The winter blahs are settling in here and my body has begun its annual February Fibro Meltdown a little early. We’ve had a few sunny days sprinkled in here and there but I haven’t felt well enough to get out to enjoy them and I’m beginning to get a little stir crazy. Or, maybe just plain old crazy. I’m not sure.
I was able to get out for a little while on Sunday. Don and I took Smarty to the Centennial Trail again. This time we parked in Machias (a tiny “town” five miles north of Snohomish). Apparently, everyone was feeling the same need to get out because the trail was very busy.
Everything is so disappointingly ugly right now though. I lugged my camera for two miles and found nothing to take pictures of. The snowy Cascades are just a tease, looking breathtaking with the naked eye but lousy through a lens.
So, I guess I shouldn’t complain about the upcoming week of rain and gloomy, cloudy skies because I’m not missing anything outside.
Maybe answering Cee’s Share Your World questions will get me out of my funk. Let me give it a try.
What one thing are you really glad you did yesterday? I’m glad I drank lots of water. I feel like I’m detoxing something out of my system and yesterday the more water I drank, the better I felt. I feel much better today although I’m still randomly sweating.
Are you generally focused on today or tomorrow? I am pretty good at focusing on today unless there’s something I dread looming ahead. I have a tendency to let one appointment ruin my whole week. I’m getting better about it but I still wallow in dread too much.
Would you want a guardian angel/mentor? What would they tell you right now? I welcome my guardian angels/mentors, although I probably don’t listen to them much. I don’t listen to anyone. I’m very much a I’ll-figure-it-out-on-my-own kind of person. My guardian angel/mentor is probably saying, “quit being so damn stubborn!” 🙂
Would you rather live in a cave house or a dome house made out of glass? Gosh, this question makes me grateful for a house with both walls and windows! The dome house would drive me crazy in the summer when the sun beats down for 16 hours every day and I think I would get depressed living underground. I guess I would take the dome house if it were in a beautiful place and I could have some good light-blocking curtains.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week I was grateful for some time with my friend Krista. We sat at Starbucks and chatted for three hours. The time just flew by! This week I’m looking forward to my mom coming down to visit, if she makes it. She, too, has been feeling pretty awful and has had to postpone her plans to come down every week since the first of the year.
Well, that did it. I feel better now. It’s weird how writing can do that. 🙂
