Feeling Uninspired

Maybe its the fact that I haven't left my house in several days. Or the fact that my entire life for the last two weeks has been consumed by the house but I am feeling rather uninspired.

I am surrounded by people with a new year zest and I am well... I am the Eeyore of the group it seems.

Perhaps because I don't make resolutions?

Maybe its been the lack of a routine. I'm feeling stagnant.

Today is my first day back at work, which as you know is still within my home. I need to get back on the road, both for my own sanity and more importantly for my success at work.

Today I was at the gym at 7 a.m. and returned about 7:40 to meet the flooring guys...because I AM GETTING NEW FLOORING in the kitchen. TODAY.


No more 80's blue and white laminate. There is a God.

Getting the routine back, doing something other than paint all things I need. That will renew my spirit.

If this was a glimpse of life as a retiree I am going to need far more structure in my golden years.


  1. LOL, I work from home as well (although I do it every single day with NO travel) and after awhile I think that I'm going to go crazy if I'm couped up too long. So, I can relate.

    I don't really believe in resolutions per se either. I made the vision board after seeing what you had, and I would rather stick to something like that. Resolutions just always fall apart for me.

    I hope that things get cheerier for you! I know what its like to feel like everyone around you as such a rosy outlook and you feel like you are the only one who doesn't. That is normally me, lol.

  2. I too hope things start looking up! You'll probably be all motivated in a few weeks when the rest of us are already burnt out with our resolutions. ;-)

  3. I have never been a fan of making resolutions either. I always feel as though I start my year disappointed when I fall off the wagon or don't set out to do the things I had promised to myself. So I've made amendments that work for me. I make a list of goals for the year (but I don't write them down). I just keep them in my head. Things that are attainable and that would benefit me in the near future. Because a list of no-fail non-resolutions :)

    I wish you all the best for a happy and healthy 2011. Don't worry about being the Eeyore of the group. I'm sure things will start to look up for you soon and I'm sending good vibes your way, hun. *HUGS*
