So … I’m very late to the linky love over at My Home Truths with the lovely Kirsty this week. Why? I’m not sure, but maybe by writing, instead of wallowing, I might figure it out.
I have been feeling extremely lackadaisical, (such a great word!!), the last week or so. The Free Dictionary says being such, means;
1. lacking vitality and purpose
2. lazy or idle, esp in a dreamy way
This is not my recipe – it is a Better Homes & Gardens Magazine one, you can find in the August 2013 edition on page 36.
Improving our home has been high on the agenda, but low on the budget for a good long while, so seeing this start to happen has been a nice little buzz for us all;
Our home is very old & in need of much TLC – the shower has been an issue with a big crack in the base causing all sorts of damage. This is the first step towards rectifying that – (thank goodness my partner is the handy builder type!). Score 2 for the ‘purposeless’ shrew!!
It is typically cold & windy Winter days at the moment, making one & all feel a little miserable & indoor stir crazy. To try & break the monotony, (& give Daddy the space to keep working on the above), the kidlets & I did this;
It was lots of fun & reminded me that I need to enjoy the little things & being in the moment more instead of worrying about what I haven’t done, or saying “no, not now” & leaving the now behind in favour of the what if, or the where to from here. Score 3 for the ‘idle’ me.
I love my family & the life we live. It is simple, but it is real. It is full & mostly it is happy. I worry about the what next & the where to from here, probably too much. I want to enjoy the now more, but know there are times when I worry & wonder, is this all there is. Truth be told, I know I should be content with this, if this is all there is, so why are there times when I’m not?
As they say, “this too shall pass” & I will pick myself up, dust myself off & make the best of what I know is already amazing – there are just times when I wish I could get off the merry-go-round, stop spinning & take a breath.
How about you? Do you ever feel this way? What’s your way of coping? Where do you turn?
Linking up with Kirsty from My Home Truths & because I’m late & it’s Tuesday I will add it to IBOT with Jess over at Essentially Jess, because I can! Score 4 for the ‘linky’ whore! ;0
It truly is the little things that make it all worthwhile. This I know, even with I am ‘lacking’!
