Down in the Drumps…


Yesterday…I was…drumpy…that’s my new word…for what you get when you cross…drained…and…grumpy…honestly…I wanted to shut my door…and not see another living soul all day…but…now that I type that…I realize…I certainly wasn’t in the mood for…spending time with…unliving souls…either…

I just wasn’t…in the mood

Luckily…I don’t have…drumpy days…all that often…but…when I do…it is actually…Bertha’s…way of reminding me…that I’m not taking good care of myself…I’m not…nurturing my spirit in the ways that I know sustain me…I’m getting busy…I’m letting things slide…I’m not spending my…quiet time…and…maybe…I’m not getting enough rest…

So…I took a nap when I got home…and…went to bed even earlier than usual…and…this morning…I’m up early enough…to have some quiet time…and still get to work on time…

Honestly…Bertha…says…a bit of the…drumps…is a good thing…because it lets me know…before I get totally out of balance…and get sick or depressed…that…I need to take some time for myself…
