“Wake up, Lynne!”
I’m in one of those moods where I’m doubting everything I’m doing and want to make major changes. Just get me out of the status quo.
I think I need a road trip. But wait. I had one a couple weekends ago, and it didn’t seem to help.
I think I need a break from winter. Temps have been in the low teens for the past two weeks, with the wind-chill making it feel much colder. Yet the big lake-effect snowstorm in upstate New York missed us, so there’s been no excitement of that kind to stimulate me. We have a few inches of crusted-over snow and ice, which makes walking in the woods treacherous. You have to watch your footsteps at all times, and doing just that, I walked into a low-hanging branch the other day. Ouch!
My life feels like a bowl of pudding, swirling around aimlessly while a child stirs it lackadaisically with a wooden spoon.
I seem to have forgotten the directions on how to live my life, and can’t remember where I filed them. There are things I should be doing, and probably an order of priority, but all I can manage is to fiddle with inconsequential minutia.
In the middle of the afternoon, I work on a sudoku puzzle.
“Wake up, Lynne.”
I’m bipolar. My mood will change. And I’m going to go for a walk now to help it along!
