I’m having one of those days.
Nothing is working, including my brain the way I need it to today.
And that makes me crabby (which is a really nice word for what it really is). I don’t like being a witch. Or bitch.
Depends on your point of view, I guess.
I wonder if menopause is just playing with my hormones like marbles?
It would explain a lot.
All I know for sure is I have a headache in proportion to the amount of laundry sitting, staring me down, waiting to be done. And nothing is helping. Not even the 3rd Diet Coke. Or the piece of chocolate cake.
And I can’t get to the ibuprofen….
I can’t find my lightsaber.
Thank goodness for cats and dogs. Bless their hearts, they really do try. It makes me smile. Usually.
I really do try to put myself in a good mindset when I first wake up! I have my list of to-do ready! But sometimes….
The crux of the matter is this:
But in reality, I believe this is what really happened when I wasn’t really paying attention.
Which isn’t a bad way to spend time at all. It’s just when reality intrudes with that “to-do” list and my brain won’t work the way I need it to. Some people say then it’s time to try something different — shake things up a bit.
One of my favorite writers, Anne Lamott says:
Maybe that’s the problem: I’ve thought “Oh, I can do that”, “oh, and that too”, and “oh yes, of course, that won’t be a problem at all”. And typically, they aren’t. But perhaps I just need to put it all down for a few minutes (days?). Unplug. Then try again. Reboot the system. Clear out the cache. Make room for new ideas. After that, THEN we can look at rewiring the Matrix and find new ways to do things.
Until Friday, Friends. Cheers!
