I do, and I’m having one of those days today. I get that yesterday was the anniversary of my mother’s death and that always has some kind of effect on me. But, this isn’t that. I just feel crappy, like I could just sit on the couch and stare off into space all day accomplishing absolutely nothing. So, I decided I would turn on my computer, turn on Pandora and work on my blog. Writing just is good for my soul.
There is nothing wrong, but it just feels like it. I even had a crying spell, out of the blue for no apparent reason. These days just happen and there is no explainable reason for them. Ever have one of these days? Or am I the only freak here? Regardless, I am working through it because sitting around doing nothing just bugs me. So, here I am.
There’s good things going on too, that’s what makes it so weird. Hubby is at work and has decided to endeavor on a side hustle of being a handyman. I even made up a quick logo for him, printed off some business cards and have him listed on Craigslist. I wish him all the best of luck, starting a business is not easy by a long shot. And, if you are in the Bakersfield area and need a handyman or know someone who does, let me know and I’ll hook you up. Yes, shameless plug, sorry!
I also had an interview yesterday for a part-time office assistant position. It’s real close to home and the hours are great. I think it went okay, but I can count on one hand the number of job interviews I have been on in the last twenty years, so I probably am not the best judge of how it went. And I know what you’re thinking, what happened to the ‘just want to stay home’ thing? Well, I have my reasons, I’m not thrilled but for financial reasons I need to find a part-time job. I want to step back from the VA business and really work it into something that I can be passionate about, that I’m excited to do, and right now that’s not what it is. I also want to take some time to write; I’ve started my book, which is not easy because I am trying to recall things that I haven’t thought about it years. I’m trying to dig deep for it and that isn’t as easy as it sounds.
On top of all that is good going on, I can say our bills are paid and there is food in the refrigerator and a good roof over our head, with money in the bank. And that is better than a whole lot of less fortunate people all across this planet of ours. I have God and my family, church family and friends and things are as good as possible.
So, why do I have this crappy feeling? God only knows. I think the important thing is to stop and truly think about all the things you have to be grateful for. I have all my senses and I can walk. I am surrounded by love from my husband, friends, family and most importantly, God and Jesus Christ. I have my furbabies and I love them like they were my own kids. I am surrounded by good things and am most fortunate for all that I have, all that God has blessed me with. Now that I think about it, I don’t feel so crappy anymore!
Blessings to you all,
