So which design from Good Goddess should be purchased?
Okay, now that I've seen them side by side like that, it's clear. BOTH will be purchased. Hey, I'm bummed, okay? Shopping helps.
DevBear and her hubby are in Japan! Go read about her first day. It all sounds simultaneously exhausting and exhilarating.
I have decided to not fight this little ebb/flow of depression. Take a look at those Tarot cards - failure, sacrifice and interference. They say it all. From the comments on 8 Swords:
"...an obstructive and difficult period where serious damage can be done to our material environment, our emotional balance and our overall sense of well-being..."
You get the picture. Last night when the shoulder/panel join on Puppy Love's cardigan got screwed up, it took a conscious effort to not fling it at the wall. I feel like a Superfund* site that should be cordoned off and littered with signs reading Unsuitable for Human Occupation Due to Overwhelming Stupidity and Humiliation.
On the productive side, I've burned quite the CD of mood-appropriate songs. Who knew that my music collection was so depressing? On the disk: These Arms of Mine, Otis Redding; Love's in Need of Love Today, Stevie Wonder; Graceland, Paul Simon; Crazy Baby, Joan Osborne; Ice, Sarah MacLachlan; Here Comes the Flood, Peter Gabriel; Is It a Crime, Sade; How am I Different?, Aimee Mann; Does She Talk?, Matthew Sweet; Madman Across the Water, Elton John; Wrapped in Grey, XTC; Pissed Off, Angie Stone. But best of all is Aimee Mann's Invisible Ink. And yeah, I know, listening to downer music is probably not going to help, but who wrote a rule saying we have to be chipper all the time? Now if I could only get my hands on some Xanax and a blowtorch...**
There are two positive things to note: I'm walking in the American Heart Walk on September 20 and in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on October 19. They're both causes close to my heart. To find out how you can get involved, hit the sites or mail me.
Kisses, everybody. Enjoy your weekend. I'll be watching baseball, drinking beer and riding the bike. But hopefully not in that order!
*No, Ator, this one *didn't* come from you; my dad worked Superfund cleanup for years. Though it's not a long path from Elvis to Otis Redding. ;-)
