Sunday blues...

I am just having one of those days today. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed or something. Or maybe it's just a post birthday party hangover, I don't know. I woke up just feeling blah. Nothingness. Do you ever feel that way? When you're beyond being angry or sad, your just empty and numb? I've been wandering around the house like a zombie, not wanting to talk to anyone. My husband gave up trying to pull me out of it about an hour ago. (Coincidentally about the time football started). It's also hard to avoid people with children. And my two nieces slept over last night for KJ's birthday. So far, I've only had to send KJ to timeout once for being a bossy diva. Otherwise they're pretty much entertaining each other.
So, I logged on because what else is there to do on Stake conference Sunday (our meeting isn't until 2:00, but we're skipping it to drive the girls home. They live about an hour south of here.)

I've been feeling a little guilty about blogging lately. Like maybe I've been spending too much time here, and not enough on the things I should be, like laundry, and feeding my children. But, nonetheless I logged on today, and I read a couple of posts, here and here, that I'm sure were written especially for me. This is why blogging is a good thing.
Because I've met some seriously amazing women through blogging, who I've come to love and admire. You are my friends, despite not having met face to face. I've also gotten to know women in my life, who otherwise, I probably wouldn't have gotten to know and love so well.
Because time and time again you say things in my comments to lift me up, or you write an truly inspiring post that helps me through the day.

Today, I'm thankful for You. My blogging friends.

Been there many a time. Hope you're feeling better soon. Balancing time is a trick we all face, I think. But cutting blogging out altogether isn't the answer. I've met some amazing friends this way.

I hate days like those, and so does my husband! ha! my MIL is a professional violinist, and plays for many popular orchestras and symphonies and does many popular recordings, basically, she is amazing, as well as her boys! they all play as well! They are all muscially talented, like you and your family!

I couldn't agree more! It has been such a blessing-- but it IS hard to find that healthy balance!

Don't feel bad-- we skipped today too. AND we went out for brunch.

Just so you know, I have all the seats by the AC in Hell reserved-- just let me know if you wanna sit by me. I'm cool like that! :oP

Great links Sher. I really enjoyed reading others thoughts. I needed the hope today. You are doing good. Even if you have one of those days.

wonder woman said...

I heart you, Sher. I was driving somewhere the other day and saw a woman who looks a lot like you driving a suburban. I looked closer and knew it wasn't you, but that would've been cool. (You weren't in southern ut county friday, right? =D)

I obviously have days like yours. Just blah....don't want to do anything or talk to anyone.....whatever. Sometimes you just need a kick in the pants. Or a really good song.

Just glad I was able to help. xoxo

I'm glad you blog because it has been a pleasure to know you. I hope you're upcoming days are better than today. I have the blah-days now and again, too. The great things is that there are also up days. I hope your Up days far outnumber your down in the dumps days.

I love it Sher- you just say it how it is! And I think everyone that reads your blog appreciates your honesty. Hope you fell better today!

NICHOLS said...

I hope you FEEL better- I don't want you to fall today by any means- HA HA! I can spell!

Andrea said...

You are lucky that you skipped. I wish we did! We seriously got NOTHING out of it. I spent half my time outside with little Jay!

sometimes, when you do feel guilty about blogging. It means you may be blogging a bit too much.

Balance in all things. A few weeks ago, I thought I needed to take a blogcation. But, I set tasks and goals to do and blogging was the reward once those tasks were done.

Then I said I could only blog once everyone in the house was asleep. But, I am seriously thinking about taking advantage of the new computer system where you can set perameters of how long someone can be on the computer. it is a parent control. I need someone to parent control my computer time. I am addicted. I have that personality.
I am waiting for the addiction to wear off. It might.
but so far the reward of blogging time has worked. and doing the tasks first have worked for me.
