The Blah Blues

Lately I have been feeling down in the dumps. I don't know why. I have been blaming my trip to Georgia.. after experiencing that great spring weather and warm sunshine, maybe I'm depressed at returning to snow territory. I'm so tired of slipping on ice, driving in icky conditions, not being able to see traffic due to huge snow piles, and being cold.

But I don't know if that explains my dumpy feelings.

Maybe it's just a tough transition from being busy and hanging out with friends in Georgia, to returning to my quiet home. I don't think so, though. Deep down I am kind of a home body and love hanging out at home with husband while we each do our own fun things: a combination of sewing, computer use, reading, meal prep, knitting, watching TV... some of these are done separately, some together.

I've been out for dinner with friends and attended a church meeting that was inspirational, and church today was warm and fun and joyful with lots of babies in attendance.

So... why am I feeling blue? It's probably nothing that a good nap can't cure. Or a sewing session where I get lost (in a good way) in the creative process.

I'll try to bumble through my day and hope I cheer up. Isn't depression depressing? I think so.

My happy marriage! I know how lucky I am to have a great husband and happy life with him. It is truly a fabulous gift. (another reason to wonder why I'm blue)

Hi Carol,
I am getting tired of the snow- it has snowed all weekend and while I did get some jobs done this weekend- I probably should have got even more done.
We are in the process of change. Our son and girlfriend are moving into our home with their two cats. It will be interesting to see how we all adjust to one another. The kids have worked hard to create a nice space for themselves out of messy basement.
Ah the dog days of winter- I worked on report cards this weekend -still lots more to do.
Have a good week- Perhaps a good book, a hot bath and some together time with your beloved is the antidote for your blahs.
Or some new creative project - a quilt, some of your great knitting-
I am sure you will find just the thing that will help to brighten your day.
Warmest regards,
