I just can't be bothered

Honestly, I can't. I guess I've succumbed to the end of the month blues. I don't even think "blues" is the word to use. Laziness is more like it. I just can't be bothered to carry on, I'd rather just wait. I know i have around 100 notifications to sift through, so many eagerly awaiting my response I am sure. No, I'd rather just wait. Instead I'll sit here and make another discussion bound to gather atleast a few more notifications. Was it just me or did the "End of the month" standstill come a little later this year? Despite it being Christmas, people were still active. I don't know if it's quite "dead" around here yet as I've not been on to know... but it does seem a bit quieter at the very least. I'll get back to everyone as soon as possible. Yesterday my arm was hurting me (further down my wrist) so I took the time to catch up with other things.

I am active here as often as I can. Though I don't have any more classes, I am trying to get my house back in order and then when my son goes back to school, I am going to work on my queries and manuscripts. In the meantime I am enjoying the rest (Like last Friday, I don't have to be at the shop this Friday) and my house is almost in the pre-college stage, and that makes me happy. Sorry you are feeling so blue, pain can do that. Did you injure your arm?

I think my arm is on some sort of a revolt. It's partially because of work (stock clerk) and partially because of the way I have my arms when I am typing on the keyboard. I do need a bit of a lower set up. I'd bring my laptop to the kitchen table and work there but I'm afraid it would get a little too loud as they like to blare the t.v.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Ah, I see. Have you looked into stretching and strengthening exercises? I have what I call a "bum" elbow, where if I don't keep my upper and lower arms muscles strong, the elbow starts hurting to where I can't lift anything heavier than a piece of paper.

@Carmelanirel2 The place that it is hurting is in an odd place. I think I could probably use weights to help it, but then again just working should help as well. I don't want to overuse it as I work with my hands a lot.

I have been busy here all day long. It is after 8 and it's slowing down a little. Better than most days though I wished for it like this. Good luck with your evening.

I've been doing swagbucks the last two days because I was close to a $25.00 gift card. It was also easier since I didn't have to use the arm with the pain. I'm gonna try to be more active Wednesday and Thursday here though.

@sharon6345 yup I've done a few of those. I'm waiting for the daily goal to reset before I start again. 2 1/2 hours.

Sometimes we just need a good long sleep, and a nice soak in the tub, right?

@ScribbledAdNauseum That's a plan if I've ever heard one.

@softbabe44 Too bad the bathtub here is so cramped and tiny! I'd love a jacuzzi tub right about now.

I hope the blues go away. You have to do what you can. People may not be able to get to all of their notifications due to other obligations. It's nothing to stress over.

True as there are many more real life worries to ponder.

@ScribbledAdNauseum We shouldn't worry but we do. I try not to worry and that's why I p[ray harder.

THank You. It is doing better today, which is good as i have to work soon. I was considering calling out if it wasn't doing better, but then I am not that type of employee either. I suppose from other site you mean "bubble?" I was there as well.

It doesn't matter to me whether it's end of the month, sometimes I just feel the laziness. I just do not feel like doing anything, and just let myself do whatever I feel like doing. After some time, I'll just get back to the normal mode. I always think it's good to let ourselves be lazy sometimes. Hope you'll be back soon, and have your arm get well soon.

I am here now. I took myself a bit of a nap. I just saw all the notifies and said nope, not right now. My arm does feel better but as I was telling another person below, I will be calling out if I wake up with ti aching again.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Hope your arm is well now, since it's been a few days.

It can be hard sometimes. There are times when I don't always have the motivation to go through notifications and such. I think a lot of us go through it.

I am doing better today with it. Of course I have to go to my real life job here shortly. Isn't that how it works? When you are motivated to do something, you always have something else more important?

I have been sorta busy, but right now I have limited time on this computer. I try to get everything done on the computer before my fiancé wakes up.

It's hard when you can only be online for certain times of the day. I know that the ones who do more article based writing have to be on all the time!

Oh I do love to be here, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming! I try to get back to everyone, and feel bad when I am unable to do so.

My wrist feels better but if it acts up again tomorrow then I won't be going to work. I'm not killing a limb for no one.
