Do you ever have those days when you should just be ecstatic about everything because you truly enjoy all the activities you partook in, but you just aren’t completely in to it? Explaining what I am trying to say is difficult but I will give it my best shot. I had a great day and yet I was just feeling like I was ready to be done with it all. I had a minor headache so that could have been what it was. This morning after my breakfast I worked on assembling my closet project with my dad. I got to use the nail gun, woohoo! The next activity was with my mom. We went to Brier Creek to go to the tent sale at Dover. I got a saddle pad and a pair of reins for super cheap! Score! But on the way to the tent sale is when I started to not feel so hot. I just couldn’t put my finger on how I was feeling. I wasn’t unhappy or anything, I just was a little glum. I think I was just feeling overwhelmed because I felt like I needed to have more of a plan, but I didn’t really want to plan because I feel like it is all I ever do haha. So I don’t know, it was just one of those days. I think I just needed some mindless couch time. My mom and I grabbed lunch at Noodles & Company before we headed home. We stopped at Food Lion on our way just to grab a few things that we needed. Then I crashed on the couch and watched the Steelers game with my parents. Once the game was over my parents went to run a few errands in Roxboro so I took that time to work on my project a little more. I touched up all the areas that needed sanded and finished again. I did a few chores in the kitchen and then had my snack. I was having mixed emotions a little about food as well. I never felt all that hungry for lunch or for my snack, but I knew I needed it so I still ate it. So I was happy that I ate it because it was what I needed, but I felt like I didn’t really want it. But it all ended up tasting good and I was able to enjoy it and then my spirits picked back up a little when my headache went away. So maybe it was all the headache… Who knows. I think I have just had too much time to think about it all and then whenever I think too much about something (no matter how much I like it) I just get sick of it. Kind of like a song that you really like, but once you listen to it a few times you still like it but you want to change the radio station. That’s the best way I can put it into words haha.
I think maybe part of the reason I was feeling like I was over thinking things and feeling like I was having to plan everything was because we didn’t do our meal planning and I didn’t plan ahead for my lunch or snack, so I felt like as soon as I was done with one meal, I had to start thinking about what I would have as a snack to fill up the rest of my bubbles. When ever I get my day planned all at once I am able to think about other things and I don’t worry about it because I know in advance that if I eat what I have planned then I will fill up all my bubbles. I don’t have to work tomorrow because my dad is doing rounds. My mom also has the day off so we are going to spend the day together and we are going to have a terrific mother daughter day! I am going to do my best to be in a pleasant mood so I can enjoy each and every activity 🙂
