By disposition, I'm a cheerful person.  I wake up cheerful and I go to bed cheerful.  At least the great majority of the time.

Today I've been in a funk.  I think it's been building for a while.  I spend a lot of time alone and am feeling quite lonely and homesick today.  I think the idea of my birthday Saturday so far from home is weighing on me.

The good news is that these kinds of days don't last for me and tomorrow I have a meeting I'm looking forward to.

I've been reporting pretty fully on my days here, so thought that, even if it's not up-beat, I'd report on this one too.


  1. Every body deserves a blah day every once in awhile. Bently says hi, wants to know what you are bringing him from your trip.

  2. Maybe you need something good to eat. When I was in Germany I missed Iceberg lettuce... isn't that odd? I know you'll be out of your funk in no time, enjoy your meeting. And I'll have a beer for you on Saturday! Prost!

    It's going to be snowing in the southern tier this weekend... I'm not ready for Winter.

  3. We'll have a Boston Creme Pie, in your honor, on Saturday. That'll put the shine back in your smile, and the smile back in my tummy!! Ma says, "Tell your uncle not to worry about me. I'm fine!" Love....

  4. I will be gracious enough to drink a bottle of wine in your honor on Saturday night! We will toast a dear friend! I am good at funks - they come and go. Remember though, if you never had them you wouldn't appreciate the highs as much! We miss ya!! {{{HUGS}}} ~Donna
