I have been so busy lately! It seems that I have been working non-stop! And then I come home and try to sleep and my leafblowing man is trying like mad to get rid of the leaves and I think he is fighting a losing battle and is depriving me of much needed sleep. Have you ever noticed that if you don’t sleep well that it really screws with the rest of your life? I mean if I don’t sleep well I am grouchy as a mean ol’ bear. Then I tend to be hungrier and of course I don’t eat the things that are good for me during those times because I am trying to usually raise my mood and what does that? Carbs usually! It’s like nature’s Prozac or something. Instant seratonin elevator. Then there is the crash! And there goes the mood again.
I was talking about moods and foods with a friend at work recently. We discussed how low blood sugar can really cause the grumps, too. Shove a piece of sugar in our mouths when we’re feeling that way and it is like an instant mood picker-upper. Have you ever noticed that about yourself? Next time you’re feeling meaner than a snake, ask yourself when the last time you ate was. You might need to bring up your blood sugar levels.
I am wondering what people are doing for Thanksgiving. I will be working. Holidays are pretty much just another day for me. I mean, I celebrate them in my heart and stuff but as far as the work-week goes, I don’t get time off for them. Work is supposed to be getting us some food but I have no idea what. I asked and got a terse response that yes they would be getting food and that was it. Ok….Thanks. 🙂
Hope everyone is doing well. I am much more positive than I have been in a while. I think my creative streak kicked in and it’s been like nuts!
