Life as a sine curve

I always thought that there was only one direction you go in at any given time. You know, if something really bad happened, then you got over it and there was only one way to go -- up. A wonderful 45° line leading away from the x and y axes, up and out of feeling bad. But life's not like that. Trite as it sounds, it's two steps forward and one step back. It's the round peaks and valleys of a sine curve. Up for a bit then down for a bit. And I'm a bit down.

Can't quite pin down why. A number of things all weighing on my mind at the same time. The kinds of things that if they happened individually, I'd be able to swat them away like mosquitoes, but all together they're too heavy to move. I wish I had something pithy or funny to say today, but I don't. I'm thinking this mood will pass soon on its own. If not, I guess there's always tequila.

  1. I so know how you feel. And I wish I could help. But I know from experience that not much helps but time, at least not for me.

    I hope you get your smile back soon. If you need me you know where to find me. :-)

  2. I have those days too. I must say, I've never thought of trying my friend Jose (as in Cuervo!) to make me feel better! The last time I hung out with Jose, I got pregnant with Quinn! Might not be the best of things to try!

    Hope you're back to your perky self soon!

  3. I've felt that way as well. I think when we become mothers we tend to put our well-being aside in order to take care of everyone else in our lives. Make sure you take care of yourself as well, even if it's in a very small way. Take care!

  4. oh, i understand that mood all too well. Today was one of those days when reaching for the absolut (i'm afraid the tequila is not my friend) was necessary. i'd love to go back to the sunrise - the day started with so much promise ;)

    hope things improve for you...
