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.
I feel much better now.
