Leesa’s Life

Archive for September 2005

Have you ever had one of those days when you just don’t care about anything? You don’t care if you get out of bed in the morning. You don’t care if you get dressed? You just don’t care.

I’m having one of those days. Or, I guess a better thing would be to say that I’m having one of those weeks. I’ve just not felt right. I don’t give a rat’s behind whether I do anything worthwhile or not. I just want to lay in bed and sleep. I don’t want to watch tv, get on the computer, live my life. Nothing. Even when I do get up and do something, it doesn’t seem to go right and that just makes me even more depressed. And, of course, when I feel this way I also don’t care whether I follow my Nutrisystem diet or not. I’ve gone so far off plan these past few days that when I hopped on the scale this morning it showed a 3 lb. weight gain! And that just makes me even more depressed about everything. It’s an endless cycle. Hubby even told me this morning that I’m no fun anymore which makes me feel even worse because now I’m bringing other people into this crap!

I’m hoping that I wake up one of these days and things finally look better and I’ll snap out of this funk. I feel like one of those cartoons where you see the little black cloud hovering over the kids head and they are the only one who’s getting rained on. Go away little black rain cloud. I’m ready for some sunshine!


I just can’t believe how expensive the gasoline has gotten since Hurricane Katrina hit. In my hometown, the price ranges anywhere from $3.12/gal to $3.30/gal. And that’s if the station even still has any gas to buy. I know of three stations that have already run out and have no idea when they’ll be getting more. Scary. My husband drives a lot in his business and if the prices keep going up, we don’t know what’s going to happen. If he can’t purchase diesel anywhere close, it could really lead to major business problems. I guess we’ll just keep plugging away, doing what needs to be done though. Hopefully things will get better soon.

I’ve also been watching the news about the people in the Gulf states and wishing that I could do something to help. I’ve already made a donation to the Red Cross and I also received an email from my son’s teacher today saying that the kids were going to be gathering water and nonperishable food supplies to send down there. I just wish I could do more.
