You'd Say I'm Putting You On

I'm tired.   So that is what Talk Talk Tuesday will be about today.  I stay up too late, I worry about things I can't control, and I allow myself to get stuck in routines that exhaust me through sheer repetition.   When I'm tired I get so moody and tend towards pessimism.   I can do something about this!  I can go to bed earlier at times.  I can give myself permission to NOT know what is going to happen next or give myself permission to find out, even if the answer isn't what I want to hear.  And I can try to shake things up a bit!  Sure, like always, easier said than done....but it can be done.
 I'm tired of love; I'm still more tired of rhyme; but money gives me pleasure all the time.
-Hilaire Belloc

So...Talk Talk to me.  What are you tired of and what are you going to do about it?

I'm tired of a situation in my extended family. I don't know yet what I'm going to do about it, but eventually I'll post about it.

Secret: Ah, family stuff...that can be tricky at best. I will look forward to hearing about it.

I'm tired of a lot of stuff. So I wrote a whole post about it. :D


Alright, alright, I read your comment to my post already. I actually read this yesterday and intended to reply but I probably got distracted by something shiny. Sorry aboot that.

I am tired of worrying about my cat. Things could be so much worse with her, but I'm worrying about every meow and every other sound. I want her upcoming surgery to be the solution to everything, but the pessimist (and Murphy's Law believer) in me keeps worrying that there'll be something else.

I need to realize I can only work on the problem at hand, and whatever will happen will happen. She still eats, drinks, sleeps, plays and jumps up on window sills to look at the neighbors.

I'm tired of being unhappy. Jeez, it's like I ask for it, look for it. And likely I do. Be happy... yeah, well, screw you (talking to me). Sigh. Honestly, and this sounds horrible, I look sometimes to other bloggers to see that I'm not the only one with problems. And I needed your post today. How sad is that? I want you to feel well, but I'm glad I have a moment of togetherness in semi-misery. Dear me...

I'm tired of the guy being in pain. When I get that way and can't sleep. Sometimes it helps me to read to escape and take my mind off of crap that I can't help or doesn't matter. I'm sure you know that trick, though...

3GK: I liked your post :-)
I can fully understand distraction...especially by something shiny!

Tara: It seems natural to worry about your cat, whom you love, but at the same time I can see where it would be exhausting. It is never the worrying that saves anyone, but rather good practical actions...all of which you have taken! Give yourself a pat on the back for being such a good friend to Skittles.

NoRegrets: Nah, we don't seek out the misery, but some of us are certainly more susceptible to its influence.
It helps me to read about how other people are feeling too. And if I write anything that is helpful, even if it is just a little schadenfreude, I'm good with that!

Churlita: I'm so glad to read of how well The Guy is recovering!
And you are so right...I am a big believer in running away to books. Seems like lately I've had a little more trouble than usual escaping, but I'm sure it will pass.
