Ever had one of "those" days?
Bad day, no good reason. Just sad and I don't know why. Feeling, unmotivated, lethargic and a lot like I'm trying to walk to Baskin Robbin's on a treadmill. Pondering the purpose of my existence and drawing a ___________. Yeah. Blank.
So, I've spent the better part of my day reading random blogs.
Writing a blog far too depressing to post, so I deleted it.
Sitting in front of the heater.
Taking a nap.
Sitting in front of the heater again.
Taking another nap.
Trying to muster the motivation, the thought, the will, to do, well, just about ANYTHING.
(All the thought mustering happened while sitting in front of the heater of course.)
SO I did what any 21st century depressed homemaker would do, I Googled "How to cheer yourself up." Happily I didn't even have to finished the sentence before the little Google bar filled it in for me, and the thought of that search being common enough to fill in the blank for me, sort of cheered me up and helped me feel not so alone, or stupid for feeling, well....stupid.
I have decided to do 7 things in the next 3 hours to cheer myself. Those numbers feel right to me at any rate. These art the 7 things I'm going to do. Hopefully, I'll be feeling back to my chipper" let's change the world, clean our house, sing a song, play with the kiddos and offer life changing advice to people I love" in no time!
7-Take a shower while listening to "What do the simple folks do" from Camelot. I will probably also listen to "Lusty month of May" because it is May after all.
6-put a ribbon in my hair
5-wear something cute with a pair of white pants
4-light a candle during dinner with my husband
3-Drive to the store and buy flowers for the table with grocery money. Yeah. I'm gonna do it.
2-Stand outside and breathe fresh air for 1 minute
1-Drink a glass of water
Okay...there's my plan. I'll get back to you on how well it worked!
In the meantime send me a note. Let me know what you do to cheer yourself up when you are down.
