A case of the Sundays

December 13, 2009 · 0 comments

Even though I don’t work 9-5 and have to go into the office on Mondays, Sunday nights are still Sunday nights before Monday mornings, and I find that if I can stay IN the weekend, it’s not a big deal, but the moment I realize the weekend is over and things are about to get crazy again, I get a case of the Sundays.

Today was a kind of rough day for me and I don’t really know why.  Of course there are the usual work-related money things weighing on me heavily, which of course results in home money things weighing on me and Mike, which of course weighs even heavier because Christmas is rapidly approaching and I LOVE to buy and give presents, which of course is difficult with money issues – not impossible, just harder and I have to be more creative.

Plus the boys have been horrible listeners for me lately and they are driving me nuts.  They push and push and push until I finally snap at them and then they apologize and then I feel guilty…I don’t know if it’s the upcoming holiday break, Christmas coming, or just the cold weather and lack of outside time that is causing them to be crazy, but it’s a struggle in the morning AND in the evening at bedtime.  Perhaps tomorrow will be a better day – I’m going to try to adjust my attitude and maybe that will help as well.

Plus my leg has been bothering me today – very twingey, a little sore and slightly swollen feeling all day.  I have my last PT appointment tomorrow, during which I am hoping to get a compression stocking that actually fits and stays up.  I tried to do some exercise yesterday – did 20 minutes of Wii Fit before I felt like I was overdoing it without my stocking on; plus we walked all over the place for a couple hours, then did some baking, so I’m sure it’s just that.  I’ve been doing my own massaging, so hopefully that is helping.

And now that I’ve been whining about everything, enjoying the quiet and aloneness of everyone else being in bed, I’m feeling a wee bit better, as it usually happens.

It’s late, but I think I’ll read some blogs and then head up to bed. The solitary and quiet is hard to find around here sometimes, you know?
