That's me!! I don't know what is going on, but my thoughts have been so scattered this week that I cannot even put together 2 thoughts for an interesting post.
It seems like I go through a funk every January. I don't know if it is the pressure of start of the new year; the cold, miserable, lousy weather; the fact that Spencer is always really busy at work in January, or what. But, in January, everything just seems more tedious and boring...and "fun" just isn't as much "fun" as it is in other months....even if it is the same "fun"(?). It also seems that in January, I start thinking about and questioning "who I am", and "what I to be", and what I need to do to get "who I am" to "who I want to be"....makes my head hurt.
Overall, I guess that this January funk that I go through probably has a positive effect on my life. I do think it is good to think about these things and re-evaluate life. Maybe it is kind of like an internal, annual review....it kind of sucks to be in the middle of it, but if you do a good job, things will be better than they were before.
So, am I the only one that goes through this every January....not really being upset about anything in particular, but kind of blah-ey? I know that I could use some self-improving....better nutrition, less procrastination, more (some) exercise, less emailing/internetting, more cleaning, more interesting reading/less reading of junk. But, all of that wears me out to think about. I think I need a project...one project....to make me feel better/useful/interested/interesting. Two January's ago, I thought I needed a project. My "project" idea was to remove the "wallpaper" from our powder room. That was a HUGE mistake of a project...the "wallpaper" turned out to be TISSUE PAPER! that the previous owner glued on the wall and then painted over!! I was totally over my January funk by the end of January, but unfortunately, the project wasn't even close to being done. Two Januarys later, after hours spent scraping, and then finally hiring someone to re-drywall the bathroom, painting the bathroom and then finally having Cathy come LAST WEEK! to patch and paint the trim, the project is finally DONE. I definitely don't need another January project like that.
Hmmmm...any thoughts or ideas??? No nice-nice thoughts....I'm fine. I want REAL thoughts and ideas to make a plan...I need a plan of action!!! Anybody got a plan of action that they want to share with me? Please!!
