In The Mood

Do you ever go through a funky time where you just don't want to be around people? Especially people you don't know? I'm in the funk. The idea of meeting a new person and having to get past all of my issues, setting boundaries, the job interview-like interaction, ugh! It's just another piece of work.

Many years ago, when I was in Job's Daughters, I think I may have been either a princess or Honored Queen at the time, I told my mother that we couldn't possibly go to a function because there was no way I could make it to the end without insulting someone. I was tired of smiling and making small talk, admiring some old Eastern Star lady's gaudy dress, or listening to some long-winded speech about whomever was being honored. I had to go, and I managed to get by saying that I wasn't feeling well. This is what I am really good at, small talk, listening without the appearance of glazing over, the leaning forward listening that so many people want to see when they are talking, but it's a painful act sometimes. Ugh!, I'm even sick of my own mopiness!

I made business cards today and they are so beautifully simple, I can not wait to start handing them out. Let's plan to go somewhere fun Thursday after the show. Who's with me?


  1. I'm with you, on ALL counts.

    Nobody said this would be easy (your project...or life).

  2. Is it wrong that I feel this way at times now. :)
