That's how I feel today.  I feel positively "bleah".

It's dark and cloudy.  I probably ought to get dressed and go out somewhere, but I feel too depressed to do it.  So I've been sitting on the futon, watching movies.  Bill is a little worried about me and says we have to go out tomorrow if we don't go out today.

There are a lot of reasons why I'm feeling like a homebody.  The weather is a big part of the issue.  It's cold and dark and I don't necessarily want to be out when it's cold and dark.  Although the dogs aren't acting sick at all, I'm concerned about them.  I have razor burn on my legs because I shaved them without lubrication.  They're itchy.  And although it would do me some good to get some fresh air and a change of scenery, I just don't feel like it.

I did buy tickets to see Sting in March.  I got them in a "fan to fan" sale, which means they were probably overpriced.  Hopefully, they're also legit.  ;-)  I look forward to that show since I am a big Sting fan.  Maybe we'll do what we did last time and stay in Stuttgart.

We put up the trees yesterday.  I didn't really feel like it and, truthfully, it's kind of a burden to decorate for Christmas since it's just the two of us.  But I can't bring myself to skip decorating.

All in all, I'm just having a bleah day.  I didn't want to get up this morning, but had to answer the call of nature.  Once I do that, there's no more sleeping.  Zane and Arran had their morning walk, then had a good play session afterwards.  Both of them snuggled with me on the futon.  Now Zane is in bed and Arran is watching Wonder Woman on the futon.  I am pecking away at a boring blog post on my computer, wondering about the meaning of life.

I should go find a cute little pub, sit around and drink beer, and contemplate the meaning of feeling bleah.  Maybe I'm a little sad because Thanksgiving was a bit of a bust.  This time of year sucks.  :(

Sorry this post is such a downer.  Maybe tomorrow, I'll be perkier.


  1. It's cute that Arran watches Wonder Woman.

    I'm a bit blah, though I don't have quite as much darkness surrounding me as I'm not so far north. i don't like the commercialism of christmas and make it a point not to leave home (or my temporary home, wherever than may be) on that godawful Black Friday.I try not even to shop on the Internet on that day. I'm hurting no one but my self, but it's a stand I take.

    I'm at my aunt's home on one of their dairies. I did go out to watch a calf be born yesterday. My aunt wanted me to go on a walk with her this morning, but therer is too much wildlife around here. Porcupines, wild boars, coyotes, and mountain lions all venture down. I won't walk or ride one of the horses out of the pasture unless there's someone with me toting a gun who is a good shot. My aunt isn't.

    I did get a lot of studying done. We're staying here until about 1:00 a.m. Monday. There will then be no traffic and we'll make it home in under two hours. I have to come back Tuesday evening for a rosary here. One of the attending physicians said I could have Wednesday off if I want to work Saturday, but I really don't want to work saturday, so I'll nap after the rosary, then leave at midnight or 1:00 to come back to school. I'll still get a couple hours of sleep in before work.

    1. It's great to have choices, especially when it comes to work.
