I have been in a rut for a few days now. The only solution I can gather is the gloomy weather here in WI. It had rained all weekend, and I can't remember the last morning I opened my blinds to a warm sun beaming in. Needing to keep all the lights on while in the house is just depressing. I love natural sunlight shining in! My husband doesn't appreciate my desire for light, he practically follows me around the house flipping all the lights off behind me.
Can this be the reason for my gloominess? I felt ZERO energy since Friday morning and I getting tired of it. Paul and I have really cut the spending as of late. We should have capped it MORE awhile back. We are so thankful for Paul's raise this past October, but due to the Christmas holiday - we have yet to feel the up swing of the increased wages. We spend 3/4 of 2009 at a decreased salary by 9%. When you live off of 1 income - that is huge! So we praise God for filling our needs when he knew we needed them. Because of the spending cut - I am afraid to leave the house. I am afraid that my car will naturally take me to the parking lot of Hobby Lobby, or Kohls. The only thing we have been purchasing lately is groceries, gas and diapers. And leaving the house for a trip to the grocery store isn't that glamorous. :)
I haven't done much around the house besides the obvious tidying. The energy and ambition just isn't there. What motivates you to get up and do things that need to be done.... even though you can't muster up the energy? I know this isn't any form of depression - I certainly haven't felt this low in a long time - but it's nothing that I worried about longterm. I am laughing and joking with my husband and friends... I just have a huge case of the lazies! I have wonderful things to be excited for (more on that later) and yet I can't get physically psyched!
How do you ladies do it?
