Everything Is Awful and I’m Not Okay: Questions to Ask Before Giving Up

I’ve seen a few versions of this and I absolutely love it. Right now I’m actually doing pretty good despite how bad things have been going in my life lately. I tend to get very depressed this time of year. Maybe it’s the switch in seasons. I don’t know. Summer has always been a depressing time for me. So I want to stick ahead of the curve and remember things that will help me when I’m starting to go very low.

I’ve also got the DBT coloring cards that are amazing. I’m aware there’s an Etsy boycott going on right now, but I purchased these in the past so it’s not really something I can take back. It also looks like the price of the DBT color cards went down so that means it’s more affordable.

I have my own version of the page posted on the wall by our bed. It’s not the neatest quality. I’m hoping to eventually draw something better on the tablet once I’ve got the urge to art again. I still haven’t done the newest Inktober52 prompt for last week yet and the new one should be posted tomorrow. I’m falling behind!

Guh, I’m exhausted from the puppies and also trying not to be too hard on myself.

I haven’t worked on my SMART goals, but I’ve done just about everything else. Walk the puppies, feed the puppies, take the puppies to potty, and poop. Clean up after the puppies when they eventually somehow manage to ninja wake up and have an accident before you can get them outside. On top of the normal household chores. And karate. And taking care of my step-daughter. Oh, administering the child handling the puppies too. And then afterschool activities.

I also went a little insane and cleaned my step-daughter’s room. There were about 10 shoe boxes that needed to go out. I managed to collect an entire trash bag of miscellaneous things like broken toys, candy wrappers, empty containers, and art supply trash (i.e. edges of cut pages leftover and too small to use for other projects, used up glue bottles, etc.) I found a candy stash of old opened Halloween candy that definitely was no longer good. And a ziplock bag of Nerd candy from two school years ago. SIGH. Are anyone else’s pre-teens hoarders?

The puppies are either all-out combative with each other. Tiny giant balls of energy. Or passed the fuck out like it’s the end of the world. So hard to be a puppy in this day in age. Thanks for stopping by today, guys. Sorry for the chaotic nature of this post. Hopefully tomorrow my sanity will return.

(Happy 420 to those who are in states where you can celebrate it.)
