Just Normal Woman Days
Today I started the day feeling grumpy. I had coffee and met some friends and swung by the library to return a book. My mood improved, and I went to cleaning the four pair of dirty socks out of the van, putting up pajamas left on the floor, hanging towels left on the floor, cleaning the paper left scattered, and dealing with a dirty refrigerator and four cabinets. My mood started to drop after about three hours of that, which is probably normal, given all. I ate lunch and decided to cook some peanut butter cornflake cookies for the kids. The cornflakes were more stale than I thought and the syrup cooked too long. They flopped. So, scraping down that bowl and measuring cups of peanut butter to try again later.
I listened to Motown just for the fun of it, which helped. Aretha Franklin can make anybody feel like going to town.
When I realized the mix threw up “Ghostbusters” and that I’d listened to the whole thing without shutting it off, I realized there was something desperately wrong with me and I shut down the music for a while. Apparently copyrights will only let you skip so many songs an hour and after that point, I used up my limit in about the next ten minutes.
I went onto some things I enjoy. Cardmaking…also things I wanted to do for others hurting this week. I enjoyed getting caught up in all these things to some extent, but just the STEPS required to do EVERYTHING is wearing me out lately. I’m ready for some simplicity. I can’t wait to get things more ordered so that the feeling can work it’s way back into my life!
I feel like crying when there is no reason to and sleeping when I should be rested today. Yup, some days it’s tough being a woman! (From the Beth Moore Esther study we finished last night.)
