Okay, so today is better. I am taking a "mental health day" from work. Heaven knows, I need it. But, even if I wasn't off from the job today, I am better. Most days, I feel pretty happy, pretty lucky to be alive. Recently, not so much. But, I am getting my batteries re-charged, little by little. I generally don't let the little things get to me, but in the past few weeks, I have let that rule slide and look where it got me. So...I am back to talking myself out of it. It works, at least for me.
I feel for those in the south eastern part of the country---two feet of snow in DC? Good heavens, this winter has been wild. More snow for Iowa today, but nothing compared. However, we have already had our two feet, our one foot, two blizzards, two ice storms, about a thousand white knuckle drives to work so if it has to happen, I am happy that it's not going to happen here.
My beautiful daughter will be thirty, yes-I said 30 on Sunday. How can that be? I am only thirty...
For today, I think I will get to see my Brodie. What better way to cure the blues? If I don't I will spend a quiet day, reading. That too, sounds good. Plus, I am going to get my nails done, one way or another. Happy Friday!
