Having A Blue Day

Do you ever have one of those days when just about any and everything brings tears to your eyes. I call them "blue days" and they pop up a few times a year for no known reason. Usually if I am overtired. I have been having very strange dreams lately- like wackadoodle dreams- so I don't think I have been getting a very restful sleep the last few weeks actually. A day or two later I will look back at my blue day as an emotional cleanse. But today is one of those unexpected blue days for me. Just like every other time, I have no idea why. I was turning into the grocery store and suddenly started bawling. So I had to keep driving until I finished my mid-drive crisis before I could go grocery shopping. I'm not even crying over important things. Actually, come to think of it, this all started last night. I was flipping channels and caught part of Kendra's wedding on E (talk about dirty little secrets....watching crappier than crappy TV is my middle name apparently!), and got misty-eyed when she talked about having a baby and being married. So maybe that's my problem. I'm not jealous- I just want that too. Well, not the give birth to a baby part. But the hub and family part. Sheesh, is this a rambling post or what?!

So to avoid making it all doom and gloom around here, I'm including a few pictures of my baby girl. Isn't she just the cutest! She was "helping" me in the garden by sitting there just looking purty. That's her speciality.





And here she is taking a nap on the den sofa. "This pillow and blankie are for me, right?!" (I made that ugly blanket in high school home-ec. My dad was going through a box of something and found it and thought Sadie needed it. Because the baby needs a cushy spot to rest her princess head, of course!!






Come back tomorrow because I made bread tonight. And you are not going to want to miss learning about the world's easiest homemade bread recipe that requires almost no work at all! Oh and did I mention it is make-you-weak-in-the-knees fabulous?! I promise to have dry eyes tomorrow, sweet friends!

Sorry you had a crappy day! I know what you mean - some days are just *blue* for no reason at all!

Jane said...

Awww, Miss Sadie looks adorable! Sorry you are having a down day - hope you are feeling back up to par soon enough! Hugs!

Miss Sadie is adorable! And I hate those days - they're so draining.

Hate those days. I have one or two a year. For some reason, a good cry in the shower is my cure. My Mother used to call it a good cleansing cry.

Sarah Ann said...

You think that's bad?! Sometimes I tear up during CARTOONS. At a super sappy sad part. Pathetic and with no reason whatsoever! =/
I hope your blues leave you soon. Everyone deserves to smile.

There really is such a thing as a good cry...and sometimes we just need to get it all out! After a good nights sleep, hope you are feeling better!

I normally have those days when I have PMS. Just cry for no apparent reason.
Wish I knew some nice single boys. Why are they so hard to find? I've got several girls I'm on the lookout for. I'll let you know if I find any!!
And Sadie looks beautiful. The most perfectly groomed pooch ever.
