Down Day

Updated: Apr 12

I was supposed to work today. I had traded my evening shift for a day shift because I was trying to help out a coworker who needed today off. I didn't particularly want to work a Spring Break Saturday day shift; I was just trying to be helpful.

Last night my manager said she had noticed I had traded for the day shift but informed me they would be overstuffed and asked me if I would like to not work and take a paid day off instead. I gladly accepted.

I had planned on taking it easy today. Maybe write in my blog or catch up on a movie or TV show. But I've been incredibly unmotivated and even a little depressed today. Not sure why.

I've been awfully tired lately. I have an appointment with my doctor on Friday. It's checkup, but high cholesterol and diabetes run in my family, so I want to check on those too.

I'm certainly not my healthiest. Overweight. Don't exercise regularly. Eat a lot of stuff that isn't good for me. Sleep a lot. It's a battle sometimes to do what I know would make me feel better.

But I do feel kind of weary today. Glad I'm not working, although I enjoy my job.

But I feel sad today, too. No particular reason. Just have the blues, I guess.

Franki and Grizz are on the bed with me right now.

I was with Chappy earlier. No photo taken of her today, but I got this cute one of her a couple of days ago.

I also spent a lot of quality time with Blondie today. No photos of her today, though.

Isaias was asked to participate again in the All Hallow's Art Fest in Petaluma, California. We're very excited to return after not being able to be there the last two years because of the pandemic. It will be in September.

Isaias definitely needs to get back into his art again. His day job has kept him quite busy lately, and doing his art always makes him happy as does the yearly trip to Petaluma.

He's at work as I write this. It's just me and the cats right now. I love these guys. They bring me a lot of joy.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I've been busy and, as I said, unmotivated as well. Not a good combo.

Hopefully I can lift myself out of this funk. I have ideas, just not the drive to work on them, unfortunately. I suppose we all have times like that, huh?
