State of the Slump

I clearly haven't made the wisest of choices in the new year.  
Yes, that there is three collections of pretty much back to back short horror fiction. Some of it good, most of it meh. That was not a good idea. Now I find myself in somewhat of a reading slump. Instead of reading in my free time, I'm watching the news just like this.
My scarf is growing and growing (I'll post a pic of my angry scarf whenever I can get my act together) but I know this is not helping my sanity and I don't know if I want to wear a scarf created in anger! Would you want to wear a scarf knowing it was created by grumpy hands?! The news is scary. It is infuriating. I feel helpless. But I cannot turn it off! 
So, if you're wondering why I'm quiet lately this is likely the reason. Feel free to send help. Or chocolate.
