I can't tell if it's the blue mass that is hanging over our city on the radar or the sickness the kids have been fighting. If it's the massive amount of snow and wind or the lack of sunlight. If it's that I haven't been out of the house since Tuesday or whatever, I've been placing myself in isolation lately.
While, yes, I have been basically locked in the house for several days because of the horrible weather and children who are under the weather, even more so I have been placing myself in a emotional isolation. I've been pushing everyone around me away the past couple of days. Yes, I've been locked in this house with my kids, but I haven't really interacted with them like I should have been. The TV has been on almost continuously under the pretense that "they need to rest to get better" and I've been absorbed with myself. I've been picking stupid fights with my husband (sorry, babe) and sulking. Housework and dishes have been left undone, laundry is piling up in the basement, our house is a mess. I just can't seem to get it together.
But it's over. I'm pulling myself out. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? Tomorrow is going to be a good day - fun filled activities with the kids, catching up on the mess, no more moping. Tomorrow is going to be a better day.
