MONDAY MONDAY MONDAY (follows SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY)


Me either!!...I swear to you my intentions were sooooo good and my focus seemed to be...well, focused... but alas it takes so little to lead me astray... Richard and I both have that terrible 'Syndrome' ...we call it 'Unfocuslosis' ..the first symptoms show up with simple things like gathering supplies to work with for the day...and then out of the corner of your eye you 'spot' something totally unrelated...you go towards that 'something' totally turning your back on the supplies being gathered... next thing you know you are outside sitting in a chair reading !! Or you are sitting at your work table and quietly humming to yourself a tune you have not heard since high school and next thing you know you are sitting alone in a room staring at yearbooks you didn't even know you still had.... you lose all track of time and space around you it's as if you were abducted by unknown forces that take you into the mother ship ( but without the 'probing') and when you come to.... you are doing something totally unrelated to the task you started with...
Do you suffer from this same syndrome? Do you hide it from friends and family? Is it taking over your life and filling your days with unfinished projects....??? Well...there is help my friends... I am not really sure what the Help Is.... so if you know... please let me know..... QUICKLY.... before I kill time again... I think I need to invent special 'Focus Glasses' that make me look straight ahead at all times ...so that the pesky 'something' can no longer reign supreme in my creative life ....

Please tell me why hide this from anyone. It can be a great excuse to fade out. Just say you are mentally designing something and need inspiration.

Good point Judy...only problem is,for me at least... I tend to stay faded once encouraged...and coming back to 'work' is a very hard thing at times... I do like to play and explore a lot...
I think that is why I hated school....I HAD to be there!!
Don't get me wrong..I LOVE to create...it's just that when I listen to the tap tap tapping of 'something else' ...I follow too easily...

Hi Jodi! I wandered over here via Debbie's Tiny Treasures and thought I would say hello. :-)

Also I thought I'd warn you that "Unfocuslosis" can evolve into "Completeavoidance Fever," which is even worse. The supplies end up sitting for several days in a row until you absolutely have to have that surface cleared off and then get hastily tossed into a corner and will take days to sort through once the fever has broken.

Good luck! ;-)

Hey There Kat.....

Ok...this was my worst fear...that my condition might develope further into "Completeavoidance Fever" ..OMG....I will never accomplish ANYTHING if this happens... is there any kind of a vaccine you are aware of??

Thanks for stopping by...and thanks too for the heads up on "Completeavoidance Fever"

Later,

Jodi
