Somedays are like that....
Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Yesterday was just yicky. I do mean yicky. I hate headaches, and I know it was allergy related. At the moment, our trees don't know what the heck is up. They are SO confused with temps getting up into the 80s in FEBRUARY. So they are leafing it up and giggling at all the havoc they are creating for us mere mortals who struggle with allergies. Yesterday was a headache day, but today I'm good. I'm going to the pool...in just a few minutes...and getting head start on the day.
Lots of things are happening this week in my house. Cabinet guy is supposed to start putting on the refinished doors and putting my cabinets back together. 100 Days of Weight Loss is starting tomorrow, and I'm excited. 100 Days is a forum based on Linda Spangler's book, 100 Days of Weight Loss: The Secret to Being Successful on any Diet Plan. This is my first time to work through the book as a group, and it is an excellent book. I'm collecting estimates to finish up the remodeling in my house. And on Friday, we leave for Hot Springs to pick up a "friend" for Mr. Flufferbutt--Harley McFierce, my cockapoo. He is getting a little brother. LOL! Seamus McFierce will be a little fur ball of energy, and I can't wait to meet him!
This morning is so different than yesterday, and even though I am a wimp when dealing with pain, I also know a lot of it has to do with attitude. Some days I just cope with the "slings and arrows" better than others. I'm thinking yesterday I was having a bit of a pity party. Don't know why--I had a really excellent weekend. I manage to walk 3 laps at the park for the first time. I walked 2 laps in 20 minutes and had to add more distance because I was walking faster. That was a REAL accomplishment for me, and I was so excited!
I'm wondering if there is something I can do each morning to improve a bad attitude. Yesterday I just didn't "want to." Do you have days like this? And if you do, what do you do to make your day better rather than falling into the pity party trap? I think part of the problem is that I have so much to do, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Maybe if I can work on alleviating that feeling, things will go better. I know one thing, I definitely need to get some things done before the fluff ball gets here because it's just like bringing home a baby. Yes, it will be fun, and he will be hilarious, and it will be fun to watch Harley and Seamus get to know one another....but just like children, it will be a lot of work.
Today the pool...tomorrow the world. LOL! God bless...lifting each and every one of you up and hoping you have a great week!
