Blah Monday!

I have the "blahs" today. Can't seem to wake up, didn't sleep well last night. I have PMS. I am working on a pattern that, no matter what yarn I have chosen (four thus far) and which hook (4 thus far), I can't get it to look right. It's not a gauge thing is a wonky thing. Ugh.....I have to put it aside for a while.

This weekend was blah.....The temps were in the nineties with, what I later found out, 88% relative humidity. It was thick and oppressive out. I have A/C, but we were in and out and I felt icky all day. Saturday, we did nothing but hang out here. Yesterday, I cleaned, really cleaned the living room and put down the new area rug. It looks great. I started on the playroom, but Elena kept wanting to help and didn't want to get rid of this or that, so I scratched it til I can do it without her around. I called my mother about watching Elena for a couple hours over the weekend so I could clean out the playroom, she never got back to me. Then today she emails me and tells me to drop her off at her job and she will take Elena out to dinner with her tonight. Sounded great until she added, perhaps you can get the playroom cleaned. Well, honestly, I wasn't planning on it on such short notice, you know how that is, plus then I started thinking how then she would take her one weekend day. So I asked her if she could still watch Elena one weekend day (she gets three day weekends in the summer). She wrote back a nasty email that apparently "she never does anything right", and I guess, I don't either.

Anyway, yesterday was stinking hot and humid and we had to get Elena a new pair of glasses. The mall was packed and we parked what seemed like ten miles away and trudged back and forth twice and then went to a different mall to get new sheets and a new bathing suit for Elena. I need one for the cruise for her the end of September and the suits will be gone by then. Anyway, we ended up parking far away again and then the A/C in the mall wasn't working and it was unbelievably hot. We got home and planned to swim and then the thunder came. No rain, just thunder and lightening. Then I got sick. Sick as all get out. Sick all night. I think it was the combination of the heat, PMS (severe this round) and the methotrexate injection Saturday, I was just whooped.

I still feel whooped this AM. Plus last night, instead of going to bed, I was on the computer and my husband feels I am avoiding him now. Plus, he also feels I am going into a "shell" and just going on the computer instead of talking to people and doing things. He may be right. I haven't returned my girlfriends 5th phone call in two weeks. I just get funny that way and kinda want to be left on my own. Anyway, that was a small argument and today I still feel blah, drained, my stomach still hurts and I am out of it. I can't concentrate on anything crochet and I started reading a book I wanted to read (To the Power of Three-Laura Lippman) and can't get into it. I have the newest John Sandford here, as well as Michael Connelly (all library books and the Lippman one is past due) and I can't get a groove with anything. The playroom has me overwhelmed because I don't have anywhere to put the stuff I move. I want to arrange my stash because my hubby is complaining about his side of the bedroom having totes and boxes everywhere, like a minefield and again, I don't know where to put it all. This house has only one closet downstairs.

Anyway, sorry to be such a downer, I feel like such a wet rag today......tomorrow will be better....

Sorry you feel yucky! Hang in there girlfriend. The heat doesn't help. Makes you tired and contributes to a junkie mood.

Faith said...

Aw Deneen - I'm sorry things are so blah! I hate the heat, it really screws with ya. Hang in there!

Jewels said...

Yes, tomorrow is always better. Today is a gift too, it's just sometimes the wrapping is ripped all to crap and doesn't appear that way. I say pick a favorite pattern and crochet the day away, remember-yarn never talks back like people!! Smiles to you girl. :)

Jessica said...

You are more than entitled to have a crappy day, so no apologies needed. Hope you're feeling less lousy soon.

Amanda said...

I think crappy days are going around again. Good day for a nap. Hope you're feeling like yourself soon. Take care!!

Kari said...

Kimberly said...

Hope that things start looking up for you *hugs* The heat is always a downer!

Trish said...

HUGS...I'm right there with you. I could have written your post just changed the details. Why do we get that way. BLAH BLAH BLAH..Hang in there. It always seems to get sunnier at some point. Oh, and the humidity is just DISGUSTING!!!!

Marvie said...

I'm feelin' ya with the PMS deal lol. I've been pure evil lately. Hope the heat breaks for you soon, humidity blows. It was nasty like that here yesterday too, just so muggy you couldn't breathe.

{{hugs}} here's hoping you feel better soon!

Sorry about your day! I wish I could help with your reorganising, I like doing things like that...Anyway, imagine yourself helped!!!

Ro said...

Awww, D. *hugs* I'm sorry yesterday sucked. It sounds to me like you clearly overdid it and now you just need some time to recoup, girl! Don't be so hard on yourself!

Your mother, my mother, Lori's mother, and a few other friend's mothers that I know of really need to be on a reality show where we ship them off and make them live with EACH OTHER for awhile! Then see how they'd like it!

Oh. I think I may have to do a whole blog entry on that idea.

In the meantime...make a cup of tea, call your friend, and just let her do the talking. I know all about going into "turtle mode" and hiding out, I have to do it every so often when everything gets overwhelming. You'll poke your head back out, you just want to be sure that someone isn't waiting with a club to smack you first!

********hugs********
love ya
Ro
