feeling a bit low
posted by soe 1:40 am

I know it’s been a few days since I last wrote, but that’s because I was busy having a lovely weekend up in Connecticut. I ate lots of good food; had quality visiting time with the folks, Gramma, and Karen; and came home with pretty new shirts (thanks Mum!), (thin) socks, and shoes.

And, now, in the wake of both a holiday and a smidgen of a vacation, I’m feeling a bit low. Okay, credit that, if you will, to a lack of sleep or to its being that time of the month, or, even, to the fact that I need desperately to completely overhaul my apartment before Sunday afternoon. Nonetheless, I spent this evening curled up on the couch watching tv. Granted, I watch tv every Monday, but this week my knitting sat untouched in my bag in front of me for the whole night, even though I’m a mere 20 rows away from finishing Mystery Project #1. (Yay!)

I’m hoping tomorrow is a more productive day in all aspects. It would be great to get to party-time on Sunday without having our guests have to help us prep the food or carry the tree into the house.

Sometimes you just need a little downtime. Good luck with preparations!

Awww, I hope you feel more nright and cheery soon. I always get a bit down myself after visiting my family – I miss them! And I found it worse this time around thanks to the cold that still won’t quite leave – you were recently sick too, which could be adding to it. Those other things are certainly contributers too.

Speaking on behalf of the guests, we won’t mind helping out on Sunday.

But I do hope you’re feeling better soon, though I don’t think it’s unusual to have this kind of holiday hangover. It’s hard (and tiring and dispiriting) to get back to the daily grind after a fun weekend.

I hope you feel better soon. The blues has hit pretty badly here…our weather has been mostly gray and mostly chilly and I miss the sun! Hopefully some down time and your party will help you feel right again.
