Ho hum


I’m in a little bit of a mood. I wasted another perfectly good night. I would be really hard on myself for the lack of accomplishment, but someone told me that yesterday was the day that people were most likely to commit suicide…so there just has to be something with moods and sadness with this time of year. Don’t worry about me in the least…I’m not that bad off. I just have been in your typical rut. Don’t want to create…don’t want to be productive on anything else for that matter. Just want to sit around, watch the tube (unfortunately, as you know, there’s nothing good on – though I did catch American Idol tonight), and take a photo or two.

I did attempt to look for shoes tonight for CHA at Kohls. I never find anything I like at Kohls. They have some cute accessories (love me some Relic brand and Candie’s Jewelry), but I get really frustrated with the clothing choices. It’s not just Kohls…I struggle with finding clothing places that reflect my style and body type. I’m not a junior, but I’m not a miss either. I feel like most of the Misses clothes are too conservative…I prefer the junior styles but they don’t fit me. There’s no one store that I really like that carries my sensibilities (bright and basic with a twist). Is this too much to ask for? This is another thing I am really bummed out about…I can’t find two of my most favorite pairs of black shoes, inparticular a pair of flats that I got at Target last year that I love. They are really comfortable and cute and I would like to wear them to the show, but for the life of me, I have no clue where they are. Actually, I questioned their whereabouts a couple of months back (thought I left them at a friends house), but he says they aren’t there and I have no other clue where they could be other than some nook and cranny in my house that I haven’t surveyed. I really don’t want to have to spend $40 or so bucks on another pair of mildly comfortable shoes. The other pair is a basic pair of pointy-toed dress pumps, and I love wearing them with jeans. What is a girl to do?

Also, something I am bummed out about is the fact that I ordered Photoshop Elements for my Mac and it hasn’t come in. I got highly suspicious and called Amazon about it…turns out I entered the wrong address. I had been hoping to have it to get a jumpstart on my CT projects, but I guess it is Murphy’s Law, huh? I just can’t seem to get it together. The reason I have to have this version is because I have to write step by step instructions using that program. The more advance Photoshop version that I normally use isn’t complicated to me, but it doesn’t use the same menu or functions that the Elements version does…it has caused me a headache in the past, so I just gave in and purchased it. Nothing can be easy.

I am going tomorrow night to my friend Retta’s house for Mexican. I’m looking forward to it. I have a group of friends, here in Lex, that I hang out and take photos with. They are my Flickr friends. I have made 5-7 friends locally through Flickr and it has lately been to blame for my photo obsession. I just need to come up with some really cool projects to do with them.

And on a final note, I was looking through a CHA magazine today, and there was a photo of Suze Ormen inside and she looked a little possessed. I don’t know. I’ve never been to CHA, but I would have no interest in seeing her speak. I guess she can give her insight on the business end of crafting, but eh, seems kinda boring to me. Maybe I might be proven wrong, I don’t know.
