Still need to change my 'tude

Monday, March 25, 2013

My mood isn't much better today than it was for the last few days. Even my 5k on Saturday didn't shift it, and running usually re-sets me.

Why the bad mood? DH is depressed, so isn't doing anything but work, eat, sleep and complain. The complaining has really got me down. The fact that he spent 18 on snacks yesterday got me down. The fact that he ate my fruit pastilles, knowing that they were mine and I am only eating them on Sundays during Lent, got me down. The lack of help around the house got me down. The fact that my job is mind-numbingly boring is getting me down. I want to stay in the organisation; my manager knows I won't stay in this role long as it is a stop-gap until something more interesting comes along.

None of it particularly earth shattering, just a general grinding down.

    Thanks Stonecot and RawCookie, your support means a lot to me.

I can feel my mood lifting a little - I'm glad to say that it is very unusual for me to be negative, and even more so for it to last this long.

Roll on some sunny days.

RawCookie, I've looked at Fly Lady and frankly, it seems rather obsessive to me, haha. I'd from the school of "I'd rather lie on the couch than dust under it", although I do tidy as I go along, as I am uncomfortable in a cluttered environment.

I'll have the virtual hug, and send some "rightbackatcha", hugs are essential to one's psyche. I had two from a workmate when I admitted to feeling blue.

Right, I'm off for a run, whilst it's still light, then a firm chat with DH.

    These things are all challenging - but it's the way you react to them is how you experience them - right. The external things you can't change - husband's behaviour, job, housework. For housework - I love a site called FlyLady (dot net) - and it has transformed my attitude towards housework (and other people actually) - it you have a moment, check it out - you might find it helpful.
Don't give up on youself NO MATTER WHAT - keep doing your runs, your Sparking - and hang on in there - sounds like DH is reaching a crisis point........... that's a tough one.

I wish I was nearer - you could pop round and off-load over a cuppa with me.
So - offering virtual support and a genuinely heartfelt hug of support.

    It's mostly down to the unremitting, relentless weather, I think. Things that you can normally shrug off, suddenly become unbearable! More snow, more grey skies, more biting cold, make normal life so difficult, it shuts us into our little homes, jobs and lives. Given a few days of walking out into the sun, and you'll be better again. I expect DH is suffering too, but he's taking the normal male path, eating and grousing. And boy, can't they grouse. My husband had a degree in it!
