Sunday's Stupor

Monday, June 10, 2013

Today was one of those days. Actually, Saturday and Sunday combined into one of THOSE weekends. You know, the kind of weekend you look forward to with dread, and which fulfill every negative expectation. They then morph into the weekend from you-know-where, which you never think back to without shuddering.

Today I went from one activity to another, always running just a little (or more) late, and never accomplishing one thing that I wanted to. My time was not my own for one single moment until about 10:30 P.M. Yesterday was not much better.

Thus, the blog title refers to the fact that I am sitting in an armchair, laptop on my (what else?) lap, typing in a more-or-less zombie state, wondering if it is even worth it to get out of the chair and go to bed.

I have realized that the biggest problem is that I didn't get any 'me' time. I probably wouldn't have minded chauffeur duty, work full of difficult and demanding kids, horrible traffic, being late for stuff, etc., if I had had an hour or two to do something for myself somewhere in the middle. Which just goes to prove that one has to take care of oneself first, a concept I have a great deal of trouble acting on.

I absolutely KNOW that, if I had gotten even a little exercise today, I would feel much better now. So what I have to work on is somehow fitting in my 'me' time and/or exercise time. Aha! A new goal to work towards!

    Sorry your weekend was wonky. My Friday and Saturday was like that... the hurrier I went, the behinder I got... so I told DH Sunday morning we were playing hooky from church, taking a break and going to stroll the Seattle waterfront with the kids. It was nice to get a change of scenery. Next time life gets stressy, I hope you get some me time too!
