Do you ever get to that point,..

When you just feel like you are at a stand still and getting nowhere fast?

You lack the enthusiasm and motivation to do anything, even though there are a million things, you could, should, would be doing?

I feel like, I am at that point right now, and have no clue how to overcome it.

Wow! You too? I think we are all in a holding pattern until the next big event shakes things up a bit. In the old days, I would turn to drugs, or alcohol. I haven't found a good substitute yet. Let me know what you find out. :lol:

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Yes. I've been emailing myself To-Do-Lists lately. I lose focus easily at times...exercise for me seems to be the best kick-starter...even if it's a 15 minute walk. I'll set aside everything and go for a nice walk and then my head can think more clearly. :)

Not so wild about you already marrieds and having your spouses with you feeling this way. Gives me a feeling of impending doom.

Heather, things will change - dramatically and overnight and for the better - when Nik arrives.

I can tell you that life before-Thanti and life after-Thanti are two entirely separate propositions. It's been just wonderful having her here. A new bounce in my step!

I'm sure when Nik arrives you'll be feeling the same.
