I can relate, I this whole past year almost has been that way for me. I finally got my beads out and made a few things for gifts. Did some organizing. I find that I do that more than I do create. I've not even done a doodle since like April I believe. Which is HORRIBLE for me. I've not even been able to get back into reading, I used to do that every night. My entire life got dumped upside down in April and I'm still trying to pick up pieces and sweep up the parts that are too broken to fix. I can understand depression... A LOT. I'm waiting for the new year so that I can get back to my doctor and get my meds upped back to the dose I was on previously.
I wish you the best of luck on your trip, it may be just what you need. I'm going on a bit of a trip myself, but not near as far or fun as yours. LOL Gonna go see my parents in New Mexico for a few days. yay
I can sympathize with the whole being pissing you off too. I think we BOTH need to pull our muses out of the bar and get them back to work!
Hang in there!
