I talked to the police chief yesterday and he was aware of the problem with my neighbor's dogs.  He said he'd talk to them and try to come up with a solution.  Lucky has been quiet for two days and a night.  I'm very proud of him and I hope it stays that way.

Since it has been so quiet, I've been working on this:

I've run out of ecru and the blue yarn so I will have to go looking for more.  I'm still not sure I like the metallic yarn.

My system is on overload again.  I haven't wanted to do anything.  I'm staring at stacks of papers, house work that needs done, and yardwork that I can't seem to finish up.  I have a brand new machine that I've barely touched.  I haven't really done any quilting.  I just stare at the potential projects and walk away feeling dejected.  I thought buying the bright fabric for my Fiesta quilt would make me excited but it hasn't.  My mom is coming to visit tomorrow and I should be so excited but I'm not.  I'm just in slow motion and thinking just seems too hard to do right now.  I'm just staring at walls.  Welcome to the depression side of bipolar.

Having my mom here will help though.  She'll help me organize things and get me moving again.

When I get feeling like that, I spend a day or two just looking through quilting books and magazines until I get my mojo back.
