This seems weird...

I am almost always a "happy go lucky", "look at the bright side", "find the good in every situation" sort of person, you know the type. Yes, that's usually how I am. For some reason, I have felt weird this week. The fronts of my legs feel heavy and achy. I'm so seldom sick, that I don't even know the warning signs, so maybe it's just my system trying to fight off something.

Anyway... today when I went to the grocery store, I felt like I was in a box. It was an unusual feeling.

Not claustrophobic, exactly, but more like everything has an "edge" to it. I can see the frames of my glasses more than usual. The grocery cart seemed bigger. The metal pieces between the windows on the car seem so, so...close and constricting. It's was just weird. On top of everything seeming weird, the parking lot where I shop is on such a slant, that I have to wedge my foot against the cart to load up the car. Then the weird feeling started on the drive home and when I brought the groceries in the house to put them away, I felt like they were taking away the floor space that I needed.

Today is "senior" day at my grocery store and I suppose the baggers are used to only putting a few items in each bag, due to the weight. My groceries were bagged in 21 plastic bags (some were even doubled bagged. One bag had a chocolate bar and a bag of paper cups in it. I recycle these bags, so I don't mind that, but man, I just wanted to start flinging all those stupid bags. I just felt like they were going to wrap around me.

I am not a snuggler, I never want to cocoon, but I don't long for wide open spaces, either. I guess I'm like "Goldilocks", in that everything has to be "just right". Whew... I just needed to get that off my chest.

My hubby has been going through old pictures, getting ready to put a new video on Youtube, and he found an interesting one of me, that I am going to post soon. When you get the chance, be sure to watch our video of our trip to Salvation Mountain. You can click on the side bar to watch it, or you can go directly to our Youtube site. We have also added a video of my late mother-in-law. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. Barbara was so special and this video makes me miss her. My hubby looks so much like her it is uncanny.

I guess that's all for now. I'll be back and hopefully more like myself later. Take care. Don't let life "box you in".

Bonjour Susan! So many people are feeling awkwards these days ... Must be everything mixed together, the pre-elections and the economic vibes swirled together with summer-is-over and Xmas-is-coming-soon pressure. Lots of people are feeling more tired than usual too. I had a weird spell but feel better... Don't forget full moon is almost here too ... Take good care of yourself! LuLu

Hi Susan, I hope you are better soon, I have it when I don't feel like myself. I wanted to say thank you for the prayers for my son. He is going to have an MRI on the 18th. Hugs to you my friend, Renea

How peculiar!
Maybe it was just one of those "off" days.
I hope you are feeling better soon.
