your little birds are so pretty Jenn! I like the shading in the blue colors.
The merry-go-round of life can get to us sometimes. I hope you find some joy in the ride. :)

Wow, wow, wow!
I know that feeling too well, Jenn. Have you seen a doctor? You seem clearly depressed!
Life is hard, but it's also filled with little joys that make it worthwhile. Try to see the beauty around you, seize those moments when you are with your beloved ones, doing things you like to do: they are moments of happiness. Perhaps you need a "filter" to help you see things better?... See a doctor, dear!
Lots of hugs!

The birds are so cute! I just love Valerie Pfeiffer's designs, don't you? Thanx for the comments you left on my blog. I had fun reading through yours too. Cheer up, in the roller coaster of life, there's always ups and downs. Things'll start looking better soon, you'll see.
