Feeling funky

Do you ever have one of those days where you just feel like you're in a funk? That's me today.

I'm not sure where it came from. Yesterday was a pretty good day -- lots of Go Red for Women fun stuff (clothes, makeup, working out with Kyle) and a much-needed evening in with girlfriends. Plus, today is the first sunny day we've had in a while.

Yet, I'm still feeling out of sorts and a bit like I might cry. Let's examine the anatomy of a funk:
  • Husband recently downsized and the reality of that sinking in.
  • Cat needing sudden and not inexpensive surgery (Is it bad that I was weighing whether or not we should pay for the procedure or go for the cheaper, more final route?)
  • House a crazy mess and activities every night of the week that are keeping us from getting a handle on it.
  • Collision of the pressure of wanting/needing to lose 10 more pounds before the Go Red for Women luncheon in 4 weeks and the feeling that I'm losing steam in doing the things I need to do to get me there.
  • A good friend's baby and a teacher's spouse both critically ill.
Can I just stop here and scream for a minute?!

Scream

Ok. So what can I do about it?
  • Pray. (Check!)
  • Eat something. (Not advisable in light of the 4th point above, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that French fries might help.)
  • Blog. (That always seems to help.)
  • Go to the gym. (Headed there soon.)
  • Hope that tomorrow is a better day.
How do you handle those funky days?

I blog and post on the message boards, as you know.
I think you will also feel better after working out. I always do, as it seems to clear my head.

You certainly have enough going on to be stressed about. Any chance of cutting down on some of the evening activities?

I think cats are evil, so I think it's a wonderful thing to consider the alternative. ;)

I sure hope your funk passes soon. I had a day like that recently, too, and it stinks. A lot of sleep and a LONG hot shower really did help, though. And brining out some old prayer books I hadn't used in too long.

I cry, take a bath.....I've been in a funk as well. Lets just blame it on the weather.

Sometimes I drive around and listen to sad music, sometimes I take a shower, lots of times I eat. Go with what usually works for you, and I hope this funk goes away soon. I'm really sorry to hear about your husband, I know that must be stressful.

Been there too often. And eaten too often. Hang in there, like the frog on your blog logo. ((hugs))

Blah days....common for me in January...so I try to get enough rest, buy something that I need just for me,
invite friends over for dinner and games--that forces me to clean up PLUS it's fun! And sometimes, I just zone out.

Hang in there!

Sorry about the illnesses. :>(

Congrats for not eating the french fries (I read the newer posts first.)

That is such a cute picture of you, even with the scream.
