It is Saturday morning. I did manage to finally get to sleep last night, in my bed even. Gone With the Wind was on last night, and while I love the movie, it is great to fall asleep to. There is something about old movies that are comforting to me.
As I was having coffee this morning, I was thinking about what I am going to do today. It is a holiday weekend, and we have no plans. Mostly because we don’t like to people. The city is having a block party today, but not really worth going to if you don’t have any money, and we don’t get paid until next week. I don’t even have the desire to watch the parade on the 4th like we do every year. Mostly because it causes me so much pain being on the concrete in the heat for a couple of hours.
But I wanted to talk about today….
I realized I’m in a rut. Day in and day out I do the same thing. Routine is great, don’t get me wrong. But when routine leads to a rut, it messes with my emotions. I get bored and then I get depressed. I have to make a strong effort to find a way out of the rut. Since my rosary supplies have not come yet (I found out the items are coming from CHINA! Wont be here until AUGUST and I ordered in JUNE!), I think I might do some painting. I’m still reading my book, but I have to reign myself in, otherwise I get carried away and binge read.
How do you prevent yourself from getting into a rut? Does being in a rut mess with your emotions too?
