Thanks to everybody for your comments on the last post, I really appreciated them. And thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.
I'm doing a little better, but I've decided that the end of February and March (at least so far) is the month of doldrums.
Every time I say* the word doldrums, I think of The Phantom Tollbooth. Have you read that book, by the way? If you like words it's lots of fun. Milo, the boy in the story, gets lost in the doldrums- a place where thinking and laughing aren't allowed. He doesn't know how to get out, sort of like how I feel right now. But then Tock, a 'watchdog' finds and rescues him. I don't think a watchdog is going to rescue me, but it would be nice.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand...
I just feel blah. Like blah, blah. All I want to do is stay in bed and sleep all day.
Daylight savings time is coming up this weekend which means I (we, all of us) will lose an hour of sleep.
It also means that since it will be dark in the mornings, I will need even more motivation to get out of bed.
Oy vey. I don't know where the motivation is going to come from....
Since I'm sad and in the land of doldrums I need something to cheer me up, so I've compiled a list of things which will (hopefully) make me happy(ier) during this time:
You know what they say? Fake it till you make it.
This is me faking it.
1. Strawberries are on sale 5 for $5 (for a 1lb container) this week at Meijer. Fresh fruit. Yay.
2. My parents are coming on March 22nd to go with me to the doctor's appointment at the specialist. I get to see my parents. Double yay.
3. A new Glee is on this week. I think I'll watch it on Hulu though.
4. I didn't throw up (which is a very good thing) from the new medicine, but I did have problems at the other end. TMI?
5. Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, but I'm not planning on eating fatty foods.
6. I'm moving offices this week at work and I'm going to have a window seat.
7. Okay, that's all I can think of....
What is cheering you up right now? Maybe you can help me so I can gather my strength and start anew.
I'll be happy for you instead...
*This is the first time I have said the word 'doldrums' or really heard it for that matter other than when I talk about the book.
