Carole King to AC/DC

[source]
***This post was written stream of consciousness on Sunday. I almost deleted it, but then thought that wouldn't be real. These are my thoughts for Thursday. ***

Today has been weird. Just plain weird. I'm in a funk and honestly have no idea why. I went to bed happy, I watched Despicable Me 2 for crying out loud. Oh and guess who slept for 12 hours last night? Yep, that would be me. So I cannot figure out what my gal darn problem is today. Le Husband has commented multiple times on my mood and asked me countless times what's wrong. I tried to tell him this morning that I just felt off, which clearly hasn't helped. I mentioned emotions and just being blah later in the day, but to no avail. I really thought that trying to explain it to him would help me understand what the frick is wrong with me.

I'm not in a rain cloud or a storm, I'm just in a bit of a hazy fog. Have you ever been there? Where you know NOTHING is wrong, but everything seems to be a bit grey [not 50 shades, though]. I feel so lackluster at the moment, but there isn't ANYTHING troubling me in my life right now. Life is really good. Like sickening good, almost. I'm so happy with Le Husband. We laugh all the time, I'm excited to go to the gym with him and have him to come home to at the end of the day and our cooking dates are so much fun. We've been married almost 1.5 years, but I still feel like a three month newlywed. So, there's nothing at home bothering me.

No one in my family is terminally sick, nor am I dealing with any major health issues [if you are, please know my prayers go out to you. BIG HUG < 3]. I'm so thankful for my health and my body's ability to keep up with what I think I should be able to do. I know so many out there that suffer, daily and I'm not one of those people.

Le Husband and I both have our jobs, and while they are a bit annoying at times, we aren't  over worked, super stressed or scared regarding a layoff [big hug if you're dealing with work troubles < 3]. Nor are we dealing with a forced move due to jobs, family situations or finances. My job is not my favorite thing in the world, but the money is good, I have great insurance and I can take vacay whenever I want.

We also aren't dealing with any issues/struggles of fertility or baby rearing. Who knows what the future may hold, but for us the time for children is not right now. One day I hope to be a mother and God willing that dream will come true, but Le Husband and I are on the same timeline page regarding the when and it's not in our plan for this calendar year [if you are struggling friends, my heart goes out to you. Even though I've never been in your shoes feel free to ask me to pray for you. I truly belive in the power of prayer and am sending you all a huge hug and lots of love < 3 ].

While we aren't planning on children anytime soon, we are looking to make a big change in our life this year, but there are a lot of moving pieces that have to come together. Le Husband and I are ready, yet we are powerless because of the forces that be and could be for quite some time. I think I'm a bit anxious to get to that point, though. So yeah, there may be a bit of nervous energy around this adventure, but the excitement is much more prevalent than the worry. I'm ready for the next chapter, apprehension and all.

I'm annoyed with myself right now, because I feel so whiny. And, unless I'm being silly or I'm truly hangry, I'm not whiny. Le Husband is being so great to me today and I wish I could figure out how to get back on track. I need to be like the  CHEVY commercial, Carole King to AC/DC {although my song is back in PINK, not black, haha}.

*******

So, around 8pm, Sunday, my day turned around. A sweat session at the gym, homemade pizza and a funny show helped right my attitude. Honestly, I can also attribute my swing to this blog because when I was recapping my weekend I realized what a charmed and blessed life I have right now. If you're bored after reading this post, I don't blame you. I almost just trashed it because it felt a lil too journalesque. But, that day was weird and I want to acknowledge my thoughts in case something like that happens again. I know I'm blessed and I hope next time I can figure out how to shake it off!

How do you get through a grey day? Any thoughts when it's totally random?

We all have those days girl...I mean it's life! Nothing has to be wrong but something just feels off! I've definitely had them and then snap out just as fast as i went into the little funk! I know this was written on Sunday so I hope you're feeling better now! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

Sometimes you just have "one of those days". Ive had them plenty of times before, Im sure we all have. It sucks because theres no reason to be in a blah mood but you just are. At least you snapped out of it quick!

it happens! sometimes it's the weather, sometimes it's the hormones (like a drop in estrogen does it for me), but glad you got out of your funk.

Illegally Blonde said...

Oh honey, I have those days often. Its not any one thing its just a feeling, a funk is the right word. Its ok and it will pass but its good you can acknowledge it and hope to move past it. Sometimes we just get too content and need something to worry about or focus on and that is when we must be patient and trust in Him. Love you.

