Do you ever get cyclical days where you are just so tired you can't be bother to do anything, then feel fed up because you are bored?

I'm having one of those day. DH and I have a rare day off together and I always feel this pressure (my own) to "do something".

But the last few nights DD has woken up a few times and I haven't really caught up and feel really knackered, don't do well on tiredness.

The trouble is now I feel too tired and lethargic to do anything, yet at the same time so frustrated and bored. DH is being good and going to take DD out for a couple of hours, and I'm not sure what I am going to do. There are a few things that I want to or feel like I should do, read something "worthy", knitting, or just Do Something Creative, some exercise, or I am just going to feel like I've wasted the day.

Anyone else get this sort of cyclical frustrating days?

yes i'm having one now - feel like I can't be arsed to do anything but at the same time bored is a familiar feeling. Also lonely but don't want to actually see anybody else!

I had 5 days like this on the trot, while my 3 were at the in laws.

I tried not to feel I was 'wasting' the days, but to indulge the abject laziness I felt.

It was hard, I always had that inner voice telling me everything that needed doing in the house. I ignored that voice! And did bugger all. And felt renewed and rested because of it.

Well DH has taken DD out for a couple of hours and I am watching Come Dine With Me and eating a homemade brownie! But I can't shake that feeling of doing something more worthwhile, only because I complain about not being able to do that sort of thing with DD around.

I think it has to do with a wider feeling of not achieving in my life, yet not feeling motivated enough to do anything about it, or really knowing what I want to be doing.

Glad it's not just me though (you know what I mean!).
