EVEN POLLYANNA HAS A BAD DAY


It occurred to me today that I may have given you the impression by omission that my life is all big, puffy hearts, glitter and pixie dust. Don't I wish? This post might seem a bit strange coming on the heels of my lemonade post where I patted myself on the back for my mad lemonade making skills. Don't get me wrong. I do have a Pollyanna outlook. I am Mary Sunshine……………most of the time. When my dear D1 was thirteen years old, she told me, "The problem with you, Mom, is that you think all the skies in your world should be blue all the time. Life just isn't like that." Damn.

I choose to post the good stuff. At times, I will write of challenges, heartbreaks or personal meltdowns but for the most part, I try to keep what we do here…………."surprisingly….upbeat." (Movie, anyone? Anyone?) I figure we've all got crap in our lives. Sometimes, it is what bonds us. I just choose not to go there……………………..most of the time.

Somebody pooped in my cornflakes today. I don't actually eat corn flakes but "pooped in my yogurt and granola" didn't have the same ring. I'm not going to talk about it because it's work related. I just wanted to put it out there and keep it honest. I had a rough day and needed lots of wine to whine.

No worries. I know what to do and where to go when the blues threaten.


My Harley Stud, D2 and I went for a walk on the beach.


There was a full moon rising.

I feel much better now.

Oh crap, and I gave you a hard time today. We poke at each other in fun and you and I know it's all in fun but sometimes other people might wonder.....but just for the record.....I love you dearly and when you hurt I hurt. I hope you have a better day tomorrow and I promise I'll go easy on you.

oh, and one more thing.....MUAH!

Full moon yesterday. Not sure if that has much to do with it, but I usually notice a correlation.
Walking on the beach is an excellent idea. Something about the ions in the salt air are good for your brain when stressed.
Thanks for the photos!

lisa said...

That's a pretty good place to forget your woes. I usually forget mine in a bag of Doritos and a box of wine.

Hope you're better today.

Gaston Studio said...

The beach... an excellent choice. Hope you're coping better today.

Oh Sheesh. I hate days like that. I'm so sorry you had a bad one at work. I know how it feels and makes it tough to go in the next day. Thank goodness for MHS, D1, and beaches. Oh yeah and good friends too.

Hope today is a good one! and PS...I need to give you my number...cuz you really need to call me when the stuff starts hitting the fan. I'm a good listener!

Jan said...

I'm with you - I don't post much about the bad things. I understand completely where you're coming from.

I'm sorry you had a bad day, and again I understand completely about it being work-related so you won't post about it. But I'm glad MHS took you on your beach walk and you feel better.

(((SMB))) We love ya, hon.

smiles4u said...

I'm sorry you had a rough day. What a beautiful walk you had. Glad that you feel better. Sending you love and hugs my friend, Lori ((((((HUGS))))))

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

I'll send you a pooper scooper to eat your yogurt with.. that way you can avoid eating poop with your breakfast.

We all have poopie days once in a while.

Hugz at ya
Di

Wunderwoman said...

Wonderful photos! I like them much better than the new sea of snow we got! Poop in the cornflakes..sounds bad. Hope your day is better today.. I just try to keep it real over on my blog..and sometimes real is depressing..I try to add some humor..sometimes I probably share too much:)

Anyone who is Mary Sunshine all of the time is lying or has had a lobotomy.
I got "there" all the time :-0. ~Mary

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh..and you were great company too! :)

Auntie, aka cagny said...

(gasps for breath)

Okay, had to get that out.

Hope you're feeling better soon, love... sorry my Mondays rubbed off on you!

MLS-Taking the crap you dish out is one of the favorite parts of my day. Don't stop. I don't think I could handle it if you were nice to me. LOL

Erin-Hmmm? And I thought it was just the sand between my toes.

Lisa-I did have a better day, thanks.

Gaston-Yes, I am. Thanks.

Fancy-Today was better but send me that number. Be warned tho, I have a cell phone and I know how to use it.

Jan-But if I did talk, oh the stories I could tell. LOL

Smiles-Thanks, Lori. We have to have the bad days to appreciate the good ones. Isn't that what you said?

Di-ROFL @ pooper scooper for my yogurt.

WW-It was great but MHS wasn't too happy about eating dinner at 10pm. I imagine BigBlock would feel the same.

Lo-Ding, ding, ding! You got it! But you already knew that. You are right, of course. I am lucky.

FarSide-I can't share too much. Too many family members read my blog. LOL

F&M-I guess I'm about 80/20. 80% Mary Sunshine and 20% my evil twin, Skippy.

Mona-I enjoyed it. I'm glad you did too.

Auntie-LOL

LiLu-You got it! Do I need to get you a paper bag? I love that movie. I think it was the full moon.

blueviolet said...

That scenery would surely give me new perspective also. Gorgeous!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Sorry you had a bad day. Hope all is going much better. Those shots are amazing. I'm with you - a walk on the beach always helps my low moods.

Tessa said...

Pissed to hear you're pissed. You already have my cell number. Use it at any time. Mwah.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

BV, Pseudo and Tessa-All is well with the world again. My bad moods don't last long........thanks to the Atlantic Ocean, palm trees and some sand. Well, that and sweet tea vodka.

Snowbrush said...

I think that announcing drunk check-points discriminates against people who are dumb or technologically illiterate. Sounds like a hate crime to me.
