Lethargy? Check.
Difficulty with concentration caused by randomly occurring poignant memories? Check.
Unexpected, embarrassing crying jag? Check.

No, it's not menstrual. It's the tenth anniversary of my grandfather's death.

Oh, Grief. It's so cute the way you sneak up and bite me on the arse when I'm not looking. And by "cute" I mean "evil and underhanded". Time was supposed to help heal you, but it turns out he buggers off on holiday with no advance notice at the critical moment.

Thank you. He & my grandmother were like a second set of parents to me, so their loss still affects me pretty strongly, even though they died years ago.

Damn. I'm glad you've come up with a reason (I hate feeling rudderless w/ no idea why) but I'm sorry all the same. I hope you can find peace soon.

Thank you. I did the whole light-candle-have-a-little-cry thing and then went to bed. It helped.

I'm dreading Sunday, though. The bloke says we should do something fun so I don't brood, which is probably a good idea. Why does my birth month have to be such a mixed bag? :P Sept 7: Pa's death. Sept 11: ... Sept 22: my birthday. Sept 29: Pa's birthday. Argh! Confusion!
