Sometimes my life is so formulaic I’m almost embarrassed. I get stressed about money during Christmas and then once it’s over I experience the post-Christmas blues where you’re just depressed that you spent all of that time/money/energy and now you’re expected to go back to your normal life with no extra vacation days or presents to open.
So, yeah. I’m in that post-Christmas funk.
And sometimes there’s just the things going on in my life that throw me in a funk that I just can’t write about due to the fact that I would like the people in my life who I love to keep talking to me. And when I can’t blog about something that gets me down? It’s like I just can’t MOVE PAST it. I have come to depend on this blog for my therapy and when I can’t unload here on something that’s tugging at my heart, I have no idea how to cope with that thing in my life. How do you people without a blog cope with things in your life that are getting you down? I DON’T KNOW HOW.
And it’s cold. And my heat in my van is broken some days. (But not other days!) We are already down to 3 drivers and 2 cars over the break and now we’re down to 3 drivers and 1 car WITH dependable heat and one car WITHOUT dependable heat and you can imagine how much it sucks to be the person drawing the cold/short start that day.
So…post-Christmas slump, personal issues I can’t process by blogging, and a cold damn van…these are the things that have me in a funk this morning.
SO! I’m going to try my best to be proactive about my slump. I’m about to go for a short’ish run (COLD) and give me a good start to the day. I’m going to sit down and organize my life/day/work with some quality Bullet Journaling time (always perks me up) and I’m going to throw away all of the junk food in this house that has not been eaten. Because everyone knows how I’ve been coping with my slump, right? EATING ALL OF THE THINGS. And that does NOT help in the slightest.
What about you? How long do the Post-Christmas Gray Days linger in your life? And did you have 14 different desserts yesterday? Because I feel like I should earn some sort of Guiness Book Of World Records achievement for the 14 I ate yesterday.
