Crappy, Gloomy, Gray Day

I've been thinking about whether or not I should continue this blog. I don't feel that I've found my niche nor do I have any life changing information to share. Is this just another time waster? Not everyone loves my grandkids as much as I do. My grandson is becoming such a challenge and I'm getting so stressed. It seems like I'm always crabby and complaining about something, who wants to read that kind of stuff??? I have been sick for over a week, I didn't have any ambition and felt like I was living in some kind of fog. I'm starting to feel a bit better and had a list of errands to take care of the rain, the cold rain. We've had a LONG winter.............  We need sunshine and 50 degrees soooooooooooo badly!!!

Obviously I am still not myself......I had free $ to spend at a department store today and I couldn't even find anything to spend it on. How sad! maybe next week I'll find something. 
Before I came home I picked up a few things at the grocery store, including some brownies ....and I ate over 1/2 of them :-(  Sometimes I just  feel like "no one else cares, why should I?" 
I was planning to make some cards today, the only time I do is when I go to my friend's Stamp -a-Long, but I just didn't feel like going out in the rain again. I felt like eating brownies and staring at facebook. :-(  The last 2 weeks of yoga I wasn't able to go......and I didn't go tonight either. :-(  I decided to stay home and do some cleaning up because last week I did the bare minimum around here. I know myself-I feel much better if I think I've accomplished something. 

As I was eating lunch a friend called me........not sure why......anyway I told her I was just having a pity party and most likely it was because I am really bad about taking my meds when I am not working....and I am sure that last week I missed more than one day. She reinforced how important is is to take meds every day, as directed! OK, OK!
Later she stopped over with a pretty package for me.....wrapped in the prettiest spring paper...from the thrift store...where else? It wasn't about the little trinkets (that were spring-like and were to remind me that spring IS coming), but it was about friendship. The little plate above was given to Tina in 1993 and I'll return it to the thrift store so someone else can share it with a friend. The card is a keeper though!

My kitchen and living rooms look presentable again, the laundry is done, and I won't have time for anymore pity parties tomorrow (at work). Green grass and 70 degree temps will come....they will, they will! I'll be more consistent with my meds and say 'phooey' to...................

I hope your week is off to a better start than mine was.


  1. How very SWEET that you have a friend that came over to cheer you up!!! I miss my BFA...I can't call her and she certainly can't come over!
    It's the weather!!! It's going to SNOW this week and I've had ENOUGH! It's sunshine that makes us feel better!
    Take care!

  2. I want you to keep this blog going or I won't be updated about you. I love the way you write.

  3. Hey, some weeks I feel like quitting blogging too. I just write about my mother and work! Anyway, you need some sunshine, or Vitamin D. Ask to borrow my happy light.
