What's With All This Funk?

I don't know what is going on lately but I seem to just be in a bit of a funk. Last week I was feeling pretty good and managed to get a lot accomplished. This week I don't want to do much of anything. I'm wondering if the changing weather has anything to do with it. It's such a tease, I tell you! The air is getting warmer, snow is melting, I should be able to go out and enjoy it, right? However, I can't! I can't get excited about muddy ground, dirty snow, huge puddles on the sidewalk, brown grass, bare trees. I just can't! Everything just feels dirty and depressing right now. Sometimes I do wonder how I am able to stand living here. I just have to keep the faith that here is where God wants me... but hopefully just for now. I sure would be happy to move. I suppose every location comes with it's own set of pros and cons though.

I've been itching to get my sewing corner set up again. I have so many things I need to work on. Where will I find the time? I would love to be able to make things to sell but I just can't settle on what I should make. I really enjoy crafting of all kinds but I want to have a particular focus so people don't get overwhelmed by what I offer!

Oh anyway, I really don't have much to say today. I'm just tired, have a headache, and feeling like a lump. Now, aren't you glad you stopped by to check up on me? :)

I need to follow my own advice and...
Make each day count!


  1. I blame Obama and the time change!

  2. I understand funks, but mine mostly come at certain times of the day. Yesterday I was just done with my baby and had to ask Dan to step in.

    Maybe we could go walking with the kids together?

  3. LOL I'm with Connie! But really, I struggle with the same thing. The mud and dirt I'm washing and sweeping every hour drives me crazy and makes it hard to find the joy in spring being here. You say you "can't" get excited about it or "won't"? This is a question Dean always ask me when I say "I can't." It bugs me so bad when he does that but his point is made. Find God in all the little things that bug you and your out look my change. My 2 cents on it anyway. Hope it helps :-)

  4. I know, Elizabeth. Actually, as I was writing out the blog last night I was thinking about how unappreciative I sounded and how I should be finding the joy of the Lord in the changes that are taking place outside :)

  5. Oh Ashley! I hate to say it, but I think you inherited that "funk" from me. I'm most definitely in a funk myself. It ALWAYS happens during the winter, but it's spring now, and I should be coming out of it. - But I'm not.

    I want to appreciate every moment, and enjoy the girls growing up, but oh, how they challenge me! And, oh, how I wish my older kids lived near me! And, oh, how I wish I knew my grandchildren, and could see them often!

    But everyone is (reasonably) healthy and we are definitely blessed, so I'm trying hard to focus on that. I hope your spirits pick up, and that you are able to find the joy!

    I love and miss you!
