In The Doldrums

I've not been feeling too happy the past week. My boss was on holiday for half term so I was left to hold the fort at work and it was awful. Erin was also away with my mum and step-dad from the Tue to Sat and I missed her dreadfully even though I didn't expect to, so I was very emotional. And then yesterday was the worst day I've had in a long long time, another dreadful day at work and a major run in with my mum who I have a very difficult relationship with unfortunately due to my childhood. Last night I felt completely and utterly drained and like I'd hit rock bottom, but I guess when you hit that point you can either give up completely or claw your way back up, and as Erin needs her mum I can't give up so I only have one option...
So I haven't much stitching to show for the last week. I have worked on Tomboy QS a bit on and off and have done about 700 stitches in total I think, but my heart hasn't been in it at all. So today I've decided I am going to start timing again and do my proper 10hrs on her before I move on, and that might help me feel a little more productive.
Hope everyone is having a better week than I am and managing lots of stitching. Thanks to everyone who visits and to those who leave comments, I really appreciate it (hugs).
