Don’t Wanna, Not Gonna

Today I feel as though the word ‘malaise’ was coined specifically for me. A vague or unfocused feeling of mental uneasiness, lethargy, or discomfort? Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I’ll take two.

I have lackadaisically begun several, um, I’ll call them ‘projects,’ although that doesn’t normally apply to getting dressed. It does today. Lackadaisically begun several projects, including making breakfast, getting dressed, reading, shelving books, an art project, a craft project, one row of knitting.

I did finish exactly one ribbon bracelet, after watching parts of several YouTube how-tos for which I don’t have all the supplies and saying screw it, I’ll work something out.


Nothing is really catching my interest today. I seem to be perfectly content sitting up in bed staring at the wall. Not even finding pictures in the wood paneling, just blankly staring.

My husband suggested I work on my positive affirmations, but ehhh. I don’t know if I have it in me.

I probably wouldn’t have posted my photo challenge if I hadn’t taken it in the middle of the night.

But whatevs. I roused myself enough to write this. And now I have to get dressed to go to the store with my husband. I promised potato soup tonight.

Positive Affirmations

Tomorrow morning the counselor will be asking if I did my homework, so I’m sharing it with you so I don’t forget.

Five Positive Affirmations

1. I have the best blogging buddies anybody could ask for. I’m so lucky to have you guys.

2. I make good arts.

3. I am an awesome cook. If your clothes are getting a little big, just give me a call.

4. I am a smart shopper. I’m no extreme couponer, but I feed us pretty darn well on about $100 a month. More than that and we really eat like kings.

5. My family loves me.


Bonus! I do good nails.


And now I can’t stop thinking about that asparagus risotto.
