Something to which you were looking forward is now over for another year. I think your reaction is perfectly understandable.
November is kind of an Eeyore month. And you know, a tantrum isn't such a bad idea. How about if you fling yourself onto say, the bed and kicking and screaming?
(((hugs))) to you. It will get better.
I usually like November. I hope I shake this and get to.
I can so relate. I would come over and clean for you if I could!
Some of that I got done, at least.
::::hugs you, probably because I need a hug myself::::
I'd offer to help clean too if I were local.
Making a dent in the mess probably did the most toward improving my mood.
I completely understand that! :D I often have that same problem and solution. :)
What I am is a crabby 4-year-old. I'm bored by what I'm doing, but don't want to do anything else, either.
Oh man, I so completely know how that feels. I associate it strongly with both being tired and being depressed. To the degree that I can shake it at all, I usually shake it by going for a walk and listening to a podcast or some music — even if I can't really *enjoy* it because the pleasure receptors are all off, at least I'm doing something that's physically good for me. And sometimes strenuous physical activity can lift a depression.
It's also comfortingly low-demand: Very few decisions to make, at least of the kind that feel overwhelming enough to induce helplessness in a depressed mind. Once I'm outside, robot-body takes over and things get at least a little better. I've gotten through entire bad winters that way, even if it means slogging through knee-deep snow.
Good luck. Depression bites big hairy asses.
Cleaning up the kitchen served much of that same function, thank goodness.
It sounds like you got an incredible amount done. Congratulations!
I don't even want to LOOK in my own living room today, and I have to get it cleaned out before tomorrow morning so that we can finally get our pinball machine sold/picked up.
We have people coming over on Friday, so I need to get it done.
Reaching out - what a great idea! HUGS!!! Tomorrow will be better! I said so!
Oh man, do I know how that feels. *hugs*
I want to go home, put on footies and just veg. I can't, not the least reason being that I'd roast in Texas even in November.
(As an aside, your icon is awesome. May I steal it?)
Sure! I totally yoinked it from someone at some ponit, and I think it's credited, so please pass that along if you would. It seems to sum up my life pretty much perfectly.
Hope you're feeling better.
Lower yourself gently to the floor in a tantrum?
Alternately, what I do when I'm feeling this way is fold my arms in front of myself, and sulkily flap them against my chest while pouting and making a stereotypically childish noise of grumpiness.
It works wonders.
I've been known to stamp my feet on occasion.
You and everyone else worth knowing. ;) :)
Well, I love you and I do understand the overwhelming urge to sit down and not clean. So I send unto you HUGS! (The warm and snuggly kind even!) Hope you feel fresher and more positive tomorrow.

Re: Love & Hugs - Both!
Fortunately I was smart enough to clean!
Hang in there and remember you are made of awesomesauce.
Thank you. That really helps.
Sending hugs and love and kisses and I hope you feel better soon. This is just a low energy week period, I think. Go lock yourself in the cleanest room of your house and pretend the rest of it doesn't exist. ;)
None were clean at the time, but when I came back from dinner to a clean kitchen, I almost cried with relief.
My crabby 4-year-old moments are usually caused by low blood sugar; a small snack (cheese and crackers, PB & celery, that sort of thing) usually sets me right as rain.
*hugs!* still help. :) *hugs!*
I, too, have the November blahs. 1 AM rolled around, I was like, "hey, I'll go to bed" and my brain was like "HOW ABOUT YOU TRY SELF-LOATHING INSTEAD" and I was like "but... no?" and it was like "TOO BAD" so I stayed awake until 4AM hating my body and my lack of creativity. Good times.
And it's carried over into today, as well. *kicks it*
Best of luck to you getting past today and into a better tomorrow. :)
Poor dear. Hope it departs soon. It's weird for me because I usually like November.
The month will improve.
I always hate it when I have a random day filled with emotional suck at the start of any discreet time peiod. It just feels like it's *got* to mean the whole (week, month, year) is going to be awful. It rarely works out this way.
Here's to a better tomorrow!
I am determined not to allow this to eat all of November!!
Oh no, is this post-con depression? I hope it lifts really quickly.
It was a real pleasure meeting you and getting to have dinner with you.
I think it's partially post-con depression. And it was great getting to meet you, too!
You are the absolute best. You made me cry happy tears.
It was wonderful to see you! Also, luvvs.
I was so glad to see you, too!!
