I don’t usually have a hard time adjusting to the time change. It always feels a little strange the first day or two after we spring forward or fall back, but it’s kind of a nice change of pace most of the time.  This time, though, I’ve been feeling sluggish, tired, unmotivated, bored, and irritable ever since Sunday, when we turned back the clocks.  I don’t know if it really is the time change, but that’s the only thing I can pin point that changed, other than my mood.  The days at work drag, tutoring seems interminable, I nap in the middle of the day and am still exhausted at night, I go to bed early and still can’t seem to wake up in the morning.  I’m irritable, bored, and just want to crawl into a dark cave and sleep.  Even my art has been difficult and more annoying than fun.  So today I decided to just draw how I feel, and came up with this dark, sluggish picture, created with messy, smeary kids’ oil pastels.  Now I’m going to crawl into bed.

  1. Love the deep blue sky and I can so relate to how you feel. The time changes always throw me for a loop and I feel off and out of sorts for at least a week. At least we are in this together.

  2. I’m 100% sure you’re not alone feeling as you do right now. It’s the stupid clock changing we’re forced to do, it’s the seasons, fall and summer, fighting with each other, it’s the getting dark earlier, it’s all that and more rolled into one. Your picture is a perfect example of how most of us are feeling right now. Hang on, my sweet………….nothing is forever. Love you, Mom xxoo
