Basically, when you are under that kind of pressure, you start to take a serious look at your life. You start wondering how in the world you can get all your crooked little ducks in a row, right?
With that being said, you already know that sometimes, I am a terrible person. In more ways than one. Well, here is more proof of terribleness. Sometimes, it feels like I encounter other girls who appear to be a "me-upgrade." Do you ever feel like that? (Please say yes). Like if you find a vintage coach wallet at a thrift store, there is a girl out there who not only finds the wallet, she also finds the matching handbag. And it just stinks. And what's worse is that these girls are perfectly nice people. Nice girls. Friendly girls. Sweethearts. So, it's not like you can say, "Well, she may have the handbag, but at least I'm not a jerkface."
So, then came the glumps. That's right. I've been feeling a bit glumpy lately. One morning, the only prayer I could muster was, "Lord, I think I've gone crazy."
It is funny/interesting/sad how you can enjoy something so much that it takes away from other aspects of your life. I love blogging. I love reading blogs. I love staying connected through Facebook, but honestly- I'm not always good at finding the balance. It has been several days since I've taken Scarlett out on the bike- and we love going out on the bike. It has been weeks since I've finished a book or made a new craft. And I LOVE books and crafts. Weeks. Meh.
And after my "I've gone crazy" prayer, He said, "Maybe you should go a week without the internet."
To which I replied, "You want me to spend my FAIR BREAK, at home ALONE with no internet?"
"You heard me."
So, that's what I did...or am doing. I don't really know what giving up the internet has to do with feeling glumpy or comparing myself to the "cool" girls, but I'm willing to give it a shot nonetheless, and I hope I can find some answers along the way.
So, you see-for the past 5 days or so, the posts that have shown up were scheduled- written several days before they actually showed up (pretty cool, huh?). I can't really tell you how it's going or what I've learned because, honestly, I typed this up the day before my "fast."
Are you feeling glumpy lately? What's the plan?
See you tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 2nd)*
Love and no more glumps,
*I typed this one roughly a week ago, and it feels like time-travel.
