The Sunday blues...


I just got up for the second time and am having my second cup of coffee. Even though the sun is shining outside, I'm not enthused about the day, but I figure that everybody is allowed a day like that. I want to stay in my bathrobe and slippers and be lazy all day long and pretend that it has nothing to do with me. Actually, I would be doing what the day was created for, except that I wouldn't heed the call to prayer. I simply don't want to participate and I think I will be excused by whatever higher being lords it over me. 

I thought that it might be due to the fact that I had reduced my anti-depressants, but I decided that I was just in a slightly grumpy mood and not to blame it on that. I think it is quite normal to be in a grumpy mood every now and then for no particular reason other than that it is Sunday. It isn't my favorite day of the week anyway, no matter how hard I try to ignore this fact. Reducing my medicines has nothing to do with it. I simply want to be good and kind to myself and make the best of a not so exciting day. 

One thing I should not be and that is scared of moods, because they are the most normal thing  in the world. I can't always be even tempered, no matter how hard I try. I think I'm so very often in a positive mood that a grumpy mood takes me by surprise and I immediately get suspicious. I try to find a reason other than the most obvious one, in other words, that it's part of the human condition. It is possible to be fed up with the most ordinary things and to need a little time out, which is what I'm going to take today. 

Having written all of this down already makes me feel a lot better. I have probably analyzed it the long way around, but I have gotten to my point in the end. Anyway, there is to be no 'ought' or 'should' today. There are only wants and needs. 

Ciao,
Nora

Everyones allowed to be grumpy somedays and it hasn't anything to do with depression.
Hope your mood improves as the day goes on.
It is sunny but cold today.

Every one needs a day off...grumpy is an acceptable condition.

I am probably more grumpy than is allowed but I am anyway.

As human beings we are creatures of many moods and it is all part of our natures. We need to embrace all of our emotions so we can appreciate the joy of living.
Bathrobe and slippers day? We all need them, I must book one soon.

Everyone deserves a lazy day, to lounge about and accomplish nothing. It re-energizes the soul. I hope you found yourself smiling more as the day went on.

Bathrobe, slippers and coffee? Throw in a good Sunday paper and that's a pretty good use of a Sunday in my book. I hope you felt better as the day progressed

Jenner, the day got better as I embraced my grumpiness. It wasn't so painful after all.

Sam, I didn't have a Sunday paper, but it would have been perfect.
