i seem to have fallen into a ‘trough’ today.
trough (trɒf/) nounnoun: trough; plural noun: troughsa long, narrow open container for animals to eat or drink out of.
although to be fair, it’s probably more like a ditch:
ditch (dɪtʃ/)nounnoun: ditch; plural noun: ditchesa narrow channel dug at the side of a road or field, to hold or carry away water.
yes, i’m in a ditch on the side of the road. well, that’s not strictly true, because my sober car is still moving forward. the engine is running. it’s just travelling slowly. i seem to have not quite enough gas today. or there’s a slow leak in one of my tires. or it’s foggy. what’s the right way to describe this?
well i’ve got a case of the “mehs” or the “blahs”
i need … oh here it is, i need a jumpstart. my sober car needs a jumpstart.
there is no danger in this car truly going off the road, but holy i could use with an attitude adjustment today.
i am making food today, but feel quite uninspired. the weather is cool and grey (4C). i had a good sleep. i had a good breakfast.
a series of small ‘blah’ ‘meh’ moments that just seem to have added up. tv shows uninteresting.
i set up a catering special-event but so far no one is interested … meh.
we’ve been trying to find an office for my husband to move into so he can stop working from home, and found a nice shared one, but was just informed that it fell through cuz his co-sharer is worried that he’s going to disrupt her if he’s there every day… um isn’t that what co-sharing an office means? it’s sort of like we know that moving him to a separate office is the goal now, but can’t figure out how to get there, except to keep on trudging … blah.
that’s life isn’t it 🙂 you get a cloudy day, so you have a treat, a nap, a run, and wait for the weather to clear. and you keep on trudging.
today is not a running day for me, but i think i’ll go anyway. and i may have a hamburger for dinner. cuz that always pleases me. and i may clean the bedroom. because some decluttering and puttering is always a good idea.
ok. i’ll go run now. and i’ll run until i have an attitude adjustment.
** edit. i think the source of my biggest ‘meh’ is about my husband’s work situation. so if you could send good vibes that he moves into a separate office, soon, within our budget, within an hour’s commute from here, that’d be swell. **
