Monday, trying but failing

Well I am still learning how to use this new mess.  Right now I have pictures but it is underlining everything and I can't seem to get that to stop.  It is like the beast has a mind of its own.

Okay maybe that is better.  Just give me grace on this.  I took this picture on Friday to prove I was still okay, but I really am not. How can I tell?  Well because I am getting nothing done.  I wanted to get outside and I needed to be in the sun and I had every opportunity to do so, but went in and took naps during the afternoon and wasted the time.  I was just so tired.  I could not keep my eyes open.  Although I am sleeping fine.  So that tells me I am not okay.

I am not getting anything really done in the shop either.  It is like I am frozen and I have no excuse.

I was able to complete my third chart of the year so obviously I did some things, I am just not up to snuff. I am hoping this week that the old Kim will jump back into her body.

Even though it is not warm and sunshiny today, I am going to go and change into my outdoor clothes and weed at least one flower bed before I do any sewing.  I am hoping the physical activity will activate what ever in my brain is causing me to be so, so..... I don't know.

Am I the only one who is doing this?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. I am having a hard time getting myself to do even the simplest things around here. I just wanted to keep sleeping this morning, but got up and started getting our dinner (we have early dinner always)As I worked along it was like trudging through sticky mud with fog all around. And then I was having one of those kitchen days that I am clumsy and drop everything. I thought well I will bathe and do my hair and makeup and that will get me going. It didn't. It just made me exhausted instead. I am not supposed to drink caffeine according to doctor. But I could sure use some. Outside is totally unappealing today. It is cold and very cloudy and someone nearby, just out of my view is running some type of loud equipment. After dinner I think I shall watch a very vintage movie and most likely fall asleep and miss the end of it. For me, I think things will be better when we have some more sunshine.

    I hope sunnier times are ahead for both of us.

    Take care.

  2. Like Susie, I need sun. It is cold, gray, and yucky here. Well, it is 67F but it is still chilly. I am okay as far as feeling well and not napping, just have horrible chest pain. But, the days I sleep and then need a nap or naps, I finally get the message that I am getting ill instead of being lazy. The electricity went off for a bit today, but it has made me behind. I need sunshine, too.

  3. You are not the only one who is not getting anything done. I think we are all reeling from this virus and the impact it is having on all of us, one way or another.

  4. Fresh air and sunshine help me. Music - loud music is always a booster as well. Turn off the news!!!!!! Just get up and move sweety.

  5. I walk around like a zombie all day. Start something, forget what I was doing and have to refocus. Give yourself a break. All of us are feeling it. I am sure now no one is in a rush for their sewed items and that you will have plenty of time to finish them. I am doing some music therapy right now listening to my favorite playlists.

    1. You are right. I don't know why I feel I have to be superwoman.

  6. I'm with you. I'm also forcing the kids outside 3x/day, rain or shine. They drive me bonkers if they are trapped without any physical activity, so it's a good reminder for me as well.

    1. Put down the wooden spoon now! That is what my mom used to spank us with:)

  7. I'm working, so need to be "on" for that, but really, I want to sleep. My daughter, who misses her friends so much, both the ones here and at college, keeps me a bit more energized as she wants the company.

    1. I can imagine the stress you are under. You can't even shut down like the rest of us.

  8. First... the nap should have been outside in the sun which is something I do even in the winter as long as it's not freezing. Dreary day after Dreary day triggers my S.A.D. which cycles in to the fibro and CFS ...which my lovely specialist pointed out to me that I don't mention that when we had our "appt" over the computer.

    Since I went on heal n sooth(Livingwell) I have been a lot better than I was.. Not great dancing around but able to not crash 2-3 times a day and sleep 2-3 hrs each time. I went to listing what I want done in week instead of each day. If I hold to it all the spring cleaning will be done by end of May without the help of Daughter 4 who usually does my deep cleaning.

  9. Not the only one. If I didn't have the 3 kids to do school work with and keep on task then I don't know that I would get anything done.

    1. You know that scene in overboard where Goldie Hahn sits in a barrel of water and goes blub, blub, blub.....

  10. OK if you are not getting anything done I fear the apocalypse is on us! In a complete reversal I tackled the world's messiest laundry room and it is almost finished. I still have to organize the sewing station and my canning jars and then it is done!

    1. I am so jealous, I think I might move for the second day in a row.

  11. It's interesting you should say that, I did some stuff in the greenhouse and then went to bed in the afternoon! Feeling more normal this morning and will try to get on with things after giving myself a good talking to about having to adjust to changed circumstances and what's really important in life.
    We'll see how today goes. We are in semi 'lockdown' here in the UK.
    You do look very good in your photo!
    J.P. in the UK

    1. I feel bad about your lock down but I fear we are in for the same here. Take care. I would like to say follow my example but I can't :)

  12. (((((HUGS)))) Kim...I think there are many of us feeling exactly like you are. The stress of all of this is taking a huge toll on everyone I know and love, even the ones who pretend that they are fine. ;) I was Skyping with my parents today and I can see the stress on my mother as well. My dad continues to joke his way through life...that is how he was always coped with things and maybe he holds the secret to getting through all this. For the record, I'm not ok either,
