I'm so tired

17 Day Diet
Cycle 1: Accelerate, Day 2

Day in, day out. Week after week. Month after month. I get older and everything else just goes on.

I'm bored. I'm tired. I'm tired of stupid people in the news. I'm tired of people asking me the same questions over and over again at work. I'm not even motivated to write. I want to put something meaningful on paper and all I do is stare at the screen. They say to write what you know, but what I know is no one wants to read about what I know.

What I really want to do is just DO something different. I want to quit my job and take a chance, or move to a strange city. I want to try the extraordinary things I should have done in my youth.

I want to go to the airport and buy a ticket on the next flight to anywhere, just to go somewhere.

But I've got responsibilities. I've got a husband who depends on me. I've got kids to take care of. I've got bills to pay.

Call it a midlife crisis. Call it suburban burnout. I don't know. All I know is I can't even tell one day from the next most of the time.

    Sounds like you need to do something really fun and memorable just to mix things up. Sometimes we can't completely ditch our lives and escape altogether, but surely you could take a day and find something awesome to do. Maybe you can involve your family in it as well because maybe all of you are feeling the blahs. GO FOR IT!

    As I was reading I was thinking midlife crisis. I don't mean this in a mean way just an I can relate way. The older I get the more I understand midlife crisis.

Mother's day is approaching so you can plan a day with out any guilt of doing something just for you.

Or maybe you need some down time with your family and just camp out in the living room for the weekend. Before I went back to c1 I decided to make breakfast for dinner (pancakes and bacon and homemade blueberry sauce) and was surprised that everyone was so happy about it and it happened because I was feeling too lazy to make dinner.

If Momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy. Maybe your family is feeling the blues too.
