A very productive day but what now?

I haven't been sleeping good this last week.  Last night I woke up at 2:30 and couldn't get back to sleep so I started working on some of my household chores I had to do.  I've already cleaned my house spotless from one end to the other which is a great thing but I don't have to be at school today so what do I do now?  Its weird when my husband was still living here I never stayed on top of things like this but now that he's gone I keep everything done.  I've never been so productive before so why don't I feel a sense of accomplishment?  Instead I sit around here moping because I don't have enough to do.  I never thought I would wish to have a job but it would be nice to have something to do everyday and bring in extra money on top of that.  I just can't wait until I finish up school so I can go to work.  I do have to exercise in alittle while and run a few errands so that should take up some of my time but its going to be a long day. 
Changing the subject yesterday I went bike riding with my kids.  Its been a very long time since I've been on a bike and its alot harder than I remember.  Well last night I kept having these pains in kind of a private area if you know what I mean, it felt like I was bruised or something.  I couldn't figure out what I had done to cause this but this morning it hit me it was from bike riding.  Will getting a different seat help this or does it just take sometime to get use to riding a bike?  I wanted to ride again today but I don't know how comfortable its going to be if I try.  I may just do it every other day.


  1. Getting a different seat will help a lot! I just got a bike and the seat was horrible! so it made riding it difficult. but i got a new seat, I can ride forever, or until my legs give out... :)

  2. I found I used to go completely numb then later when the feeling returned I was very sore- I found wearing different shorts helped, ones that didn't work their way up my leg while i rode.

  3. I think a new seat will help, but it will also get better as your body gets used to it, I think. I used to ride a bike quite a bit and found that to be the case when I first started.

    Your days will eventually get better, but it sounds like you're channeling your loneliness and pain in the right direction.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Thanks for the advice everyone. I rode again yesterday and it was kind of painful when I was riding but I don't seem to be as sore today so maybe I'll get use to it.
    Charlotte I'm definitely trying to channel my loneliness and pain into something positive. I've been cleaning like a crazy woman and my exercise has increased to so lets hope I'm over the bad part.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
