The blahs. Or the blues. Whatever you want to call them.

I have them today.

I haven't been feeling very well...have some sort of sinus crud going on. McCain won Florida last night, which makes me feel a little sick on top of that. So sick, I didn't even scrapbook last night as planned. Joel and I are both feeling a little discouraged with his job search, and overwhelmed with our lives. And last, but certainly not least, I'm freezing to death. We have had so much snow lately, and the forecasts only say there'll be more. Depressing. That about sums it up.

So, I've been shirking all (well, I did do a little bit of cleaning already) my duties and doing some mindless playing around online this morning. Here's a few sort of fun quizzes:

Compared to other ice creams, coffee ice cream has a strong flavor, and it's packed with caffeinated sweetness. You're like that, too! You're always busy, and determined to stay focused as you move from one task to the next. You get frustrated when other people slow you down or hold you back, but when you're in control, you can find ways around any obstacle.

Had to laugh at the ice cream one. Even though I don't drink coffee or even eat coffee flavored ice cream, the description has me pretty much pegged. Also thankful that my blog is not elementary school level. Not that it matters. My photography blog came up as genius level, so I am guessing all the html in the pictures fooled it. Because I highly doubt I used many big words on it.

I will email out my layouts to everyone that asked tonight sometime. I need to get a better picture of one of them, and maybe even complete one other. Some of you that asked to see them, I have no idea of your email address. So, if you want to see them, go ahead and email me. (lalakme at gmail). You just have to promise to tell me your true feelings about them, and it's a done deal.

And now I suppose I will go mope a bit more about McCain, and try to get some housework done before I have to go teach this afternoon.

Happy Wednesday.

  1. I want to see layouts too!

  2. Cheer up.
    I'm gonna go get a sweet deal at the grocery store.
    It's pretty-much all I am living for. :)

  3. Life can be bombarding sometimes. We are in a bunch of snow here too! Things will be better tomorrow. Except for the election issues, I think it might get worse. Our country might be in trouble, I really hope not.

  4. I hear you Lara! McCain and too much stinkin' snow! Yuck. Ummm, I must say coffee flavored ice cream when combined with a fudgey mud pie crust-nothing better. (don't tell my bish)

  5. P.S...I'm coffee too!

    P.P.S...I did not go to college, but somehow manage to successfully read and interpret your blog. Maybe I'm a genius?

  6. Hey Lara, Cory told me about your blog a couple weeks ago and I just wanted to say hi!

  7. You and me both - I did a fair amount of shirking today (the houswork, that is).

  8. Chin up! Just remember, as cheesy as it is, the sun WILL come out tomorrow!
    I'm sorry you don't feel good, but just know that your blogs bring joy to everyone. And I'm sure your family loves you and that you will bounce out of this soon enough!
    Hope today is better!!

  9. I'm - you can count on me for an honest opinion.

    And...... pooh on the bad Wendesday. I was feeling it, too!

    Today any better?

  10. January gives me the blahs too. You should have seen the state of my life the last few weeks. I've had no motivation and just been sort of blue too!

  11. Missing you in the valley of the sun! Highs...61, Lows...40

    Love ya!
