Something is Missing ... But I Don't Know What

I can't quite put my finger on it but something just hasn't felt right the past week or so. It's like something is missing from my life but I'm not exactly sure what it is or when it went missing or how I would even know it's missing if I don't know what it is but there it is - something just feels gone. I wish I knew how to better describe what I'm feeling but other than wanting to cry for no good reason and feeling rather bereft when I go to bed at night and lie there wondering why I feel this way and what has changed, I just don't know how to explain it. Suffice it to say, it hasn't really inspired me to do any blogging as I just don't know what on earth to write about or even how to write it.

Thankfully, Tisha @ CrAzY Working Mom gave me something to post about today when she awarded me this lovely little Friendship Award -

Tisha got the award from The Teach @ Work of the Poet who got it from Colin of Life who got it from Chuck @ Foster Me Up and Milton @ Bluedreamer’s Top 5. Beyond that, I have lost the trail ... does anyone know where this very nice little award originated??

Thank you so much, Tisha, for passing this on to me. It really means a lot and definitely cheered me up at a time when I'm just feeling kind of lost for no good reason. Maybe I need a compass?


  1. Hang in there! It must be the long winter and change of time... If I did not have my cruise to look forward to I would be totally down just from the above.

  2. i understand that feeling, i have had it before, hope it doesn't last too long...

    Hi Linda,
    I followed a google alert and it led me here :)
    Congrats on your awards, the second one originated from Milton @ Bluedreamers Top 5...no longer a mystery lol.

    Have a great day,
    Colin from Life

  4. You have had quite a time. Ever since you hurt your back I believe. I hope things get better soon. :)

    Hope things get better...I've been there and it's no fun.

  6. Hope you're feeling brighter real soon, Linda.

  7. Maybe you're just in a late winter funk.

    i hope you feel better soon

  10. I'm sorry you're feeling so down.
    Here's a hug.

  11. I'm sorry to read this, but I'll bet it's the time change.
    We all get the blahs. I know I do.

    Spring is just around the corner.


  12. Hon, if you find the compass, please let me know where! Sending you armsful of hugs!!!

  13. I don't have a compass handy, but I do have your rhetorical question answered and posted. I know it's not what you are missing right now, but it should bring a good chuckle. Everyone needs a good chuckle any time.
    TTFN Linda
    and thanks for playing!

  14. Mmmmm I felt the exact same way a couple of weeks ago, thankfully it didn't last. Nice award and even nicer that it cheered you up. x

  15. Oh, I forgot to post this! They say depression wreaks havoc with your memory - that's my excuse and I'm...
    what was I saying?

  16. sounds like a midlife crisis to me

    solution, cool car and younger man! (in that order)

    Are you feeling better now that you have a trip planned?
    Even if it's that far off, just knowing it's there is a good thing. It always helps me to have something to look forward to.

    U must be given some special worm company now. My advice is to go to a friends home to whom U didn't visited for long. U must feel great.
