The daily grind is getting old

Every now and then I get into this funk. A funk where I feel like all I do is the exact same thing every single day. Yeah I should be thankful for having an every day routine as a lot of people could only hope for their routine back right now. And I am thankful. Just getting a little tired. And it may just be the fact that I’ve been working a lot lately. All I really feel like doing when I get home from work in the evening is watching the dogs play and then getting in bed. Oh and I can’t seem to peel my eyes away from CNN :| Which just adds to frustration and sadness.

I’m at work right now. Just hanging out. It’s Labor Day so we get holiday pay and no one comes into the office so it should be a fairly quiet day. I wont lie though, I really wish I was at home with Gene today. My mom is going to take the mower over there later so that he can mow our yard. The grass has been growing at a pretty fast rate ever since we got all of that rain a couple of weeks ago. Up until then, we were only mowing the yard once every 2 or 3 weeks. Crazy stuff!

The UPS website showed Astro’s crate had an arrival scan on July 31, 2005 in Illinois. Well, I heard nothing from UPS and it was supposed to be shipped on the 3rd, so I figured it just was going to be late due to what all is going down in the South right now. Well, on the 3rd it showed up on the UPS site that the package was in Washington and it had been “forwarded to the facility in the destination city.” Ooook. I’m guessing it just somehow got on the wrong truck and ended up in Washington, or something? Because I’m between Washington and Illinois and Washington would be WAY out of the way! Who knows though, I’ve never really understood UPS’s process. I’m sure it makes total sense to them, though!

My nose is cold. Should have brought a jacket or something. I’m going to make a dentist appointment tomorrow. I really need to go in and have my teeth cleaned and checked out. It has been entirely too long since I’ve done that. I hate the dentist office, with a passion. Just walking into the lobby, smelling all of that dental smell.. Ugh! Really makes me feel nauseated. But I’m going to be the brave woman I am and call to make an actual appointment! I mean, what is the point of having dental insurance if I don’t use it! Wish me luck with that…

  1. Although I hate to know that there are people out there who are feeling the same way I do, I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling like I’m stuck in a rut. I hate the fact that I’ve been doing this for three years now, and odds are, it’s not going to change much. I feel like sometimes it’s just a waste, and I should be doing something BETTER with my life. But, I know that this is what life is about, and I do have it good, all things considered… I feel your pain, though!

  2. And it’s not always that I am actually IN a rut. Sometimes I just feel like I’m in a rut but I may not necessarily be in one. Sometimes I think my brain and body just get tired. I mean, I am SO thankful for the “rut” I am in and thankful that I do have someone to share my life with and two absolutely adorable dogs and a nice, warm (and sometimes cool) home to stay in. I’m thankful for everything.. It is just that sometimes, I feel like I need something new! But I don’t necessarily want anything to change… if that makes sense?
