Ever have one of those days where you just can’t make yourself do anything?
Like today. (This is past me, so by today, I actually mean yesterday, because you’ll be reading this in the future.) I have a ton of things I should be doing, but I can’t seem to make myself do any of them. Everything seems to take more energy than I have. And not physical energy, but mental energy.
Maybe I just need a nap? I’m not really tired, though. Maybe I’m just bored. Which seems crazy, because I have a LOT of things to do. None of them have to get done, though, which is the real issue. The only one putting deadlines on me is me, and though I do my best work under deadlines, it’s clearly not ones I set for myself. Those deadlines I just ignore. Because, honestly, what happens if I don’t?
Nothing. That’s what happens. Nothing.
Like what I’m doing now.
Although I guess I’m not doing nothing. I got up today. Made my bed. Showered, dressed, did the dishes. Which probably doesn’t sound like a lot, but some days, I can’t even motivate myself to do those things. I haven’t gone into work this week, which I think is part of the issue. Also, my husband is working a big storm right now, so he’s gone, which means I have to cook.
I hate cooking. I’m not good at it, and I don’t enjoy it. I mean, I’m not a terrible cook, and I know my way around the kitchen, but I don’t like doing it. My husband loves to cook, so that’s his job when he’s home.
I’m trying to keep myself occupied, but today has been a struggle. I’m working on a new project, which I hope to show you in a later post. Today, though, I think I’m going to call it quits and go snuggle under my weighted blanket. I love that thing. Seriously, if you’ve been thinking about it – get one. Best purchase of the year so far.
