A Day in the Life

I felt a little down today. It started off with my sleeping through two alarms and not having enough time to make lunch for my Hubby to take to work with him. But he was gracious about it, and I did have enough time to jump in the shower and get ready to begin my work day.

Yes, I’m working now! 🙂 It’s only a few hours a day, but it’s still something. I grade student essays from my computer at home and give them a score based on certain criteria. It makes me think a lot and sometimes gives me a headache, but I’m grateful for the opportunity. I really struggle with working because of my depression, anxiety, and OCD…(with this job I’m having a difficult time with my perfectionism), but I’m trying my best. You can be praying, though, because the job only lasts a month or two…and then I’ll need a new one. Thank you!

The day got a little better after work: I took our dog, Daisy, for a nice walk…it was beautiful outside! I was also able to sit a talk for a few minutes with one of our neighbors. It’s amazing how much a little fresh air can help.

I did some laundry, washed some dishes, and job-searched until my Hubby got home from work. And now it’s time to make dinner and probably watch some TV. Not an overly exciting day, but at least I’m feeling a little better than I was this morning. I’m going to try to get to bed at a decent time so I can start fresh tomorrow morning.

How was YOUR day? Was it good, bad, or somewhere in between? I’d like to hear, so feel free to share in the comments!

  1. My day has been full of exam preparation which has been good and bad. I can’t remember if I’ve commented before under this new blog (it’s mathsy British Z!) but I enjoy your posts!
    Also something stuck out to me in what you wrote – at the end when you briefly discussed the practical tasks of washing etc it reminded me of a depression pamphlet I read where these kinds of tasks can be really beneficial as they give a sense of achievement. Yes these things are crucial anyway (must wash!) but it’s still relevant 🙂
    Have a lovely day

    1. Thank you so much for reading, and for your comment! I hope that your exam prep is more good than bad. It can definitely be a stressful time…but you’ve got it! And thank you for the thoughts on how practical tasks can be beneficial for depression. I’ll try to focus on a sense of achievement when performing them. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. I was feeling a little down too as I had a rejection for a short story I’ve been working so hard on. I told the family over dinner and my sweet 12 year boy told me not to give up, just to keep writing 🙂 So I wrote another one this morning. Even if it’s all for nothing, I think the trying is always so important (and the bits of encouragement)!


    1. I’m sorry to hear about your story being rejected, but I’m so glad that you wrote another one! And your son is definitely right: don’t give up. You are trying your best. That’s what I have to keep telling myself with my mini-job…it’s difficult for me, but I’m doing the best that I can. Thank you for sharing!
