If found please return to.......

I seem to have lost my get up and go, it left the building some time ago.

I'm not feeling on top form, nothing specific, just a bit meh.

I'm managing to produce a cooked meal every day that one is needed, though shock horror I did use a bought pie one day. 

It depends what shift hubby is whether or not I cook, I do if he's on the early or day shift,  but when he's on lates he doesn't finish until 10ish and doesn't want to eat that late.

I'm managing to keep us in clean clothes and this week I changed the sheets, I didn't do that last week.

Apart from those few tasks the house is deteriorating around me, we are neither of us very tidy at the best of times and this definitely isn't the best of times.

Other stuff isn't getting done, I sit on the sofa looking at the mess, I can see what needs doing but I'm incapable of rousing myself enough to do anything, apart from knitting/crochet.

The some of the family have decided to get together to scatter MIL's ashes, unfortunately they have chosen to do it the one day hubby can't make it, despite him saying it was the only day he couldn't do!

Questions are now being asked about items missing from MIL's belongings, jewellery etc, well I know where one piece is, it's on my finger and has been since October 2014, when she gave all her daughters in law a piece to remember her by.

It's not surprising that you are not on top form with all you have had to deal with lately.
Be kind to yourself. The housework ain't going nowhere and will still be there when you're ready to do it.
Sending gentle hugs.

I understand exactly how you feel. I always think during stressful times adrenalin kicks in to get us through whatever we have to deal with. When it's all over and we finally stop to take a breath, not feeling like doing anything is natures way of telling our body to rest and recuperate. I second what Sheila said. Be kind to yourself. xx

From Margie in Toronto - you have been running on adrenalin for so long with all you've had to deal with these past few weeks and now your body has just crashed. Just do what has to be done to keep you both going and use whatever help or shortcuts are available to get through it. You need to rest and recover and take it as easy as possible. Take care.

Don't be too hard on yourself, you have both been through a lot in the past few months,and you need to rest, the house will get sorted, stop worrying about it. The main thing is to keep yourself and hubby well. It's hard to ignore families, but if you can it help.

You have done brilliantly looking after everyone just lately. I think your body and mind just need a few days rest. Household chores and housework can wait. Time to take care of you! X
