Oh, readers. I’m in a bit of a funk. Lately, I haven’t felt like reading. Ever. Or blogging. Or doing much of anything besides watching old episodes of Bones and Gilmore Girls. I have spent more time in bed watching tv the last two weeks than I have in ages. Emily from Books, the Universe, & Everything has aptly named my funk (and apparently hers as well): Exhaustion.
I am exhausted. Just physically and mentally drained. Last week I blamed this exhaustion on my insane weekend trip to Michigan. Now, I’m not sure if it’s the fact that Ben is gone, or the depressing weather (oppressively hot followed by nonstop rain), or something else. But when I get home from work, reading is the last thing I want to be doing. I can get a chapter or two in before I grow restless and move on to something else.
I’m looking for that one thing that will take me out of this exhaustion and ease my restlessness. The perfect book, a good discussion with a friend, a fantastic yoga class. On Friday, I am heading up to North Carolina to spend a long weekend with Ben. I have high hopes that this trip is that One Thing. But that still leaves me with five more days of this funk.
So readers, please excuse me if I seem a little lackluster lately. I promise I will be back in full force soon.
How do you all get out of funks like this?
