Have you ever woke up with the blahs? It is not depression just a malaise of not even trying to figure out where you stand or what you are going to do with the day? I mean I know I have to teach and clean the bank, but no one will make me get anything done around the house, or the shop, or the finances. I can just blah...(my head sinks to the computer).
Should I put on some music? No I have to listen to music when I get to the studio. Should I set a timer? This sometimes gets me going, but that would mean I have to get up and go upstairs, I think that is more than I can handle right now. :) ( head sinking again)
I have been having trouble sleeping and have not been getting to bed before 2 or 3 in the morning. Then I have to be up by 7:30 or 8 and that is just not enough sleep for me. This has been going on for about 5 days and that could be contributing to the blahs. I know my body well enough to realize that eventually I will kick back into a normal rhythm. I need to be asleep by midnight at the latest to feel my best. I am sure that getting used to teaching and having my evenings taken up has caused this time flux. I come home and still think I have several hours to putz and I don't.
Yesterday, I cleaned the family room and the shop and did several loads of laundry. Just need to dry the last load and put it away. I thawed out a lb of burger, and some chicken breasts and bacon. Hubby had blt's for dinner last night and lunch today, so I do need to figure out what to do with that thawed meat. Trying so hard to care right now... (pause to care....) sorry just can't make it happen.
It actually got down to 85 yesterday and today it is supposed to be in the 70's. That should make me have all kinds of energy. I actually just went and put on a light jacket. This last two weeks of extremely hot weather has everyone in town a little put off.
So now that I don't have the excuse it is just too hot, I had better get my butt in gear. I will make a list and set my timer upstairs and get busy. Here goes!
In order of importance:
13. Make a bean hot dish with burger and figure out what to do with chicken
17. sew a little or a lot! Blue means it was done by 1:30
19. clean bank
20. get to bed by 11:00 if possible!
Now this looks like a formidable list but many of these things will only take a few minutes. I will set my timer for 15 minute increments and see how far I get. I will come back and update you with times because I know all of you are just waiting and checking my blog to see what I get done because you have nothing else to do, am I right ?:)
Pretty pathetic when I have to have imaginary people checking my progress to stay motivated.
What kind of things do you guys do to fight the blahs and stay motivated?
Have a great and productive day!
