I have been in a funky kind of mood this past week.
A little bored with the routine of life right now. I get up, eat breakfast, read, eat lunch, read, make dinner, read/watch tv, and go to bed. It's very dull.
And due to the boredom, I've developed a severe case of ennui.
That's French for "bored out of my ever living mind."
This is the underwhelmed part of my life.
Then we have the overwhelmed part of my life.
The part when I realize, "Holy crap! We got accepted to our dream job and will be moving overseas soon!"
That same part of me is exuberant over the fact that I get to move to the Middle East but, is FREAKING OUT over the fact that I have to first move to Canada.
Why is that so weird to me?
My only experience with Canada was a little surreal. A family vacation with my aunts/uncles and four cousins, to Niagra Falls, culminating in my cousin Joseph climbing our hotel room wall like spiderman and punching a hole through the wall.
Yeah, we were cool.
What was even cooler was when my cousin, Kyle, decided he could fix the dry wall by bunching up part of a cardboard pizza box and using chewed gum to "put it back together."
Needless to say, it didn't work.
And we got in trouble.
Canada was a weird place for me.
It's going to be even weirder when I live just north of the land of Fruits and Nuts (ie Seattle,) and in a virtual frozen tundra (did I mention I own NO closed toed shoes? Yeah. I'm a doomed Icicle.)
So, in a mathematical sense, my being underwhelmed + overwhelmed = just plain ol' whelmed. And I think I'm okay with that.
It's just a strange place to be, that's all.
As an announcement, I apologize for the glitchy postings earlier today. I had scheduled six postings and just put today's date on them all (thinking I would surely write them in full and schedule them correctly,) and then I decided to go and take a mini sabbatical from writing to revamp my creative juices.
Imagine my horror when I noticed I had "posted," all of these posts that said things like "tell them about my neuroticness in stores." or "blogging book goal 26 Crazy Love, (and that's it!)"
I'm sorry! They really were supposed to be full posts and I just completely stayed away from my dashboard for a week (which was awesome because I got so much school work done!) and I totally forgot about them! They will be reposted in entirety in the coming weeks.
On the other hand, ya'll really impressed me with your commenting abilities. How you figured something nice to say on a 4 word nonsense post, is beyond me, but I appreciate it!
My hubby did a guest post on Bound to Books about the book "For Men Only!" I've been asking him to read this book (because I loved the companion "For Women Only," and I figured this one would be good too) and he finally obliged.
He's got great insight to what he's learned and how you should go about discussing these things with your the man in your life!
