Monday Begins Another Groundhog Week

Another week of Groundhog Day yawns before us here.  Still isolated and at home without much to do.  How are you dealing with this?  Are you out and about yet?  Or are you at home still?  If it weren’t for the outside patio, I think I’d be crazy, but at least I can get out of my house for some quiet alone time when the weather’s decent.

The kids are finishing their last week of college and exams which is good.  Now it’s crunch time and they’re stressed, so I am trying to be kinder than usual.  Because once college is officially finished for the semester, we are going on cleaning detail to revamp their rooms and the house.  At least that’s my projected plan for next week.  I need to do it as well so I figure we’ll all do it as a family.

I don’t know where the days go to anymore.  I turn around and it’s another Monday and yet, I can’t tell you what I’ve been doing the last week.  I have little to ‘show’ for my weeks at home.  I’ve been feeling off lately.  A little dizzy, a little nauseous at times and I have been sleeping in later in the mornings which is unlike me.  Then there’s the issue with technology that I’ve been having problems with a lot lately.  I thought it was just my energy, but I think it’s more than that because the kids have had problems too.  Luckily their professors have been understanding and have extended a few deadlines due to the inconsistency of our internet service.  It comes and goes at will.

I keep telling myself I need to diet and exercise more, but the willpower hasn’t been there for me.  I’m tired these days.  I’m even a little woeful if I’m being honest.  It’s hard dealing with the kids here all the time and not feeling productive.  Sure, I could Spring Clean the house, but I don’t have the energy.  I’m feeling blah.

How are you?

    Well, I feel blah about cleaning but then I always feel blah about cleaning, pandemic or not. I have been having fun in my studio doing crafts though. I could live there if I could make a living from it!

    You need hugs Janie and to hear it from someone, and from yourself that you don’t need to have anything to ‘show’…just getting up or brushing your teeth is enough to show in a day. Any day you achieve even more than that is an awesome day! It’s ok to be tired. I know, I have to tell myself that…daily, for 20 years now but we don’t give up, we are bigger than a bad day or tiredness or lockdown! Thinking of you. Big warm Irish hugs! Xx

    Week nine—same old, same old. Like many, my mood can go from contentment to frustration. I’m almost always a positive person, and I refuse to dwell on negative thoughts. I broke out the old P90X videos from about a decade ago because I’ve worked too damn hard to start giving pounds back.

      Good for you Pete! :). I love that you’re exercising. I remember hearing a lot of good reviews about the P90X program. Let me know how it goes! :). Keep smiling!

    I try to allow for the blah and embrace the spirts of energy that appear.
    It’s funny to have so much time.
    Not what I imagined.

  5. Well I am having some of those issues too. I had to force myself to do the cleaning, I pick a project and no matter the time of day I do it. Constantly home with the baby, my online classes do come with their individual challenges. But 🤷🏽‍♀️what to do, keep pushing, keep pressing