Kathy@RealTalk said...

everyone has those days! you did right by looking at the bigger picture but sometimes, we just need our moment to have those kinds of feels in order for us to really appreciate what we have and snap out of it.

i'm prone to mood swings which is why i workout so much....it's my natural anti-depressant.

whatever moving pieces there are in your life, i really hope they settle soon!

Julia said...

Yes, been there! I think we all have! Sometimes you just feel "off" like you said and there's no particular reason why. I know how frustrating it is because I get annoyed with myself too when I'm down in the dumps for no reason. I'm glad you feel better now though! :)

Courtney B said...

Oh sweet girl, we all have been here! I would like to blame hormones... which it very well could be!
Also, I love you and the hubs always cook together! Eric and I aren't the couple that love to cook together. The only way it works is if Eric's outside grilling and I'm in the kitchen, ha ha! Then again, I also really love when Eric cooks and I don't have to do a dang thing but eat the delicious food ;)

Katie Elizabeth said...

Girl, I totally have these days too! And it's okay - normal even! Glad to hear your Sunday ended up turning around, there isn't much that pizza can't fix :) Thanks for sharing this post!

Alisha said...

I think everyone has those days, weeks, or months. I know I do, and I truly feel bad because I know how blessed I am. I loved this honest post today, and happy you were able to turn everything around. :) <3 Sending lots of hugs!

Jessica said...

We all have those days, sweet girl! No matter how good life is. And sometimes it just takes something tiny to turn it around for the positive. I'm glad you are feeling a bit better today, and hope the grey days stay away! Thanks for sharing your heart today, and know that I am of course praying for you and your hubby as you contemplate any big decisions/changes you have coming your way! :) Always here for you!!!

Hannah said...

Blogs are the best at reminding us how blessed we are!! Hope your week is going well! <3

Joey said...

oh girl I can relate to this so so much. Those grey kind of days that are just blah for no apparent reason--they're the worst. I love that you were able to turn it around! Running, eating a good meal and a funny show with the hubs is definitely what does it for me too!

Christy Ashley said...

Honestly, sometimes you just NEED to be whiny. Put on some head phones, get in a good work out and try to sweat it out. If that doesn't work, just accept it for what it is. We've all had those days!

Jen said...

I personally feel that it is healthy to have days like this. No one has to be perfect and happy all the time. :)

Kristen said...

I have days like this - heck, I think we all do. Sometimes I'm just off, or down. more often than not, something will pull me back out of it and it doesn't last more than 24 hours (glad it didnt for you) but they definitely happen. i think it helps us appreciate the good things when we come out of the funk, you know? perhaps your subconscious is more nervous about the future than you think. it's hard to leave things in other peoples hands!

Rebecca Jo said...

I tend to feel that way when, ironically, its literally grey outside. When the sun doesn't shine, I feel so BLAH... I always say I'm solar powered.

JumpingJE said...

Being in a funk is just a reminder that you need to get funky! Dance party and boozy brunch!!!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I try not to over think it. I'm not going to be happy or sad all the time. Sometimes I'm going to be indifferent.

To shrug it off, I walk the dogs, read a book, or paint my nails. I also do a quick and dirty 10 things I'm thankful for.

Rachel said...

I totally know what you mean about feeling "down" and not really knowing why. It's an awful feeling! I'm glad you are a little better. When I'm having a glum day, I usually watch reruns of The Dick Van Dyke Show (he's my favorite actor), because each episodes makes me laugh, even when I don't want to. A little ice cream also helps! :) Stopping by from Thoughts For Thursday! Have a great day!

hope you feel better soon!! maybe a glass of wine and a bubble bath are what you need…

Emily said...

We all have those days girlie so I totally understand! So much to be thankful for but sometimes you just need some downtime to think about things. Maybe as women, we sometimes over-extend ourselves and then we crash! I don't know what it is but I've had many like it and just can't explain it. Hoping this weekend brings back the pep in your step! xx

Carly Blogs Here said...

Sometimes I think those days are some of the worst because it can be so frustrating when you can't figure out what's wrong. So glad your day turned around :)

Kay R. said...

Oh girl we all have them so dont feel bad. I get over them just the way you did. Gym, relaxation and family :)

Hey, it happens to all of us! Don't beat yourself up over it. Bad days/mornings are normal. You have a good life and a good outlook overall and THAT is what matters! :)
