Week In Review – Visiting

I’m in the mountains of waaayyy southwest Virginia,
spending the weekend with my friend Vicki and her husband, Tony.
It’s snowing today (snow!) , so we stayed indoors with a project.
We cleared out and cleaned up and moved furniture
to create a new office space for Vicki’s new business.
It was fun, and it inspired me to do the same at my home.

Driving back home today, I extended my 5 and a half hour drive
by another hour and a half when I immediately got on the wrong exit.
I wasn’t paying a bit of attention to what I was doing!
I just got on 81 at the first ramp I saw.  What an idiot.
But I figured it out as soon as I saw a sign that said,
“Welcome to Tennessee”.

Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho…
It’s back to work I go.
I think I need a better nick-name.

I took a vacation day today!
I took an off week on the blog, but I did use my time well.
I cooked all day long and now have a refrigerator full of
healthy and yummy foods to eat.

Truck day today and I am just beat.
I got a B12 shot at the doctor last week and it’s long gone.
My muscles are so tired and every minute of my workday
simply dragged by…dragged, I tell you.
I had to push myself to keep going every step of the way. 

A busy day at the office.
Still low, low energy.
I went to my Aunt and Uncle’s for the next installment
of the financial planning course we’re taking,
and I could barely keep my eyes open. 

The wind was blowing so hard this morning
that it knocked a garden statue off my front porch.
I’m sad, because it broke.
Yes, it was a trio of frogs on a see-saw.
Yes, it was cheesy, and okay, a little bit tacky.
But they were my see-sawing frogs,
and I liked them.   *Sigh*

  1. Some weeks are not as fun as other weeks–but 2 goods days are better than no good days…

    • That’s true! The funny thing is, I didn’t even realize that I made it sound like mostly bad days. The extra hour and a half on the drive home was a kind of bummer, but it was mostly a pleasant drive. I just got really tired at the end. I was bummed out about my froggies.

  2. Some weeks are just low energy weeks but they usually pass 🙂 Having a fridge full of yummy and healthy food sounds pretty good to me and it’s inspired me to see if I can cook up a storm this weekend too. Here’s wishing you a great week ahead! 😀

    • You too! I’m always jealous of the delicious looking food you post on your blog. You always say it’s an easy recipe, and then I see it and I think, “I could never do that!” Have fun cooking!

      • They are! 🙂 Anyhoo I totally understand you getting bummed out by your see-sawing frogs. We just got back from a short trip and had bought a ceramic long-legged elephant which I really liked. Turned out the airline guys broke it – poor elephant now looks so sad with his broken trunk 😦

  3. Aw,, that is so sad about your froggies! I’ve had weeks like that, with my energy all depleted. Hope you get feeling energized 🙂

    • Thanks! I’m taking vitamin D now, but not sure if that’s enough.

  4. Maybe your lethargy is a touch of spring fever? When I taught, it was very evident that spring fever really does exist. There came a time when the kids just ran out of energy and could barely make it through the day. They would stare longingly out the window, wishing they could escape the confines of the school and go play outside. I could always sympathize, because I wanted to go outside and play, too!

    • I don’t know what it is. I did consider that it may just be winter and shorter hours, etc. Although I usually associate Spring Fever with increased energy and a desire to go, go, go. At least that cooped up feeling makes me feel like a spring (haha – two kinds of spring fever) that’s been held down too long – I just need to pop and stretch.

      I’ve got a follow up doctor’s appt. tomorrow about the lack of energy and tired muscles and whatall, but the blood tests came back already and nothing was indicated so far, except vitamin D. Anyway, I’ll see what he says tomorrow!

      • That’s good, though that the blood tests don’t show anything. I have several friends who swear taking vitamin D has helped them tremendously. Hope you feel better soon!
