It has been a fantastic month…in theory.
I turned 30.
John Xavier turned 1.
I got a new and exciting job.
My sister-in-law got engaged and I get to be a bridesmaid.
My mom had an opening for a botanical art show she is in at the New York Botanical Garden.
I officially became a Catholic during the beautiful, ceremonial, 3 hour, Easter Vigil.
Life is good. And special. And there have been celebrations and things to celebrate around every corner.
And yet, I am feeling some sort of down. Heavy. Unhappy. Snappy. Grumpy.
And I have had a serious case of Writer’s Block.
Maybe it’s this weather. We have moved from the Longest Winter Ever straight into The Rainiest Spring Ever.
Maybe it’s adjusting to being away from my kids more often now that I am working again.
Maybe it’s that we stopped fitting in our workouts.
Maybe it’s just fatigue and stress.
Who knows? Not me.
I just know I am Over. It.
I am ready to turn this frown upside down.
I am also curious to know if you have ever had this happen? Felt sad when you should feel happy? Because I would love to know that I don’t need to be sent off immediately to the looney bin. And I would also love to hear what tricks you use when you need some cheering up and the usual suspects aren’t working?
I really can’t afford to buy a miniature giraffe right now, but I am open to all other suggestions.
