Day 177: Hunker Down

I got some much needed rest today. Which is good because I decided to start reading the news again. I need all the strength I can muster.

Americans still can’t manage to take care of who needs it most. Just more of the “get rich while scamming the poor” shtick. It’s old and we’re tired of it.

Call you senators and pitch a fit. People are going to die if we don’t.

Day 172: Return

My son came home today. He says he had a good time but he cant tell me what he actually did. He tried, but he wasn’t very good at expressing himself verbally today. I just listened and was glad he was back. Normally, I need a break from him but several days is more than enough.

On the other hand, I’m starting to feel a little down. This happens when I spend a lot of time on my own. I enjoy my solitude most of the time, but I had a weird, lonely feeling today. I’m supposed to get some writing done but I’m having trouble finding inspiration.

Maybe I’ll feel better later.

 

Day 168: Travels

My son left for a week of camp this morning. I was a little nervous but I’m sure he’ll be fine. This is the farthest he’s gone without me and that’s a little jarring. He’s okay. It’s just church camp.

He had a choice between boy scout camp and church camp and he went with church. Shocking, I know. I don’t think there was spiritual reason. Church camp includes more air conditioning and less work; simple as that. I can’t be mad at him.

That said, I’m left with way more time to kill than is good for me. I’ve planned crochet projects, buy that really depends on how I’m feeling that day. If you are the praying sort, put in a good word for me this week.

I’d appreciate it.

Day 166: Mess

I’ve had a weird day. I’ve…

-woken up far too early

-flaked out of a potentially important networking event

-passed out.

-woken up with the shakes

-felt terribly guilty for making people worry about me.

I think I’m okay now, just needed to eat. It’s still a bad feeling that I know how to avoid. I failed at taking care of myself again.

Day 155: Twisting Yarn

In order to give my brain something to do, I’ve started a new crochet project. My friend is having twins and I’ve got baby shower gifts to make. I’ve got at least three items on my radar.

I know this is gonna take a little time and I gave myself plenty of it. The shower isn’t until September. I could make things all break as long as I can fight off my depression. YAY!
