Welcome to “My Week in Review Using Gifs”. Here is where I link back to this week’s must-read posts, and I tell you about <insert sarcasm> my glamorous week using . . . you guessed it! Gifs.
This past Monday was New Years Day. I spent the day without much fanfare. Just cooked some delicious food for my husband Daniel.
There was a football game that night for which he became upset, so I tried to comfort him and show how much I cared about his feelings.
But I digress.
I decided to hold off writing until I had some coffee, but all I had was decaffeinated. The decaf coffee tasted . . . interesting.
Tuesday I also had a session with my therapist Randy. He gave me his opinions on my blog to which I thought silently . . .
Otherwise, I took my friend on some errands and had a good day.
Wednesday I could sense a change in my mind and mood. On the periphery of my awareness, I could tell something big in my mental state was altered. I started dissociating and switching. A storm of a headache was brewing. There was only one thing I could do to make the headache go away.
Yes, Oprah, I have been sober. I just meant I needed to sleep off the headache.
After a long night of restful sleep . . .
I woke up Thursday and my moods ping-ponged and changed rapidly.
I guess my mind decided to settle on depression again because it descended and set up camp in my soul.
I reflected on what might be contributing to my low mood, but I didn’t act on the insight into my depression.
Friday was even worse. I was so depressed, I would not shower
or attend my therapy session with Randy.
But by Friday night, my depression had gotten on my last nerve, and I was ready to move on.
I woke Saturday uninspired but determined to feel better. I showered, shaved, shampooed my hair, put on makeup, took my medications, got dressed . . .
I know. TMI.
I still didn’t feel less depressed until later, but it did happen .
My husband Daniel and I walked my dog Maybelline in the afternoon. Maybelline and I ran together a little.
Saturday night, Daniel took me to a fancy restaurant
and we ate dinner. Nothing says “love” like waffle fries.
We came home and I got busy writing and playing around with my blog.
Yes. I made a mistake and accidentally republished a post on my blog, and my readers said . . .
I had just pushed the wrong button on my blog.
No big deal. I deleted the republished post, and no harm was done.
So that is my week in review with Gifs. I hope you enjoyed it! Stay tuned for a new post next week about the glamorous life of our blog.
I’d love to hear from you!
