I don't have my kids this weekend. Usually keeping busy and getting stuff accomplished while they're not here feels good.

Just nothing is working for my mood. I'm just down. Got an 82 on my midterm which I thought I aced (I know, it's not BAD, but still disappointed). Can't muster the energy to do this weeks assignment for class.

Primed my bedroom which needed to be done. But I've just got no joy about anything.

Feeling lonely, yet have no desire to reach out to friends. Hence the catch-22

Hate this. Hate when I feel like I'm wishing the weekend away.

Can you get out for a walk today? Head to a cafe/bookstore to hang out and people watch while working on the assignment?

Go for a drive in the country with the tunes cranked up?

Sometimes just getting out of the house can do wonders.

I'm going to force myself to go to Lowe's and then I need to mow the front yard. Usually sunshine and exercise works.

Girl, I hear ya. I'm right there with you today. Hugs!!

I have to say FaithFool is right, sometimes just getting outside and getting fresh air can do wonders for the spirit. It's hard to muster the energy to do that at times but once you do, you feel so much better

I'm also writing again, sometimes that is a good therapy too and gets all that 'gunk' out of your head, ya know? So maybe try that?

Maybe treat yourself to something that will make you feel good about yourself, like a mani/pedi? Or maybe there are fall like festivals in your area and you can go to a pumpkin patch?

Hang in there, you're not alone!
