Memorial Blue's

I don't usually experience this but ......
the blues set in this last week-ish. Emotional and stressful it felt. This weekend I finally finished my invitation orders for the family so I do feel pretty good about that but last week, I dunno..


I did take a very long nature walk with a cool friend on Monday and that helped.
Tuesday came around and it was back to work as usual, then something silly happened at work which brought my mood down and confused me. Wednesday I had planned another long nature walk after job number one, but job number two called me in. So no seriously needed nature walk for me. Wednesday was here and Hubby is having problems at work with his boss so that was a stressor and Thursday was my weight watchers meeting and I gained two pounds!!! I thought I was doing everything right... But I did start my period so perhaps that was it, you know retention... My night sweats from Peri menopause have been kicked into high gear lately and so very little sleep. Plus when I come home from job number two, I am wired and I stay up late. I am productive but when the next day comes I am not so productive. I guess I just need to get into a routine of sorts. I could probably exercise at home but nature is so much more nurturing to my soul. And creativity, well other than the prep work for the invitations for others not much. There are several art shows I want to enter but time, not sooooo much of it lately oh and brain power. If I have time I usually try to concentrate on my food preparation so I don't make a poor food choice. And who else loves naps like I do, if I had to choose between almost anything to do and a nap I would so pick the NAP-kinda realllly like them alot.
I did purchase several Tupperware containers for vegetables! And I did get more hours at work! I did get some exercise cleaning a house! "OK, True story-no one was home while I was cleaning the house, soooooo I put in Paul McCartney ("The Cherries, Album) And was dancing like no one was watching, right because that's what the song says" I was grooving away and the OUCH!!!!! I totally pulled a hip muscle, so I am miss gimp along for the rest of the week -LOL LOL! yea I am a dork. Oh, Random thought, I love "so you think you can dance", does anyone else enjoy it like my family does?
I did buy some really huge recycled cloth bags for all my shopping. I think I will make a small one myself. Normally I would have made them all myself but they were like 85 cents each and like I said they are huge. Another effort to do something else to go green. My Goals for next week are: learn how to use my video camera, make a paper doll, enter a couple of art competitions and exercise as much as I can. Happy Week to everyone, make sure you love on your family a lot and pray then pray again, oh did I mention pray...Cheers!!! Brittany

sorry you are feeling low, I must admit it happens to me more and more these days, I think it is this peri menopause thing :(, I sympathise with you on that.

Protege said...

Sorry that you have felt down; do not worry about those 2 lbs, it is quiet normal to be swinging up and down in weight.
I hope you will have a lovely Monday.;)

Yeah, life happens, I am sorry that you pulled a muscle whilst dancing like no one was watching, but the image of you dancing made me smile. I am that kinda dork as well, you should see the Oh, Mother, looks I get from my DD.

Chin up. That said it must be Monday, everyone's in the doldrums.

Hi Brittany, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving that very helpful comment. Yes, our dog can be a handful - even though we walk him plenty and he has a chew toy in every room... Oh, well, we love him! I love your blog and will be back often! I sure hope you are feeling much better by now!! Yes, this peri-menopause...such a bother. I've had nightsweats every night since I was little, so for me I am hoping they'll stop. One can hope, right?!? Hope your hip heals fast so you can dance some more... :) Silke

Well Poo! Sounds like you've had better thats for certain. I watched a great video by Louise Hay where I learned the affirmation, "Only good lies ahead of me." I'm using that to get past my grey days.

Oh, I almost forgot, the scale is evil! : )

Hi Brittany! Thanks for following my blog. I love your invitations - very creative!

Hope you're able to dance again soon - it's the best therapy for everything :)

Visiting from SITS :) I do WW too. Sometimes you just gotta roll with it. I also heard that your weight can fluctuate as much as 3 lbs each day - crazy huh? And "that time" does all kinda of craziness too. Hang in there!
