Stuck in the mud....but not literally....

So the last week (12 days to be exact) have been very... blah.  Between doctors appointments and "resting"...."make sure to get plenty of rest" is what the doctors said...I have felt so stuck, a little empty, and for the most part...just blah.  I don't think blah is defined in the dictionary as an adjective, but for me....blah is an adjective.  Yes I love to climb in bed, snuggle with my dog, and watch tv...but that can only be fun or "relaxing" for so long.  After several days of sweatpants, reruns of Real Housewives of New Jersey, flat hair, and no make-up....I decided to plug in the curlers, open the make-up drawer, and put on my favorite black leather boots (yes I know it's not Fall yet but whatever) and got out of the house.  I decided that in order to get out of this funk, I needed a little retail therapy.  On Saturday, my mom and I ventured out into shopping land in order to get me out of the house and in hopes of feeling better.  Cute hair, cute shoes, iced green tea from Starbucks in hand.......and yet I did not buy a single piece of clothing.  Not one.  For me that is pretty bad....  Instead I resorted to a few pieces of chunky jewelry and some new eye shadow.  I have a handful of eye shadows and I still only wear maybe 3 of those....  And jewelry, ya I could open my very own store.  I know it will take some time to get "back to normal" but I am running out of patience.  I hate feeling bored, stuck, and blah.  In the past 2 days I have been thinking of ways to get rid of the blah and have come up with everything from baking and decorating christmas cookies to painting my dining room lime green.  I have not done either one....but serioulsy....this funk needs to go far far away...like now.  I always try to stay as positive as I can, but there's this thing called Life....and no matter how hard you try, sometimes you just feel blah.  GO AWAY BLAH!  GO AWAY.... 

And PS:  Thank you SO much Mr. and Mrs. Klein for sending me flowers!  That honestly put pep in my step Saturday morning and led to me getting dressed and leaving my house for a bit.  THANK YOU so much for the gorgeous floral arrangement!  That was VERY sweet of you both! :)  And to the Kleiners...THANK YOU so much for the sweet note and the gift cards!  After a long day in the Doctor's office, that REALLY put a huge smile on my face.  Thank you so much!  :)

Hope you are having a non-blah day! :)

Oh no! I hate that feeling, what a drag. You are so blessed to have your awesome mama so close by though.
Retail therapy always helps me! :)
I hate that stuck feeling though, I went through that a bit after I had my second baby. It was a struggle. I made time to read and write (my passions). I also started learning some French, it was fun to bust out of my routine.
Hope you feel better soon!!
xoxo
PS-decorate those cookies girl! Maybe do leaves and acorns for Fall?
