Feeling kind of Funky Friday

I awoke this morning in a funk.  Nothing I could put my finger on just an unease....a feeling of distress but for no reason that I think of...I hate when that happens.  So, I do what I always do...I threw on my big girl panties and got on with my life.


I went kickboxing which helped a lot....guess it is true what they say about those endorphins. 


Then I ran my errands....drugstore, gas station, post office.  Got all those nagging little items out of the way...and that helped too.


When I got home I heated myself some leftover pea soup and made myself a ham sandwich.  Eating really helped!!!  Maybe I was just hungry??


When I sat down here to work on this blog I started with 5 minute Friday.  Today's word that I spent 5 minutes writing about was Encouragement.  I thought this was pretty appropriate and it helped me to put a name to what I was feeling....I felt discouraged.  I have no reason to feel discouraged.  Life is the same today as it has been, maybe even less stressful since Mom is in sunny California for a couple of months.  But, alas, sometimes we have no control over our feelings so we just need to "Let it Go" and give it to God.



Frank has a meeting this evening so I won't be cooking dinner.  I think we will just have leftover Chicken and Dumplings.  I think, while he is at his meeting, that I will go and treat myself to a mani/pedi and maybe stop in at Joann Fabrics.  Just the thought of it has cheered me up.


I am posting in 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge because I did talk about my kickboxing today.  LOL

  1. That is one of my fears in my caregiving journey. When it is over...what will I do with myself. It sounds like you might be having one of those days. I am glad that you are going to Let it Go...and give it to God. And surely a mani/pedi can't hurt either. Thank you for being my blogging friend!

    1. Thanks Paula, kind of like empty nest syndrome I guess.
