My friend Eileen said she's tired of seeing the Wienermobile, and I've gotten emails from a couple people wondering if I'm okay, so I thought I should post something.
Yes, I'm okay, more or less. I'm kind of depressed--not depressed as in I feel like doing myself an injury or huddling in the dark in a fetal position, but just that I don't feel particularly enthusiastic about anything. I understand from people who have some experience with or knowledge of addiction therapy that it's common for our brain receptors to shut down and stop feeling good things for a little while after we break a habit like drugs, alcohol, or nicotine. So I'm guessing that's what's bothering me now. And that lack of enthusiasm? Well, it means that I'm not very enthusiastic about writing either--not to mention the fact that my enjoyment in the everyday occurrences and my sense of humor seem to have flown right out the window too.
Then add to that bit of depression some kind of stomach flu. I think I've had it to a mild degree at least since last Friday, but it really hit me hard around 6 o'clock this morning. I kind of think Hubby's starting to get it too--he wasn't feeling well this afternoon, but more like I was feeling over the weekend: just tired and a little lightheaded.
Anyway, the point is that I'm here, I'm doing okay, and I'll write when I have something to talk about, but I might not write every day for a little while. Sorry about that--I know that crazy as it may seem, some of you like to check in on me every morning and miss me if I'm not here. On a positive note, though, I have a little giveaway planned soon, so DO please stop by occasionally--I'd hate you to miss it!
