So it seems that on all sites I go on, 3-5pm is the "dead" time where no one else seems to be on and posting except me. I guess it's that time when people are leaving work or prepping dinner. I just feel lonely and reading/responding to messages makes me feel good. Not to mention I'm home alone with just my dogs who are all sleeping. I tried to take a nap since I'm tired but I can't sleep. I have this big article due in a few days that I was writing with a professor and I have no motivation to do it. I'm out of school, but I continued this project with him since we started it a while back. Guess I'll try to lay down again until things get more active. Not in the mood to read or write for the article. Can't do it when I'm feeling tired anyway. shakehead

Hi Alaskah,

I am sorry that you are feeling lonely. I hope that by the time you read this, you are feeling better. Sometimes a nap does us good. But I always feel crappy when I get up so I very seldom nap anymore.

Wake your dogs up and take them out for a walk if the weather isn't too cold where you are. I walked mine this morning. But it was a short walk so we are going to go back out again. Mine is sleeping now too. But that doesn't last long as she is very demanding at times. Wants cookies all the time. But I love her. What kind of dogs do you have? I have a german shepherd.

I hope that you are feeling better soon. Keep posting. It usually helps.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks guys. I have a Sheltie, an American Eskimo, and a Border Collie/Blue Heeler mix. It is getting pretty cold here so I wasn't much up for a walk. I did take a nap but naps make me feel pretty groggy too. I really should try to get started on that article now...

Somedays there are people on here in the chatroom, maybe take a moment to peek in there
sometimes others will drop in if someone is there...yeah that time of day does seem to be
a dry time, at 3 p.m. my lil kitty chancellor will jump up on me, knead me and settle down for
a nap and then his 3 other brothers settle down for a few moments and I will nod off with them,
sometimes a nap can help...do you have any hobbies, crafts maybe a good book, something
that will keep you busy for that time and then look forward to it each day..maybe get a pet
if you can, cats are great companions Balinese cats tend to be people oriented cats, or maybe a dog.
But dogs can be a lot harder to train...Many well wishes and hope your mood lifts soon...
Keep us posted as we do care.

Hi Alaskah

3-5 is also when kids come home fromschool, at least for me. I ask questions about her day and she rolls her eyes at me -lolol it's fun!!

Seriously, a few of us still have kids at home. I like to make her something to eat since school lunch is full of fat, sodium or is gross. And we review homework, projects cause she is ADHD. She makes good grades and behaves well but bottles up all that restlessness and it comes out attitude or frustration when she gets home.

I can't nap either, sleep like poo too...just a part of this DD.Feel better, your winters could have something to do with it?

Take care
Maggie

Your dogs sound cool. I had an australian cattledog mix but had to put her to sleep in May. She was 15. I spent a lot of time with her. She was brindle so I think she had some pitbull in her. She was so cool. I use to have four dogs at one time. I always liked the shepherds. Big dogs for me I guess. My dog now isn't really large though for a shepherd. She goes about 70 pounds, but is starting to fill out being she will be two in January. She is spoiled rotten though. I can't talk on the phone without her interupting. Always wanting a cookie. Brat...

I guess you are right, a lot of people are doing things at that time of day. I check in quite often though, so you will probably see me around. I hope that you are having a good evening. Take care, keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

Maggie - Perhaps it is the weather. It became so cold so fast, which means increased joint and back pain =( I wouldn't say I have seasonal affective disorder though, since I do feel it through the summer as well. But I sure don't like the forecast for snow in my area tomorrow!

Yes, I did forget to mention kids. My parents never did ask me about my day or help me with anything, so I'm not used to thinking of that after-school quality time. That's great that you try to be so involved - despite the eye-rolling.

Karen - My Border Collie/Heeler (Piper) is a nut. She's only two and is so hyper. You should see how she picks on the other dogs, I think I would go crazy. She paws them by their tails and will start chewing at them to get them to play. She is spoiled rotten too. Sleeps in my bed with me at night while the other 2 go up in my parents' room. She's so darn cute though, I just can't help but keep spoiling.

Hi Jamie =)

Hmm, trying to get my signature figured out. It's not doing what I want it to do.

Jamiee is in Australia and we have a member from NZ I think

Welcome to our place.Glad you feel comfortable here...these are good peoplehere. I don't go out very much (not quite agoraphobic as self-isolating) either, but also make myself do things everyday.

Oh and let's not forget we have some from British Isles too.

Alaskah-sorry your parents did not interact with you. i can't imagine not talking to her , I miss her when she has sleepovers. She leaves for college in 2 years, so I'd better get a life soon-lol.

I had an Australian sheepdog 40 years , sooo smart and sweet. Her name was Blue fromall the different colors. Now we have 2, one is our 12 lb chiweenie (dachshund/chihuahua) named Sally and our 120lb lab/retriever/? mix named Sweetie (we think she is a little mentally retarded like a Downs baby)

Anyway freedom welcome, keep posting...you have come a really long hard road but keep walking...it is a journey.

Maggie
