What the....

I spent all yesterday feeling...unsettled, restless, anxious. I couldn't figure out why. I didn't have anything pressing that HAD to be done by the end of the day. From the outside looking in, it was a relaxing and uneventful Sunday.

So, why wasn't I relaxed?

Now, I did have a few things on my list for the day that I didn't get accomplished. But it wasn't anything that couldn't wait. I was going to bathe the dogs, which I didn't do. And I was going to take down the holiday decorations...also not done. But I did wash all the bedding, visited with my Mom, walked the dogs, and walked myself. I blogged, I played on facebook, I even went to Church that morning (on the Internet). See..plenty was done.

So, why did I feel so restless?

I thought maybe I was just bored, and maybe that was a little bit of it. But I also felt almost anxious...when I had no reason to be. And then it hit me. I have the after holiday blues. I'm not sure I have ever experienced this before. The idea of getting back to normal is both appealing and unattractive to me right now. I'm having anxiety about the year to come and all the things I hope to accomplish. Its overwhelming..which is crazy..because the year has barely started.
