Creativity = sucked dry.

Blah. That sums up how I'm feeling lately....just blah. I haven't stitched much - on anything - but I'm apparently going through one of my "stash accumulation" phases. I hate that -- all it does is make me feel guilty. So I look, and make lists, and HOPEFULLY keep my clicky fingers off the mouse..... Next month DH and I are heading to Niagara Falls (the Canadian side) for a weekend, and since he "needs" to use a gift certificate at a store that closed their location here, I'm allowed to pick one stitching store to drool in. Right now the front-runner is the Village Cross Stitch Shoppe in Orchard Park, NY. Any bloggers out there know of bigger/better stores in the area? I'll only stop in one of "my" stores, since it is supposed to be a romantic togetherness weekend!

And now, to illustrate how truly blah I am today, a meme. (from Suz)

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. librarian
2. lifeguard

Four movies I would watch over and over again:
1. Ever After
2. The Princess Bride
3. Sleepy Hollow

Four of my favourite foods:

4. my homemade turkey club casserole

Four places I'd rather be right now:

3. a beach somewhere
4. home in bed (or stitching!)

I recently did battle with someone regarding the yumminess of saurkraut (I am on the pro-yummy side, btw).

Erin, sometimes this is just a down time of year. I'm sure your zest for life will return! Have a great time in Niagara!!

Well I hope you don't feel blah for too long. I understand the feeling well... it really cuts into stitching time!
