Struggles with compliments

It has never been easy for me to accept a compliment. Maybe because I always sort of expected that I didn’t really deserve them…

Having said that, I’m getting better at accepting and thanking someone for them.

Then, something happened that completely blew me away. But first, a little preamble:

How one episode of Big Bang Theory made me reminisce the last 12 years

(Disclaimer: long story about my early days as a mom with a toddler and an infant.)

On Monday night I watched a bunch of syndicated Big Bang Theory episodes. As always, they were funny and entertaining, but one in particular kind of threw me for a loop. It somehow sparked a weird, long, complicated memory of my early mom days from 12 years ago.

I sat in my bed immediately after that episode finished, and typed out the convoluted mess that my subconscious dredged up into my blog.

You’re welcome. 😊

I hereby caution you: the following post is lengthy, ugly, painful, and maybe just a little bit insightful. If you are in a delicate state of mental health at the moment maybe skip over this one.

You have been warned.❗

After I typed it out, I realized something: watching tv is hazardous to my mental health.

Either that, or it’s therapeutic.

Yeah, let’s go with the second one. Catharsis, if you will.

Killing the blog

Yesterday and all this week so far has been crap.

If one more thing happens I will lose my mind. Again.

My Pity Party in full progress.

So last night, in utter desperation and with no one to cry to, I emailed a friend from the parking lot at a rink at 10 o’clock at night that I was thinking of quitting blogging.

This morning he responded with:

Don’t kill your blog!

So basically, it’s his fault that this post is Pointless Stupidity. 🙂

Anyway you wanna know about all my issues?

Disclaimer: it’s a lot of whining and complaining, so feel free to exit now.

About quitting, or not

I realize some of you follow LA and she just did a whole thing on quitting last week. But this topic hit me upside the head last night so I’m pausing my pity party for a moment to mention it.

Creepy, sneaky depressive moods

I can feel it coming, the depression. It’s creeping in. Taking hold, slowly, cell by cell.

I try to figure out the source and stop the flow but I don’t know what it is – Genetics? Seasonal changes? Hormones?

Let’s blame hormones. 🙄

Here we go again: the job search is back on

The other day we did something fun about teeth brushing. Click here to see that post.

If you guessed number 1 for my teeth brushing habit,  you guessed right. Quite a few of you do it the same way! But some of you do it differently and I’m sorry to say, you’re weird. 🙃

In other news, I wrote and deleted two blog posts for today. Boo. They were too long, too wordy, too inconsequential, too stupid.

Ramble before office hours: familial responsibilities

Good morning from my couch office. 🙂

My office hours haven’t begun yet but I’m feeling a tad discombobulated about recent events. I thought I’d empty my head into the keyboard before I start my writing projects. Technically I have just under an hour before work starts…and, I have coffee. So sit back, I got some complaining story telling for you. 😉
