Why am I feeling like this?
Sunday, April 15, 2012
I haven`t blogged for a couple of weeks. Guess I just don`t know what to write - or if I even want to write anything.
Have found the last couple of weeks hard - a little down and not quite sure why. Haven`t been on the top of my game so to speak. Have been stayng with my diet/exrecise in the week - but the weekends have been another story. But I guess as long as I stick with it 5 out of 7 days it is better than not at all.
Weekend has been a busy one so far - off to FIL's on Friday for the night - met his new lady friend (wife passed last July). BH found this hard - seeing someone watering his mom's roses - sitting at the dinner table with us etc. But we have to get used to it. He needs to go on with his life - it doesn't diminish how much he loved his wife or the life they had together. He just wants to have that type of life again and who can blame him?
Left there and drove to my dad's - did what was needed there and then off to see my mom at the home - then did dad's food shopping - back to his place to put everything away etc. Then off home. Today - it will be taking care of our house and doing our shopping. BH will also do my dad's laundry for him.
Why am I feeling like this? It isn't like there was something bad has happened. We had our grandson for the day last Sunday - which was great. Nothing major at work - just the same old boring stuff (maybe that is part of it - not feeling challenged?). BH and I are doing fine - no problems there. So why? Is it just the weather - the time of the year or post vacation blues?
Maybe a weekend of nice weather and staying at home taking care of myself - working in the garden will help get me out of this slump. Let's hope next weekend will be nice!

I'm so glad that you shared so honestly with us. You've taken stock of your feelings, you've talked it through, and you've created a plan of self care. As Audy said, take time to refuel you own tank. It is not selfish.
Thank you for helping all of us take a look at ourselves through your words.

I had a miserable day fighting with dh today, because we don't have enough to do. no jobs for either of us and he thinks only I should be working anyway, the way it's been for 10 years, but I am tired of it and think it's time for him to share the load..Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, how much ,fun are you having? That's what my dd said to me today, when was the last time you were happy and I said, I can't remember that far back... Hope it isn't the same for you.

Lessof, it sounds like you were doing a lot for others this weekend and that is wonderful. But don't forget to take some time for YOU. A little something special for yourself. An indulgence, like a good book, a movie, a walk with BH or even just reading the most motivational blogs here on SP. Anything that recharges your batteries. It's also good to remember that feeling a little down is part of life and there's nothing wrong with sitting with the sad feelings for a bit.

I have had periods of time like that also. No real reason for it just feeling down, bored, just wanting the day to get over with. Then seems like about the time i realize it is going on and maybe at its peak it seems to end. It might be something that snaps me out of it or just resolves itself.
Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, do the best you can, and you will get through it.
Hope the Spark returns soon.
