Bedtime

I’m in a pissy mood, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I’m tired of the day-in/day-out of this pandemic. I’m tired of every day being the same. I’m tired of myself complaining to myself.

It’s a good thing I have phone calls scheduled for tomorrow. To stay connected to friends and family. And a tele-health therapy appointment. Otherwise, I think I’d stay in bed.

Not with my covers over my head. Just for something different to do.

I’d wake up, roll over, go back to sleep. When I’d done that two or three times, I’d come out to get coffee, then go back to bed and read on my Kindle all morning.

I’d emerge to get some lunch – something I can eat in bed – and go back, eat, and take a nap. When I’d wake up, I’d lay still and watch the clouds out the window for a while. Then I’d sit up with my pillows all around me, gather my tiny ball of yarn and crochet hook, and practice my single stitch. (That’s what I’m learning new during this lockdown; right? “This is a great time to try a new hobby.” Can I say “Bah! Humbug!”?????)

I’d probably have to come out for a snack. I’m all out of vanilla Greek yogurt, so I might try making a smoothie with the little cherry yogurt cups. But I’d drink it in bed.

The cats would be very confused by my behavior, and they’d keep checking on me. Until they decided to nap with me.

I guess I might shuffle out for dinner, unless I could convince my husband to bring me dinner in bed. Shoot, maybe he’d join me and we could have a picnic. He’d have to put on his pjs to join me, though.

By evening time, I might be ready to take a break from the bedroom, so I’d come out to watch tv for an hour or so. And then it would be bedtime.

I’d put on new pjs and crawl back under the covers, ready to sleep, and face the next day.

    I’ve had a couple of those pissy mood days. Honestly I chose to stay in a bad mood all day once this week. My husband bore the brunt of my mood. The calls to you to vent then pray were the best medicine. You Helped me to choose to be grateful rather than grumble. Thankful for you dear friend! Tomorrow…”it’s gonna be a good day!”

    I hear you Peggy! I had two very pissy days this week. This whole thing sucks. I try to focus on the little things so I’m not so overwhelmed by it all, but wow, it gets tough!

    Hang in there, call if you need to vent!

      It’s really the first time in this whole thing that I got pissy. I’ve been bored, but yesterday was the first real day of irritation. Today’s a little better😀

    WHY NOT! It sounds lovely!

    I’ve been working nonstop on my Pampered Chef for I think 3 weeks now since my stupid hypomania kept me from being ABLE to work for 3 weeks and I got so behind! This is awful! I am ready to try your treatment ANYtime!!!
