Bleh, Bleh, Bleh

I usually try to make sure  my blog posts are written in an uplifting, positive way,  but I’ve been having a weird couple of days this week. For really no reason at all, I’ve been feeling pretty bleh. Like I am just in a minor bad mood with no cause.

The annoying part is that I WANT to be a really good mood. The sun is shining, I’ve been working out a lot this week and we’re even going on vacation to Breckenridge this weekend. *SIGH*

It’s always frustrating when your emotions don’t obey your mind. Like “Uh, hey there feelings, why don’t ya liven up a bit there….you don’t have much to be down about!”

Days like this make me have a lot of respect for people who work in places like amusement parks or pre-schools who are always energetic, positive and social. How do they do it?!

I guess the best thing I can do it just ride it out and try to be introspective to figure out why I am feeling this way. And hopefully a few days out in the Colorado sunshine will perk my spirits up. :)

Do you ever have days where you just feel bleh for no reason?

Breaking Out of the Routine

We’ve officially been living in Lake Tahoe for almost two months. Life is settling down and we’re getting into a daily routine.


Wake up > shower > drive to work with coffee/radio > work, work, work > drive home > stop at grocery store > make dinner > watch Luke do the dishes :) > read/watch tv > go to sleep.


Wake up > have coffee and breakfast > drive to mountain > ski, ski, ski > drive home > pick up dinner > take a loooong steam shower > relax > pass out from exhaustion.

You’d think after all the stress of moving, I’d  be happy to welcome a regular routine, but actually, part of me misses all that excitement I felt during our move.

It’s not that I’m not thrilled with our life here, it’s just getting back to a more “normal” existence is leaving me a little desirous of something exciting to happen.

My mom says I’ve always been like this. As a child I used to tell her “Mom I have NOTHING to look forward to!!” even though I had plenty of fun things going on.

Luckily, I have some events on the horizon that should shake my routine up a bit.

– Next Saturday, Luke and I are having a date night in Reno. We’re going to the Adam Carolla comedy show and then staying the night at the casino.

– In February, two of our dear friends are coming to visit from Florida for the weekend.

– In March, we are going to Breckenridge to visit our friend who also just started working for Vail Resorts and of course skiing.

– In May, I am going to Vegas with some of my college girlfriends. I’ve never been with friends (always for work) so I’m super excited  about this one!

What do you do when you want to break out of your regular routine?
