Yes, I have confirmed that I have all of the symptoms and have developed a severe case of ennui!!!  I simply cannot get excited about anything right now…..not quilting, not traveling, not reading…..nothing!!!

I know that the cure is to focus on the wonderful people and things that I have in my life and to be grateful rather than disappointed!!! 

 

So, in an effort to move forward, I am going to try to write several short posts about the everyday, mundane things of life.  Some of these have been in my head for months but I just haven’t written them.

 

To get started……

Last night I had the privilege of speaking at the monthly meeting of the “Common Thread Quilt Guild” in Newnan, Georgia.    They were a wonderful bunch of women who waited patiently while I had projector/computer problems and then encouraged me profusely afterwards.

It was a good start on my path to beat ennui!!!!

…..more to come……

Good luck!! It's not much fun when this happens and it gets frustrating to waste time. Looks like you have some good ideas to get you started on the path to recovery.
