Stir Crazy Today!

I absolutely love working from home!  I wouldn't trade this for anything....

BUT... do you ever have days where you just feel like you're going to crawl out of your own skin?  Where you are just so ansy you aren't really sure which end is up???

That is how I am feeling today.  It doesn't happen very often... but when it does, it drives me insane.

I am a home-body.  I love being at home.  Just every now and again I get this overwhelming feeling like the walls are closing in on me.  I know it's my own fault.  I rarely leave the house.  I should get out and meet some local people. I should join a group... or get some sort of a hobby outside the home.  I think about doing these things... then tomorrow comes and I love being at home again...lol

Today though is just one of those days.  Maybe it's the women hormone thing...lol  That could be it.  Isn't it amazing how up and down we can be at times?  Too bad we can't really figure out exactly what it is we want... or maybe that's just me.

Working from home has allowed me to not have to go outside the home to make money... it's allowed me to be at home full time for my boys.  It's allowed me to pay the bills.  It's allowed me to keep food on the table.... etc....  But somedays I go a little stir crazy.

I've been asked in the past if there is anything negative about working from home... I guess that would be it.  Working from home means you are always at home.  90% of me says that's a GREAT thing though.  Wow... can we say I make NO sense today???

I guess we all want our cake and eat it too.... or at least I do.  Or, maybe that's not what I want.... or... maybe that's what I already have.  Do we ever really know?

One thing I know for sure is my kids are my world.  Sure, they drive me batty somedays... but isn't that their job? Think of how boring it would be if they were perfect all the time... not much excitement there!

Even though I have days like today... I still wouldn't trade it in.  I have my little insane moments every now and again... but eventually I come back down and am grounded again...lol

Now to find an outside the home group... what do I like to do outside the home?  What type of groups are available?  Hmmmmmm... suggestions?

  4. I am so a homebody. Today I am ansy. The reason? My daughter is a day late delivering her child -- my 4th grandblessing. Makes me ansy. Seriously, I do know what you mean. I find a few hours working or reading at Panera, a walk around the mall or meeting a friend for lunch makes all the difference. It doesn't happen often enough to make it a habit. And I always wonder, what if I don't want to get out for meetings." It's the live, being a homebody. Sometimes we just need a break.
