I brought in the New Year playing Guitar Hero World Tour (Decades) for the DS. I really was planning on going to bed before the turn of the year (Hey I worked on NYE so give me a break) but I got sucked into the game and was trying my darnedest to unlock the Bon Jovi song (I didn’t succeed that night). I then spent the next 45 minutes trying to calm a totally freaked out beagle. See our neighbors (the ones across the street who brought us the best tamales in the world just hours before) obtained what I am sure are very illegal and very noisy fireworks and shot them off from their front yard. I know I have mentioned before that Roxy is afraid of fireworks…but these really did a number on her. She absolutely refused to go outside…even well after they finally stopped. She barked and whined and shook and paced…and hid. She knocked a lamp completely off the table it was on and pulled it out of the outlet as well (luckily it landed in her big poofy bed so it didn’t hurt the lamp any). The rest of New Years Day was spent doing normal things like laundry, working on Guitar Hero for the DS and preparing for work the next day.
Then we have today. I did the whole work thing…which was typical and exactly what I thought today would be like- me changing hundreds upon hundreds of passwords in requests that accumulated during the break (pretty much knew that was a given since I had worked New Years Eve too and did the same thing).
So far I feel like I am letting 2009 down and I didn’t even bother to make any resolutions so it’s not that I feel I have broken them already. I am just in my usual winter time funk -I get into one nearly every year. This year’s isn’t as bad as last year’s funk but it is there with its funkalicious self…trying its best to drag me down with it. I have so much I want to do but I just can’t find myself motivated. AT ALL. Whether it be my letting my laundry go until I absolutely have to do it, the fact that I have been fairly sporatic both writing in my blog and commenting on other’s blogs (it’s not you…really…it’s me I promise), the fact that I have a writing project that is about 70 percent done (or the first draft of it is anyway) and I just cannot get it together enough to finish it, or the fact that I can’t stick to anyone thing for very long- whether it be a crochet project or playing a nintendo ds game. I can’t even get out of the funk enough to learn how to use my (new to me) dslr camera so I have an idea how it works before I take it to the races at the end of Feb. Sigh. And let’s not even talk about that evil date looming upon me and all that that signifies.
So far 2009 has been the year of the funk. How can I get my game back. And my year back before it runs away from me for good?
