Sometimes Life is Boring. I Don’t Know Why.

Last week was one of those weeks where I didn’t want to do anything.  I call it the Stay at Home Mom blues.  I know that everyone gets them, not just stay at home moms, but last week it was all about staying home for me.

I didn’t want to do any of the things I think of as my “job” because I stay home.  I didn’t want to do laundry.  I didn’t want to cook.  I didn’t want to read Fly Guy with my 6 yr old.  I didn’t want to drive the kids to swim.  I didn’t want to work out or swim or run.  I broke my rule and watched my favorite tv shows without working out during them.  I ate candy bars instead.

I’m not sure what I wanted to do.  (I did read 3 books last week, though.)

Part of me wanted to get a job.  I wanted to leave my house every day and go somewhere else.  I wanted to feel a sense of accomplishment.

I also wanted to throw away all of the stupid paper I keep with spelling words and homework assignments and bills and every other paper I have.  I wanted to clean my house by just throwing away anything on a table or the floor.  My mantra was: Burn it.  Burn it all.

And I went to bed every night waiting for it to go away the next day.

I’m not saying life has to always be new and exciting; I’m saying there are times when it’s just boring.

I think these might make my life more interesting.

I think these might make my life more interesting.

I think it all stems back to the fact my parents never got me a pony.

When you have the blues, what do you do to get over them?

    I totally have the ‘burn it all’ mantra. I get this way too. Sometimes I’m so sick of dealing with house crap, kid crap and DH crap. I think during those times it’s best just to power through and try to think of the good things in life. (. A good piece of chocolate, the perfect cup of chai, a great song, your kids -when they’re sleeping of course, a good book…)
    Remember I’m only a text away. 😁
