Feeling really yucky today. Want to sit in a corner and cry. Don't know why. Most days it's mind over body. Today my mind seems to have joined with my body in feeling like crap. DH noticed and it was all I could do to get him to go to work. He wanted to stay home with me. I know if I don't even want to be around me, nobody else will either. lol
OHH Mary!! Sorry you are down - today is dreary here so I'm sorta in the same place. If it helps, just think of all the goodies you have gotten for the retreat and the "white elephant" gifts that will be exchanged!! Retreat is right around the corner!!
Oh Mary I have those days as well, it sucks ,, Just hang in there girl we have a retreat in about three weeks ,we need you at your best ..So keep that in mind ..laughter ,fun a d lots of woman talk LOL
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Hugs, Mary! Hang in there. Have some chocolate, put in a good tear-jerker movie & cry. I have those days as well and that's my remedy. I give myself permission to feel really crappy without a reason for it, load up on my pity party supplies and have at it. I had a marvelous woman once tell me that we can only be strong so much of the time. Once in a while we have to give ourselves permission to be weak and relish in it.
I would gladly join you, but know I'm there in the corner with you in spirit, at least.

Mary - Oh I know exactly how you feel - it usually comes on me when we have had yucky weather for days - with no sunlight outside - I truly have found that I need sunlight that it helps put a smile on my face.... and I do not want anyone around me either when I feel like that - I am sending you big quilty hugz - sending up prayers that this passes rather quickly and that you have that wonderful smile back on your face.
I took a quiet day on Tuesday - Mom was in the front room and I just shut off all the lights in the rest of the house - I did steam clean my rugs in the bedroom and clean it up but then I laid down on my bed with my book and just cuddled under my quilt - it helped me out a lot - some times you just need to regroup -
Many many prayers are being said for you to be able to feel wonderful quickly! But take all the time you need and know that you are much loved!
Susie:Have some chocolate, put in a good tear-jerker movie & cry.
I agree with Susie. Having a good cry feels so good. It's like we have to purge it out. Just know that it's 100% perfectly OK to feel bad every once in a while. We can't always be strong!
I felt like that 2 days ago when my Kitty went missing for 2 days, I was so sad and depressed, no one could make me feel better, I couldn't even eat anything!
Mary, It is permissable to be sad and grumpy and down some days. Like everyone else says, have a good cry and get it out. If you need to just get away from home, my house is always available. If you need to go out for lunch, give me a call and we can meet up in Pigeon Forge for pancakes....hehe

Mary, just cry, throw a plate at the wall, or do something really silly. Will refresh the spirit.
Annie, I hope your kitty came home.
She came home around midnight like if nothing happened. I was so happy to see her and she was giving me the silent treatment. I think she was in someone else's house since she wasnt starving when she returned.
Thanks for asking
We have a street walker female cat ourselves. She will leave and we will go to the door all night long and call for her. She comes dragging in about the time we get up the next day. DH calls her a Wh*re!! I tell her that she is just frisky. ; - }
Mary, I'm so sorry you're feeling so yucky today. I know exactly how you feel, and it's very frustrating, but it will get better. I'm happy to hear that your kitty came home!

Hope you get to feeling better really soon. I know it is tough when we get down like that. Hugs coming your way.
Oh Mary, I'm sorry. Add my hug to the others and go count your blessings. I hope you'll feel better soon.
