The Road to Recovery

No, I am not talking about addiction.

My household suffered a horrific sweep of a stomach virus this past week.

Like, horrific. My kids, myself, my husband. Now my husband is complaining that he has a cold as well.

I lost basically a whole week of work which means a whole week of money. I’m still on probation at this job so no sick days and the like for me.

Being so sick and sitting around doing nothing has not been good for my personal mental health. I am feeling so stuck, so aimless. At this age I thought I would be in my career already but I’m still finding odd jobs to fill the gaps. I’d like to go back to school but right now my education is not a priority. I know it’s never too late to go back to school and blah blah blah but I still feel pretty meh about my current situation.

I like my new job, so far, but it’s not as intriguing as I wanted it to be. Maybe I’m detaching because there’s a strong possibility I’ll have to find a new job in a year anyway or maybe it just really isn’t as awesome as I wanted.

Maybe my expectations are too high.

This mood does NOT help in terms of writing and I am so overrun and overwhelmed by life that I am having a really hard time slowing down and just doing something I like.

I also need a haircut.

Had the same thing just happen to my house as well. It’s sort of the worst. Hope all have or are recovering well though!

We’re all alive again and able to keep our food in our bellies so I’m pretty stoked on that development 😀 Thanks for the kind thoughts! I hope it stays away from both our houses now 🙂
