Funkalicious Friday

I don’t know WHAT’S up with me lately but I’ve been feeling funkalicious and not in a good way. Yesterday was the worst. I got home from the gym, got the kids ready and off for school and then nothing.

Nothing.

I was done.

The small amount of energy I could muster was wasted on scanning social media.

BAD IDEA.

When I’m in a bad mood I need to stay away from things like Facebook because everything annoys the crap out of me. Normally I couldn’t care less about the stupid political post my friend shared or the insensitive joke a relative posted, but yesterday everything was bugging me.

Let’s just say don’t engage in heated debates when you’re feeling moody.

Just don’t do it.

I finally decided I had enough so…

I tried to focus on a few projects but I couldn’t do.

I tried to reach out to a few friends but I felt like a bother.

And it just got worse and worse throughout the day.

I didn’t even eat dinner with the family. I just pulled out leftovers and told them I needed a break. Afterwards the Husband took the 10-year-Old to soccer while I walked with the 4-Year-Old to the park.

Thankfully he made a friend there and even though I didn’t feel like talking I reached out to the other mom and we chatted for a little while. It was nice.

Once I got him home and put him to bed the only thing I could muster for my #loving39 project on IG was this.

Today I decided I couldn’t do it again. I forced myself to hit the ground running and once I accomplished a few things I started to feel better but I’m still not 100 percent.

Thankfully the Husband and I scheduled a babysitter tonight. We need to spend some time together, too. The older the kids get the harder it is just to have a conversation in their presence. Has anyone else noticed that?

I have one telling me about school and the other showing me his drawings. It’s like a constant stream of information and sometimes I just can’t sift through all of it. At least 2-3 times I day I have to say, “Wait a minute. Your brother is talking.”

It’s like they don’t hear each other!

Anyway, I don’t want to be a downer I just needed to get that all out of my head. It’s so much better than eating my feelings.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    we are on the same wavelength. I hope I was not a friend who made you feel like a bother – – although I confess today I might not have noticed I’ve been unbelievably grumpy all damn day :-)

    Aww, I know how you feel. Days like that really suck, especially when there are more than one in a row. I love the Family Guy vid. My kids (17 & 20 now) think it’s the funniest thing ever and they actually do that routine to me on a regular basis. I hope you and the husband have a really nice time together tonight. =)

    My kids are the exact same way – one in middle school and one in high school. I will stop one and ask – do you hear your brother talking? Or shhhh, your sister is talking…. I don’t get it either!

    I love that scene with Stewie! It proves that we all go through this and we all just crack sometimes. Funks happen and we pull ourselves out because we are the mom. It is what we do. Take a break, let a bit of time pass, and then do something productive that is also fun. It might get you going again.

    Had a very similar day a few days ago – tried to make myself feel better and went to master swim only to throw a tantrum because I didnt want to actually do the work and decided I should just get out of the pool and go home. It was pathetic – and for NO reason… or at least not a reason that Im aware of.

    My kids totally talk over top of each other ALL THE TIME. Its very frustrating.

    It isn’t being a downer, it is being human. We all go through a stage but making time for each other is the best

    Sorry you’ve been feeling so blah lately! I actually deleted my facebook account a couple months ago, because I realized how negatively it affected my mood. Seriously, one of the best things I’ve ever done :)

    And yeah, my kids talk over each other all.the.time. sigh….

    I just LOVE your honesty!! It’s SO easy to just post all the good stuff, or to sugar coat to make your life look perfect. I’ve been reading you blog for 7 years now and what keeps me coming back is your vulnerability and honesty. Thank You Roni!! I get the exact same way sometimes where my insecurities get the better of me. But it’s important to allow yourself to really FEEL and let it move through you. . .and then you pick yourself up (like you always do) and keep going.

    Oh boy…I know all about those types of days. No energy, feeling negative, knowing you are feeling that way and yet not being able to pull yourself up out of it…HATE those funks. Thankfully they seem to go away with a good night’s sleep. And getting going immediately helps immensely. As others have said, and I agree, thanks for keeping it real.

    Ahhh, yes. We have 4 kids – ages 6 to 12. They all have something to say. They all want our complete attention. One cuts the other one off. One starts finishing the other person’s story. One runs in the room excited to death about something while the other is in the middle of telling something. The older 2 are getting better at being nosy. We sometimes think we are having a private convo in the kitchen when in the living room we hear, “Who said that to you?!” Lol It’s annoying, overwhelming, and we’re learning to work on their respect towards each other and watching more of what we say around them if we don’t want them to know something. Sadly, we are too boggled to remember to tell each other what we wanted to say when we finally get in a private room. LOL
