I'm being a wah wah baby (as Alex likes to say)

Alex's favorite expression is wah wah baby.  Like when I'm complaining or in general unhappy with the world.

So today I'm just in a funk.  No real explanation.  I'm sure working from home isn't helping.  I need to be more disciplined about working at my desk, wearing proper work clothes, etc.

I got up and showered as I do every single day.  I haven't been so bad as to just work from the bed (ha!) but I chose my velour pants and snuggled up on the couch with my laptop all day.  Why this would make a huge difference mentally over working at my desk is crazy.  But it matters.

And I knew that and did it anyway because I was just oh so comfortable on the couch.  Me and comfortable don't always work well together.  I need a little discipline and discomfort in my life it seems!

That's definitely a metaphor for my food and exercise habits too.


  1. I know it is not quite the same as working but being a stay at home mum I find when I am getting stuck in a rut or depressed it is when I don't get up have a shower get dressed and get ready for the day.

    I think getting into your work clothes is an excellent idea - you just feel fresher and brighter - well that is what I find anyway :-)

  2. Thanks Yvonne! I definitely see it being similar to being a stay at home mom in terms of the patterns and challenges with staying motivated and not being depressed.
