Spontaneous Slumping


Returning from a slump.

I now call this period Spontaneous Slumping.

I considered calling this Slouch Slumping.

And then there was Lump Slumping.

A near runner up was Grump Slumping.

But Spontaneous Slumping won out, 'cause that is how it happens.

For me Spontaneous Slumping looks like this:
  • One day I am "great guns" doing everything, the next day I am not - sort of like catching a virus!
  • One day leads to another of doing nothing ... and another and another ... and then 3 weeks of absolutely nothing have accumulated.
  • My life starts "tripping," and bad things start happening to people I care about and I find myself thinking - "Gosh, was this slump a psychic warning of bad things?"
  • I decide that I am over thinking this.   Thinking this was psychic anything means I have hit the bottom of my slump.
  • Finally I don't like who I am in a slump - so I start kicking myself in the butt.
So now that I am past the butt kicking stage, I am back to:
  • walking
  • tracking my step counts and milage
  • stretching
  • blogging
  • making my "to do" lists
  • doing the stuff on my "to do" lists  :-)
  • planning
The bad things have settled down again.  We are all coping.  And at least the "badies" seemed to have stopped dumping down on everyone's head at the same time.

Working on a few posts to share some of the good things that happened while I was slumping!

We all need some down time, some catch your breath time, now and again. Onward!

I prefer the sound of 'Lump Slumping'. Although, as I'm known as 'Grumpy' by my grandchildren, maybe 'Grump Slumping' would be more appropriate. However; I'm far too busy to embrace either!
