Misc. Nonsense

Do you ever get in a funk?

I do.

I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who suffers from this official disorder but I'm currently in one now.

I don't really know why.

Life is good.

We're healthy.

Hubby has a job.

I get to stay home with my two children everyday, educate them & shape who they will become as adults.

Why do I have this blah feeling lately?

I know I usually get a little blue during this time of the year anyway - it's winter. blah.
Spring is too far away.

I have a long list of projects I want to do now that we've really settled into this house but now that I'm homeschooling the children my project time has been drastically diminished. blah.

I miss my friends from our old town and those that have moved to other locals. blah.

It's just not the same discussing painting projects with an 8 year old girl who only wants to talk about doing her room & doing it NOW and an 11 year old boy who could care less what color the family room is. As long as it has Wii he's good.

How long does it take to feel really at home in a new community? I'm not there yet. blah.

Last night the kids were looking at the web site for their old school - just looking for glimpses of their friends and asking if we could move back to our old house.....blah.

So, here I am in my Official Winter Funk of 2009 boring you with all of my nothingness.

I am thankful for all of the above and don't usually wallow in self-pity but this morning I just had to have my pity party & will work on my outlook later.

On a positive note, we have some family members coming this weekend for an overnight visit. Maybe that will help to cheer me up.

The weather is supposed to be in the 60's this weekend - I'll go sit outside and boost my Vitamin D levels.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Sorry you've got the blahs.....since you have company coming, get something tasty/good smelling cooking, and clean a tad, and maybe that will wipe away the blahs. Remember to put your smile on, as you're not fully dressed without it! chessey, huh???? Have a good day! and yes, I do get in a funk pretty regularly....

Why not call someone from Mayberry (old home town) just to say hi?????

To be honest, it took us a good 2 1/2 to 3 years to get settled here (we've been here almost 5 years now) and really feel at home. Now I can't imagine living anywhere else!

Have y'all found a church? That made a huge difference for us.

Keep smiling! Spring will be here soon!

Oh girl I hate having the blahs. I definitely think it is the weather...we need warm sunshine. It took us quite a while to settle where we are now (meet people and feel at home) but now I can't imagine living anywhere else. I do hope your nice weather this weekend and your family members help bring on the cheer. Have a great weekend!♥

Winter blues are just the pits. I think we all have those days. Now combine moving to a new state, changing your lifestyle, adjusting to a new job and it's no wonder! Remember I'm only a phone call away! I understand!

I struggle through this time of year -- I understand. but doesn't the sheer act of writing it down make you feel better? xoxo

Shannon said...

I feel like that some days too! When ever I feel like that I usually do a little work out and it is amazing how much that can boost energy. Have fun with your family! I love having company.

A little sun will do us a lot of good. I know it.
