The Blahs

Have you ever had a period of time where you feel like you’ve stopped trying? I’m having a week like that. I’m tired (I know, “wah!”) But seriously, the last 3 nights I’ve fallen asleep on the couch right after dinner. It’s really, really not like me. I feel almost zombie-like; I get dressed, but don’t care what I wear (mostly jeans & t-shirt w/sweater/sweatshirt over). I do my hair, but could care less how it comes out; using a spray bottle mostly so it’s frizzy. I just avoid the mirror.

This is why I haven’t written this week. I hate to write and be all wah, wah, wah, whine, whine, whine (unless of course its’ wine,) but that’s how I’ve been feeling all week & can’t seem to get out of the funk. Thanks for sticking with me, yes, I can see you from behind this curtain & I’m lurking around your site too BTW. Hopefully, I’ll be back up to speed real quick here.

The other reason I haven’t written is that I’m hoping to have some very, very big news very soon here. No, I’m not pregnant, get over that one right now. As much as part of me really wants another baby we are done. This big news is something I’ve talked about before, but it never really seemed tangible before. I’m not going to say what it is because I don’t want to jinx it, but that’s another reason I haven’t written; something potentially exciting may be happening and it’s all I can think about, but because it isn’t for sure yet, I don’t want to jinx it. So this topic has been taking up all my brain space and leaving any room for other things. You know how it is. I was going to leave you with some random thoughts from this week, but I got bored writing it. So I guess that’s it for now.

Just blog-hopped here from creative type dad.
I sympathise with you , I have a 15and a 5 year old and felt the same as you - still do sometimes, but even though you feel like it will never end, it will once the kids grow up a bit more.
I got to the stage when my eldest enjoyed his own space and left us to ours (at 9) and then our little 'surprise' came along and messed it all up again.
I love having a little one around again but look hopefully to the future when he too enjoys being shut up in his bedroom on his X Box - some of the time!

Mrs. Mogul: Not so much of a pepsi fan (too much sugar, especially now that I'm low carb). More of a DDP girl myself.

tisme2: I think my blahs are actually very hormonal, I made an appointment w/my GYN because of it.

Mrs & Alison: I can't say cause I really, really don't want to jinx it. But now that I've built it up I hope when I do say what it is, you aren't too disappointed. I may have set up anticipation that wasn't warranted. It is BIG news as far as I'm concerned, but you guys may go "oh" when I say it.
