Late Bits of This and That

Friday night... late Friday night. I never stay up this late. My bedtime is usually by 10 pm. I find that I am able to sleep late in the morning because I don't have a little one to let outside. My sleep has been restless. I sleep 4 or 5 hours then lay awake an hour or so and then go back to sleep. Today, I am running on coffee.

Yesterday, I went to a different church ladies study as the one I usually go to doesn't start until October. I thought it was a study but it was more of a large (75+) group of ladies that meet, eat, and listen to a speaker. The people I did speak to were very nice as much as you can tell with short awkward conversations. Still, I felt very anxious. I stayed for the entire 2 hours but I don't think I will go back. I don't do well in crowds of people I don't know. I get anxious just thinking about it. Oh bother.

I'm glad that I tried the group but it isn't my cup of tea. I'm loooking forward to October.

  1. Hi Gina~

    I wish I were there to give you a warm hug, it sounds like you need one about now. I'm still up and it's almost 11:00 p.m. I'm so glad I decided to check my blog, because you were the first on my blog list. Life can certainly throw us some curves, can't it?

    I'm so much like you, I don't like to be around large groups of people, especially people I don't know, but, I know that it stretches me and makes be stronger to do so. I'm so proud of you for going to the study, it was very brave. October will be here before we know it, and you will be able to be with the group of ladies that you know and love. Until then, know that you are someone close to my heart, prayed for and thought of often sweet friend.

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

    1. Thank you, Barb. I am feeling better today. I am proud of myself for trying it and disappointed in myself for being anxious. I know there isn't anything I can do to change that so I do my best to be kind to myself. Your words, hugs, and prayers are greatly appreciably dear friend. xx

  3. It is the same for me, I had a hard time at first I would wake up when Peanut normally woke me up to go out, which was around 5:30, but now I have slept in Until 7:30, I am finding I am getting a good 8 or more hours of sleep.
    I think you did very good for being anxious with that many people and actual stayed the whole time... I am not the greatest with people I don't know either, and do prefer smaller groups but I think it is great that you got out and gave it a try even if it wasn't for you. Our ladies group started back up this past Wednesday.

  4. October will be here before you know and you can once again meet with ladies' group. Good on you for going out of your comfort zone and giving the group a go. I too, would rather meet in a group where I know the people rather than newbies. It's okay you know, to feel a little uncomfortable and anxious in a new setting. Sending you a hug, lovely Gina. Xx
