Friday Blahs...

Yep, I've got em. There is absolutely no reason for me to be feeling pitiful and sorry for myself, but ... I am. I have the don't want to do anything, but sit around and read or think non-deep thoughts and not cook or clean or work in the garden or try to teach these children some book stuff or manners or self-control or whatever the moment calls for. Sometimes you just get tired of thinking, you know?

Oh well. That isn't going to happen today. Yesterday we had school and then were gone for most of the day. Errands and grocery buying. I walked out of ALDI and just wanted to cry. Everything costs soooo much. I went to Publix to get some BOGO deals and everything really costs soooo much there. Sometimes it is hard not to get discouraged about it all.

After unloading all the groceries and getting supper together, which was one of the worst excuses for a supper ever, we all went out to pick blueberries. Between all six of us picking we got 3 quarts which is pretty good for one night's work. Blueberries are tiny little things, you know.

But guess what? Tomorrow night Mark and I are going to a party. A real-life grown-up party. To celebrate the 4th. With good food and company and fireworks. As in I will get dressed up and go out somewhere with my husband. All four kiddos will be coming along as it is a family party also, but I can handle that. Although a night out with Mark sounds delightful. Hint, hint.

By the way, Mark has a birthday coming up. Any good ideas of something fun and creative to get him? I am so boring right now and can't think of anything.

Okay, off to give two spelling tests and do multiplication flashcards. And Science narration. And I told Mark I would cook a real supper tonight. He didn't ask me to, bless his heart, he will eat whatever, he is so good-natured, but he does need sustenance. As do these four children and they are always reminding me of that fact.


  1. you poor thing, we all have those days. hang in there! do one "real" thing then reward yourself with a 15 minute hammock break :) enjoy your 4th of july party, sounds wonderful :)

  2. You and I must have the same disease...I'm also BLAH today and had a really lousy supper last night!

    The party sound like fun...I hope it is just the pick-me-up you need:)

  3. Have fun at the party, it sounds like fun. I can hardly imagine a "grown up" party at this point :)
    We all just went to a baseball game for Dh's bday - didn't see much baseball but I think he had a good time so it was worth it.

  4. Hmmm, was that "hint, hint" sent in my direction???
