Lack of motivation

I'm finding myself dragging a little, looking forward just a little too much to Thanksgiving break and then to Christmas break. Part of this is simply the sheer amount of work I have right now that I know will be completed by Christmas. I certainly need the break. But part of it, too, is emotional as I'm wrestling with issues I can't really blog about. And I wish I could because I value the collective intelligence of the internets. I feel a little bit stuck and am bombarded by conflicting advice. I'd love to say more but can't. Sigh.

I wish running off to Aruba were an option because that's what I'd like to do. You know those Calgon commercials? I think I'm that woman right now. Everything *will* get done, I know, and decisions will be made and things will happen and the world will continue to spin on its axis. It's like when I was kid and desperately wanted to sleep through long car trips. That way, I'd wake up and we'd be there, and I could skip the drudgery in between. Unfortunately for me, I could never sleep in the car. Instead, I had to invent ways to entertain myself. Much as I'm creating ways to motivate myself now.
