Discipline, determination, and work ethic have all fled from me. They’ve just up and left. In their place now resides the “Divil” and all of the temptations that are so alluring and delightful. I’m doomed. Doomed I tell you 😦
These file folders are all that remain of the 2010 paperwork. Seven file folders, and six trip envelopes. That is all that is left to complete 2010.
I’m so sick of this paperwork I could just scream. Two months I’ve been diligently chipping away at this task and have made such progress. Now, I’m finding it so intolerable to look at one more file folder.
The end is in sight, it is right within my grasp. I have about 10 days left to reach my deadline of March 25th and these seven file folders are going to herald my doom. Oh, woe is me.
To be able to spend day after day in this room.
Touch paper, squeeze out glue, smell the embossing powder as it heats up and becomes a shiny delight, hear the thump of rubber stamp pressed to paper, listen to the swish of scissors cutting, hold the grip of the paper trimmer in my hand and feel it shear through.
The Siren Song of my craft room. Calling to me in dulcet tones to come and bathe in the beauty of color, feel the textures between my fingers, revel in the sparkle of jewels and glitter – yes I said glitter – scoop up handfuls of treasure and pour them like water over my head and let them pool at my feet.
As I look over my shoulder at those last seven file folders yet to do and feel the wrench in my gut to get them finished and be free of them at last, the lure of my craft room has a much stronger pull on me and I find myself stepping closer and closer to the abyss into a land of bright colors and shiny objects.
Oh my soul is tormented and the torture is immense.
