The three people who responded to my poll said I should post it so here is the first thing I wrote this morning.

It’s dark and dreary outside. It will likely be this way for a couple of days.

We have less daylight every day.

I’m not getting enough sleep. There are various reasons for that.

I’ve had a few unsettling dreams.

The news is pretty much all bad.

I’m only a week and a half away from my daughter moving back to her apartment full time.

I spend a lot of time alone and that will increase when she leaves.

I think about jobs that would get me out of my house and out of my head. I don’t want a library job. but feel inadequate when considering other positions.

I think about reconnecting with people, but don’t. I feel like it would be more of a nuisance than a welcomed message.

I feel adrift, disconnected, alone.

This too shall pass, but it is hard right now.

  1. Oh my gosh. I am so glad I found this blog world. I didn’t know other people felt the same. Sometimes what gets me out is dreary is listening to total cheesy 80 love songs or watching Courage the Cowardly Dog. As far as the daughter thing, man, that’s tough.
