Lost my stitching mojo

I haven't stitched in a couple days. I am not sure why. I am trying to finish the Hollie mouse by the end of the month, but not sure if that will happen. It's funny, I thought I could have all these great finishes this month, but so far, I am having a not-good time stitching a tree branch. But I want it finished. I know this is just a couple days funk. I've been busy and then when I get home, I have been too tired to work. And I have been stressing about my income tax. I was missing one of my W-2s; it never got to the house. I finally managed to get a hold of the payroll person to ask for it, and she was like, "I mailed it out on X date." OK well I didn't get it, and I need my W-2. I was a little traumatized because last year I owed a great deal of money to the state, and was so worried that I didn't pay enough taxes. I was paranoid for no reason because I sat down this morning and did them online. It was quicker to do both online than my state taxes on paper.

So they are in now, I already have the dates when the refund will be in the bank, and I only HAVE to make a payment of $200 for Robbie, so I should have enough to get my SC subscription renewed, plus take the little dogs to the vet (which is gonna be really fun because the only medical information I have about Robbie is that he was neutered in August, he broke a tooth and it was root canaled, and he got a rabies shot in June of 2006 in another country. His shot record is in Dutch. My vet doesn't speak or read Dutch. Other than that, we'll probably just have to guess based on his sister. Woo hoo!

I probably will buy a little something stitchy, even if it's just the supplies for this:

These are the colors I want for my sewing room. Isn't this pretty.

Rachel, I stitched that seaside Welcome and it hangs in my hall! It's a fun stitch. I did it on 6 count Tula and it's huge. I also didn't stitch the shell on the bottom border, instead I whip stitched on a real starfish and real sand dollar. You can see a not so great shot of it here:
It's an easy stitch!

I guess I'm not familiar with how your taxes work down there but why do you have to pay for a dog?

I'm a little scared to do mine because I owed so much last year :oS

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
