So I thought about doing a Personal Goals post today like I typically do toward the beginning of the month, but I'm just not feeling it. In fact, I'm not feeling much of anything lately. And I would have just put a big FAILED on all of my goals for March.
So instead, I thought I'd just talk to you for a little bit (whoever you readers might be). I've been a little down in the dumps lately. And I know I really have no reason to be. I have a wonderful life. A very handsome and loving husband. A fantastic job. A great home. A cute furchild. Plenty of wonderful friends. And I'm saved by the Grace of a risen Savior! What more could I want?
Nicholas passed away suddenly a few weeks ago, and I spent a week in Georgia, I've just been thrown off of all my goals. And I hate that. I feel like I'm in a rut in so many areas of my life.
Pearson has been staying late at the lab so often that sometimes I forget I have a husband. Ok, that's an exaggeration. But he did stay in the lab overnight twice last week. And he slept all day the day in between when he was home. These days it is typical for him to get home around nine or ten (and that includes the weekends). The only way he gets home any earlier is if he knows we have something planned that night and therefore gets to work by 5:30 am so he can be sure to be home in time.
And have I told you that we only have one car right now? Pearson's 1995 corolla finally bit the dust and we're trying to save up to buy another decent car so we don't have another car payment to pay. That means that I am quite literally stuck at home all day every day while he takes our Rogue to work. I'm tired of it. I am tired of the cold. I just want it to be spring already and stay that way.
So anyway, this is why I haven't published anything on the blog in a week and the last thing I published was a Thankful Thursday that I had to publish because I host the link up.
And I'm sorry if I sound like a Debby Downer or sound ungrateful. I'm really not. I know how blessed I am. And I'm still trying not to take those things for granted. It's just life gets a little tiresome sometimes and I needed to get these things off my chest. And I know I don't really owe any of you an explanation, but I felt like I needed to give you one.
And you wanna hear something ironic? I wrote a post very similar to this one exactly a year ago! So I guess the end of March/beginning of April is typically a trying time for me. Who knew? lol I think that means that the weather has a lot to do with it.
Anyway, I've decided that starting next week, I am going to get back on track with all my personal goals. I may modify them a bit. Like reading the bible in a year... I might be so far behind that catching up is impossible but we'll see. And as far as blogging, I'm not gonna stress about getting tons of posts out. I will blog when it comes to me and not worry when it doesn't. How does that sound? And don't worry, I'm still doing the Marriage & Relationship Goals link up on Monday with Amberly so be sure to come back for that!
Thanks for reading and putting up with me lately. I love you all!
