those days.. a rambling of sorts.

you know those days? Those days.

Ugh, they are the worst.
I feel like I have been having "one of those days" for a few weeks.
I can't pinpoint what causes this, or what I can do to help it... I just know...
I am having them.

Last week was a string of  "those days". Each day had something worse than the day before it. Or it just sort of piled on top of it and just made for a worse day each day. Either way, it was a little miserable. I didn't have to go through any deaths or anything horrific, per say. It was just one thing after another.

This Monday was the build-up of that entire week. It was one of those days where you go to type and do some work and each letter you type is the wrong letter, and when you go back to try to fix it, you almost keep typing the same letter as before until you begin banging on each individual key on the keyboard as you type before you think about throwing your computer against the wall in your office and quit.

Monday was horrible. No doubt about it.

Yesterday wasn't too bad, but it wasn't too good either. I did enjoy time with a friend and that made yesterday turn out okay.

Today hasn't been particularly bad. But it hasn't been particularly great either.
It's pouring outside. I am blessed to be inside, in shelter, away from the blistering cold of the rain drops that are pouring themselves all over the place.
I have my heater on under my desk and I am content with that.

But then... then something comes in and tries to steal that "contentment" (if you can even call it that). Whether it's work piling up, or having an error you made out of ignorance in the issue sort of blow up in your face and leaving you feeling completely underqualified and as if you SHOULD just up and quit and leave and never come back.

That's where I'm at right now. I have decided to take a short break, and that is nice. But, I need to go out into the world. I need to take my dog out in that pouring rain. I need to move and be and DO. But, I don't want to.

I simply want to go home. I want to sit at home in the comfort of my sweatpants and my husband's sweatshirt I wear every day after work. I want to just sit and BE. But.. I can't. 

and that? That sort of sucks.

But, I will try to remember: I am blessed. I have a job. I have a car. I have friends. I have a husband. I have a home. Maybe all of these things (other than my husband! haha) aren't exactly what I want.. but they are something that many don't have and would die for.

so, yes. I have been having those days piled upon more of those days.. but I am blessed.

Trying to soak that in.


  1. Just stumbled across your blog--I love it! I love finding Christian bloggers such as yourself. I am excited to follow your blogging adventures! I am new to the blogging scene, follow me at :) xo-Jess

    1. Hi Jessica! Thanks for stopping by and following :) Nice to "meet" you!! I am excited to follow your blog too :) Have a great day!!

  2. Aw Jo! I'm so sorry, but I also feel like you accurately described the past few weeks for me. I've had the exact same sort of days, and the only thing I want to do is stay home and hide in my pajamas.

    I need to see you again!

    1. I need to see YOU again! seriously. let's plan this!! I have an interview for my master's on May 21st and will be in Dublin. Maybe I could find you then?! We will see :)

      And I am sorry you have been in the same boat, but grateful for friends who understand. Love you friend!

  3. I feel you girl. You described everything that I've been going through and feeling lately. I try and do my best to see the blessing in it, but the frustration/discouragement/bitterness clouds my view.

    Hoping that it turns around for you soon!

    1. Thanks so much for your encouragement! You're a gem. I am sorry you have been feeling this way too.. it's no fun at all. It's so hard to find the blessing sometimes. Hoping and praying things turn around for you too, pretty lady!! :)
