Ready to open the windows and feel the breeze...

It'd be nice if you could put a security system around your brain, keeping the bad guys out. Unfortunately, like a real security system on a home, bad guys still know how to get in...

I'm not depressed. REALLY. I'm not. At least, not to the point of needing to worry about me. Even though that sentence sounds as such. I am just feeling as though I'm in limbo... Not moving forward. For instance: I really want to go grocery shopping. However, the van is on E, and I have to fill it. In order to do so, I need to get some cash from the bank. And there is the problem. That extra step? That final teeny stop? Is impossible. I have been driving on E for 3 days now. Not doing any errands cuz I absolutely loathe the idea of going to the bank and then the gas station and then, finally, the store. So, instead? Instead, I wait for Patrick to call on his way home, and see if we need anything and then I give him a list....

Pathetic.

Waiting for the sun.

I've been worried about you. I hope things are all right. Midwest winters take their toll, don't they? I have been feeling... "paralyzed" is how I would describe it. I just can't seem to get anything done. I hope the sun shines and things warm up soon. Take care of yourself.

Do they have pay at the pump there? You can use your debit card there and skip the bank step. I love it and would always be on E without it!

And I agree - spring can NOT come soon enough!!

Sorry you're a little blue. I know the feeling.

I know the feeling of a midwinter slump well. I hope some serious sunshine makes it your way soon. I have had similar days before. Sometimes you need a kick in the butt to break out of it...any way you could get out of the house by yourself tonight and go for a coffee or something? Hubs often does that for me when he notices me slumping.

Totally Agree! Spring WHERE ARE YOU???

Kristi said...

Not pathetic at all. I can't stand multiple-stop errands while toting my daughter along for the ride. It does take SO much effort. I hope you're feeling better soon, and that you get some early spring weather.

I hear you. I am so done with winter. I keep opening the windows to let in a little fresh air, even if it is cold.
I went for a walk yesterday and felt so much better, at least while I was out.

Kathryn said...

I feel your depression. Seriously! Every snowflake that falls now feels like another nail in my coffin. Ugh. It is the winter that NEVER ends!!!!!
ACK!
I finally got the boys out of the house today and it helped. We went to the library and had a blast. We needed it.
Hope warm weather finds you soon!

So with you Tracey - just hanging on and waiting for some light - for both of us...

Kami said...

I am with you Tracey, it's the winter weather coupled with regular life stress. Makes for grouchy times and no ambition.

Oh and I hope we can still be friends because a 2 year old swearing? NOT funny to me :-)

Kami said...

I wanted to like it, I really did. But then this little girl, the same age as my baby, started saying A-hole and other stuff....

All I can think about is that little girl....being taught to swear for the entertainment of adults....

I know, I know....lighten up right! Humour is a very individual thing.

Agree to disagree is the best option. Take care!

Natalia said...

(((((HUGS)))))) I know exactly what you mean.

TAG you are it!

Lis Garrett said...

OMG!! I'm exactly the same way - I let the van get on empty because I hate having to take all the extra steps just to do something. I TOTALLY blame it on the weather. I'm never like this when it's warm and sunny. Hang in there!

PS - My poor husband usually has to stop at the store every night after work!

i actually left the house two days in a row and it still has not helped. I'm not blue...black! This stinkin winter just keeps going so I totally know how you feel. But, its not just me who won't leave the house...I try and AJ just won't go. I'm basking the the sunlight of my big window right now and dreaming of Hawaii and Pina Coladas.

Wanna come?

Hi,

You know what? I'm glad to hear someone else hates going to the bank and the gas station as much as I do! Guess that makes us both pathetic! Glad to have some company! :O)

I heard we are actually supposed to get some days in the upper 40's to 50 degrees next week, and sun!! Hang in there!

Not pathetic. I totally relate. Do you think you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder? I only ask because I know I really do. I have a sun lamp and everything and I'm like a different person in the winter. But the weather is changing already and I think we'll make it. Hang in there. And I know you probably don't want to hear this, because I know I hate it when my husband says it to me, but sometimes forcing yourself to go ahead and get out of the house really does make you feel better. I know sometimes it's so hard to do that though, especially when there is that "extra step."

And don't worry about the comment thing. I know it has something to do with your blog not allowing anonymous comments and my blogger blog becoming inactive. I'll just comment this way and you'll know it's me.

I remember being a little blue in the winter time when I lived in the Chicago area...but as soon as Spring came I bounced right back. Hope the same for you!!! I really enjoyed your blog! I am new at blogging but I would love to hear from you. My site is iveovercookedmyfamily.com! I'll keep you in my prayers!
