The Antidote to Ennui

Tuesday, May 05, 2020

I love the word Ennui- its a $20 word that means listless born out boredom and lack of purpose. It's one of those words really smart chic European women used in black and white movies, with a downward glance through very their long lashes while the blue grey smoke from their cigarette drifted up through said lashes. I never thought I could fit such an elegant word in my suburban life.

Then came shelter in place--- for a lot of weeks . On the one hand I have ennui but on the other hand I have Sparkpeople.

When I am bored, I have lots of videos to watch and even exercise too. I have a library of recipes to try out on my husband - who, by the way, is loving my new menus. I have message boards to read and answer. I have the new concept of Fast Breaks to break boredom.

While many of my friends are posting memes and complaining about gaining weight, packing on blubber, and having to find a method of keeping away from the refrigerator, I am losing weight, building muscle, and my relationship with the refrigerator is quite healthy.
