In a dead zone

"self-portrait" (dead zone), janneserojas©2010

I feel like everything in my life right now is kinda completely in a standstill because of my full-time job as a designer for a not-so-nice company. I'm drained every evening when I get home, and I have been pushed and pulled creatively in every direction so that I have no creative juice at the end of the day. I feel like in a dead zone of creativity. Don't get me wrong I have million ideas swimming through my head, I just can't execute them. When I get home too, I have to make a choice do I go out and just relax and enjoy my friends and family, do I stay home and hang out with my dogs who are craving my attention, or do I stay home and ignore them and create. Making these choices suck, and my partner would like to have a family but it's so hard to imagine getting pulled any further without completely breaking. How do you do it? maintain a healthy balance? I have no idea but I'm glad I'm going on vacation soon!

Meet Sweet Charles! *cross post*

Charles is one of the sweetest kitties we've ever met. He's genuinely affectionate. He just wants to hang out with you. Charles doesn't mind a good squeeze, he will not squirm or kick to get away from your love like many other kitties he will just melt in your arms. He likes a belly rub. He's really curious and playful, and he will follow you where ever you go. He's good with other cats and with older kids. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, so if there's another kitty in your home they should be a kind kitty who likes the company of other cats.

Charles is a fancy cat, probably a Ragdoll or Snow Shoe (the rescue group that is working with my aunt has him listed as a Siamese). He came from a terrible situation and my aunt rescued him and brought him back from close to death. He was found in a building's parking lot abandoned by a hoarder who was too mentally ill too care for any of her cats so she just let them out. Charles had no idea how to fend for himself so he suffered badly. He had a terrible upper respiratory infection that caused him to lose an eye. Now he's the picture of perfect health and he's still absolutely beautiful with his lovely blue eye, he looks like he's winking at you which makes him even cuter.

Charles is being fostered by my aunt Raquel in Queens and she will have you meet Charles after you have put in an adoption application here are the links to the Cat Rescue organization handling his adoption:
