there is something wrong with me

Feeling ‘Blah’

Let me preface this with: I’m not sick. As I write this (versus when this posts – who knows by then), I haven’t been within six feet, ten feet, 25 feet of anyone, in ages.

So it’s not that. No worries there.

But I’m tired. Tired and sad and just blah.

(Real time update: I have been near other people – my family – on a limited basis. And that was so nice. Nevertheless I have a fresh dose of blah going on.)

This morning I overslept. I got my workout (Wii run) midday because I have this list to work through, and because I have a daily goal to meet, and then I made myself do the weights in the afternoon because seriously, if I didn’t move I might have just put my head down and slept.

I considered dumping more caffeine into my system, even knowing that afternoon caffeine would mess me up tonight, but my eye has been twitchy since lunchtime and so… nope.

It’s 5:30 pm as I write this. I’m 1800 steps from my 10k target and 4300 from my actual goal for the day and I want to go to bed now.

Which I am not going to do. In fact I bet if I strip the bed, I’ll have enough whites to do a load of laundry. And that will both make me move a little, and make me stay up at least long enough to put the bed back together.

Ech. Why do I feel so blah?

I feel like I’m underwater today so I thought I’d pull an image where that was a good thing… An awesome thing… An awesome time!

Maybe I just need an adventure?

Or something.

Also IRL yesterday was Julie’s birthday and I flubbed it. Sorry sweetie! Hope it was happy! 🎂

flotsam, more or less creative


In which more coloring books have arrived and I’m self-entertaining in the evenings.

I had a couple of coloring books over the years – stress-relieving designs and whatnot. A little filler of an afternoon, every now and then.

Well, pandemic. No games and no outings and lots of boredom and stress. Not to mention not having a church bulletin to doodle upon.

So there has been coloring. Books full of it.

While some of them have gone way up in price, and none of them are rush-order essential when Amazon and Walmart are doing their darnedest to keep us in food and whatnot – there were still some fairly inexpensive ones. It turns out some of those I’ve had before but whatever, they pass the time.

So much so that I’m wearing down my pencils! Continue reading “Color”
