Calvin and I were pretty down (dooby doo) over the weekend. Nothing specific was bad, it’s just that nothing specific was good either. Other than the old standby of being in (relatively) good health (Calvin’s got some throat thing going on), having a nice home and food to eat and clothes to wear, and having each other. All very good things to be happy about.

But, not enough to keep us out of the doldrums. Perfectly normal, to have a nice life and yet feel down sometimes. And apparently I should NOT put the pressure on myself of expecting myself to be in a good mood all the time, just because I’ve gotten my depression and anxiety under control.

It seemed that all we wanted to do was sleep. We both took a long nap late Friday afternoon, slept in on Saturday, took a nap Saturday afternoon, slept in Sunday, AND took a nap Sunday afternoon.

Today? I am awake.

It concerns me when our down moods coincide like that. Neither of us can lift the other out of the blues, and so we sink and wallow and sleeeeeep. We need a positive life change in a BIG way. The more we think about it, the more we want to move away from AZ, and change careers, and do something that involves the both of us together. I think we’re one of those lucky couples that would not kill each other if we had to work together.

Maine in May. And probably Oregon around September-ish. Anyone live there? Anyone been there? Anyone want to recommend some sights? We’re taking a long weekend to check out the area and see if it’s where we want to relocate.

In the meantime, we keep on with the keeping on. No more weekends like last weekend, though. I hope.
