I arrived home from work this afternoon in a foul mood, having nearly fallen asleep behind the wheel from the sheer exhaustion. I spent the entire day going at full throttle, trying to catch up from all the snow days we’ve had at school. There is so much work to do. Luckily, I remained awake, collected the mail from the box at the end of the driveway (always a dangerous mission) and when I pulled up to the house, I found a soaking wet box, sitting in the rain – a delivery from FedEx. All I could think of was that it was the new card stock that I had just ordered.
And my foul mood deepened.
Carrying everything into the house, I knocked over the snow shovel, earning me a ‘look’ from my husband who cheerfully asked me if I was having a bad day. Note to all you cheerful people out there: Don’t be all smiles and light when someone is having a bad day. It’s always best to give us a wide berth. And some time to cool down.
Normally, I would change my clothes and head outside for a walk but something is up with my ankle and I’m taking the day off. I believe that the snow boots I’ve been wearing for the past several weeks are the cause for the ankle pain, so I’ve been wearing a brace all day. I think a walk would be good for my mood, but I know it’s the wrong thing for the ankle.
Things must be really bad, because I poured myself a drink, something I rarely do, breaking my ‘no drinking during the week’ rule. Thankfully my husband had the courtesy to keep his mouth shut.
Things could be worse - oh Lord do I ever know that things could be worse. I apologize for not being my normal self today.
One bright spot is that it wasn’t the card stock that was in the soaking wet box but rather an Emile Henry pie plate that was a free gift from CSN Stores for hosting their recent giveaway on my blog.
That was a nice surprise.
And the black and white is trying his best to make me feel better. God, I love this dog.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
Please tell me your day was better.
